While there is nothing for me to answer. And while you wait on gstacy to return, I'll give you the Country Boy explanation on how A/C sorta works'
We'll use your house A/C as the model
One would think that the Fan in your house is blowing over some ice cold radiator thingee to make the house cold. The thingee inside is called an evaporator! Car too. The system is not makin' nothin' cold. It's absorbing the heat out of the air, from inside the house.
Its in a "gas state", inside the pipes, at the evaporator. This is the "absorber"!
This "Heat Bearing" gas now travels thru the pipes to outside. The radiator thingee outside is called a Condenser. In your car too!
The box outside has a fan in it. It cools the condenser coil, the gas has turned back into a liquid as its cooled in the condenser-hence its name! The cooled liquid now returns back into the house.
Just before the EVAPORATOR, it gets sprayed back into a gas
The cycle begins again!
Now lets go back outside to the condenser--Put your hand in the air the fan is blowing.
Know what that is?
That's the heat that was in your house. It's now being transferred outside!
Car is EXACTLY the same thing, just a bit more, technical terms, I've skipped over
If your condenser don't cool down, with air flow, Fan-generated or Traveling speed generated AIR. The liquid is not cooled enough!
Cannot turn back into gas when it should!
So here's what you need to check, as far as I can see, insure your system is properly charged. Wait. Wait. How can you properly charge it, if the mechanicals are not working right?
Make sure the condenser fins are clean, I use Purple Power, in a pump up sprayerWatch Your PAINT. Rinse everything well. Or use another recommend product, not so harsh!
Make sure your fans operate when they should!
Properly charge your system. WITH REAL GAUGES. The Auto parts store stuff is good. ONLY IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. This ain't EZ, like filling up your radiator! Would you let your sister, remove your appendix?
All yours gstacy!
