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!!

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
