Sound like your low on freon, i would take it to a shop and have them put it on the machine, see what they say, and if you can repair it yourself..

In my 2000 ford expedition my temp gauge keep jumping back and fourth when I run my ac. Y?


Running the AC does increase load on the engine, and thus heating, so if gauge changes gradually, this is because the compressor kicks in for a while, then kicks out. If cooling system is not working properly, small additional load could cause temp change. Other possibility is compressor going bad and causing excess drag.

If change is sudden, loose wire somewhere near compressor could be the issue.

A/c not cooling compressor need oil but dont know what brand and how much to put in


run the engine at fast idle run the ac in maximum cooling and after a few minutes check the sight glass if bubbles present in the sight glass there is insufficient amount of refrigerant you'll need to recharge freon and about 10 ml of refrigerant oil PAG is best.

98 v6 mustang is over heating its not the thermostate or fan


Several things ... best guess, in order:
1. (very likely) Radiator fan is not blowing (turn on car and a/conditioner.
When compressor kicks in, the radiator fan must blow). If it ims not blowing,
the radiator fan motor may be burned out ($40).
2. Check / replace "cooling fan" fuse ($1) and / or "cooling fan" relay switch
($7).
3. Radiator clog (possible)
Hope this helps!

98 Mustang v6 - no AC


Make sure the radiator pressure cap is the correct one and that the hose is not soft--check the lower hose and heater hoses for softness as well. They should be firm, but not hard or cracking. The temperature sensor is reporting normal operating temperature, so it and the thermostat are working correctly (hot water would blow out of the radiator if it were stuck). Check the cooling fan for free turning and no noise. Check it's grounding connection. Check the fuse box for blown fuses to the fan and to the A/C compressor. Make sure all the relays and fuses are firmly pressed into their sockets. Check the A/C compressor clutch winding for resistance--should not read infinity. Does the blower motor for the heater/A/C run when either is turned on? The A/C switch on the dash may be defective.

Ford crown victoria ac not working. need help to centralize on the problem - compressor does not engage


If the compressor doesn't engage..it could be the pressure switch and or it could also be low in a134 to the system.
Best would be to jump the clutch wire from the compressor (i.e. direct tht wire on the positive terminal or any nearest available 'live' point).
Let the car's engine run and also the AC control switch to "ON' postion having the blower fan inside the car running.
Once done all this check if the compressor is now running and if theres cooling inside the car and also best would be to check the sight glass for any bubbles , this is normally situated around the filter/drier at around the condensor infront of the radiator or within the area.
If the compressor runs and theres cooling thn theres a problem with your pressure switch, if theres low cooling thn you may need to recharge the a134 and run a leakage test.
Hope this helps!

2001 Mustang Gt A/C not cooling


You might not have enough R134A in it the system should hold 3 - 5 lbs of pressure if I remeber right. But if the clutch is kicking in then its working but you might not have enough R134A. Buy the kit that has the pressure guage with a trigger on it so you can add what you need. When you fill it turn car on and ac on high then fill it. When ac is off the clutch should spin freely if not then your compressor is junk. As for the slight grinding noise just to make sure with CAR OFF turn the clutch on the compressor and make sure its not rubbing the pulley on the compressor.
