Just moved to Texas and my A/C is not up to snuff.
Cleaned Evaporator and housing
Replaced all o-rings
Had A/C shop flush and fill
Heater core bypass
A/F fan resistor bypassed (fan on high when on)
Current gauge readings at 80º ambient:
26-30 Low / 210-225 High
Slight bubbles in sight glass
At 80º ambient, I'm getting 45-50º outlet temps.
At 95º ambient, I'm getting 60-65º outlet temps.
Evap inlet line starts to get hot around 90º ambient and I feel the passenger side of condenser getting hot (115º)
Evap outlet line is very cold and condensation is dripping off the pipe.
Using water to cool down the condenser will make outlet temps drop from 60º to 43º.
I'm inclined to replace the condenser, but I'm not sure if just adding a 7" fan to the passenger side would help instead.
What are your guys thoughts on all the above?
