a/c causing Motor temp to go up alot
Quick ? for anyone. I have a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 4.7. the problem I am having is this. When the temperature outside is above 80 and i run the a/c the motor Temp starts jumping up at 10 degrees. I turn off the a/c and it goes back down. I had been hearing some squealing from the front and sounded like a bearing but couldn't tell exactly where it was coming from. The a/c does cool things off and I am not losing refrigerant rapidly that I can tell of.
I am thinking something is going on with the compressor because of the heating up of the motor when the a/c is on but I wanted to get someone opinion. The normal temp. that it is running at is around 209 degrees but I do tow a 6x10 enclosed trailer at times which jump the temp by a couple degrees already.
Right now I am in Florida and will be moving to Texas so the a/c is something I will be using. But when the temp starts getting up to 220 or 225 degrees It needs to be turned off.
