I have a 97 S-10 with a 2.2 i recently changed the compressor, accumulator
and orifice, because the compressor was leaking. I vacuumed the system, and held the vacuum for an hour with no leaks, so i charged the system with 30 ounces of refrigerant.. It blew ice cold, the system was sweating, the hoses and accumulator were cold and sweating..
I drove the truck about 5 miles and it started to blow cool, not cold air.. Today i went out to check what was wrong, it was full of refrigerant, the hoses/accumulator are icy cold and sweating like a pig.. but i still just have cool air, the switch on the dash seems to be working as it gets hot when turned to the red zone, so i assume it is working correctly, does anyone have an idea of what could be wrong?
I can't take readings at the moment because my low side fitting broke and I'm waiting for a replacement in the mail, all i can think of is a put the orifice in backwards, or didn't push it in enough, but it was getting very cold so I'm not really sure..
clamp off the heater hoses. Is the airflow full strength out of the vents and not the defroster ducts?
Dito. Also, is there a cabin air filter?, change it.
I bought a can of 134a at w**-mart that had a stop leak, oil, and dye in it. It also had a hose and a gauge, so now I'm an AC pro!
