AIR Conditioning HELP!?? 2000 4.6 V-8
I have a 2000 Mercury Marquis 4.6 liter V-8 of Course.. Basically Same as Ford Crown Victoria Of course...
MY AC All of A SUDDEN STOPPED WORKING 4 days Ago!!! 100+ Degree Temps in Lower South Carolina~ Too!
I have Tried to troubleshoot this issue for a few days, and use process of (cheap) Elimination to fix..
First thing that Happened: The AC would not Turn on and Blow Any Air (hot or Cold). At all!
Played With Int. Climate Controls & Turned car on and off, AC then Worked Fine For about a 30 minute drive, turned it off, for a quick stop, Then it would ONLY BLOW Warm or HOT AIR.
Then It Stopped Blowing ANY AIR AT ALL Again..
AFTER EXAMINATION I NOTICED THAT THE CLUTCH (with three little bolts) on Front bottom of serpentine Belt Was Not Turning.. The pulley/belt and everything else seems to be Working Fine.
So I replaced the AC Cut off Relay, FOAB-19919 Something like that (black box). Still Nothing.
Then I replaced BOTH of the AC Compressors' Control or Pressure Switches.
This Vehicle HAS Two or two of something Similar.. One Located Next to Where You would Add Freon- 2 Prong Plug in small round cylinder shape.
THEN ALSO Replaced The other Which is Located towards to front of the Engine above the radiator and above the A/C Compressor Clutch and Pulley.
This was a 4 prong plug type deal a little larger than the other I replaced.
After replacing Both of these Control Switches, It Then Began to Blow Air Again, BUT NOTHING COLD.
Air Was ICE Cold Up until the point it Went out. LAdy at Autparts Store said it probably was not Freon, I needed..
I AM SORRY IF I SOUND IGNORANT To THIS, But Iam Not An Expert and a Younger fella, Never had this issue.
PLEASE ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
IS IT THE COMPRESSOR??????
Trying everything before I have to take it to someone to look at, When I CANNOT Afford to do plus the card has 285K Miles.
Please help, Dying in HEAT Down Here!! :(
