1991 Camry A/C Blows Cold Humid Air

The A/C In my '91 Camry blows ice cold, but it's extremely humid no matter the temperature setting.

Whenever I turn on my A/C in my '91 Camry, it does get ice cold, but it's very humid and condenses on the windows. It also gets humid whenever the heater is on as well.

I don't think it would be a clogged evaporator drain because the floor carpet isn't wet at all. I have no idea what is causing this to occur.

If it helps figure out the problem, the A/C compressor is grinding and clattering.

Thank you very much!

Love that old Camry. I had a 2008 AllTrac Camry that was wonderful (though very under-powered). My mom had a 1991 V6 Camry that was fantastic...both were in that same shade of maroon.

It might relate to that flattering but could be a clogged evaporator drain as it might only condense in the windows, or it could be leaky refrepigerant fluid as it might evaporate quickly like petrol but as its constantly being blown forward the vapours might go upwards and cling onto the windows

1991 Camry, my dream car, if standard transmission. Sigh.

It's draining water fine. Turns out it was a heater core leak. It's blowing vaporized antifreeze no matter what temperature or setting. It's deep within the dashboard and in addition with the compressor giving it a total price of $1300, I'm just going to junk the car and look for another car. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Simple check that you may have already done, park on a level surface, and run the A/C, check for condensate leaking from the bottom of your car, after a few minutes on a hot day you should have a small puddle. If not, water is being retained somewhere. Car is old, you might have a water leak inside the car and not even know it, increasing the humidity. Check under the floorpan carpets for moisture. Good luck.

if you lose coolant, then heater core is leaking and doing that, it's inside the dash too. If not, try to put it on recirc with inside air only to lower humidity
