Hi guys,

I have a '99GT, when I got my lower intake Gasket replaced my A/C Does not blow cold anymore... the AC light comes on, but no cold air. This happened to my friends GP as well after the replacing the lower intake, but he sold it before the problem was diagnosed. Is their a relation?

Does those recharge kits work well?

-Also my engine temp runs up to ~220-230 when in slow traffic/idle, this didnt happen before the gasket change, I've read through some of the postings could this be air pocket in the cooling system?

When they replaced the LIM did they remove the AC lines? Could just need to refill the system. Yes the cans work well, but not realy on an empty system. We uses the gallons of it for those types.

U might have air, there is a valve on one of the lines on the top of the engine. Start it up, get it hot, turn the heat on high full blast then open the valve. If there is ne air it will come up. If not give this upper line off the radiator a squeeze, while doing that.
