Air Conditioning problem
2005 Ford Freestyle 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 80000 miles
bout a week ago noticed that A/C wasn't cooling to well.
put the gauges on it an had a high low side pressure 60 and a low high side pressure (190) at idle on an 87 deg. Day. Today we reclaimed the sys. To replace the expansion valve and only reclaimed 1lb.5 oz. Freon... Now I know that low freon would create a low low side pressure but felt that I needed to recharge fully to test system. Not much changed so we reclaimed again and replaced the expansion valve. After evacuating and recharging the system, again not much change. Taped the manifold to the windshield and went on a drive. 65 MPH, 1500 RPM, 100 deg. Outside, 60 psi low side, 190 high side, 60 deg center outlet air temp. So i'm sure the compressor is bad but I read something from another poster on another site about a regulator on top of the compressor that he replaced and fixed his problems. $35.00 part. What's your take on this... Thanks... &Quot; Answers $2.00, Correct Answers $5.00, Dumb looks are still free.&Quot; lol
