Question about 1999 Ford Windstar
No cold air, was told that if press. drops too far, a press. switch needs to be by-passed or something , when re-filling or won't take on a new charge? Is this correct? Too cheap to spend the $25.00 on a manual just to re-fill the air. Sorry.
yes its true that you have a pressure switch that would de-activate your compressor when pressure of gas drops to a certain level but please do not bypass it. it is there for that purpose. to save your compressor from running at low refrigerant.
you can add refrigerant using those canisters that you can buy from auto shops and choose the one with the oil charge in order to refill it also with oil to save the compressor. but gas would not be low unless you have a leak.
so if the leak is small , it might last for months, but if the leak is big, then it would probably last only for a week. it up to you..
i hope i was able to solve your problem...
pls rate me
