AC test I conducted - I am pleased with the resuts
Well I conducted a simple AC test to check out the temp flowing from the vents.
Outside Temptemp: 106degrees (it was 112 earlier)
Started the car, Climate Control set to 60 full auto.
As usual, the air starts flowing out the defrost and heater vents just as the 97 owners manual said it should (stupid Idea if you ask me)
I look at the thermometer stuk in the dash vent 110degrees.
Let the car warm up a few minutes (like it needs it in 106 temps)
Start my drive, within a mile the ac changes to the dash vents, thermometer starts dropping, 80degress.
driving town streets 40mph - temp drops to 60deg
enter onto freeway-speed now is 73mph - temp drops to 45 to 47deg
6miles later, exit, stopped waiting for traffic to clear - temp rises to 54deg
driving on rural road - speed is 50mph - temp stays between 47-50
Road construction - speed drops to 25mph for next 3 miles - temp climbs to 58-60deg
construction ends - speed is now 45-50mph for 1 mile - temp drops to 50deg
turn in the driveway, end of test........
Temps are brutal in AZ for auto AC units.
I thought my system wasn't cold enough and now I think it is, during the day when the outside temps are 112 - 119 the AC seems never cold enough......
What are your opinions?
