99 ford mustang: pep boys..recharged..a new AC control relay, CCRM…

Customer Question
I have a 99 ford...
I have a 99 ford mustang, took it to pep boys to have the air recharged. Pep boys tested the car and showed i needed a new AC control relay, CCRM, Orifice tube dryer. We have replaced everything except the orifice tube dryer and nothing seems to work. It will not take a charge, blows out hot air. When the system is evacuated is it supposed to be -19 psi before recharging? A/C cluch will not turn on, but system is empty.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
