Finally something car related. (Getting Kinja'd trying to post this)

So on a whim I decided to take the Stringbean out on a lovely 100* (Freedom Unit (37.78 Colonizer Units)). Well that A/C felt wonderful for about 5 minutes until I started getting hot air blown at me. The engine load is terrible when the A/C is on so I knew something was up. Fuses and relays checked, no CEL. Ok maybe my charge is low. Hooked up one of these jammers after letting it warm up

and we have normal pressure. Hmmmm. Decided to give it a little love since it was a bit low on the “fill” section. Mind you the whole time I’m troubleshooting it it’s blowing cold air. I did read that these low pressure transducers (low pressure switch) go bad. Here’s mine, coated in oil, dirt, schmoo and probably coolant.

I’m thinking I’ll give the electrical side of it a cleaning and if need be replace the sensor portion itself. Question is: in Chrysler’s magnificent knowledge make it a serviceable part without recovering the refrigerant? I’m not sure. This guy says yes and does it

Either way I cant do much at the moment since the header shield is plenty toasty at the moment.
