Hello Sir:

not sure that I have a solution yet but I do have a few follow-up questions.

1. Is the airflow diminished from what would normally be expected? If so, open the Glove Box and remove the rubber stops on either side. Lower the Glove box so that access to the air inlet filter is gained. Remove the plastic securing clip and remove the air filter. Clean or replace as necessary. Also, run the fan with the filter removed. Does the airflow get better? Has the sucking sound disappeared?
2. Start and run the engine at idle; select the air condition fan on "low." engage the AC switch and note engine idle rpm: it should first drop momentarily and then increase. If the RPM does not drop, suspect the level of Freon in the system as below operational pressure limits. Most air condition systems shut down when the refrigerant pressure drops too low.

happy to answer any further questions and apologies for the delay.

Ac fan works but does not get cold

Hi there,
Check the air con drive belt is still OK.
Check to see if there is a slight change in the engine sound when the air con is switched on and off while idling - I'd get someone to do the switching while I listened under the hood.
If there's no change in sound (assuming whatever had to be switched on to enable air con to go, eg fan was operating) I'd check the fuse(s) for the air con.

If the fuse is ok, and you've already charged up the freon (not quite sure what you were saying there), I'd be taking it to an air con specialist.

Air con problems on my peueot 406

if there is no air movement check the fuses as the one for the fan might need replacement, if there is air movement but it is not cold then you may have lost gas from your aircom system which will need to be replaced by a specialist.

i hope this was useful

When i came home from work after shutting off my ford ranger i heard some noise that sound like moisture going through pipes. I havent really noticed the sound before but i opened the hood and noticed that...

Most likely it is the air condition pipe that has the condensate (moisture) on the pipe. When the engine has stopped and if the air con has been running you may hear the air con gas/fluid in the pipe.

Depending on how low the air intake is to the ground it may have sucked up water, possibly enough to stall the engine. A compression test would be the first place to start. All the cylinders should be above 100 psi.

Air con not working

try a can of 134A a/c oil in it because it sounds like the a/c clutch in the compresser is low on oil

My blower only works on setting 123 + air con not that cold

You have a resistor array assembly going out. What you described is typical of the first resistor going out and over loading the second, which goes out and overloads the third. Replace the HVAC resistor array. Don't buy a used one. Spend the extra money on the new OEM dealer item. Good luck to you.

Try to disconnect the Air Flow Meter. It is the first plug just before the air filter/air intake box. If this improves your situation you will need to source a new or aftermarket Air Flow Meter.
