The vehicle has 151000 miles. I live in Las Vegas. Outside temperature is over 110F. AC clutch engages.
It doesn't stop working. It just blows warm air after an hour or so on long trips. It does get cold air at first. Yes I have done visual inspection and the AC clutch is spinning.So just to confirm.... When it has stopped working, you have opened the hood and visually seen the front portion of the AC Clutch spinning while you have no A/C,,, correct??
Bad thermostat?Hey guys ---- this is the old ice-up syndrome in the evaporator.
It's icing up and blocks the air flow and stops chilling the air.
The abundant melted condensate under the AC plenum is the big clue.
This is either a bad thermostat or a slightly low Freon charge.
Yeah --- there's a thermostat --- or sensor that is in the evaporator to measure the temp of the core to keep it from freezing.Bad thermostat?
