2003 echo AC weirdness

Postby Lesharoturbo » Thu Jun 20, 2013 2:26 am

My 2003 echo is cooling well only at idle. When driving, it will shut down after about 15-20 minutes and not come back on until 15-20 minutes. At idle, it gets cold and stays cold but if it turn it off manually, it will not come on for 15-20 minutes.]

Pressure at idle low - 50psi high 195psi
@1500 rpms low - 25-30psi high 195 psi

static after shutdown (manual or otherwise) low 115psi high 195 psi

Is my compressor shot?

Thanks

Bernie

I guess you are all as confused as I am. I do not have much experience with AC systems in general, but do know hte basic of how thye work.

I guess my next step is to add some R134a up to normal system pressures and report back.

Thanks for all of the views!
