Aftermarket Jeep AC Fixed

pwilkinson on Sat September 10, 2011 7:35 AM User is offline

Year: 97
Make: Jeep
Model: Wrangler
Engine Size: 2.5L
Refrigerant Type: R134A
Ambient Temp: 84
Pressure Low: 27
Pressure High: 190
Country of Origin: United States

I think I have it fixed, but our temps have fallen from the high 90's to the mid 80's so its hard to tell if it's cooling better. I fixed my condenser mounting issues that the previous owner had jacked up. I replaced expansion valve, drier, and a couple of hoses. I also did away with my mechanical clutch fan and went all electric. At Idle my vent temps are about 50 degrees. Took it for a test drive and the vent temps dropped to 40 degrees within a 1/4 mile. Also, When I was vacuuming my system I didn't realize my high side port didn't engage the fitting completely. My low pressure gauge did show 29 in of hg. It passed the leak test and I continued to evacuate the system for an hour. Even though the high side port wasn't engage I should have gotten all of the atmosphere and moisture out? Right? One thing I'm concerned about is temp isn't getting cold enough for compressor to cycle off at idle.
