Subject: [perf-list] Air Conditioning problem




recently driving around town I have switched on my air condtioning and the
trucks
temperature slowly rises to the H were it normally sits on the middle of
normal(1984 F-150,351W,T-18)the truck was originally shod with airconditiong so
it has the super cool fan and clutch and it did not do this last year, it has a
180 thermostat, on the highway it will heat up a little but still be okay
because the airflow?? any ideas? here in arkansas we are only around 90degrees
and i want to be able to run air at 105 degrees but i know that will be hard in
stop and go traffic
not looking for miracles just advice??


Thanks,

Joel,

I'm no expert but living in the desert makes me think about preventing
overheating on a regular basis. Since you've got an 84 maybe you need to
flush the radiator (or even have it rodded out). I assume that your
coolant is new(er) and the radiator is full. Have you changed your
T-Stat? Perhaps you need a new fan clutch? From what I read the fan
should "roar" when the engine gets hot enough to cause the clutch to
engage. For what is worth, my 96 302/auto tends to run cooler in stop
and go than it does going down the highway at 70 mph in 100+ degrees with
the AC going. Also, many people swear by the electric fan conversion.
You can move a lot more air past the radiator stopped at an idle with an
electric fan than you can with the mechanical.

Hope you get it sorted out.

Tom (in Phoenix)

P.S. As a side note. Wayne is right. The new antifreeze is "safer" than
the ethylene glycol variety but it is NOT safe for consumption.

I would suggest having the cooling system flushed and installing a good high flow electric fan that includes an A/C relay.

My 99 Ranger had the check engine light come on today. The dealer can not
take it till next week so I would like to check to make sure that my
driving to work everyday is not going to damage anything. Is there anyway
of reading the codes via the light, I do not have a tester.
