clusco Posted March 27, 2005 Report Share Posted March 27, 2005 I really need help with my A/C system. I am at my wit's end with troubleshooting this problem. For the past 2 weeks I've really been putting in some time with my car (under the hood). Ok, on to my problem: My compressor needed to be changed so I changed the compressor. For 3 days my vents blew out cold air after the systems was charged with freon, then last night all of a sudden I only had hot air blowing out. Now I know that on our cars the compressor's relay switch will kick the compressor off when it gets low on freon so that it won't fry. So, I know or at least think that their must be a leak in the line somewhere. So today I went and bought this dye to see where the leak may be coming from. I bypassed the relay to kick the compressor on, put the A/C on high and I put the dye in the system twice and could not find any evidence of where the leak was. To recap my installation. I installed a new compressor-clutch assembly and a new drier but I DID NOT install a new condenser. Is there anyway that the condenser is at the root of my problem and it is dirty with metal shavings and it is possibly being overloaded and kicking the relay switch off?
