Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan
I parked the car with working ac about 9 months ago. I started it up last week and the ac doesn't work any more. I put a set of gauges on it and the low side measured about 110 and the high side about 130. I put a little freon in and the low side is about 120 and the high is about 140. Any idea what is wrong? The compressor clutch does turn on.
It could be a loose compression compressor.
does the compressor sounds a little bit noisy? and increases as you rev the engine?
with the pressures that you gave, it seems that the compressor can not **** the gas from the lowside to transfer it to the high side. that is what we called loose compression.
i'm not sure if an oil charge could change the situation. it could be a mechanical problem already that can not be solve by adding oil to the system.
but i wonder why it would do that. it was just not used for 9 months.
good luck on the compressor, hope you can solve it by adding oil. if not, you have to replace the compressor.
tnx 4 using fixya,
