AC Takes Sweet Time to get Cold in Volvo XC90

Let’s talk about the AC in Volvo XC90

Air Conditioning Volvo XC90“My AC now takes a little bit to get cold when I turn it on. It never used to do that. I have checked freon level at the low pressure port and it tells me the level is at its max. What else could be causing the air to take some time to get cold?”

Bonus! More About The Volvo XC90

The Volvo XC90 is a full-size luxury crossover SUV manufactured and marketed by Volvo Cars since 2002 and now in its second generation.

The first generation was introduced at the 2002 North American International Auto Show and used the Volvo P2 platform shared with the first generation Volvo S80 and other large Volvo cars. It was manufactured at Volvo’s Torslandaverken. Volvo moved production equipment of the first generation to China and ended Swedish production at the end of 2014, renaming the car as the Volvo XC Classic (or Volvo XC90 Classic).

At the end of 2014, the second generation XC90 was introduced. It is based on a new global platform, the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA). Both generations of the XC90 have won Motor Trend‘s SUV of the Year award in their debuts.

Did You Know?
In 1911, founders Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larson registered Volvo as a trademark for ball bearings – Volvo means ‘I roll’ in Latin. When Gabrielsson and Larson moved into car manufacturing, they chose the ancient chemical symbol for iron as a logo to symbolise the strength and power of a Volvo.

Could be the wrong amount of freon in the system. More info is required to diagnose the problem.

With engine at idle, and A/C turned onto max cool (fan can be on low circulation)… Answer the following:

Ambient Temp? High Pressure Reading? Low Pressure Reading? Compressor Cycling? How long on (compressing) and how long off?
