I had it vacuumed and charged to specs by an ac specialist. He claims the compressor is bad but why will it work while revved up. Essentially I’m melting at stop lights. Any ideas?

Have you checked to see if your fans are working properly?

I have a 2002 and had a issue with the internal pressure valve failing; check out this video, describing this problem. NOTE: i was able to do the valve repair WITHOUT, removing the compressor and everything worked out for me.


I did this repair and it fixed mine.

Another common issue to check; is the blend door bushing, breaks and it causes it to stick.


Those, would be good to check; a set of pressure gauges, can help diagnose the problem and many auto parts stores, will rent you a set for free. After, 22 years, the compressor, could be toast but it could be the internal valve or the blend door bushing as well.
