Question about 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser

1 Answer


I have a 2003 PT Cruiser. Just recently the A.C. stop blowing cold. I checked the hi-lo pressure switch which controls the compressor. The compressor comes on like it suppose to. I bought a can of R-134a refridgerant with the gauge. I got a normal reading from the guage. The guage read that the system didnt need refridgerant. The A.C. lines have the correct amount of pressure. I tested vehicle while it was running with the A.C. running.
Can you help me?

My AC went out suddenly and it turns out I got a major leak in one of the tubes in the AC system and thus warm air. When I bought the first can of refrigerant it didn't take much to get the pressure back where it should be. After some good advise I learned that my compressor was kicking on and off (you'll hear it cycle on and of every few seconds or so) and not STAYING on. Turns out because the system was drained of coolant I had to fill the tank a little at a time and actually go over the recommended pressure to force the air out of the line and get enough coolant in the system to kick the compressor on.
Turns out it was all for not...given the hole in my system it just leaked right out. I live in GA and still don't have it fixed; I was quoted $800 to fix it and figured I could live with it.

Check your coolant level first and then check your radiator pressure cap. If not one of these it is likely a sensor/valve in the system controller and you will likely need to go to a reapir shop for help.

not happy here i bought a machine for recharging A/C and now they have started selling the gas in a can in the supermarkets ,2400€ for a machine and you can buy a can for about 25€ .could have a blocked restrictor valve ,venturi valve by whatever name you call it but its in the actual pipe on american cars and on the new ones here now as well,only need a bit of dirt to move in the system and it will block this valve evan if someone has put a leak sealer in this could cause the valve to clag up and not allow the gas through.strip and clean whole system blowing it out with an airline.This gas has to be recovered with a machine and released into the atmosphere.
