Is your truck not blowing cold air, alerting that you may need truck air conditioning repair? There is not a clear answer as to why your truck is not blowing cold air until it is inspected by a mechanic. Repairing the AC could be as simple as recharging the air conditioning refrigerant or repairing a simple refrigerant leak but it may be more complicated with many leaks, a problem with the electrical climate control or problem with the condenser or other components.
The air conditioning system has several components: compressor, condenser, receiver dryer, evaporator, and lines/hoses. If your truck air conditioning is not working, it should be inspected by a mechanic to determine the reason for the lack of cold air.
In the case of this truck, it was not blowing cold air and came in for AC diagnostics in Rochester, MN. Our mechanic at Babcock Auto Care found that the clutch within the compressor was not working. The fix for this vehicle is compressor replacement.
The cost of air compressor replacement varies greatly depending on many factors. It depends on the make/model, how much work is involved in the replacement as some compressors are more difficult to replace than others. Then there are other parts, besides the compressor that may need to be replaced for warranty purposes and a refrigerant refill cost. Call today for an air conditioning diagnostic service.
