Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
My 1996 dodge ram 1500 2 wheel drive pickup truck with a 5.9 v8 engine, is not blowing cold air out of the air conditioner. I have tried to put freon in it but it will not take it in. I am wondering what else there could be wrong with it. The system works it just will not blow cold air, what could i be doing wrong. Thanks Don
To get the refrigerant in you have to have a technician purge the system first. Hope that helps.

Sorry there is no "reset" on a compressor, do u know what an ac compressor looks like? if not here is a picture. The chances are the system needs to have refrigerant added. if the compressor is running the front part of the compressor will be turning, not just the grooved pulley but the whole front.

They make a machine to do this, but it is too expensive to buy for just one use. The best thing to do it to take off the power steering lines where the connect to the steering rack. Then start the truck and it will pump out the fluid in the reservoir. Feel free to keep adding fresh fluid to it while its running just to ensure all is out. Then, to get the fluid out of the steering box, connect the lines back up, fill the reservoir, and with the vehicle running, crank the steering wheel back and forth from lock to lock. This will take the fluid from the rack and eventually bring it back to the reservoir. You must then again disconnect the lines and flush it out of the reservoir. You may want to repeat this several times, it may take a long time, but will be cheaper than replacing the steering rack, box, pump, and lines. Good luck, and have fun. :-P
