Jeep YJ with Stock A/C

jeepavi on Thu April 08, 2010 11:45 PM User is offline

Year: 1993
Make: Jeep
Model: Wrangler
Engine Size: 4.0
Refrigerant Type: R12
Country of Origin: United States


I have a Jeep YJ with a 4.0L engine, has the Stock A/C system that isn't working at the moment.

I was considering my options to be able to have A/C once again.

I've heard negative comments about the stock A/C and it's ability to cool. I was wondering if I should take this opportunity to convert to 134a, and if so, what parts I would need considering I have the Stock A/C available.

Or... Quite honestly, any other alternative to cool down in the summer.

Yes... I am thanking all those in advance that would recommend I take the top off. Point taken.

Thanks for your input.

I would see what your problem is first. If it is just a leaking hose or fitting, get it fixed and replace with R12. If the compressor is bad, then you can weigh your options with sticking with R12 or going with R134a. If you do retrofit you will need to replace the compressor, expansion valve, drier, add a pressure switch to the system and replace the factory condenser with a universal parallel flow unit as well as replacing the R12 fittings with R134a ones. But first I would recommend checking it out or getting it checked out professionally to see what the cause of the leak is.
