Having problems with your Ford Freestar ?
We bought this van and it had been sitting for a year. everything checked out ok but the air conditioner will not put out cold air.
does the van sitting that long affect the performance of the air conditioner?
The coolant used in ACs has very small molecules and no system remains tight enough to prevent loss. You probably only need to recharge it if it has not been opened.\012You can buy a kit with pressure gauge, coolant, connection hoses and instructions for <$25 US in auto parts stores. Make sure though that your system uses R134 coolant (especially if it is older) otherwise you may need a conversion kit to install first.
