    Just picked up a cherry '12 6 banger for my 18-year-old, 9000 miles and it's like new. Has the musty A/C problem from condensate left to grow nasties. I found a youtube with a great procedure for filling the condenser box through the drain hose with disinfecting foam, but since there's no...
  2. 4.6L Tech
    Hello all! My compressor has black death and sounds terrible (I.E like keys being played with by a baby.) So, I was wondering if anyone had a clear way to just bypass it for a little while. I know I need a v6 pulley 6 rib (I believe tensioner correct?) and a 70.5 in belt. Does anyone basically...

    My 1999 Mustang GT had been idling rough, but when I turned the A/C on the idle would be smooth. So I figured I will clean the IAC and I might as well clean the throttle body at the same time. Went out, bought some throttle body cleaner and did the easy job after watching a couple of...

    Hi, Sorry for the long post, but here is the short version: What would be a normal On and Off A/C compressor cycling time at idle? Here is the longer version with the full story: I have a question about the A/C Cycling on my 2012 GT Premium. I recently noticed that the the compressor is...

    I have a 1966 with an original under dash evaporator on the AC system. I rebuilt the original Compressor and installed a new dryer, condenser, and expansion valve. I kept the original hoses including the original discharge hose. I vacuum checked the system and then filled it up with r134a...

    I have a 68 Fastback what I am restoring, and I want to install A/C on it. What would be the cheapest option for this. I'm looking at CJ Pony Parts, but the kit cost from $1000 to $1400. Anyone know a more cost effective way to do this? Is there another car I can pull the A/C unit out of that...
  7. SVT Cobra Tech
    Good morning everyone, I have a 2003 cobra svt that has been having A/C issues. I think I know the problem but I would appreciate some confirmation before I blow it up. Engine running, A/C on max and fan on high. Using the freon recharge kit gauge, low side pressure indicates ~50 psi...
  8. 4.6L Tech
    Hi, Im having trouble tracking down exactly what is going on. When I turn on the A/C I get just air blowing out that is not cold. I assume I need to recharge the freon. So I bought the usual stuff from Autozone and Popped my hood. I noticed what I think is my "Tensioner " seems to try to engage...

    I have a 1989 GT mostly stock 5speed I've put an electric fan on the car because of over heating issues, the car was working great but in the last few months it's starting to stall out and die on my when I'm coming to a stop... (Only when the ac is on) when coming to a stop if I do not let the...

    Car: 1996 GT Auto Mods: underdrive pulleys, CAI (recently installed, MAF positioned at 12 o'clock), PI intake manifold Scenarios: 1) A/C on and coming to a stop from moderate to high speed, car dies or RPMs drop dramatically. 2) A/C off at idle and then switched on, car dies or RPMs drop...

    I have a 2006 Mustang GT. The air flow through the vents has been erratic. Sometimes the air will blow through the vents and sometimes it doesn't. The temperature control works fine as it blows hot air or cold air depending on the setting. Once the fan kicks in, I will get the speed that it is...
  12. 2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Searched forum but could not find similar problem as what I'm having. Symptoms: Hot days, engine warm, temp gauge will drop to Cold and AC will shut off. PCM thinks engine temp is 253F and seems to go into limp mode. Sometimes gauge goes back to normal and AC will engage again. Independent...

    I just bought a used low pressure a/c line on ebay. Great deal ($25) especially when new run around $100. Anyways, I'm going to attempt to swap this out myself. I have a few questions. 1) Is this a driveway type job? Can I handle doing this myself? I'm no mechanic but I can do your basic...
  14. 2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    So recently I had to run my A/C and noticed that on the regular settings (not max A/C) that the air is not coming out as hard as it used to. Its still blowing fairly cold but if I have it on a 1 or 2 setting i can barely even feel it. I recently checked the pressure and refrigerant and it is...
  15. 5.0L Tech
    I have a 1968 mustang with a 302 from a '73 Gran Gorino in it. It was originally an inline 6 200. I thought I had an a/c for the car, but after I got it painted the guy sold it. :banghead: Not to mention, I just painted it black. So it's going to be a little warm this summer. So if any of you...

  17. Classic Tech
    I'm looking to purchase a 67 Cougar which we all know is the mustangs cousin and share alot of the same components. The seller has stated that the compressor works just needs some freon in it. However just to make sure how would I go on about checking the compressor to see if it actually does...
  18. V6 Tech
    The other day, the fan that blows AC and defrost air into the cabin stopped working. I can turn the fan switch to any position and get no response. When I turn on AC, vent or defrost, I can feel a wisp of cold or hot air if I put my hand right on the vents. It's not a fuse (checked it), and I...

    I don't know where to start on this one. I've had this Mustang for about two years (bought with 45K miles on it...now it has 59K) and up until now, I've only had one problem with it (y'all helped me fix that one). I know this may be long, but here are the problems: (1) Battery Drainage: For...
  20. 2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    It was a hot day yesterday, and I had the A/C on. I changed it to MAX A/C, and I hear this loud high pitched whistling noise that gets louder when I turn up the fan speed. It's never done this before, and it won't seem to stop. I've tried pushing all the different settings, and it only whistles...
