Air Conditioning problem
1986 Ford Crown Victoria V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles
When accelerating, load put on engine, the a/c stops working. Vent door closes, a/c shuts off, heat starts coming thru (no blower running). Let up on gas, a/c comes back on, until gas depressed again. If using Cruise Control, when going up even the slightess grade the a/c shuts down, then comes back on when car levels - if Cruise maintains speed on level ground (without a load) the air works fine. I've check every vacuum line I can see/find, everything looks good. Tromp down on gas for less than 5 seconds and let up on pedal, a/c stays on. Take off normally and a/c shuts off at 5 or 6 seconds, then the air comes back on when desired speed is obtained. Ford dealer said I needed a RAPID ACCELERATION DELAY SWITCH or RELAY? Or is this a "vacuum" failure?
have the same problem?
