1999 Ford Taurus A/C Out

At high rpms 2.5 + driving around 70mph, the compressor stops working. I just had the refrigerant charged as well and the pressure is good. The first time this happened, there was smoke from the vents. I checked the heater coil and found no leaks also.

How to bypass air conditioning compressor on 2002 ford taurus?


You would need to replace the compressor with an A/C illiminator bracket/pulley, you cannot just put a shorter belt as it would still make contact with the a/c pulley, at least on a 3.0L OHV version.

Blows cold when first started and then blowes warm


I would replace the AC compressor cycling switch it may be sticking have seen it a number of times. The switch is located in the receiver dryer on the passenger side of the engine compartment. See picture below.

If this isn't the problem the AC compressor relay may also cause this, flip a coin.

03 taurus ac works at low rpm only


Well, YES, NO, and SORT-OF???

Your refrigerant evacuating and and recharging skills might be helpful, however, you cannot capture the R-134A refrigerant using the same equipment that you use on refrigerators unless you have empty refrigerant tanks to use. The refrigerants are not compatible with each other.

Then, yes, it is possible that your A/C clutch is slipping. You can verify this by listening to the sound of the compressor. You can usually hear the clutch making a grinding sound. There will usually also be a bunch of rusty-looking dust around the area of the clutch due to the metal tearing off of the clutch surfaces.

Then you need to decide if you want to replace the clutch assembly or the entire compressor. If the clutch assembly is all you need, then it can be replaced without any type of refrigerant recovery needed. It is also a whole lot cheaper to replace than the compressor (see picture and link below).
However, the clutch can be pretty tough to replace without the special tools needed - especially if you have never done one before.

AC does not work. Compressor will not engage Blower only blows on high speed. Is the two a related problem? Where should I look to solve the problem


The most common reason for the compressor not engaging is low refrigerant pressure. The ac system has a safety switch that will not allow the compressor to engage when there is not enough refrigerant pressure because the the refrigerant carries the compressor lubricant throughout the system. Have the system checked for proper charge. You probably have a leak. The fan is probably a separate issue.

No Heat in 99 Taurus


Just finished fixing my daughters 1999 taurus heat. It would blow warm only when running down the road. At idle it blew cold. I started with replacing thermostat, and water pump because they are the easier fix. Still did not help. Then I replaced the heater core. A daunting job but not that hard to move the dash slighly out of the way to replace. There is a good write up at tarusclub.com. After that, heat was better but at idle, it would still blow cool sometimes. Researched and found answer. Park car on the steepest hill you can find with front of car up. Start car and take off reservoir cap. Let car warm up and keep rpms about 1500. After a while the fluid will come running out of the car and all over the place but it will bring air bubbles with it. Reduce rpm, add more fluid and repeat about 3 times. It will make a mess but after that, the heater works perfectly. We get heat long before the temp gage indicates any and it never blows cold unless you lower the temp.
