Do you hear the compressor kick on if you turn on the AC?
yea. but hot air comes outstevesquick92 said:Do you hear the compressor kick on if you turn on the AC?
no.. i didnt add any. But i didnt have any caps for like 4 months.. i finally got them yesterday and recharged today. i'll check over the lines though.. cause there can always be a possibilty one didnt get connected during the swapstevesquick92 said:Did you add refrigerant oil? From Service manual:
"After performing any refrigerant recovery or recycling operation, always replenish the refrigerant system with the same amount of the recommended refrigerant oil (ND-8 PAG R-134a refrigerant oil) as was removed. Too little refrigerant oil can cause compressor damage, and too much can reduce air conditioning system performance.
PAG refrigerant oil is much more hygroscopic than mineral oil, and will absorb any moisture it comes into contact with, even moisture in the air. The PAG oil container should always be kept tightly capped until it is ready to be used. After use, recap the oil container immediately to prevent moisture contamination."
Also, did you double check all the connections on the compressor, reciever/drier, condenser etc.? Also, check all the caps to make sure none are missing. You could possibly have filled it then it all leaked out before you had a chance to try it out. I would just double check everything, and make sure you add that refrigerant oil to keep your compressor from crapping out later.
haha i guess you found this thread nevermind then. lolrgsales2k said:Did you ever fix your A/C? I'm having the same problem since I did my swap a couple months ago.
i'm gunna try to take it into dodge so maybe they can see what the problem is. Whats a reciever/drier? so that way i can see if its bad and Oasis dodge wont rip me off.stevesquick92 said:also... the receiver/drier may need replaced. I read in the factory service manual that if it goes bad, or if the a/c system is removed from the car, that this will need replacing. Not sure if that's the answer, but it's worth looking in to.
I'm doubting the drier is the cause, but in the Factory Service Manual, it states that the A/C system WILL NOT work if this part is bad.VanillaXtract said:All the dryer does is remove moisture from the system (like a big packet of silica), the system will still work if it is bad. I would double check the compressor, make sure it is getting power when the A/C is on. If it has refrigerant in it, then it's not leaking. And since air is blowing, so it would have to be the compressor.
I don't think it's the compressor. I've tried my stock compressor and the one that came with my SRT motor, same result with both. Unless they're both bad.VanillaXtract said:All the dryer does is remove moisture from the system (like a big packet of silica), the system will still work if it is bad.
