Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
When at idle and the AC stops, does the air flow from the dash, change to a different location?
Same test, are the evaporator lines going to the firewall no longer cold and wet?
Do you have the tools to monitor the high and low side pressures?
So far the symptoms are pointing to a weak compressor to blame.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
Thanks, ***** ***** select max ac blower speed 2 and hold the throttle down to 1500 rpms can you give me the max and min pressure on the low and high side?
Dang I forgot to ask the ambient air temp during the test. Your low side pressure indicates its 70 degrees outside and the high side pressure indicates its 107 degrees. So there is a pressure issue going on but need the outside temp to figure out where and why.
Thanks At 95 degrees you should of been at 40-78 and 182-257 your at 35 and 200-300.
So your low side is to low, and your high side is to high. There is not a chart for those symptoms together. Below is a link where I have highlighted the 2 that fit best.
It may be best to evacuate the freon, put the system into a 30 minute vacuum, then recharge with an AC machine.
