New pump is expensive want to make sure its not something else. Everything seems to be working fine. But, do you think this could be the beginning of that type of situation? There is nothing wrong with the car. Justin Hi Morgan, You can give that a shot your self, however it is a good idea every few years to remove the R134a, pull the system into vacuum , add fresh oil and refrigerant. It held, but blew hot. Dont see a lot of Debris or Expansion valve issues, but Debris would ruin even a new Valve so its possible. Thought this was old info but maybe you can help me too :D.
Thanks for all your posts. I think it is just that the clutch sticks when it is warm. At this point I was sure the clutch itself needed replacing but I was unable to find a replacement clutch for sale. Talk about taking down the heavyweights. I added this in water and drove home with no problem. Since this seems to be common knowledge, was there a recall? When an ac system has a low charge the performance will most definitely suffer. Should the system, be flushed before trying recharge since the stop leak was introduced, could it compromise sensors? Justin Thanks for the quick response! I recently purchased a 1995 Subaru Legacy.
I thought it may be a tube that was running down the beam and then I noticed a slight crack in the beam where the fluid continued to drip from. Or is something wrong with the clutch as a result of the damaged pulley? Happened last week in 55 degrees at 1030pm. Hello Tom, If the clutch is worn it would cause intermittent symptoms and could start out at higher temps as things have expanded due to heat. Several days later, when it was very hot, I tried to use it and it cycled on and off rapidly. As I was finishing my drive I pulled into a parking lot and scraped the bottom behind the front tire. The recall began October 31, 2017. Took it back, he drove it 4.
There is no way I can know whats the matter from here. Plus the vehicle engine was running so smooth I was perplexed at what had caused it to die all of a sudden. I removed some of the refridgerent and then it worked great for a month or so. Of course mechanics get pissy if you make suggestions, but I almost want to forward this url to them. Shelia I also have a question about my cooling system on my 2000 outback has 220.
I think there maybe some miscommunication. I can only imagine this will get worse just like last time. They sent some guy out to meet with me and discuss the problems. I purchased the vehicle in another state before moving to my current location and it is being serviced under the extended warranty plan. Or it could have developed a small leak regardless of service history.
My only car since purchase until my death as pensioner now. Generally speaking, the receiver-drier looks the same, and it serves the same purpose, but again critical differences do exist and proper identification is important. Ask for a Rep to meet you at the Dealership, show him your concern, let Subaru tell you if its normal , compare a few cars. The 2000 to 2004 Legacy and Outback suffer from leaks at the 2 Ac hoses one from the compressor to the condenser and one form the compressor to the Evap core. What do you think about this? I would read the two head gasket articles I have written on this site. During the span of one minute it will blow cold and then cycle very briefly to less cold or even warm the hotter the day the warmer it blows , then back to cold.
I just had it serviced, there are no leaks, the freon and everything was replaced. I am about to finally give in and take it to a shop. I check fuse, and relay under hood and there is a jumper underneath the relay that jumps 12v to the compressor? Currently, it runs fine at idle, but as soon as you rev it up it starts to squeak. Thought maybe cabin filter was extra dirty but even with removed still does same thing. When the clutch engages correctly and the compressor spins, the ac is nice and cold, but when this squealling happens, the air is not cold, the moaning and popping happen which all stops when the ac switch is turned off. Even the mechanics I mentioned it to were surprised. I keep my dual-climate control system on 70 degrees all the time.
Justin The air conditioner on my 2004 Legacy 35th Anniversary Wagon did not cool well when it was over 80 degrees, for 5 years. It will begin to transition from cold air to hot air other times. I am having the same issues with my 2003 Outback. Thanks, Glen During the past week I noticed a sort of clicking noise coming from the dash, and then the past 2 days have heard a sort of slushing noise like water. I was wanting to replace it myself. Could this be an overcharged system on a hot day? Steve Good afternoon, I have a 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon with a manual climate control knob half blue, half red.
