Customer Question

2008 Ford f-150 base truck with a 4.6. I have a problem with it taking a long time to get cold air of the vents. Takes a good mile of driving for it to start to get cool. I had the system recharged recharged with no change. The pressure readings are where they need to be?

Hello, if the vehicle is taking a while to cool down but pressure seem ok its usually a failed compressor. Over time the compressor can get weak and the only symptom you see if the vehicle isn't cooling as efficiently as it should be.
