'98 Altima

PktChg on Sat June 07, 2008 11:09 AM User is offline

Year: 1998
Make: Nissan
Model: Altima

My wife's Altima is having a problem that I cannot quite pinpoint. Please understand: I HAVE VERIFIED THE CAPACITY OF THE 134a AND IT IS CORRECT.....THERE ARE NO BUBBLES IN THE SYSTEM EITHER. (sorry for that but I've tried getting help in several locations and some people cannot read the deails I've given.) Everything runs like it should EXCEPT the air will stop blowing cold. When it does, she can put it in Neutral, rev the engine to at least 3K rpm and it will start blowing cold again. My dad feels its a rev sensor or something like that. What do you guys think???

Thanks.

Thermal protector switch is located in compressor housing. If compressor temperature exceeds 293-311°
F (145-155°C), the switch stops compressor clutch operation. When temperature decreases to 266-284°F
(130-140°C), the switch starts compressor clutch operation.

Check the clutch gap also, could be to wide.. When it stops working, try tapping on the front of the clutch with a screw driver or something, BEING very careful of the belt..., if it grabs, the gap 'may' be to wide..Hope this helps..
