Sorry I'm just now getting back to you. Our scan tool does read live data including the temp sensor readings. I will put the gauges back on the car to get the readings, as well as further check the function of the temp door first thing in the morning. I don't think I mentioned it before but the passenger side vents blow alot cooler than the driver side.
gauges read 60 and 280. center vents are blowing a cool 72 degrees on both sides. compressor was recently replaced (new/reman). pinched off heater hoses with no change in temp, so I believe air box function is ok. I'm leaning toward the orifice tube at this point since its an inexpensive and quick repair, though I know new/reman compressors sometimes fail prematurely.
These pressures do seem high so I wonder if there is a slight restriction. Remove the orifice tube to check for contaminants.
Ok sounds good. If you have not already done so we should vacuum down the system to gt rid of any moisture. We can have a problem with the accumulator in the passenger wheel well.
Replaced the accumulator and charged the system but its still performing about the same as it had before. The a/c got down to upper 60s/low70s at idle then upper/mid 60s while revved to 2k rpm on a cold start. Low side pressure around 50 and high side 250.
P.S. I removed actuators at airbox and manually actuated doors to position for max cooling/low temp so I'm certain they aren't part of the problem.
Ok make sure we have good air flow through the condenser so make sure it is not clogged with debris. Another possibility is a defective compressor but sounds more like a restriction in the system. Let me know
