Lsnaple Posted June 2, 2018 Share Posted June 2, 2018 2005 Legacy GT Limited 5eat, 183k miles Swapped to auto tension belt when my other idler decided it didn't want to be in one piece anymore. I like to troubleshoot so I can gain knowledge, and will go to an AC repair place when I either can't figure it out or when I need to vacuum and recharge, unless I end up buying the tools for it. So my AC does not quite blow as cold as it used to, and it only kind of feels like a fan now with a slight cool temp to it. I guess I noticed it starting to get weaker since mid-end of last summer. What I've checked: - Compressor does kick on. - Fan kicks on. - Belt is in good shape. - High pressure line is hot. - Cold pressure line is slightly cool, but definitely not cold and condensation isn't built up. - Could possibly get slightly cooler during longer highway drives. Doesn't appear to be much blockage in the condenser, but I'm going to rinse it in the morning. Should the next step after rinsing the condenser be getting gauges and checking pressure on both sides? With the compressor still kicking on, could it be a very small leak, or would you expect that there may be a blockage of some sort? Thanks!
