Re: '93 Silverado c1500 AC replacement

"Check the recirc door is functional. I see a lot of these trucks with bad actuators and/or broken shafts from hack job replacements." Yes, that one was bad. I have set it in the re-circ position til I feel like digging under the dash to replace the motor. I found a write up on line. I ru...

Re: Now I have a leak !!! 1998 Frontier

Your a/c inop is not due to your leak if you have intermittent cold air!! Two separate issues! The next time you have hot air blowing- tap on front of compressor clutch driver- see if it engages- if so you have the infamous wide air gap scenario...and we can expand on it later.. Monday afternoon, d...

Re: '93 Silverado c1500 AC replacement

Anything is better than an R4 compressor, but these seemed to be "better" in a single cab truck than in a dual-AC system.

Now I have a leak !!! 1998 Frontier

Well, Monday, returning to Phoenix 1pm, the AC stopped working in the Frontier, blower motor blew out hot air (projected to be 117F here today). About 10 minutes later cool air returned, then stopped again 10 minutes later, as I was approaching home. So far, all I've done is confirm that compressor ...

Re: V5 shaft seal leak

You could try cleaning that up, I figure it should be real smooth.

Re: How to properly drain a compressor?

Two ounces is a lot of leakage !!

Re: 02 Passat slow leak through evaporator. Dye question

And got to do this in the dark, or near dark. It sounds though like shop in the past, as well as current shop agree on the leak being evaporator.

I replaced the evaporator in my '88 Mazda truck 15 years ago, is somewhat a pain.

Re: 1978 corvette r134 conversion

Corvettes are a poor choice for conversions. Four seasons are a poor choice for parts. You're dead in the water before you begin. You will need to upgrade the condenser also. Better do your due diligence before a decision is made. If you're in USA, stay with R-12, will also be less expensive overal...

Re: cool AC only when idling, warms up when revving

Let me guess, since you failed to provide important information:

You have a vehicle correct? Ask the kid next door what year, what model, etc., and post that, might help someone actually help you.

Re: 95 Chevy G20

UV dye is fine to stay in the system, a good thing. Some manufacturers add it during the build.
