Refrigerant Type: R12
Can anyone tell me if AC Delco part 15-5772 expansion valve is for R-12 or R-134a refrigerant? Or does it matter? The car originally came with R-12 (86 Toyota Celica) but I know that some replacement TXV's are for 134a. Is there a difference? Omega TXV part #31-12101 for this vehicle shown on the Omega PDF lists that it is for 134a in fine print. The vehicle search feature on Omega's site then lists 31-10006 that does not list a refrigerant type.
What's the link to the PDF?
Those links are getting pretty old. I may need to kill them in the near future. If you need a valve go with he one listed on the website. They are supposed to be compatible with both R12 and R134a.
There is enough range in price for the expansion valve for this car: $146 down to $14. AC Delco lists TWO part #'s for the same car: #155772 lsells for $28, part #1550013 sells for $147 (both AC Delco and they look identical) and Four Seasons part #38616 sells for $17 on RockAuto.com. Omega part #31-12101 sells for $13 on ACkits website. $13? They should give hem away. Why is AC Delco selling two part #'s with such wide range of cost and they look alike? Any difference in quality among all of these different parts that are supposed to be for the same car? Toyota wants $50 for it. Who makes the OEM part?
31-12101 sells for $ 11.12 plus freight on our site.
So my question - what is the differences in these various parts that range in price from $11.12 to $146.00??? Any differences in quality among all of these? Why would AC Delco show two part #'s - one for $17 and the other for a whopping $146?
??? any opinions ???
