Hello,

I changed the FSR of my car in November, now is getting warn ion Texas and I need to use the air to cool of the hot summer. Th air is acting weird on the driver side the are is not really cold the passenger seen to be fine.

I also notice that if I set the temp to 74 F or above the fans start blow stronger and is I set it below that the fan decreases.

Any ideas of that what is going on with my car.

thanks

I read in another post that when the air system is low in gas the air flavors the driver's side, that may be your case. In my case is the other way around

hmmm good to know, I will have to recharge it at my work then. Do you know what the spec (off the top of your head) is for how many pounds in the system?

I confirm that this is due to low amount of A/C refrigerant.
It is R-134A and the weight/pressure info is under the hood of every car, on a sticker. :thumbup:

Mine is doing the same thing. It is cold on the driver side and warm on the pax side. I picked up some refrigerant and a pressure gauge. To my surprise the pressure was 45. Does that mean that I am not low on coolant? It was probably operator error. Hardly any of the can made it into the system. I still have the same issue. Any other suggestions?

:dunno:
