I posted a letter about a week and a half ago. I wrote about the trouble with my air conditioning. My car is a 1991 dodge stealth, an automatic base model. Everytime I use my AC my car acts very different. It feels like the whole car is going to fall apart. Once the car actually shut down, but I was able to restart it soon after. People responded to my previous letter, and they said that my AC compresser was bad. Recently I found out that this is not the problem. My AC compresser and the clutch are engaging as they are supposed too, and the mechanic told me that my problem could be in some of the sencers. I checked all of my relays, and fuses. They are all fine. My AC is blowing cold air, and my car runs just fine when the AC is not on. Any help, or hints that you can offer me please offer it here, so that I dont have to spend money left and right.
have you messed with any vac. lines lately? On my 97 Probe GTS I disassembled the top half of the engine, got everything back on right except I couldn't figure out where some of the damn vac. lines went. Ever since, when running the a/c and i let it out of gear, the car just dies because its not compensating for the loss of power from the a/c. Haven't fixed it yet, I just stopped using the a/c. Are you just having problems at idle, or when your driving too. If its just at idle, turn up your idle speed for a temporary fix. If its at all time, ask Jeff L. he seems to know everything.
...and when i start car i mean when car is in park whith a/c on sound just perf...and blow cold air??????????????????? idle is fine ac kick in just fine and car seem like car-engine dont have any problem push a/c
my probe also ran fine without the A/C on. kinda describe a little more of what happens. When A/C is on, does it hesitate, or does it run fine until you let off the gas and it just dies? You might have to take it to a dealership.....wait, no that might be the worst idea so far. I don't know man, I'll ask the mechanics around here when I have the chance to, see what I can find out. Good luck man.
