Question about 2004 Dodge Intrepid
A/c on 2004 dodge intrepid. evaporator was replaced last year. now, i've noticed while driving on interstate at a steady speed, somewhere in 90 minutes to 2 hours the a/c stops blowing out cold air. i've been told it might be the clutch or a high/low pressure problem but everything else about the system is fine. i've done temperature readings in the a/c ducts using dealer's temp probe. on a 5 hour drive, it started putting out cold air at 46 degrees. as the drive continued, we took temp readings every 15 minutes. the temp just kept going up and up and about 2 hours in, the air coming out of the duct was 69. it never went back down. in fact, it went up to 71 degrees and stayed at 70-71 degrees the rest of the 3 hours of that 5 hour drive. the dodge service department says this is normal. it didn't do this the first few years i had the car. service department put in a co-pilot monitor and i drove with that in the car and the service department says they cannot find anything wrong.
they have said that when the weather is 90 degrees or hotter that's the best the a/c can do--is put out a temp of 70 degrees? funny, i've driven rental cars in phoenix and through the desert of arizona in mid-summer with temps over 100 and never sweated like i have in this intrepid.
Sounds like it has a slow leak in it i would put dye in it and drive with it on for about 3 days and take a light see if u see dye comeing out anywhere
