A/C PROBLEM 3.0L

1996 Ford Aerostar • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 266,000 miles

Just had the a/c worked on new parts and re-built compressor everything was working well and blowing cold. I had an idler pully go bad and my belt busted, I replaced the pulley and belt and now my a/c is not blowing cold. I checked fuses and they are good. What else should I check or what could be the problem? Thanks.

The low pressure switch could either be turning off the system for low freon or could be bad. When the belt snapped, did it involve and wiring that you could see?

No wiring that I could see. The idler pulley had a big chunck out of it and the sharp edge cut the belt. Now prior to that the a/c would stop blowing cold for a few seconds and then start blowing cold again. Now that I replaced the pully and belt it is not blowing cols at all.

You have a separate issue with the ac. Have it checked with a dye for leaks.
