Recieved car after my father died in 2004 with 30k. A/C cooled ok for
the first summer, but I really didn't drive it much, so I'm not sure if
it was better then (2nd car). Last summer a/c was poor, checked
pressures and they were ok both high and low. Took a shot at
replacing the evap temp probe, but no joy. Air from main vents is
approx. 80 degrees when @ idle, doors shut and recycle on @ 95 degrees
ambient (and will slowly creep up if you continue to sit and don't
drive). Blew compressed air up the evap. pan drain, but it seemed to
be ok, and does drip water.
When driving in early am when ambient is cool (68 or so), it will blow
down to approx. 40 degrees.
Took it to the car wash and washed out the condensor. Fans seem to
cycle ok. No change.
So, are these cars known for poor a/c performance? Any ideas on where
to go next? Oklahoma is hot!
Thanks in advance!
