so I put my old compressor back in with a new rcv valve and it appears to be pumping again. I say it is working because with this truck you can actually feel the loss of power with a working a/c. So these are my new readings, with a brand new 1.75lb charge. Does this sound like it could be a clogged orifice tube? Does this sound like a bad condensor?
Also I am going to go ahead an replace everything I think if the compressor detonated as I want to fix this and have it last another few years like the oem. So I am looking at ackits so I can throw back some support. I like the price on the rebuilt compressor but I don't want to buy a pos china quality like I did last time. Are the rebuilt units quality or is the only way to get quality to buy the oem? Also where can I get new lines as I don't see them listed for my truck. thanks alot!
Can I get away with not buying everything new? Is there a cheap diy method to flush? I have compressed air and i could buy a flush gun from master cool
It looks like that compressor is no good. With a clogged orifice tube, the low side would be about 25. But why not just pull the tube and check it, or replace it?
Also you have the remains of 3 dead compressors in your condenser, replace it.
Keep everything in one thread for easier reference.

Our remans are done in Fl.
thanks! and sorry i thought no one was reading the other thread and I have a sense of urgency as I will need to order parts soon, wanted to do it today to have them by the weekend but still not sure. So by saying the reman is done in florida you are saying they are not good by omission or you are just saying they are not chinese? I just want to know if I can rely on one or are they like chain store stuff where they dont really do anything to remans and just make them work. Also can I get away without buying an evaporator or is that something I should replace also? Thanks alot!
Our remans have proved to be some of the best in the industry in my opinion. Could you have an issue, sure it is a mechanical device. But I can guarantee you most of the time it more a installer related issue than a product. We would not offer a product we thought was junk. I don't agree china products in nature are all bad. I can show some US stuff that is junk but I'm not here to get in the US/China debate. People are going to think what they want from whatever source they believe. Just remember not all suppliers are the same.
Oh ok well I have 2 dead chinese compressors that did not last, but they are from maybe a different supplier than you. So would I be better off with a china compressor or a reman? Glad to hear you have quality parts, can I flush the evap core or should I buy that also, and what about the lines
1)reman or chinese
3)Where to get new lines or can I flush them as well?
It's hard to say, I have no issue with either. But why are you on # 4 when concerning compressors. Seems like a lot for just 7 years of use. Could there be something causing these failures? If you have the proper equipment and follow the procedure Hecat has so kindly provided. I think you can flush an evap core without any problems. As for the condenser, might just be best to replace at this point. Manifold hose set is available for this vehicle
im on number 4(3rd from you plus factory) because my original did not self distruct the rcv valve just quit working. Then I ordered a new chinese compressor I was told would be perfect for me and a new drier(in hindsight shoulda just ordered an rcv valve). The replacement compressor he sent showed a bouncing high side and when I called the dude said that was normal with chinese compressors so I shrugged it off. That compressor only lasted a couple of months... or maybe even weeks I drive 6-9 hours everydday. Anyway so he sent me a replacement but the first one detonated and he told me not to flush anything again just to open it real quick and put in the new compressor. I did not know there was black death floating around until the oil evaporated that I pulled out of the bad compressor a couple days earlier. So I believe the black death eventually took out this second compressor but I don't know... so I think all my problems rise from that first compressor that jack*ss told me was normal.
sorry I wrote that wrong, my third compressor will be from you I have not bought anything yet. So I should be ok to flush the evap and lines that arent the manifold lines. Then buy a new condensor, o-tube, o-rings, crush washers, pag 150, manifold lines with muffler(do they come without one?), drier, and a new compressor... chinese or reman would you recommend? Or should I just call?
The reason I don't prefer to call is I have a 3 year old always talking to me and I work nights so I sleep till 2 my time, then I am up till about 6 am so the internet is just easier for me.
Is it just plain stupid not to pay for an oem or is it ok to get a chinese or reman? I am in debt payoff mode so the cheapest I can go definetaly the better, the truck has 130 on it so as long as a compressor last another 60 or so I will be stoked. Thanks alot!!!!
edit: oh also link to lines I can't find them under my truck from the website. thanks!

Again I have had very little issue with the china stuff form our supplier. I can also get a Compressor Works V7 at a good price but since Ice is goofing off not sure if it's an import or not. But your repair plan seems sound to me after all this trouble you have had. In my book you need to start with a clean system!
