Actually same use, just a new application....
Local mom and pop shop calls- says they have a 98 Suburban with a rear line leak. I get it- the entire 3/8 line is broken off at the connector to the rear evap- Wow I say--never seen that.. anyway, the connector is seized (our friend galvanic corrosion raises its ugly head again)....so I pull out as much of 3/8 line from evap as possible- and notice that both lines before and after the connector are 3/8 aluminum....so why not? I cut both connectors off and merely use a swagelok to mate the two 3/8 lines together....what a fast and simple fix! I saved them the price of a jumper line to evap (which usually is not sold seperately btw) and the price of a new rear line set--total cost probably well over $500 in any other shop. I'll let them have it for $100.....made my day!
The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......
