Customer Question

the compressor is working and a guage says it is full of feron, but around town it does not cool my 1999 chevy suburban
JA: Have you checked the Freon level? Have you checked the hoses?
Customer: the feron is good, the hoses appear to be good
JA: What is the model of your '99 Chevy?
Customer: suburban 1500
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I made sure the compressor is kicking on and it is, I then hooked up a guage and it indicated it was full
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: on the highway it seems to cool good, but around town it only blows warm air
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, does the gauge show a reading in PSI and if so what is it? Can you hear the cooling fan kicking in at idle?

I did not get a psi reading, but the needle went all the way past the green and into the black
