The fan will not necessarily come on at a given temp on vehicles with a map thermostat such as yours. Coolant temps will also vary depending on driving conditions.

That is not correct. Do some research and you will see but keep in mind not all compressors are of this type. If you look at the ac compressor in RealOem you can see the valve on the back of the...

The valvetronic motor does not move far enough in it's travel where it meets the eccentric shaft to cause any kind of whine. I'm betting that something is wrong with the valvetronic motor that you...

It's not that simple. Pressure readings change for reasons other than just how much refrigerant is in the system.
