Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My Dad's 1995 Jeep air conditioner is not working/ He has had a new compressor new o-rings and it still does not work. Everything the mechanic has done putting in new parts it still doesn't keep the coolant. They have put a lot of money out to have the air conditioner fixed and it still doesn't work. My Dad charged it and it worked for one day and that was it. Do you have any suggestions on what the problem could be?

It sounds likke there is a svere leak in your ac system. You simply need a good AC technician that knows what he is doing. The leakage should be easy to detect by what you are saying. There is a dye you can charge the system with that will make any leaks obvious. You can try that, but when it comes to repair, remember the system needs to be pulled into a vacuum before recharging with freon.

'95 Jeep Grand Cherokee - air conditioner broke


If the Orifice is clogged, you would buy a new line, but I wouldn't do that so soon.

If it leaks r134a, I would try charging it on the low side with this stuff called, Arctic Freeze available at Walmart and autozone, and places like that.

I had good luck with it on a system that holds freon marginally. It's got a sealant in it, and a special additive to the r134a that makes it cool 50% faster, and colder than just regular r134a.

You can get a large can of it with a gauge for about $35 or so.

Orifice tubes do get clogged, but if they do, then the compressor shuts off and goes on and off due to the higher than normal pressure generated in the system's refrigerant circuit.

Try the stuff, and you might be pleasantly surprised. It's cheaper than the typical professional a/c service call to do this, and it is actually very effective in my experience (as long as it doesn't leak out too fast).

Good luck on the a/c.

Is the compressor engaging? If not he needs to find if a sensor issue if its fully charged or a low pressure or refrigerant condition. You can have pressure without refrigerant.

Air conditioner wont cool off.


While your hood is open and engine running can you hear the air conditioner compressor kick on and off as the engines idleing. Check the fuse for the ac unit. And worst case it could be your compressor witch can be pretty spendy.

AIr conditioner doesn't come on


There are pressure sensors in the refrigerant plumbing that can prevent the system from starting if system pressure is low. If any of these are loose or unplugged the compressor will never engage. The compressor clutch also has a connector that can be unplugged also.
