That's a good price! I remember the old A6 very well, at one time they were bullet proof. :D

Re: Head seems low on 98 GMC

Thanks for everyone's help, stuck a new pump on last night "when it was below 90°in Houston" and all seems well now, at idle I'm getting about 47°vent temps, I can live with that. Learn something new here about the reed valves. In my business, most every mfg. has gone to the scroll compres...

Re: Head seems low on 98 GMC

Does compressor turn very easily, like with one finger? Are there little "catches" as you rotate cmpressor? Are there stainless steel chips in the orifce tube? If all are true- the your compressor has imploded suction reeds on one or more pistons.. and is trashed....just one way to recogn...

Head seems low on 98 GMC

System cools ok, but I have seen a decline in vent temps over the past summer. It has the HT6, the suction is around 40 and the head around 180 which seems to low to me, can something happen inside these compressors to where they don't pump correctly? I've recovered the charge, pulled a good vacuum ...

Re: Stop leak damage, truth or not?

Personally, I would never use any stop leak in any customers system. This becomes the issue, when, not if, you go to change out your system at some point to the new 410A refrigerant, you will have that mess in your copper line-set. A service tech can usually tell if this stuff has been injected into...

Re: MT1416- Santech R134A BRASS MANIFOLD GAUGE SET W/ 72" HOSES

Wish I could use my new Fieldpiece Smans3 digital to do auto ac service, but they use the same fittings as R-22-R410A and R-12 I guess they have adapters. They do like 45 different refrigerants, 134A is a popular refrigerant in our line of work.

Re: 71 Chevrolet C/10-Pressures good / air only cool?
