Customer Question

2006 tundra a/c cycles excessive in hot weather
Submitted: 11 months ago.

Does this happen while driving or only at idle? Does the a/c light flash when this happens?

Does the engine temperature stay at normal when this happens?


Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Only while idling/no flashing light, but rpm move and truck try to move forward

Thanks for the reply, sounds like it's a Freon pressure problem, try adding some freon to the system using a self service kit that costs around $35.00 and follow the instructions that come with it, if you're not comfortable doing this yourself you'll have to get an a/c tech involved that has the equipment to check the Freon line pressures and recommend what should be done.
