Air Conditioning problem
1999 Ford Escort 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 148000 miles
the ac on my 1999 ford escort was working intermittently then started blowing hot air yesterday. The compressor does not kick on at all. I checked the fuse under the dash and it was fine. I took off the low side service cap to add freon and some green was bubbling out. I attached a recharge kit and depressed the can and the freon just went all over, not into the low side service at all. I bought a new can today with a guage. As soon as I attached it, the gauge pegged to over 100 psi. I tried to let some of the freon out by depressing the pin in the low side service, but the gauge still pegged at 100 psi.
I read about a faulty pin on the CCRM and may try removing the air filter to get to it, but that doesnt explain why the pressure is so high in the system.
have the same problem?
