Chevy Tahoe A/C

brielly on Tue June 08, 2010 11:20 PM User is offline

Year: 2000
Make: chevy
Model: tahoe
Engine Size: 5.7
Refrigerant Type: r134
Country of Origin: United States

The rear ac lines on my tahoe are leaking and I need to fix it cheaply. I found a kit that caps off the rear lines which I'm planning to install myself. The compressor was also a bit noisy and may be leaking as well so I want to replace it with a sanden and then of course do the orifice tube and receiver/drier as well. My question is what is the sequence of this repair. Do I need to have a shop evacuate it or has the leak pretty much done that for me? I'm guessing the system needs to be flushed and vacuumed before installing the r134. Does his get done after I install the new parts. Any help would be appreciated as its getting hot out and this is my daily driver.

You can install this kit that you speak of your self as well as the rest of the parts. It would be best to have the evaporator flushed prior to installing any new parts. The condenser will also need to be changed unless you get the Hecat Hecat flush equipment to do it correctly. Here is a link for Flushing. Hope this helps and good luck.
