Checked c134 pressure in limits
Replaced low pressure switch
With air on and off the engine bogged down and ran with short surges
Went back to original LPS and did not change the rough idle
Tried to go out to drive around circle had mechanical breaks had to kick out of gear to stop idle was fast and extremely rough
Gave up for the night
This morning after re install of new LPS and attach pressure gauge
Started and ran like normal until heated up about 45 sec. then back to rough idle checked pressure it was cycling between 0 and normal range

If you unplug the AC compressor so it will not work, do you still have idle and running issues?

could not find compressor plug I going to have to take to shop in morning

Remove fuse 11 under the hood, which will also disable the compressor for this test.

cover of power distribution center shows only A/C 10A and 40A RAD FAN
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
in the owners manual the A/C fuse is 11 and shown as 10 amp I did pull this fuse yesterday and nothing changed.

When you pulled the fuse did the AC keep running or was it now off and the engine still ran poor?

found problem with engine light and running rough - vacuum line had come off - put clamp on line and secured engine smooth as silk also reset engine warning light - no light now. Tried different levels of filling under fill no engage, proper level for temp. clutch cycles from 10 psi to 45 psi in 10 sec. intervals - overpressure cycled from 20psi to 60psi lasted a little longer but as soon as it got to 60 off came the clutch and back to 20. when I bled the overpressure c134 with the used dispenser with no bottle the discharge was not cold no vapor appeared to be air as I bleb to past 40 psi the clutch stopped engaging and bled down to 15 psi no sign of c134 no white cloud no cold condensation. refilled same cycling

Glad you got it resolved.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
