Strange pressures and little cooling after retrofit - what components to check?
All original components except new receiver/dryer.
System was open for several years
System flushed and blown out
Compressor flushed with DEC PAG, compressor pumped oil when turned over
POA adjusted to 26 psi
System held test pressure for two days and vacuum for two days
Manufacturer's literature calls for 4.25 lbs of R12.
Charged one 12 oz can at a time until 60 oz added.
Jumped compressor clutch to get compressor to run
High side pressure never came up beyond 70 psi and only reads 50 psi with current charge
Lowest vent temp was 56-57 degrees
Suspect expansion valve may be plugged?
Please advise on troubleshooting procedure.
Is the high side handwheel closed? To check the TXV, remove the bulb and hold it in your hand. The Place it in ice water bath. You should see the TXV open and close.
Go to the proceedure section and follow the testing of Chrysler ERP systems. Basically the POA and EPR do the same thing. There is a section on testing the TXV
