Re: [DML] Question about a/c and hot water valve

I think you just found your problem!  The hot water valve should be  located 
right behind the engine - there are three hoses that go it and one  vacuum 
line.  If it is OEM it is probably really rusty by now.  If you  have no hot 
water valve, then hot coolant is going to your heater core, which is  warming the 
cold air from the A/C.  Good detective work by your shop!   Sometimes on here 
we forget to take into account the dreaded PO 'repairs' that  may have altered 
your car from stock.

Welp,  I took the D to the a/c shop and they couldn't really figure out why it  wasn't cooling correctly (guages showed EXACTLY what they should be according  to the manual and the fans were both working and pulling the heat away)however, the best the car could do was 59 degrees sitting at idle.  They went to looking and found out that I don't have a hot water valve at  all.  Its completely gone.
