Is there an air conditioning/heating forum?
Because if so, I havent found it yet...
I did a general search through several of the forums and havent had any luck.
My air conditioner has become flaky, some days it works, some days it doesnt. When it does work, its perfectly cold and flows perfectly at every setting. 2000 F250 CC 4x4 7.3 265,000 miles+.
When I turn on the AC, the clutch engages the compressor, (I even hear a "click" sound) the lines are cold and build condensations as usual, so I know the compressor is working, but no air coming out of the vents, or the defrost, or anywhere else. I'm thinking the blower motor might be going out, but would it be flaky at first, then finally die? I would think if it was going out, it would just stop all together.
Would this be the most likely cause? Is there anyway to check it by jumping a lead directly to it or something like that so I can be sure it is the problem before purchasing a new one? I want to make sure it's not a wiring problem or a relay of some sort. I'm on a budget this week so gotta be sure...
Any info or help would be great! It's supposed be 98* today here in DFW with a heat index of 105* and even with my 4x70 air, I might as well have the heat turned on... Thanks
