A/C problems

I'm pretty sure the "silver bullet" needs the ac charged cause it blows cold driving but warms idling. I don't have gauges or I'd check it out myself. However the 250 worker I had charged last summer and is still having probems. It'll blow cold while driving but when idling will blow about 60 degrees. Wondering if there is something else I should be checking besides pressure.

these trucks by design run hot water through the core in all settings there is a valve , I think from a ranger that you can put in the heater hose to divert the water around the core while the heat or defrost is not desired. I have done this and it made a tremendous difference in the A/C.

I'll have to look into that. Maybe a simple ball valve would work as well to completely bypass during summer.

On my early 99 I used to have the same problem. Well the radiator went out one day so I replaced and since I like to paly in the mud the condensor and intercooler and radiator were all packed with mud once I cleaned everything out the air blew snowballs then. Maybe there is too many bugs in it or something besides just mud .02

Yeah I have been hearing about that too. I'll clean the condensor this weekend. I also did a search and found this link: http://www.dieselsite.com/index.asp?...PROD&ProdID=21
So with summer coming up I might just make something up myself that is like that but not automatic..
