I have a 2007 edge sel awd.....during very hot temperatures, my a/c blows hot air when idling and starts to run hot. But all the fluids are good. It cools when the car is moving..... Any idea what could be wrong?

Possibly the engine cooling fan is not working.  I believe it is electric so it could be a sensor, switch or the fan motor itself.  When the car is moving, the moving air would provide the cooling that the fan isn't.

I agree, had the exact same thing last summer. Dealer replaced the entire fan unit under extended warranty.

If you do it yourself or go to a local repair shop, go Motorcraft on this, do NOT use aftermarket. (Lot of horror stories and regret with aftermarket fans).

Check the cooling fans with the A/C running, you will see they are not cycling on.

"draining water from ac line"?

Are you saying that you opened the sealed system and drained it, or that you drained water from the hvac housing?

If the first, you released all of the refigerent and will need to get the system recharged.

If the second, there no corrolation between unclogging the condenser housing drain and the failure of the AC system (unless you somehow punctured the refigerent lines somehow). Have you checked the fuses?

What exactly did you do?

The fan may have been ruined by the water if you had to clean the drain to get the water out of the housing.  The fan would still function even if you had no Freon in the system.  The fan is an easy replacement and not expensive.
