what would cause such low pressure on the low side?
I know it has a low charge but looked lower than i have ever seen one.
Wait a few days, weeks, months and it will go even lower---as you loose refrigerant it will eventually go to zero or even vacuum-- you obviously have a leak- that needs to be found, fixed and recharged to factory spec.....my guess is you have about 1/4 of the necessary refrigerant in the system.....you don't want to run it in that condition for long- it will damage your compressor...
The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......
ok, cool. i didn't know it would go that low and let the compressor kick in!
I will check for leaks and repair as needed
I did not see any oil around fittings so I put some 134 with dye in the system till my gauges read 32 low 200 high. I will monitor for leaks. I have another question though. the low side on my gauges only slightly moves even if I disconnect the adapter. is this normal?
