Question about 1999 Dodge Ram

Open Question

1996 Ram A/C

I'm having problems with my A/C. The truck was parked for about 5 months and everything worked fine prior. Now the A/C doesn't blow cold inside the cab, under the hood the compressor turns and the high pressure side feels very cold

Any ideas?

if your high pressure side feels cold it's not suppose to be. you have a blockage and chances are it's your dryer. the high pressure shoiuld be hot not cold. go get it evaced and replace the dryer and recharge. also make sure you power wash the condenspor dirt and grime block the airflow.

It probably low on coolant. The heater will blow cold when there is not enough water (coolant) to keep the heater core full. Check the radiator (not the overflow reservoir) when it's cool.

Sounds like maybe a motor mount may have broken,if you
open the hood and put the car in drive ,then neutral then reverse
the engine should only "rock" about an inch or so,if it really jumps
that is the problem.

1996 ParkAvenue Buick want crank turn the key makes no sound but everything comes on radio lights have checked starter, new battery fuses


GM cars are notorious for faulty anti theft security systems. When these fail, the car thinks its being stolen and shuts down the starter. Most noticeable symptoms are the car not starting, everything else still working, and a light illuminated on the dash that says "security". If you see this light when it doesn't start, then this is 100% your problem. Go to this link for info and ways to fix it yourself for cheaper. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Try putting it in neutral before putting it in drive. the pump doesn't engage in park and sometimes the fluid leaks back out of the torque converter. I have the same problem in my 2004 Ram 3500 and 70 Challenger.

Is it the cold weather not allowing my car to go in drive?


Yes the cold can do strange things. Try leaving the car to warm up for 10 min prior to driving.

I had the same problem and ended up changing the oil pump and it did not fix it. (Peace of mind anyway and it was cheap) I replaced the pressure sensor (that happens to be tucked in deep between the back of the engine and firewall) and the pressure gauge worked just fine after that.
