Question about 1996 Dodge Dakota
My 96 Dakota reg cab 3.9 is having AC problems. I can get the AC on, air blows out at full force but does not get cold; also heater does not work, again air comes out but same temp as outside. Local mechanic wanted to replace the compressor; prblem is, he says that about everything and in past that has NOT solved problems on other vehicles (I think he does not know) Would compressor cause this problem? What else could be checked as well? Thanks
It could cause the A/C problem but not the heater problem. You can determine if the compressor is bad with a set of A/C manifold gauges. If you don't have access to these, you can do a quick check on the compressor. Do this by feeling the two lines going to it when it is running, One line should be hot to the touch and the other should be cold. Both problems could be caused for a temp actuator or temp door problem.
