Trying to help a friend with his AC problem - no cool air at all. Clutch is engaging, put gauges on and had Low side pressure = 40 and high side = 225. Revved the car to approx 1500 rpm and low side drops to 10-15 and high side increases to 350+. What is going on? After returning the car to idle the high side stays at 350 and even climbs some...
Are the fans working correctly? How much refrigerant is in the system?
I have no idea about how much refrigerant...and, the electric fan did not come on at all.
The condenser fan is wired to be on any time the compressor is on, so there is the problem. Without the fan, condenser overheats and the pressure rises out of control.
Check the condenser ground wire, fan motor and relay. It's powered through the same fuse as the compressor so the fuse must be good.
