Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist
how much freon did you add??
did you evacuate the system for 1 hour before charging?
did you replace the dryer as well?
can you give me the high and low side gauge readings while the ac is on??
can you get a set of gauges???
the dryer has to be replaced. once the system is open, the system is contaminated with moisture and since you did not evacuate the system, that makes matters worse
in your original post, you said filter. is that the orfice tube you are referring to?? if your not sure, it is in the line, a steel line, that runs from the condenser to the evaporator.
no, it is not the whole system. there is much more to it
ok, then yes, the dryer or the big can has to be replaced. do not flush the system. just blow shop air through it. then it must be evacuated to boil out moisture and then add 2 ounces of pag oil and charge the system
it is absolutely necessary as I stated before. besides. if you replaced the compressor and orfice tube, I assume the compressor failed and debris is in the dryer. you do not want to replace the compressor again because you did not replace all the needed parts, do you??
when the system is on, touch the bottom of the dryer. how does it feel??
how does the dryer feel while running???
you are low in freon, no doubt but you still did not evacuate the system as moisture and freon do not work well together.
ok, it is supposed to be warm to the touch. you need to replace it. thats the bot***** *****ne.
you need to remove the freon again, replace the dryer, add oil as I stated before, evacuate the system and then charge it with exact amount of freon. thats the steps you need to do
