air conditioner was not working for a year or so. Installed R134A fittings, added Pag oil, dye and charged system. Compressor turned on and gauges read 35-40 / 200. But Dye was visible at compressor, so I replaced compressor, rec/dryer and orifice tube. Pumped down system for an hour, held vacuum overnight charged system. Could not get vent temperature below 60 degrees. Pumped down again, flushed system (all but compressor) recharged with same results. Pumped down again, hoping to remove moisture that may have been introduced with flush. No luck, added 2.8lbs of r134 again, olds calls 56oz refrig and 8 oil.
still getting 60 degrees vent temperature, condenser seems to be working okay, high pressure varies with water on condenser, fan turns on and off as expected. Evaporator had constant drip under car, almost a steam, and pressures are 45-55 / 220-260 when running 80-90 degree outside temperature and about 50% humidity. What is next? I am sure I am missing something. I work on all my cars (seven total), but I only know enough to get in trouble! Thanks fro the help.
have the same problem?
