Question about 1995 Volvo 960
Today i noticed that my AC was not cooling at all. The problem that i am having is the ac blows cold air when sitting (of course with the egnition running) but as soon as i accelarete the ac fans slow down to the minimum.
This does not seem logical as the AC compressor is run off of a belt attached to the engine. If you hear the fan spinning and can hear the relay click when the AC is turned on, it is engaging properly. If you run the AC full blast for about 10-15 minutes and look under the hood you should be able to find the lines for the AC and see some condensation on one portion and feel heat coming off the other portion. The AC line should be a relatively thin silver colored pipe with 2 fittings on top, one high pressure and one low pressure. Assuming everything is running as it should, and the AC is simply not cold (which is the most common problem), you can buy an AC recharge kit at your local auto parts store. Depending on the year of the car, you may need to bleed the system of the old refrigerant as they changed the standard freon used in recent years. The only moving parts in the system are the fan and compressor, so if there is a drop in speed, it will be one of these components.
