just finished diagnosing a problem and wanted to get advise on my pressures, additional info 87% RH, evap temp 60F. From what I have learned this seems slightly high. Is that a big deal or take away efficiency.
Thanks to the forum. I have not fixed it yet, but I have been chasing erratic behavior of my AC all summer. I finally got down to the clutch gap today. Tapped the front and it went to working. Typical symptoms, sometimes run for 5min, sometimes 30, sometimes reving engine worked, finally it quit completely.
From what I understand, I can pull the pulley and remove shims. no special tool needed.
Just posting your thoughts? and your question is? yes you are on right track....
The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......
posted mostly for comment. trying to learn. my question was around refrigerant pressures. Are they higher than ideal? if so is it a big deal?
