I have a 1998 Subaru the A C is not working I put in a new ac dryer and put refrigerate in and it is still not cooling and the compressor went up to 500 and I had to drain it off could my compressor be bad what do you think could be the problem? It is a impreza outback 2.2 engine.
Did you evacuate the system before putting the correct charge into the system? How much of a charge did you put into the system?
I would need to know what the low side pressure is when the high side reaches 500 PSI.
Are the cooling fans working when the A/C is turned on?
I would need to know the answers to these questions before I can go further.
Get back to me when you can.
