I just had a new compressor and drier installed in my 98 e320. Air was great for the first few days. Then, drove 30 miles at 80mph and it was still great.

Parked for an hour - car a/c temp was not great driving 30-40mph for 10 minutes. Also was not great when I restarted it again an hour later with the same speeds.

I got back on the turnpike and it was ice cold again. Came home. Shut the car off and it was fine over and over again.

I ran the diagnostics - the refrigerant pressure was 21. Refrigerant temp was 125.

Is 21 adequate or should I have the shop check for a secondary leak?

PS

I also do not get ANY water under the car after running the a/c. My first benz but I've never had a car that didn't drip condensation on a 90 degree day under it!
