The a/c blows good since I had the condenser replaced 3

Customer Question

The a/c blows good since I had the condenser replaced 3 weeks ago because it was leaking. Now, on a hot day while driving down the road the air is coming out warm but at a stop or very slow traffic it is okay
JA: How old are the hoses? And what driving conditions do you most often encounter?

Thank you! What is your recommendation?

Are you there?
Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.

Yes, I would look for a clogged orifice tube, a stuck expansion valve or a problem with the compressor itself.

Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.

You need set of ac gauges to look at the pressures with the ac on. The pressures will help a lot with diagnosing this problem.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Again,,, it works fine at lower speeds. The orifice would be more consistent not just one speed. The gauge readings on a hot day are: low 45 and high 250

Yes they will charge you as soon as your question is responded to. You will need to contact customer service for a refund. I cannot help you with this, I am just a user of the site like yourself.

HI,

Different expert here.

I need you to hook the gages up, run them between the hood and cowl and tape them to the windshield and take a test drive. Note what the pressures are when it starts blowing warm and let me know what they were.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I can't do that until tomorrow now since the time has lapsed into my church time. Can I get a hold of you tomorrow? Or, do I need to wait until Monday?
