Dodge Ram AC question

2 posts in this topic

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!!

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
