AC on my 1998 Voyager does not work. It starts to push could air, but belt starts to slip. What is wrong ?
I had the van at a specialty shop, they tried to fix it. A new compressor was installed, same result, after a minute or so the belt started to slip and burn, it feels there is something blocking something.
That sounds like the head pressures are way too high, things that can cause that are, restriction in the dryer, condenser, and sometimes the evaporator, doesn't shop like much of a speciality shop if they didn't follow through with pressure tests before letting you have the vehicle back. Look for bug and dirt blocking the air flow in front of the vehicles cooling system, make sure the cooling fans turn on when the A/C is turned on, those two can make a big differance in head pressures.
Hope you found your problem, thanks for the points.
Thanks for your answer, and sorry for my late reply. Your answer may be correct, I have a hard time following up on it as I don't really understand it. The shop says they tried all they knew. I have a bad feeling about this vehicles electronics as I had problems with the wipers. Took it to a Chrysler shop, I was told it is the computer, cost $1000, I said no way. I later got it fixed. I will try to follow your answer about the AC. Aarno
