Air Conditioning problem
1999 Jeep Cherokee 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
i have a 1999 jeep Cherokee and the AC will blow ice cold for a while then blow warm outside temp air. After a while the AC will blow cold again.
took a it to a shop and here is what they said
"Pressure test a/c system and found no leaks at this time. System is full of r-134a. The a/c compressor clutch is going out on the compressor. Recommend a/c compressor assembly, dryer, liquid line, flush system and fill with R134a"
of course this is not going to be cheap so I took it to a 2nd shop for a 2nd opinion
The 2nd shop stated that he clutch was fine. In fact they stated all the hardware was fine. While trying to figure out what was wrong they evacuate all the refrigerant and added fresh r134a. The tech stated that the older refrigerant was old and had a lot of air mixed in and maybe a little moisture. He also stated that this was causing the system to act like a low charge even though the gauges read the correct pressure. This did sound a little strange and I was given two options. They could put back the old refrigerant or leave the new in and I would have to pay for the evacuate and recharge.
Does this sound like it is possible?
have the same problem?
