Air Conditioning problem
2008 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 43500 miles
I have a 2008 Toyota Camry, with the A/C turned on it blows hot air. This car was was a salvage repair vehicle so it is not under warranty. The compressor will not turn on when the car is switched to A/C. I can manually apply voltage to the compressor and it will engage. The pressures on the sytem are off when the A/C is not on car off the low side pressure will read about 85 to 90 psi on the gauges this seems to be to high compared to other A/C sytems the high side pressure reads about the same 90 to 100 psi. When I jumper the compressor the low side pressure will drop to about 30psi and the high side will drop about 3 to 4 psi. I am not getting any freon trough the site glass on the gauges. A toyota master tech said that the compressor was the problem. I replaced the compressor and still have the same problem. I then replaced the expansion valve due to other A/C dianostic charts but that did not fix the problem either. The only other component that has been replaced was the condensor as part of the salvage repair. Any suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated.
