Question about 2004 Chrysler Sebring
I recently bought a 2003 Chrysler Sebring LXi Coupe for my daughter. It has the 3.0 V6, only 24K miles, very clean, and it runs wery well. The only problem is that the AC doesn't cool that well. The blower is strong, but the air takes a very long time to get cold, and then it seems to waver between cold and warm.
I measured the low and high side pressures as follows: Ambient temp - 91 deg F, altitude - 2500 ft (I live in the Mojave Desert), A/C off - 95 psi on both. A/C on - Low is 38-40 psi, and high is 175-190 psi. I haven't been able to find the pressure specs for this vehicle, and I don't want to add coolant without knowing what the correct pressures should be. My Haines manuals don't have the information. Any help would be appreciated.
By the way, even though I'm in the desert, my Suburban will ice my eyebrows.
No, that guy is an idiot. Freon, (i.e. R12) is NOT compatible in any way with the current R134A systems. FREON has essentially been banned due to it's destructive nature to the Ozone layer, which obviously is where That guy lives..
I am in the exact same situation you are with your car. I have the A/C Manifold gauge kit, with the adapters to check both sides of the system and refill it if needed. I too have the haynes book and was seriously disapointed they did not include anything other than the amount of refigerant needed, but that's if you evacuate the system completely, and refill it.
I will be contacting my local Chrysler dealership to get the info. The books idea of seeing if the two tubes are about the same temp just doesn't do it for me.

Hello Bill !
Congratulations for the new car - a great car, you will see ...
About the air conditioner system - you must refill it with a new freon gas. It's not so much expensive ( ~ 90 $ ) ... but beware of an eventually leaking gas from the coolant system -
