2006 Chrysler T&C 3.3 (176k)
I have a 2006 T&C with 267,000 miles. My A/C was fine these past few months, until it eventually started blowing cool air. I've already had it checked for leaks, and AC compressor was replaced at 220,000. The AC compressor comes on, and stays on. Of course, as cool air is blowing. It's just not as ice cold as it was. I decided to try one of those DIY kits. Thinking it was low for whatever reason. I picked up one for about $30. I followed a YouTube to better ensure I do it correctly. Well, when I put the gauge on, it reads really low. 10 to be exact. That's why I had it checked for leaks. I went ahead and tried adding some. The guage went up some. Now we are at 25. I added more. I wasn't quite in the green yet. I added a little more. I get to the green, and it sits there for a couple seconds. Then all of a sudden, it's start falling slowly. It falls back down to around 10 (I say this because it wasn't exactly at 0, kinda hovering over it). To me, it sounds like a leak. But I had that checked out. Unless of course I'm just really low? Again, feel like that would be a leak. I've never messed with anything other than the compressor, and I had the compressor installed by the same people who checked for a leak. Any ideas? Anything at all. I sure would like the ice cold ac again. Especially considering my area is only getting worse. I'm seeing high 90s for the next 2 weeks. Thanks a ton! Doesn't make sense to me. Figured I'd ask and see what others think.
