Question about 1998 Jeep Wrangler
The a/c on my 1998 jeep wrangler works only when the car is cool. Once you start driving it only cools for around 2 - 15 minutes depending on how hot the day is. Then it starts to smell like vinegar and the air starts to come out really hot. Just like if it had No freon. So basically it is not cooling when I need it. If the day is really hot the a/c system doesn't cool at all. When you open the hood you can see that when there is No cold air coming out the clutch is not cycling. It only cycles when the cold air is working. How can I fix this problem. I had a similar problem before and they changed the condenser about 4 to 5 years ago.
What this means is that either you have a low charge or your expansion valve is failing to operate properly. the expansion valve regulates the ther system which in turn allows the clutch to kick in . 4-5 years is generally the time a system needs a recharge anyway because the refrigerant starts to break down and the system no longer meets the minumum pressures. plus your dryer element most likely needs replacing as well thats where you get the smell from the crystal pellets inside the dryer are no longer any good
