Subject: FTE 97up - Air Conditioning / Super Chip

I have my new 1999 F-350 Crewcab w/V-10, auto, for about seven weeks and 2,500
miles. The air conditioning seems weak at best and drops way off at idle. I
recently rented a new F-150 for a business trip and the A/C almost froze me
out of the cab. Is there some difference in the A/C system Ford puts in these
two trucks? Anyone been having any A/C problems of their own?

Just read a post where someone put an after-market chip in their truck. I
think I may have asked this once before, but doesn't that void the Ford
warranty?

I believe they pump engine coolant to the oil filter area instead of pumping
oil to an external cooler.

Improved Cold Weather performance means that in areas where it is below
freezing the condensation from the exhaust would get on the rear wheel and
freeze leaving one wheel covered in ice or frost. (this was also a pain if
you live on gravel roads, because in the summer the moisture makes dust
stick to this one wheel so it gets dirty even though the rest of the truck
is clean.)

On my V-10 it has an oil to coolant heat exchanger.

The AC in my '97 F-150 was much better than the one in my '98, but I can see
no real differences. Almost have to keep the '98 on recirc on hot Southern
days to keep cool.

Yea, I have a 99 F-350SD V-10 auto and the A/C is weak too. Is this what=

Anyone else?
