Why does my car smoke when I turn the AC on?
Fog or smoke coming out the air vents is caused by cold dry air coming in contact with warmer, more moist air near the air conditioner. If the air temperature near the unit is below the dew point, this causes water vapor to form in the air and condense into water droplets, thus causing the fog or smoke.
What happens when AC compressor is overcharged?
If the AC system is overcharged, the change from liquid to gas cannot happen, so the compressor starts producing liquid coolant instead of gas. It now has to work extremely hard to pump the excess coolant through the lines. The result is a noisy or broken compressor.
Will an overcharged AC freeze up?
If the system is overcharged, part of the refrigerant cannot be evaporated, and the compressor will work with the refrigerant in liquid phase. It means that if the system is undercharged with refrigerant, the suction and discharge pressures are below the levels required for efficient operation.
What happens if I put too much refrigerant in my car?
The extra refrigerant puts more wear on the compressor, and this extra work can cause it to overheat which kicks it off. Also, the extra pressure from the Freon can cause the compressor to start pooling oil inside of it. This will completely burn out the compressor and cause it to need to be replaced.
How does Honda Odyssey know how much Freon to put in?
They’ll recover the refrigerant, vacuum it down, and then put back in the proper amount. The vacuum process can show if there are any leaks and they can also add a dye that will allow them to find any leaks. Very interesting. Let me explain whole story. It happened about 3 months ago.
What to do if your Honda Odyssey AC is not working?
You might want to try this first if you are having AC problems before you take it to the shop. Swap out both relays and see if it works for you. If it does work, take the bad one and bring it to any parts store to get a new one. If this video helped you and feel like donating anything I really appreciate it!

Why does my Honda Odyssey clutch not work?
This is a 2005 Honda Odyssey with an A/C system problem. The A/C clutch does not engage, even though the system is full of refrigerant. In this video I will walk you through testing system pressures, and how to test the inputs and outputs of any A/C system.
What’s the best way to fill a Honda Odyssey?
Probably the best way is to bring the car to the dealer, fix the leak if it exists, and fill fresh freon from scratch. That is a common problem on these Hondas. The relay sticks, causing the AC compressor to be on all the time, even when the engine is off.
What kind of AC does Honda Odyssey have?
I have a 2005 Odyssey EX-L with 250,000 miles. About a year ago, the AC clutch died so my brother-in-law, who owns a trucking business, had his mechanic put in a new Denso compressor. It worked afterwards, but never blew as cold as with the original.
Why is the AC in my Honda Odyssey leaking?

What should static pressure be on Honda Odyssey?
Same with all the AC lines in the engine bay. The sniffer didn’t register anything, either. Nothing around the new compressor, either the lines or clutch. Today, two days after adding the 12-oz of refrigerant, the static pressure is about 80. So it’s holding pressure in the short-term.
Why does my Honda Odyssey clutch not engage?
The system is charge correctly but the compressor wont engage. I turn the ac button on and off while the vehicle is running and it still won’t engage. I am getting power to it, the pulley spins but the clutch won’t engage. PLEASE CAN’T ANY ONE HELP ME TO RESOLVE THIS ASAP.
