Symptoms of a failing Receiver Drier
Air conditioning isn’t cold enough
When the receiver drier isn’t properly filtering the refrigerant, it can lead to blockages in the air conditioning system. When that happens, the air conditioning won’t function properly.
You might not mind this problem in December. But it becomes a pretty serious problem come June.
When in doubt, if your climate controls aren’t functioning as they should, it’s a good idea to get the car checked out. It could be a few different things, including the receiver drier.
A lot of different things can cause leaks in your car, so it’s not always easy to find the culprit. But one of those things is a busted receiver drier, which will leak refrigerant.
When in doubt, just know that a leak is a bad thing, and should be addressed. You may also notice the leaking under the hood.
