Not cooling

Acrux on Mon September 22, 2008 4:20 PM User is offline

Year: 1991
Make: Ford
Model: Thunderbird
Engine Size: 302
Refrigerant Type: R134a
Ambient Temp: 80
Pressure Low: 35
Pressure High: 35
Country of Origin: United States

A/C not cooling the low side is 35 when car is on and off and the Hight side is around 35 when car is on and off.
Just had the compressor and accumulator replaced by a shop. Is it a bad compressor ??

Sounds like your compressor is bad or not turning on.

There must be a leak. Your refrigerant is practically all gone.

I think mk378 is right.
When a system gets low on refrigerant even a good compresser won't turn on.

If you can't see the outer hub of the compressor engage when the AC is turned on, then try jumping the cycling switch (two wire low side switch on or near the accumulator) to confirm that the compressor comes on. Don't run it any longer than being sure the compressor engages, then if you are sure the pressures listed are correct, you need to find and fix the leak.. Hope this helps..
