A/C Nightmare

gary3x7 on Mon May 28, 2012 1:40 PM User is offline

Year: 2007
Make: Dodge
Model: Ram 1500
Engine Size: v6
Refrigerant Type: 134a
Ambient Temp: 83 F
Country of Origin: United States

Took truck to repair shop on April 9, 2012 and compressor was dead replaced compressor a/c worked fine for a week an then stopped. Evaporator was leaking which I knew already. Replaced evaporator, condenser, blower motor and resistor, accumulator, actuators, liquid line, drier. At 83 F I get 64F out of vents, but in morning when 70f I get 43F. They have done everything known to man to fix the problem and I still only get 64f. I have paid $2000.00 for repairs and am not satisfied with the results. In all fairness the repair shop keeps taking the truck back and working on it but they haven't fixed the problem. I have not said anything about a refund but think it may be time to take the truck to someone else. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you

Do you know any pressure readings? Excessive high side along with poor performance in hot weather could be overcharged with refrigerant or oil, air contaminated refrigerant (neglecting to evacuate before charging) or condenser issues. Also you could try clamping off the heater hoses to make absolutely sure the heater and A/C are not fighting each other.
