1886 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab V8 (318) Vaccum Leak

When I am holding speed as in going up a hill with my AC on recirculate, I notice that the defrosting air vents close up. We I let off the accelerator, I hear this flap (just once) of the same vents opening back up again. AC coolant is fully charged. Could this possibly be a manifold intake leak?

Thanks.

I experienced almost the exact same thing in a customer's 1997 Dodge Caravan this week except on this one,the A/C would be blowing cold out of the vents,directly at you,and when you put the accellerator down pretty hard,the vents would cease to blow,but you could hear the defroster door flap,and the defrosters blew cold air.Let off the gas pedal,it switches back the way it originally was.Wasn't the customer's complaint,but it did make me wonder.

The issue with this problem is the reserve vacuum tank has a leak. When the engine accelerates it needs the vacuum that it can supply. There is a reserve tank and a 3 way valve that permits the other functions(heater a/c) Normally a plastic bottle. The vacuum lines will show you where to find this. Use a vacuum pump to verify this bottle leaks.

My 97 dodge ram has no air coming from ac/heat vents in dash except for the top vents next to windshield. no air coming out at all of any kind all across front of dash.


Your ac blower doors that direct the air to the vents are vaccum controlled check your vaccum lines going to the ac most of the time it is a leak near the vaccum check valve. The reason it is only top vents is because it is the default setting in the system

Dodge 1500 wants to run hot


installing a bigger radiator could solve the problem, installing a transmission cooler might solve the problem, or it could be a camshaft problem. worst case - the transmission could be going out !!!
