Question I have is I just replaced a/c system(compressor, hoses, valves and refrigerant and coolant) but it takes like half an hour to get cold, especially when it's really hot outside. It seems like the air is colder when I'm driving on the highway and at higher rpm. When its just idling it's not as cold. The air seems to works fine when the temperature is not too hot outside. By the way I checked for any visual leaks and there isn't none, except a little bit on the top portion of the radiator. I keep on checking the coolant and it does not get drained or low. What do you think the problem is?

Hi there,

Is the A/C cooling fan switching on? And have you checked the system pressures to see that they are normal?

Yes, I checked the pressure and the fan did switched on. It does get cold where I actually have to turn it down when it's not too hot outside. But when is too hot outside it takes too long. I don't think it suppose to do that. What do you think is the problem?
