it seems to me my a/c isnt as strong as it used to be. my wife thinks the
same thing, she thinks it used to run cooler and not take as long to cool
the van down.
i brought it the dealer today, told them it seems like its been getting
weaker over the last 2 years. they tell me it will be $85 for the a/c
service and thats just the base price... after about 30 minutes they tell me
when they checked the a/c is was 36° and their not going to charge me
anything because its fine.
so you all think its really ok? maybe I'm crazy?
36 degrees is great for output temp, but you may have an airflow problem. The
(refrigerant) system sounds to be in great shape. The air is plenty cool, but
not enough of it. Check the pollen filter, if equipped. They filter the air
from outside. If you run the AC mainly on MAX, there can be dust buildup in the
evaporator due to pulling it in from near the passenger floor. I don't recall if
evaporator can be accessed without removing the instrument panel or not on a
The really low vent temp also leads me to think this is the problem, as if
full airflow the output would be closer to 40 degrees.
