Re: Redoing my suburban AC couple questions

When using the temp control dial and go from hot then back to cold sometimes it would stay hot. (Most likely blend actuator underneath) We HAD a 1994 Suburban and HAVE a 2005 Yukon XL (both factory R134a); both had malfunctioning actuator causing temperature to go from real-cold to hot, and that's ...
