Engine Size: 1.6
Country of Origin: United States
I am completing the restoration of my 1989 Suzuki Sidekick 2-door convertible. It has manual steering and manual 4x4 with a 1.6-liter 8-valve engine. It does not have A/C. I believe that the "Complete After-Market AC System (AMA14404-9104)" is appropriate for my vehicle.
(1) Does the AMA14404-9104 kit support the R-1234yf refrigerant?
(2) I am relocating from Colorado to Alexandria, Virginia (near DC). Are there any A/C installers that you trust to install your kits in Colorado or the DC area?
Our systems are designed for the R134a refrigerant.
Email us a zip code and I'll check.
At least one Chinese factory was quite good at making something similar to R-1234yf and including it as a bonus in tanks of "R-134a". So it can't be that expensive to make.
It caused a bunch of problems. The whole idea with 1234yf is that it is unsaturated, thus it is prone to engage in chemical reactions. This is good when it is released into the atmosphere as it breaks down instead of hanging around as a "greenhouse gas". It is bad when you want it to go around and around in your A/C system for years and years.

One of the ordering questions asks whether or not there is an "Air/Smog Device" on my car. How do I determine that?
That would be the A.I.R. pump or "smog pump" installed on some vehicles.
Mostly that was a California thing. Cars delivered in that state had extra equipment to meet the smog laws there. In this case that would have been a belt driven pump.
Take a couple of engine bay photos & post them if you are not sure.
