Hi everyone! I am new to the Bonnie forum. I'm so gald I found a forum dedicated to Bonnevilles. They are great cars. I have owned 2. I currently own a 1992 Bonnie SE and need help with an issue I have had since I bought the car 2 years ago. My car is manual climate control (3 *****). The first issue the car has is that the air (hot or cold) will intermettently blow out the defrost and floor vents, no matter what setting you have it on. Usually after you drive the car between 10-20 minutes, the air flow will change to the correct setting (usually I use the center/side cabin vents) and blow out. Then if you turn the car off say to go into the store and come back out, after you crank it back it blows out the defrost vents again. I have lived with this problem, pretty well, but it gets annoying, especially when it'* summer and 100 degrees outside.
Second, the a/c has been doing something quirky. The summer before last, I had the system recharged with 134-a and all was great (except for the air blowing out the defrost vents at times) the air got cold and stayed cold. Then this past summer (200
, the air didn't seem as cold, so I had it recharged. Now new issues have popped up. The a/c will get somewhat cold when you turn the air on for the first time after the car has been parked for a while (i.e. at work) but if you turn the car off for even a few minutes, and then turn the a/c back on, it'* not cold anymore. If you turn it off and try later, it will be cold again. Second, the air is now blowing out colder on the driver'* side than on the passenger side. this is puzzling. Lastly, few times the a/c is actually colder when the car is at idle than when you are driving down the road. I don't know what is causing all these problems. Any help or advicd would be greatly appreciated. I had 2 different mechanics look it, and really couldn't get a solid answer. One said my compressor might be going bad.
