    John, I see that you have helped many people with A/C issues on this forum and wanted to get your feedback on an issue I am having with my 2007 outback. I have a single zone manual A/C system. The system was replaced from the firewall forward last September.

    The A/C operates normally and blows cold on the passenger side (right hand center console vent, passenger side dash vent). On the driver's side, both vents blow ambient air (hot) until the engine RPMs reach 1800+, when the vents start blowing cold. Drop back to idle, and the air blows ambient again.

    I am truly stumped, as the volume of air flowing on the passenger and driver's side is the same so a blockage is unlikely. If it were an older Subaru, I would guess a vacuum based vent actuator was not being fully actuated and allowing outside air in. My understanding is that all actuators are now electric, not vacuum.

    Do you have any ideas of what this could be? Compressor tests normal, as does refrigerant levels.
