2006 Acura TSX with 142k and some change. AC compressor kicks on but only blows cold air when around 1500rpm or higher. When it is blowing cold air only the passenger said blows cold. Heater works fine and the pressure in the system seems ok as well. still no fix to this issue. I think it might be the compressor considering it only blows cold air when accelerating.
it could be your blend door or a completely broken vacuum line since they mix hot air with cold usually by a vacuum actuator, i have an 06 6spd, ill look up how the vents and blend doors in the duct work are actuated for you

I am having the same issue again!!!

June 2014 - replaced a/c compressor $1400

March 2016 - replaced a/c compressor $940 (idk why it's much cheaper than the first time)

September 2017 - a/c condenser, compressor, expansino(?) valve, valve core, flushed the evaporator, replaced evaporate temp sensor, replaced all ring gaskets, all struts, front brakes [struts & brakes 1040] TOTAL $2300

July 2020 - While driving to work hot air came out. I smelled something burning and my car was making an unusual noise. Took it to a mechanic to make sure it was safe to drive back home at a nearby shop. The mechanic said it was the a/c compressor, but he would have to do more diagnostic testing to see how much more damage there is.

My question is is this worth getting fixed or should I look into buying a new car? It's a 2006 with the mileage @ 275,500+. The engine works great and no major problems other than this recurring issue. I had to change my clutch at 103K miles, new tires, brake pads, and replace ball joint and control arm.

I love this car! I was hoping to get at least another 2-5 years of it......

Thanks!
