Question about Ford Futura

1 Answer

'99 Ford AU Falcon Aircon cuts out above 80km/hr

Occasionally, above 80km/hr-the cool air becomes ambient and reducing speed sometimes cures the problem-other times, the air remains uncooled until the engine is switched off and the car is started, after aperiod of time. The problem then may repeat (above 80km/hr) or may not. I have had the strainer and the back-pressure valve changed-to no avail. Changing the compressor would be an expensive exercise-if this did not cure the problem.

    gas pressures are OK-it is a variable stroke compressor-but a failure from that (whilst running) would only result in a reduced cooling output (or none-which would be permanent thereafter-if it was a mechanical failure).

They are tempremental about the gas pressures you first need to check that the fans are working efficiently, if not the gas can freeze in the front core. also get your gas checked by a specialist

When you a/c works does it cut off on reaching the temp. If so decrease the rheostat and check. The compresor is developing a high back pressure and getting caught . This reduces the pressure and flow to reduce the cooling. You will need to confiirm if the compressor is having a bad valve, a filter, fault in the gas or gas pressure, block in the condenser. Try to reduce your fan speed and reduce the thermostat and check if the a/c cuts off. If the cooling gets better ,use it till your next overhaul, the check the entire a/ system for blocks in cooling pipe/condenser and refill correct gas. Hope the fan is working well when the a/c is switched on with no blocks in the condenser fins. Use a good spray to clean the fins too. Hope you try this out and hope it helps. Good day

Unwanted fumes gas in ford falcon futura


is the car on recirculate or fresh air? air from your aircon comes through the bottom of your front windscreen, make sure its clear and free of leaves or anything that can cause blockage to stop it from become damp inside the aircon ducts. if it is definately petrol fumes you may have an exhaust leaking from your engine bay, releasing the fumes into your cabin, that is the most common reason for petrol fumes in your aircon.
