Re: [DML] air conditioning.

I've been using R134 for over four years in Houston and it is mostly fine.
Sometimes it is not quite enough until the car is moving.
Are you sure your fan is turning the right direction and moving the right
speed? Maybe the coils in the fan box are clogged and not able to touch and
cool the air properly.

On the subject of the door vents-- I hate them. They don't seal well and I
don't think they can be pointed right to hit me in the face. I have to give
the engineers a C on these guys. I have better luck with the front vents.
