    Default Honda Civic 8th Gen overheating on AC on, blowing hot air if idle

    I am facing some problems after AC Gas refill

    One day out of the blue, my all AC gas leaked within a night. I went to Honda Point, he tried to check leakage but he never found any and refilled the gas and according to him compressor was not running after refilling Gas, so he said he did something and it starts working, I found i fishy but I was in hurry so I just came back.

    Next day all gas again gone, I went to Pakistan AC at PICCO Road Lahore. He found leakage under dashboard in a pipe. After fixing it he refilled the gas. But after some days I start facing a strange issue.

    initially, when car is in sunlight for 3 to 4 hours, and outside temperature is 40 degrees C, car AC take too long to cool car, but when car starts moving, AC works fine sometimes it was extra cold, but only when car is moving. when stopped, its start blowing hot air.

    after some days, my car was full with 5 to 6 people. A new issue came up, when ever I started my car AC, engine started overheating. It goes back to normal when I turned of AC. My fans are working, both Condensor and Rediator. but I don't know if they are working at High speed or low

    the way i understand it,
    some part of your compressor was damaged because running too long with low refrigerant causing it to put load on the engine due to increased friction hence car is facing overheat tempratures and the technician at Pakistan a/c didn't refill the gas properly, there's moisture or air present in your car's a/c system therefore cooling isn't up to mark when the car isn't moving.

    Can it be Coolant issue? I told him, he asked me to get a Tuneup and flush my radiator and add coolant in it, right now Radiator is filled with simple tap water. But this wasn't making enough sense to me. how AC system is connected to Radiator.

    Always use coolant for radiator refill. Avoid tap water , with passage of time water cause corrosion in radiator.
