Do you have good airflow? Is the condenser fan working? Do you have any lines freezing? Did you evacuate, vacuum and recharge the system? The engine isn't overheating is it? Airflow is very important to a 134 system.

will keep my eye on this thread for future...just picked up an 05 Hemi recently....blows ice cold. I like the mentality, just sell it, go buy new, American dream. (sarcasm). IDB Racing or Ellis performance will save you lots of headaches and keep you from throwing parts at the actual problem instead of guessing.

Yes, good airflow, yes fans working, no lines are not freezing, engine does not over heat, yes I vacuum pumped and got one can of freon in and pegged both gauges. Also replaced orfice hose assembly.

Restricted condenser is my guess but I don't claim to be an ac guy. I know enough to get me trouble but trying to learn.

good to hear, I myself just finished putting pads & rotors all the way around (plus calipers in rear) after chasing a bad wobble when braking. Thought for sure it was front related, nope, rear caliper slide pin out of whack and caliper was sticking. that's what I get for assuming before tearing into the truck. System goes in first, then I'll worry about spark plugs. Priorities ya know. Good luck dude! I admire your desire to learn yourself, but AC is not my forte.

So your pressures are pegged out at an extremely high number in guessing? Like 350 on the high and 150 on the low?

Your low side is also called the suction side. Typically nothing is betweeen the compressor and the low side gauge fitting. If that is true, then the compressor isn't sucking the low side down and therefore not working. The compressor pushes the freon to the condensor. So that side is the high side. Nothing is going to make the low side high unless the compressor or clutch isn't working.

You seem to be describing a VERY common dodge truck problem. The condenser fan is most likely not working it is the smaller electric fan on the driver side. I have replaced no less than 100 of these shitty fan assemblies. If the ac is on it should be on. If not replace it, it's common to take fuse for it out too. The condenser has to come out to replace but it's pretty straight forward repair

Lack of airflow will cause the high side pressure to shoot through the roof. Also if it was a bad compressor he would have a low high side and a high low side. The condenser fan is on the left half of the truck. OP if you want to bring it by my place I can take a quick look at it. Won't be a problem.
