Just replaced the compressor on my son's Ford Taurus due to the clutch bearing going out. Evacuated and recharged. All appears good, good temps 42 degrees. I noticed both lines on the receiver drier were frosty. Is this a good thing or a bad thing. I thought I read that a frosted line could mean a restriction somewhere. Please put my mind at ease, LOL. Thanks for any feedback.
How much refrigerant was added. Was system pulled into a vacuum before charging?
I had the vacuum pump on it for several hours. I put three 12 oz. cans in. My book said it required 2.16 lbs. It seems to be working okay, I just never noticed those lines actually getting frost on them. This was while I was actually charging the system. I have not noticed if it happens under regular operation.
If you had the cycling switch jumped to charge (not recommended), it will get colder than normal.
I did have the switch jumped. Thanks for the info
