Re: 99 Maxima poor cooling

Or you could just turn AC on as soon as you start a cold engine, while the coolant is still cool. If you get anything better than 70F vent - and ideally this has to happen in a few secs with a brand new compressor and a properly charged and oiled system, more so when in the shade - reheating is you...

Re: 2000 Excursion Rear AC Issues

Yes it dropped from the 325 when I misted the condenser. I have a fan clutch in the garage which I haven’t installed due to the truck not overheating. When my '98 Frontier developed a pinhole in its high pressure line on a 119F afternoon a few years ago, I also found that its fan clutch was bad, an...

Re: 99 Maxima poor cooling

Vent temp: 70 One thing I would like to point out is the low side line feels ice cold like a can right out of the refrigerator. The vent temp stays around 70 but still has a funny kind of musty smell to it. Hopefully this will help diagnosis. Hold on - if the low side line at the evaporator is ice ...

Re: 99 Maxima poor cooling

If you're in north Phoenix, I'd take to Smart Automotive on north Cave Creek Rd.

If you're south or in east valley, take to Salem Boys Auto in Tempe.

Folks form the north don't realize that a 1999 vehicle in Arizona can still be pristine.

Re: 2014 GMC Sierra not cooling well

My 2005 Yukon had hot air coming out of the vents, and turning off ignition and restarting the engine temporarily fixed it. I had a bad actuator so hot air was getting mixed in, replaced the actuator to fix correctly. You may be able to get by, by turning the actuator manually and unplugging its har...

Re: Compressor Cycling

New Member here. . . . First off, I don't know squart about AC systems except they're supposed to keep me cool. I recently recharged my system, with a DIY unit from a local parts store.

Re: High Pres Line Splice

I have aluminum line on the high pressure side and need to attach two tubes together. Can I use the flare fitting parts, which are brass, to connect two aluminum pipes to make one? I use these on copper tubing all the time for propane, but propane is typically very low pressure after the regulator,...
