AC issues 95 mercury villager


Meh. Was driving to work tuesday and the temp gauge was heading to hot. Pulled over, parked it for 15 minutes and drove.the rest of the way with ac off and temp gauge stayed normal. Turned on ac and gauge started to climb. Fan was on. When it cooled down completely i put in a half gallon of antifreeze. Van temp stays normal with ac off. Oh well.

Sounds like lack of air flow through the radiator. Look between the radiator and a/c condenser for debri could be restricted back flush it out with a garden hose.

Have you verified that the electric fan(s) are working? Does it have a condenser fan?

Fan comes on. I looked at the condenser in the parking garage and it dinged up pretty good. I'll hose it down this weekend. Temp gauge stays normal with ac off.

sounds like you might have a "too much banged up" condenser. You know, they sell 'combs" for that. But I just used a fine knife blade to straighten mine out years ago- dont need a fancy comb- just patience, good opera music, and a fan blowing......LOL
