A/C hoses in diesel trucks function using high and low pressures. The refrigerant originates at one side of the A/C system at low pressure and is converted to liquid using high pressure so that it can flow through the system. Both low and high-pressure sides of the system work together to keep refrigerant flowing so that the system can function properly. Your truck’s A/C hoses carry the refrigerant from the compressor outlet to the receiver so that it can be cooled and used to produce cold air for the cabin.
monitoring your a/c hose's condition
A/C hoses should be checked frequently for leaks and defects and replaced immediately if wear and tear is noticed. Since the A/C high-pressure hose carries high-pressure refrigerant, it is subject to high levels of stress when in use. Just like any other component in your diesel truck, it can fail and cause problems for the rest of the system. When the A/C high-pressure hose is beginning to have trouble, it will usually display a few symptoms that can alert the operator that it requires attention.
Signs of a failing A/C Hose
- Leaking around the hose
