Already took the car to the dealer and they said they could not find a problem with my ac.
originally i went to barstow so my daughter could visit her mom who is in drug rehab.
it was hot andthe ac stopped working. it was clicking on and off. on the way back on the freeway it worked fine.
after i dropped my daughter and her mother off for the night at a relatives house i was driving down the street and it was not working untill i got back onto the freeway. it was 112F outside.
car works for another week with out problems but i take it to the dealer anyway and they evacuate and recharge the system.
semms like its working great yesterday since i got it.
well its 110F and its happening all the way to walmart on the street.
when i get there i hear the compressor clicking on and off and the engine reving up and down.
i pop the hood and i can see the compressor clutch enaging and disengaging once every second.
i turn the car off and go inside the walmart cause my daughter is complaining it's hot.
we leave 30 min later and it's still not working untill about half way home. it's 109F outside now and halfway home the ac is literally freezing my ass off it's feels like the freezer door wide open with the air blowing on my face. it felt GOOD! so if this darn ac compressor would make up its mind i would be happy.
anyone else have these problems.
dangit i should have filmed it all with my camera phone.
i have 24k on my Z and would very much like this replaced before the warranty runs out. i mean i had a few problems like axle clicking and front camber wear that was actually aligned. way out of alignment.
but the motor and tranny have been very reliable. just the mass airflow sensor acting up but i cleaned it with a spray cleaner that leaves no residue. actually my buddy at work told me he learned that trick on a ford mustang forum. yeah he has a mustang but his trick worked.
as soon as this ac gets fixed and the dealer replaces my wheels cause they ruined them with degreaser( all i have to do is make an appointment) i will be set.
so lastly any one have problems with there ac and what was the fix if so.
i could swear i heard a buzzing sound from the ac compressor as i was driving but when i parked...... well you read it above.
any feed back would greatly be appreciated.
