1997 Ford escort NOT BLOWING COLD AIR?

08-03-2011, 12:02 PM
Hello I am trying to figure out why my AC is not blowing cold air on my Escort. When you turn on the ac the compressor comes on for a second and then it goes off and it just repeats this, also whenever the compressor is on the belt and AC lines shake pretty bad. I have a gauge that goes on the low side port and it shows that the system is full and the pressure increases when the compressor cuts off and it decrease slowly when it cuts back on. If anybody knows any information about this or the steps to take to fix this problem it would be greatly appreciated.

How much psi does it read when it cuts off?
You might have too much 134a in the system.

When the compressor cuts off the psi is around 150 according to my gauge and with it on it reads about 110. Also I have never charged it with anything and it has worked fine for the 2 years that I've had it.
