    Check if the AC is in inside air mode, or else get your AC and Gas level checked at TASS

    Strange AC problem - TJet

    The AC in my 1.5 year old Linea TJet has suddenly started to show a strange behaviour - the air from the driver's side vent is cooler than the air from the co-passenger side ! Its most evident when the blower is at full speed. As the blower speed is reduced, the temperature difference between the 2 vents decreases.

    Any ideas ?

    I always feel that one of the vents throw up warm air to balance the temperature inside the cabin. This happens in my Punto as well.

    How is the AC cooling though?

    Engine knocking after service at TASS

    Although TASS only hooked the engine to the analyzer and the RPM at idle shows as 886, it has started knocking on low speeds. earlier, I could slot it in 2nd gear on road less roads in Chennai and it kept moving at 20KMPH on auto pilot. Now it just shuts down.
    Also, there is a huge amount of power suddenly available while up shifting and it knocks like a rally car every time I change the gears from 1-2-3-4-5. What could be going on? TASS has done something to the clutch pedal and it has become extremely smooth and the pick up has improved phenomenally.

    In 45 C+ its just about bearable for the driver but not for the co-passenger. In the evenings, its ok.

    Hi rs the logic of chill and less chill is, slower the blower of your AC you will get chill air and faster it will be less chill than the slower one .
    Thats why right and left will be always chiller than the center one in our car

    whats the temparature you keep ?

    It should be same temp in front seats.
    In my car all ac vents have same temp but the right and left side vents have very less air flow than center vents.

    Try cleaning AC/Wire mesh Filter if it doesn't help take your car to ASS and ask them to check operation of air mixing flaps.

    AC in Linea have a mind of its own one day it chills you down and other day leaves you sweating. Yesterday MID was showing 47C and the air from vent was very cool and cabin cooled sufficiently within 5 mins even though car was parked in sun for hours but day before yesterday with MID Showing 46C the cabin wasn't getting cooled even after driving for around half an hour.
