OK, when I bought my T/A the air conditioning would blow slightly colder than ambient temps and at night it would be very cold. Recently the past few days it just wouldn't blow cold at all. I check the pressure with the a/c on and compressor kicked on and it was about 80psi. YIKES! I know with the pressure that high the refrigerant won't condense so it can get cold
If I leave the car running in hopes of it cooling the compressor will not cycle on and off
So I let some of the pressure out and the compressor just shuts off before it gets to the safe level. WTF so I put my dad's machine on and evacuate it completely. I go to pull a vacuum on it and notice the schrader valve on the accumulator is leaking. So I replace that and it kept 24 inches of vacuum for over half an hour. That rules a leak out of the question.
I forgot to mention I also took out the orifice tube to see if it was clogged and it was clean with very very little debris
I go to put a can of refrigerant in and about 3/4 of the bottle it stops taking it in. I remove the bottle and check pressure and its up to like 80 psi AGAIN
The belt isn't broken because I see the clutch engaging and I know its not the compressor because I can feel the car bog down slightly and increase idle again when i turn the button to max a/c.
Isn't a the secondary fan supposed to come on when I turn on the a/c? because I notice that one of them is only slightly spinning (which I guess is from the turbulence the other one is causing) then when I jump the two of the three terminals on the pressure switch it kicks on but the compressor shuts off and the SES light comes on.
I'm ALL out of ideas here
