Default 2006 S80 Air Conditioning Questions...

Greetings all,

I've got this 5 cyl, turbo s80 and the air conditioning has begun to "act up" on me. Sometimes it cools, other times it blows warm air. I took it in to be recharged and the mechanic said I was a little low and it showed no leaks. My neighbor, who owned a auto shop for 30 years, seems to think it could be the pressure switch or the expansion valve. I've been looking all over the engine compartment and haven't been able to locate either. Any help identifying where these components might be and how to replace them would be greatly appreciated. One thing I have noticed is that the compressor "kicks in" when first starting up, but after a minute or so it begins to start/stop every several seconds. TIA folks.

Well, wouldn't you know it...the shop overcharged my system. I vented some of the freon and it works great now.

Well, I was premature. It's back to cycling off and on. Dammit!
