    Why do you need to flush your A/C system? What is it not doing or doing incorrectly?

    I replaced the drier and the compressor (that had lost lubricant and got hot enough to burn the serpentine belt into after stopping the engine). A local tech thinks the valves are OK due to the temp of the suction line at the compressor, and that the inside airflow seems to be restricted and the mixing door may not be working properly.
