Default Air Conditioning not working.

A/C was serviced last year. 2017. Was working great until a couple of weeks ago. Started slowly being picky about turning everything on when I would call for air conditioning. Fan motor would hesitate for 10 seconds or so and then start. Progressively got worse on start time. Sometimes would start right away and cool. Now no cool and intermittent fan run. Maybe 30 percent of the time the fan will run otherwise nothing. No fan, no cool. Nothing jumping out at me in the engine compartment. Start with pressure switch. I have the 3.0 V6 with 145,000 miles on the truck. 2nd owner. I'm mechanical but A/C makes my brain hurt.

Default Re: Air Conditioning not working.

I'm nearly 50 years in the HVAC business and now retired, my first guess is you have a bad fan motor IE resistor,

If it's any consolation, every time the AC is fixed in my truck, it springs another leak! Replacing everything but the compressor and even that if necessary, but it's pumping which is a good thing.
we did the evaporator, condenser leaks, high side poppet schrader valve leaks,
Just got a delivery from RockAuto
