Last week I found that my 04 Altis air cond not cold, then I went to workshop and they said it might be the gas leaking in the "cooling coin" but finally they refilled the gas 1st and continue to monitor 1st. Then the air cond running well during I went back to kampung Smiley
But on the way I came back to kl, the air cond suddenly blew the "white smooke" like what we can see in the freezer for around 1 hour then back to normal, but became not so cold already, then I went to the other workshop since the 1st workshop not open yet. They said it could be the compressor and "condensor" problem, both need to be changed and it cost > 1K for the recond compressor and condensor Shocked
Now my car air cond is not so cold but still okay for me, any brother here had the same experience before ? What should I do ?

Bro, this is due to cooling coil problem, got leaking, need to dismantle whole dashboard to solve the problem... I also facing this problem, cost around RM500-600... When u saw white smoke, means not enough gas already... I didnt go repair, just refill the gas every time when white smoke appear, normally it can last for around 6 weeks, workshop said my aircond just small leak... I heard that guy said, this is very common problem for altis... From his advise, when saw white smoke, dont switch on air cond anymore cause it will damage the compressor... Shocked Shocked Shocked

most probably the cooling coil spoilt already. Not sure if old altis have air cond filter but it would be nice to have to prevent dust clogging the coil and spoil it in long term

unfortunately that during the last week cny , my aircon suddently no cold as well .

if leaking of cooling coil, it should remove the dashboard assy and replaced it.... i aso face this problem before, need charge around RM800 as i replaced the original cooling coil.... the smoke come out i think not the means purpose, sometime while during the smoke white aso will come out & not means the air cond condenser or air cond compressor spoil.... air cond condenser seldom spoil, it just will leakage if accident.... air cond compressor spoil it will be some noise will compressor running....

Basically aircond running circle only 4 step, from compressor-condenser-expansion valve-Evaporator..Regarding the mist come out "white smoke" kindly check the filter and  internal air circulation valve whether close properly or not? if outside air mix with internal air it will happen. If compressor got not but still can compress the pressure please check the compressor oil level.. Most of the outside aircond foreman are unqualify and using not original part and always mentioned there parts is good and same with original, for me if want to totally solve the problem, go to Denso SC, there are specialist of course price are higher compare to outside shop unless you can find the qualified foreman.

My Altis also have cooling coil leakage at age of 4 years. I repair at Toyota SC cost RM1200. This is quiet normal in Altis, my friends Altis also have same problem after 3~4years purchased.

Thanks for your all reply, then I think it could be the cooling coil problem, just hope that the compressor has no problem.
I am from PJ, mind to share the aircond specialist contact or location ?

Bro's, I also had the same problem as stated above. So i just went toyota center, a few days ago, they changed the compressor, and also the motherchip located below the dashboard, all together total cost RM3317, included labor cost RM200. The nite after i take my car again, the same problem white smoke came out, then after a while not cold. But this morning when going to work, its damn cold and working. So i have no choice lah but to wait for the problem to come back, or maybe re-fill the gas.  Sad

Today went to workshop at Puchong, the foreman said its because of the cooling coil not service for too long, then it might be too dusty and caused the "freeze" in the cooling coil and suggest to service, but labour cost > $250 Sad and condensor might leaking, total cost should be >1.2k
