Having an air conditioner trouble, especially in summer, could very well be a small but very constraining detail. In the city centre, you willingly open the windows of your Toyota Camry to let in air, but when you get on fast roadways, it quickly becomes complicated.
It could very well sometimes blow hot air while you asked it cold air, or it could work intermittently.
You might not like to pay repair costs without knowing if you could do it by yourself to repair your Toyota Camry.
The goal of this article is to make it possible for you identify these possible problems in order to fix them as quickly as possible.
First, we will try to focus on the symptoms you identify on the air conditioning failure of your Toyota Camry.
Different symptoms on your Toyota Camry air conditioner
You realize that it is not any longer effective, for example:
It works initially to finally only give back moisture and run out very quickly, or it works but with a particularly long time to cool effectively. Or also simpler, it simply does not cool down anymore.
First thing to think about at that time on your Toyota Camry, it is very likely that the gas charge is too limited. This may very well mean that there is a potential leak in the circuit. If this were the case, we really advise you to request the advice of a specialist and not do this on your own, it carries great risks for your Toyota Camry and more essentially your own health.
This factor is partly owing to the wear and tear of time, but also to the quality of your air conditioning system. To put it simply, if you have a top quality car, you are in theory much less bothered with this type of problem.
Also check you keep the air conditioning in good state all year round.
What does that mean? Simply use it every now and then for short moments during the year, which helps to avoid a “rust” of the system on your Toyota Camry. It uses up slightly more fuel, but since replacing your air conditioning system is much more expensive, you profit in the long run.
Different problems on your Toyota Camry air conditioner
Now let’s look at some of the problems you may face on your Toyota Camry. Take into account that your air conditioner system is a very complex system, made up of a multitude of parts that can potentially lead to failure.
First, as pointed out above, you may have a gas leak and consequently no pressure in the system.
Also, it is therefore likely that your compressor is out of order. Same observation as above, it is no longer possible to compress the gas, consequently no more pressure in the system.
Attached to this compressor of your Toyota Camry, a pulley allows it to rotate. If this one were to stop working, a chain reaction would happen with the compressor stopping, and therefore as mentioned above, no gas compression, no pressure…
We realize here that everything is linked and that each piece has a essential importance, just like a chain work, a single lacking link and the whole chain is stopped.
Another delicate point, still on the theme of pressure, if by chance a too great pressure was felt in the circuit, a sensor will then be turned on in order to stop the operation for safety. We can imagine here the work of a protection fuse on the electrical circuit of your Toyota Camry.
Regarding the temperature sensor, there may also be a failure. Just imagine that it is no longer able to identify the temperature of the inside of your Toyota Camry. As a result, it does not detect what to give the computer as information, which will lead to the air conditioning being switched off because of the lack of consistent data to be dealt with. Here again the air conditioning will have been turned off by the computer for safety reasons in order to avoid improbable situations, for example, where it is regarded as hot in your Toyota Camry and sends cold when it is the opposite.
If you were to work with a professional, here is an idea of the prices you would have to pay:
Let’s imagine that you reload your air conditioning with gas, it varies from 40 to 60€.
If, on the other hand, you had to replace your compressor, it would cost about 350€ new, much more affordable second-hand, around 150€.
So here is a set of complications you might face on your Toyota Camry, as you guessed, in most cases it is better to call on a professional to avoid potentially serious accidents. Remember that in the case of air conditioning, you handle compressed gas that is dangerous if you are not careful.
