How do I adjust the idler pulley on the compressor? Is it hard to replace a control valve? How do I clean the clutch relay contacts and where are they located?

Compressor pulley and idler pulleys are two different things. Do you have a bad compressor pulley? If so, you can change the clutch assembly or the pulley, but special tools are needed to remove the clutch driver. Pulley is held in place with a snap ring. Control valves can be replaced, but you're better off explaining the problem first, maybe we can help..
PS: The system must be empty to remove the control valve.. If it's not cooling for some reason, post your high and low side pressures first..Hope this helps.

I'm having an issue with a car I recently purchased. When I turn on the A/C it will blow hot until I rev the engine to 2,500 rpm. It doesn't matter how long it sits there. It will not blow cold until 2,500. The A/C is ice cold while driving after I rev the engine. Now, is if I punch it to the floor the A/C blows not as cold. I have to turn the A/C off, turn it back on, and rev the engine again. The A/C will stay cold under normal driving conditions until I punch the gas hard. Ive had it checked by a professional and they can't figure out the problem. The freon is fully charged. Any idea whats going on?
