    Default ac issue help after replacing pipes

    aoa guys, i have vitz 06, 1.3

    its ac is super awesome until last september when due to hot whether one of the ac pipes got leaked, i went to good mechanic, he replaced the pipe, refilled gas and everything perfect, previously the ac was so chilling that with fully loaded cabin, i would need to turn off occasionaly due to extreme cold in july august, i used to limit it to 1.

    after replacing the pipe and refill the situation has changed, its not the same chilling any more, i checked following twice,

    1. gas
    2. condensor, washed, cleaned
    3. heat and cold knob and its wire under steering controls
    4. thermostate is perfect

    everything is perfect but the cooling is now reduced to 80 % and even on 3, it does not cool that much. the mech said everything is ok, what can be the issue, the cooling pipes under hood are chilling, but inside its not.

    what can be the issue.

    thanks,

    Dont know abubakr but straight away check the cooling evaporator inside the dash board may be its fins are dirty due to bad cabin filter. And also hook up an temperature sensor to detect on how much temp the compressor cutts offf..... may be the A/C cutts off to soon

    ok now i have went to lots of ac mechanics to check what they suggest, mostly in rawalpindi, eartern car ac, western car cool and many others, this is what most of them say

    in the day time, high flow pressure reaches to 40 or above due to which cooling becomes low and in the evening this pressures comes below and cooling gets better. They say the high flow pressure should be at 20 in day time as well. and yes in evenings cooling is great and in morning its nominal cold air. They are suggesting full service of ac system costing around 5500.

    i had replaced filter under dashboard as well.

    any expert opinion please.

    thanks,

    Gas pressure needs to be checked using recommended instruments, also system to be checked for any leakages.

    Yes exactly. The quality of the gas is not original.
    The summer season is highest peak season for AC technicians to make money. And most easy way is, fill low grade quality gas in the AC. And hence customer keep coming back to them and slowly they start attacking their pockets.

    If everything is OK in your car system, then it seems fill gas quality is not upto mark.
    you should better go at some reputed AC shop and get it re-filled with recommended gas only.
    There will be sticker on your car (on at near to radiator) where company had advised the recommended gas for AC. Check it and fill the same.
