Re: '83 urQ problems

Richard Funnell asks;

>4-      The air conditioner seems not quite cool enough.  The shop says the
expansion valve isn't right but this is an expensive job and I haven't
heard of these going bad before.  Any comments?<

Expansion valves wear with use.  If it does not have a fine enough orifice
it will not vaporize all of the coolant flowing through.  If it is clogged
it will not let enough coolant vapor through.  Since you have a new comp-
ressor the expansion valve is the next logical place to check out.
