RE: [DML] Re: Air Condition at Highway Speeds

We discussed this on the other list Bob..

I told you, it is possible that when you recently
replaced your AC hose the system was not evacuated and
charged properly.

Assuming you have an earlier car that only has the
low-pressure switch, it is possible the high is WAY
TOO HIGH causing it to create extra heat in front of
the radiator.

Hook a gage set up to the AC and see of if both the
high AND low are where they should be (you calculate
it based on ambient air temperature... or use the
table in the service manual).

NO, the AC compressor should not stay on all the time
