ford windstar a/c problem

de2deas1 on Sun June 13, 2010 8:35 PM User is offline

Year: 2001
Make: ford
Model: windstar
Engine Size: 3.8
Refrigerant Type: r134
Pressure Low: 75
Country of Origin: United States

01 windstar stop blowing cold air from the front and rear a/c . Had it checked at firestone and was told that I need a new system, They said that the compressor was looping internal and the low side was high and the high side was fine. They needed to replace the drier with the compressor. Does any of this sound right? or is firestone is trying to take me for a ride?

More information will be needed to be able to help. We would like to see both gauge readings (Low side and Hi-side) and outside temps with engine running and doors open at high idle about 15-1800rpms. Crimp off hot water lines to the heater core(s) and repost results.

ok today the temp outside was 82 and I checked the a/c . Both low and high read 120 with a/c on max, both fans on high with doors open. All I got was hot air, and the low side line got hot. But I did noticed that whenever I did a hard acceleration , I felt cool air coming from the front a/c but not the rear.

120 and 120, either the compressor wasn't engaged, or the valves on the manifold were open, or the compressor is might want to see if the outer clutch driver is being pulled in when the ac is turned on, and go from there....

The compressor was engaged and the outer clutch was engaged also when I got that reading. What's so weird is that as long as I'm driving I get cold air, only when stopped, the hot air comes in.
