Then, can low coolant affect AC?

In a properly operation system the engine coolant temperature should not affect the cooling of the air conditioner. But technically it is not the high coolant temperature causing the A/C problem. It is the lack of airflow across the condenser and radiator causing one problem in two systems.

Furthermore, why is my air conditioner not cold? The most common cause of window air conditioners not blowing cold air is a lack of adequate air flow. If the air filter is dirty or clogged, there may be little or no air flow over the evaporator coils, which may cause them to become too cold and frost or ice can form on them, restricting the air flow even more.

why is my AC in my car blowing hot air?

Hot air coming from your car AC vents can mean that you have low levels of refrigerant. It can also be due to a problem in the condenser, the compressor, the cooling fan, or the electrical system of your car.
