It sounds to me like you probably have a so-called "vacuum" leak. The "hiss" you mentioned is a tell-tale sign, and your air conditioning mode controls (both hot/cold, duct selection, etc.) are controlled by vacuum lines under the hood. At least, everything I just said it true of my Chevy Blazer, so I assume your Honda could have similar engineering. ...

They are not even close in comparison. Your refrigerator is a small sealed unit that averages 488 BTU, the compressor speed is controlled to operate efficiently as possible, and is designed to operate in a controlled environment. According to electricity expert Michael Bluejay, the average refrigerator uses 488 BTUs per hour in normal use. Read more ...

It has to do with the type of compressor which is used. The system in a refrigerator/freezer has a completely closed unit, where the compressor is housed inside of the gas. Because of this, all the lines associated with it can be soldered shut with hard lines, etc. Because of this, a house refer/freezer will not cool as quickly, either. They work very well, ...

With the AirCon off the pulley and clutch arrangement are simply rotated by the serpentine belt, and the pumping element remains stationary. When you turn the AirCon on, the clutch is engaged and both elements turn together to pressurise the system. The ...

But at that way you should hear a pretty hard beat or squeak if A/C turns on, because the magnetic clutch of A/C is overloaded. The second reason could the short circuit, so I would check some cable. I think this is more an electrically problem.

Do you have an exterior temperature sensor that gives a reading inside the car? I have a SAAB 93 that had a faulty exterior temperature sensor that the HVAC computer system used to properly run. During the warm summer months the sensor was telling my car that is was below freezing outside and it wouldn't let the AC system come, but every now and then the ...

You need to have a scan on your AirCon system to check it out for any control faults and operation. A check on the blend door must be done as they do fail and continue to let in warm/hot air during AirCon operation. A system recharge may/will be necessary to ensure that it is fully charged. During the recharge pressures should be noted, and ensure that the ...

While a manual transmission in the Subarus seem to run high at highway speeds (according to this website, 3200 @ 70mph is normal ... this to me who runs a vehicle which maintains ~1800-2000rpm at 70mph seems high, but nothing like what you are experiencing), running over 3500rpm at 50mph seems quite a bit excessive. This could be the cause of your heating ...
