confused A/C Question

Saturday night I was driving my '88 Escort GL with the a/c on, it was blowing ice cold air, I stopped to fill the gas tank and when I got back in the a/c was blowing warm air. I let it sit overnight and Sunday morning I turned the a/c on and it was still warm air, Sunday afternoon I got in it and turned the a/c on and the cool air was back. Anyone have any idea what's going on or things to check?

Re: A/C Question

See if the clutch kicks in when you turn the air on and see if it looks like a hose or some other part lost freon.

I opened the hood Saturday night after I got back home from filling the gas tank and the compressor was running, but the low side freon line was hot instead of cold like it should have been. What really confuses me is that for 16+ hours it wouldn't blow anything but warm air then when I turned the a/c on, on Sunday afternoon I had a/c again.

Re: A/C Question

All you can do then, is, wait to see if it happens again and see if the compressor comes on when it doesn't work.
