2000 Chrysler LHS Question: New A/C compressor, air not overly cool...Why?
Just had a new A/C compressor added b/c old one was leaking as determined with a dye test. No other leaks detected. Now the a/c blows cool air, but not overly cool. (Is parked in garage.) Why would this happen? My concern is the a/c wont be able to keep up as the temperatures rise this summer. Mechanic states a/c cools to 60 degrees! Isn't it supposed to cool to around 40-50 degrees? He claims if it cools to 45 degrees evaporator will freeze. I know freezing happens at 32 degrees...is this not true for the evaporator? i have spent so much and feel i am being taken. Thanks. - ragong01
Drive it down the road a few miles, aint going to cool very much sitting still. ("Parked in a garage") - pushrod
Poss. blend door issue? I don't know about the others , but Hondas' on average , checking the way Honda specifies- center vent medium fan speed cooling set on MAX/AC (lowest temp & recirculating not 'fresh' )I've measured vent temps as low as 28F (infrared therm - aimed at back of vent)! I consider up to 36F on older models(2005& back) acceptable. BUT again I stress , that's just on the Hondas' I see. - ziptie12
