Question about 2004 Ford Econoline

1 Answer

My 2004 ford e150 Sherrod package van has terrible ac

Especially when at idle it is very uncomfortable.
The factory said it is within spec's but sweating inside a $30,000 van is not acceptable.
It does eventually cool off at highway speeds but not instantly. It does have rear air but all the same.
Any help would be great, the factory has been no help at all.

Hi, first, locate your a/c compressor under the hood. With the a/c on, check the compressor to see if it is "cycling" meaning the compressor clutch engages and disengages. This is easy to see, just look at your a/c pulley connected to your serpentine belt. If the 3 studs on the outside of the pulley spin and stop spinning, this is what is called cycling. Too much cycling (turns on and off frequently) means you are low are refrigerant, most likely r-134a. Eventually EVERY a/c system on a vehicle will leak due to vibrations and o-rings shrinking from outside elements. Some systems have small pinhole leaks which require an a/c recharge. BUT before assuming you need a re-charge, make sure your electric fan is working!!! The same problem will happen as you describe if your electric fan is not working, or if your electric fan has multiple speeds and one of the speeds is not working. Since you are feeling cool air, your system does NOT have a major leak, if it did, your compressor would not turn on due to no refrigerant in the system.
