Air Conditioning

Well my air doesn't work anymore. It will blow somewhat "cool" air but it really just makes it hotter in the cab. Any ideas?

Look at your compressor, where the shaft comes out. There is a seal there that will leak from time to time. If so, you will have to pull it out and replace the seal, and take it somewhere that will be able to pull a vacuum and recharge it. If its not leaking shot do a gas'n'go (charge it back up).

You to put gauges on it first before you try anything. That will tell you if your low on refrigerant or have an electrical/mechanical issue.

Have the pressure tested, mine quit working last year and it turned out that one of the hoses was rubbing on the engine and finally rubbed a hole in the hose.

If it is leaking, i have seen guys put a dye in the system to help identify the leak.
