Question about 1997 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

Strange AC problem on 97 Seville: AC won't blow cold unless I get the RPMs up to 3K or so, then works fine...sometimes goes off again, but a good rev and on it goes! Any ideas? Thanks, Ron

    Thanks! Can I purchase and install just the clutch, or do I have to buy the whole compressor unit?

    Sorry about the delay, but i'm not sure on this car. I would research the part itself in google. here's a link to a guy with your same problem but with a great photo journal of how it's done. It's not the same car but if this looks lke something you have the ability and resources to do then i say go for it. I've done a few my self and yes it will save you some money, but they can be a pain to locate and work on in some newer cars.

Cooling radiator may need cleaning and the system may need topping up or new fluid entirely. Any work needs to be done by proper air technitians as it contains dangerous stuff.

Ac blows cold air for about 15 minutes then starts blowing warm air then starts blowing cold air again freon is full

Freon is not full. If it goes back and fourth it is pumping then reaching a low pressure on the low side below 35 psi. Pressure while car is off should be pegged. Check at idle should be around 50 psi and 35 psi at 2000 rpms.

Good luck. If problem persists evac system replace dryer and recharge.

Heater does not blow hot only cold air. Every so often the heater blows hot . When driving on freeway the heater works sometimes but turns cold when at red light.

Check the radiator level, if it low the hot coolant will not reach the heater. Second may be the water pump, as it wares the clearance increases and the efficiency goes way down and it cannot pump the coolant unless the engine revs are up.....

Dipstick should be on left side of engine back near firewall. If it sounds like its slipping and does not move till 3K rpms, it is slipping. Low fluid, internal wear or converter draining back into unit when sitting for some time can cause this. If fluid smells burned, change it. If there is a ton of fine metal or non metallic debris in pan, you likely need a rebuild.(there is always some in pan but should not be excessive) Sometimes using a good trans additive/conditioner can extend the service life somewhat but no chemical can replace a worn component.
