I think in 95 is when they did switch over to r134a. Did you buy the gauge to make sure you have enough refrigerant in there?

It's 134, and if the compressor is on and its full and not cold, oriface tube or evaporator is filthy (had that happen in a 300m)

Detailed explanation Rob? Is it possible to clean this and get it working properly?

My crown vic had a problem where my AC system was dirty.

Had it charged every couple months and they (Pro HVAC company my dads work contracts) tried to clean it, but mine was just too bad.

You MAY be able to get it cleaned, otherwise you may have to replace most if not all of the system.

Yes, it's possible, and fairly easy, there are vent cleaners you can buy. When I encountered it, it was a Chrysler 300M, the a/c was full, the oriface tube got replaced, I pulled a vac on the system and it held, compressor cycled, everything was working right but no cold air. Driving hwy 5 a few days later I had the a/c on max, praying, because it was hotter than sin driving in august in the sun with no a/c :squint: Wasn't doing anything then I heard a wierd sound, like scraping?

Then dirty ice chips suddenly blew out the vents and the air was COLD again. The evaporator was so dirty it froze solid, no air was going through it! :laugh:

I put a can of cleaner/sanitizer through the vents and it was fine afterwards till UPS smashed it....

"80% of the world's freon can be found in old refrigerators!!!" bonus points if you can name the movie.

An inconvenient truth?

quick fix, find a recked car or one messed up on craigslist for about 300$ or so, swap all the components, give it a recharge and you're good to go! :) That's what i'm doing with my conversion... all the A/C stuff was gutted, so i found a 91 celica GTS on C.L.org and am in the process of swapping all the components over :)
