A/C Problems
« on: July 04, 2014, 01:34:34 PM »
SO, i have a 2000 Ford Explorer and the air conditioner doesn't work. It blows air but doesn't cool it.. any help is appreciated.
If you catch me in a bar where the wild things are
With my pastor and an entourage who loves God
Please don't think that it's odd, we kick it 'round broken hearts
Fishing for men, surrounded by sin but ain't taking part
I talk about Jesus, all the Christians love me
I walk like Jesus now they wanna judge me, ain't it funny?

My first instinct would be to refill the freon. I think they sell a little kit and refill bottles at the auto stores. I've been told it isn't that hard to do yourself but I haven't personally done it or you could always take it so a repair shop and have them do it. Another possibility could be the compressor but that is a lot more expensive to replace.

I've tried A/C pro, cooled a little but didn't work over all.

Leak in your ac line? When you refilled it did the solution have stop leak in it?
When you refilled it was it child for any amount of time?
Any strange noise when you turn the ac on?

If you have used A/C Pro and it cooled a little and now it doesn't have that same cooling property I would assume you have a leak somewhere. Only thing I would suggest is look at all of your A/C lines inside the engine compartment and look for some kind of signs of a leak. A/C systems have oil in them to lubricate the compressor and the oil tends to leak out of the liquid side of the lines , which leaves a noticeable wet look.
