I have a 2001 Ranger. Does Ford use a special kind of air conditioner?
Compare to other vehicles and trucks, it seems to me that it only takes a
very short time for the Ranger's air condition to kick in to blow out nice
cold air. I am here in Phoenix and the temperature is hitting 110F. Other
vehicles take at least 5 to 10 minutes for the air cond. to get cold but
Ford only takes about a couple of minutes. Does Ford use a differenent kind
of condensor and circulation system? Any comments. Thanks
No. But remember, your Ranger has a very small passenger compartment
compared to a typical car, so when you are using the MAX A/C setting
(which recirculates air inside the cab) it will cool down more quickly
than a car or a full size truck with a larger volume to cool.
Actually, if you want to cool down a hot car quickly, you
should not use recirulate. You want to pull in the cooler
outside air and force out the very hot (solar heated) inside
air. To speed things up even more, don't use recirulate and
roll down the windows for a breif period until you have
forced out all the stale, hot air in the car.
I have a 2001 Ranger. Why is it the air condition blows out cold air so
fast compare to other vehicles. I live in Phoenix and temp hits 110F daily.
Other vehicles take at least 5 to 10 minutes of driving before the air
condition blows out cold air. Ford only takes a couple of minutes. Does
Ford use a special kind of condensor and circulating system? Any coments.
no they dont use anything different... its just that your car is running
right and the fan is blowing extra fast... i do find that fords do blow
the fan a little faster than most other cars??? just my opinion, but i
dont drive too many other car.. i wish i could be complaining about the
cool of the a/c in my car right now...i need a new compressor on my
