Question about 2005 Ford Freestyle

1 Answer

2005 Ford Freestyle AC compressor replaced!

I have a 2005 Freestyle and the ac just wouldn't get cold, it would cool, but not get cold. I took it to my friendly repair station and it was the compressor, the high was reading low and the low was reading high. I only have 56K miles on this car!! The entire compressor needed to be replaced.
Anyone out there with the same problem? I am very ********** about this, I still have a lot of life left in this car--I have never had to replace a compressor in any of my cars, not even the last car I had with 125K miles on it...the ac was cold, cold, cold.....
I wrote to Ford and they blew me off---this WILL be my last Ford!

    Agreed, but I'm not putting up with this BS so I'll take it to the State Attorney General and BBB next.

05 Freestyle AC Compressor Shot

Better install that compressor as SOON as you open the system, or you'll be changing two other expensive parts! Evacuate again, install oil, and refrigerant.
