01 Volvo S60 A/C no condensate - compressor cuts off

Showing 4 out of 18 Posts | Show 14 Hidden Posts
Question From comnavguy on 01 Volvo S60 A/C no condensate - compressor cuts off

2001 Volvo 2.4T with 153,000 miles blows 40 degrees with Dallas temps 90 - 100 R.H. 50% to 60% until driven a few miles and then the compressor cuts off. Then I turn off all the A/C controls for few minutes and then turn the A/C back on and it blows ice again for another few miles.

Whether sitting still or rolling there is zero condensate coming from the car and there is no dampness on the carpets.

So far the A/C does not cut off if I sit in the car for 10 to 15 minutes idiling.

Response From Hammer Time

40 degrees is too cold. You probably have a bad cycling switch.

Response From comnavguy

Thanks, but it still doesn't make sense. I can sit in the car for a long time with the AC blowing ice UNTIL I start to drive it. Within a couple of blocks it quits. I haven't taken it on the highway to see if it re-starts itself, but I can stop the car, cut it off for a few minutes and upon restart, the AC is blowing cold again and will continue blowing cold until it starts to roll again.

And where is the cycling switch on this car? Please don't tell me it's in the compressor

And I still have zero condensation .

Response From Hammer Time

If it runs that cold without cycling, it will freeze the evaporator.
Turns out your uses a temp sensor in the evaporator. That should be cycling the compressor off if it gets too cold.

Response From comnavguy

OK. I just bought a new, accurate themometer. The temp at the center vent is 48.

I can let the car sit and idle for 20 to 30 minutes and it stays at 48 to 50 with the high side pressure steady at 250 PSI. The OLD book I have calls for Volvo pressures from 406 to 450 PSI, years 95 thru 99. I do not have year 2001.I

The minute I push the RPM above 2000, the compressor cuts off and will not start again until I turn the car off, let it sit for a few minutes and re-start.

I now suspect a defective high pressure switch but can not locate iit in the high line.

Can you tell me where that switch is located so I can replace it?

Response From Hammer Time

No way on the 450. That will just kill a compressor. Even your pressures are a bit on the high side.

Response From comnavguy

Exactly on the pressure, but that's what Haynes has in their manual (doorstop) for years up to 1999. In that same book, years earlier than 95, the highest pressure is 227. I've never seen any pressures on anything going to 400.

So, I still suspect the high pressure cut off switch is defective. I know it's in the high line, but it would be very helpful if you or someone could tell me where and save me from having to remove several shrouds to trace the line.

Response From Hammer Time

I think that they are telling you is the high pressure cutoff is in the 400s. I believe it uses one pressure sensor that reads all pressures and it looks like it's in the liquid line, behind the right front headlamp.

Response From comnavguy

That MUST be it. Volvo is the only car group in the Haynes manual with pressures that high, and only on vehicles from 95 to 99. I'll take the headlight out to see if the sensor is in that area. I hope.

Thanks for everything.

Response From Hammer Time

Just follow the line from the condenser.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Pay attention to HT - he knows what he's doing,

Tom

Response From comnavguy

I put HT in a class by himself. The best.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

No argument. Just think for a moment................. we are all volunteers and not paid here! NOT JUST AN AMERICAN SITE BUT GOD BLESS AMERICA. Happy fourth,

Tom

Response From comnavguy

It IS the clutch. Lots of troubleshooting and hair-pulling.

I tapped the clutch with a huge screwdriver and it engaged. Ran the RPM up and the clutch disengaged. Let he engine go back to idle, tapped the clutch again and it engaged.

NEW CLUTCH required.

Thanks guys/gals for all the suggestions and help.

I've never seen a clutch fail in this way. Live'n learn.

Response From Hammer Time

Make sure it's not just too much air gap. Sometimes you can move the plate closer and resolve that. It still needs to have clearance.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

3.5 to 4-5 ohms at clutch it''s - otherwise it's excessive clutch air gap as Hammer said,

Tom

Response From comnavguy Top Rated Answer

I think this guy is going to buy a new compressor, but can you tell me how to adjust the air gap on compressor clutches? Also, is the 3.5 to 4.5 Ohms the coil resistance?

We're on our 14th straight day of over 100. NEED cool.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

If you buy new with clutch (highly recommended) it should be all adjusted but check. Gap is usual in general .020 +/- and your are correct on ohms. Spin oil thru any replacement oil prior to installation, measure what comes out of old one and the condition of it. Follow any suggestions that come with compressor.

I did not re-read the whole thread so your call on if this is a compressor problem or not. Quick re-read of no condensate? Compressor may not be the issue. Go by pressures at the temps. See top post for CHARGING PROCEDURES may help,

Question From Derekjfarrington on Re: Renault Clio 2009 2.0 - Clutch Pedal Problem

In the Volvo truck world you're suppose to use a fancy mechanism that pumps the fluid from the slave up to the master. It prevents a finicky bleed process. the fancy mechanism is nothing more than a washer fluid lookin pump with a straw into the fluid container.

volvo cross country air conditioner mystery

Question From Guest on volvo cross country air conditioner mystery

The ac will work great suddenly stop and make no begin working again for weeks. When it's working it will literally freeze you. Last week, paid $205 at the repair shop. It worked great for 10 minutes. Returned it and it's been sitting there. They say they have to get an electrical map?? It just appears the compressor will either cut on or not at all. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

What year is thes? Does't matter too much now as it's at a shop. This could easily be some common ailments like clutch gap, faulty pressure switches. It would be designed to stop compressor if pressure or temp is too low on low side and too high on high side. Compressor clutch can have a large gap to fight to pull in and be erratic if at the limit.

Odd ball problems include your voltage regulator - just a slight undervoltage in the car the clutch coil won't pull it but may have spikes where enough power is there and be intermittent.

Across the board about 65% of A/C problems are low refrigerant and this can cool or did so this problem is in the other 35% of possiblile problems.

It's really in the shop's hands now...... If the are stumped tell us what they're stuck on - Ex: No power getting to clutch coil or something,

T

Response From Guest

Thank you so much. Yes, my car is in the shop however he says he's not sure if he can fix it. I'll run what you said by today. Thank you again.

05 Volvo S-60 no drive no reverse grinds going into Park

Showing 2 out of 10 Posts | Show 8 Hidden Posts
Question From comnavguy on 05 Volvo S-60 no drive no reverse grinds going into Park

2005 Volvo S-60 with 128.000 miles.

Driver parked at mall and upon returning the car would not move in Reverse nor Drive. When shifting from Reverse or Drive into Park, the noise sounds like the vehicle is moving when put into Park. Park does not hold the vehicle. It can be pushed forward or backwards in Park.

I've never heard one grind going into Park unless the car was moving.

Any suggestions will make me dance for joy.

Response From nickwarner Top Rated Answer

Park sprag is sheared offf which explains that noise. The no movement indicates a bad low/rev clutch pack which has finally popped and taken others with it. Its new trans time. So news on the price may make your dance skip a step or two, especially with this car.

Response From comnavguy

I kinda suspected the broken-off Park thingee, but was hoping for my friend better news RE total replacement or huge super cost re-build.

Is it likely that all these malfunctions happened simultaneously? Is it more likely that one set of problems has been ongoing and finaly the straw/camel happened?

From your knowledge, does this year/model Volvo have a history of tranny problems? I think it was '92-93 that Buick put a tranny intended for the V-6 into LeSabres and Park Aves with the 350 V-8 and they disintegrated at about 38,000 to 45,000 miles. Buick didn't do a recall but I think they paid towing and extended warranties for 50,000 "IF" the damaged party got insistent and talked with the BBB.

Thanks for the reply and let me know what else you know of this car/tranny.

Response From nickwarner

I don't deal much with the Euro stuff myself, as there isn't as much of a market for it in my area and they use a lot of specialty tools that are costly. Don't know if this is a common thing. The parking sprag I am referring to is inside the trans. I don't know how this guy drives it, if he beats it or anything so hard to say why the failure occured. Most cars I see where the park sprag shears is because someone put it into park while it was still moving. But what is certainly blown in it I can't say from where I sit. Thats a question for the trans guy who rebuilds it.

I would imagine your straw/ camel assumption is likely. Things don't usually fail completely like this without warning unless its a 90's model Caravan where they blew a fist-sized hole through the case because of a poorly designed diff.

I think you might've gotten bad info on the GM issue. LeSabre and Park Ave were front wheel drive since the late 80's and never could have a 350 in them, just a 3.8. The Buick Roadmaster was the rear wheel drive model that had a 350, same as the Caprice and even the Caddy Fleetwood.

Response From comnavguy

OK. Gimme a break. What am I supposed to be a great brain surgeon, mechanic AND mathematician? So I was a decade or so off. It was in 84 that Buick had the transmission issue, and I'm not even certain about that. It might have been 82.

Buick did make it right but only if the owner(s) made enough noise about the problem. They paid towing and replaced the trans with, I think, the 400-R4 trnsmission.

I keep shooting and eventually I hit the target. Once in awhile it's the bullseye.

Response From Discretesignals

You mean the 200-4R transmission?

Response From comnavguy

YES! I think it was the 200 R4 transmission.

As for the Volvo which started all this thread - the CV is OK. The owner had it towed back to his house and is going to sell the car as is. He said he hopes to run across someone who KNOWS and LOVES this model Volvo and who knows he can get it fixed inexpensively.

The "knows and loves" let me out.

Thanks for everything.

still sounds like a c/v issue ,check the 2 piece shaft striped splines could cause this problem.

Response From Discretesignals

Did you make sure you didn't have a broken CV axle?

Response From comnavguy

We have not checked to see if there is a broken CV. This break-down happened in a mall parking lot, and the security guy got involved. Until today, the car has not been up on a jack YET. I'm going to see if we can't check the CV tonight.

Thanks for that suggestion and reminder.

Question From carlosm347 on 2001 VOLVO S80 2.9

HOW TO CHANGE SHIFT SOLENOID HOW TO LOWER THE TRANSMISSION ON 2001 VOLVO S80 2.9 NON TURBO

Response From Discretesignals

Are you asking how to change the shift solenoid?

There are a lot of steps and warnings, so you really need to get hold of the service information procedures for lowering the transaxle to get access to the side cover. Your best bet is to try Alldata DIY.

Interesting, but it appears that Volvo is using a general motors 4T65E transmission?

Response From carlosm347

I TRY TO GO TO ALLDATADIY LIKE U TELL ME BUT THEY DONT HAVE THE VOLVO ON THE LIST, CAN U TELL ME ANOTHER PLACE SO I CAN GET THE INFORMATION FOR THAT CAR, I AM DOING IT MY SELF, I DONT WANT TO MAKE ANY MISTAKES. THANK U FOR YOUR HELP.

Response From Discretesignals

I'm surprised that Alldata DIY doesn't have Volvo in their list. You could try Mitchell1diy, but I am not sure how much service information they have for the transmission in your car. You should contact them and ask.

It really wouldn't hurt to have a transmission specialist diagnose the problem. Then if you decide you want to take on the fix, you could. It might require a high end scan tool to do some diagnostic tests and experience in troubleshooting that transmission. Worst case scenario is it may need a complete tear down and inspection to see what is going on. Are you ready for that?

Response From carlosm347

OF COURSE I AM READY I JUST WANT TO KNOW HOW TO LOWER DOWN STEP BY STEP TO DO EVERYTHING THE RIGHT WAY

Response From Discretesignals

I'm fairly certain that Mitchelldiy has the service information procedure and steps for lowering the transmission to remove the side cover.

Response From Hammer Time

I checked both sites and Alldatadiy is not listing any Volvos but Mitchelldiy does show this vehicle

Response From nickwarner

You also can buy factory service manuals from helm.com, but I will warn you that factory books are expensive. They may not even make a printed one for this, as Volvo has transitioned into an online service at their dealers. The employees at the dealers each have a login and the info comes directly from a secure site at Volvo headquarters. Even the semitrucks were like that ten years ago when I was working at a Mack and Volvo dealership.

Response From kensoncustom

first check connector as it is under battery and septible to corrosion check harness for varmit demage.
those little guys love wires. next drop lower pan check
for meterial in pan,and loose oil feed tubes.
side cover can be removed .remove axel shaft loosen sub frame lower trans to remove cover. its tight but can be done. i would sugest purchacing a solinoid kit.be sure to check internal harness for cracked wires

You really need to have that diagnosed before ripping into the transmission. Just because it has shift solenoid in the trouble code description doesn't mean the shift solenoid is the culprit. You could have:


- The hydraulic valve for solenoid S1 has stuck in the open or closed position
- Defective control system (the solenoid binds or is stuck)
- Internal leakage in the transmission
- Warn or damaged clutch driven plates in the transmission.


Default is 3rd and reverse, so it probably isn't stuck in first. You really need to have a transmission specialist check it out before you break it down. There is service information for this because I am looking right at it. You won't find this stuff in a Chilton's manual.
