I hosed down the condenser in my car today to see if it improves my ac
What I realized is that the water didn't dry on some certain spots like the rest of the condenser. The top and the sides were still soaking wet while the rest of the condenser had dried up.
Could this be evidence of an internally clogged condenser?
I figured since those parts weren't dry it meant that they weren't getting as hot as the other parts, meaning hot liquid/gas was not flowing through them.
I also noticed that my low side gauge went down from around 55psi on idle rpm (600-800) down to about 45psi and the cooling at idle improved.
I am trying to solve a problem of low cooling at idle and I'm thinking the compressor is weak now or maybe the expansion valve is stuck open from my research, but this condenser hose down today is leading me to believe I also have a condenser problem or maybe it's my only problem who knows.
Do you guys think that the condenser is clogged? Thanks for the help
