Well I got my AC hooked back up just in time for the end of summer. The previous owner had replaced the power steeering pump and placed the wrong one on the car. The AC blows cold buts turns HOT under acceleration. Once you reach a steady speed it turns cold again. Is this caused by low freon?

Thanks

Check for a vacuum leak at the two vacuum hoses coming out of the pass side firewall. One supplies vacuum to the control panel , the other is from the control panel to the heater control valve.

Yes, vacuum lines. Check the line that goes from the round thing on the firewall to the top of the intake manifold behind the carb. It seems to be the most common problem.
