Dodge Ram AC question

Recommended Posts


So, what are the signs of low refridgerant? My AC seems to work fine for about 20-30 mins then gets warm and muggy. Then I shut it off for about 15 mins and turn it on and it works fine. What gives?

three questions

1. What year and motor?

2. Does it seem like there is a reduced flow of air out of the vents?

3. When it starts to blow "warm and muggy" have you checked to see if the compressor is still engaged?

3. When was the last time it was serviced?

3. Have you noticed if you temp gauge seems to be hotter than usuall?

3. does it have manuel or automatic climate control (i'm not even sure if they offer auto climate in the ram but if they do and yours does have it I may have the solution.

If it was low on refridgerant it shouldn't get real cold or cool at all. I suspect that the compressor has stopped running when you start to feel it getting warm. Could this be caused by an overcharge of the system (a/c is not my fortay and niether is spelling as you can tell grin.gif)?

Heres something to try instead of turning it off for 15 minutes leave it on and see if it starts to cool again in about 15 minutes. I have a feeling it won't.

Get back to us with the answers to the "3" question and we'll see if we can't get it figured out!!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
