Re: AC accumulator draining too fast, high hi side

Hitting the HPCO is a Condenser problem.

You say the fans are on 100%. Does it do the same thing when driving down the road above 40 mph?

What is the history of the vehicle? New to you?

Re: 2014 Land Cruiser AC Problem

Start by checking & adjusting the compressor clutch gap. It is the most likely culprit, and adjusting one with 3 years of wear is never a bad thing. With the engine cold, use a feeler gauge to check the gap. Anything over .025 inches is not good. Don't have a feeler gauge? Use a few business car...

Re: AC low side over 100#

121 is a typo. He meant to say R12.

Are the handwheels on the gauge set closed while making your measurements?

Re: A/C Troubleshooting Situation

Dead scroll compressor. It is shedding debris in to the condenser. Probably low on charge, but it is done. You can add a few ounces of refrigerant & re-test, but I suspect you will see the pressures remain the same. The condenser is the primary system filter. Since it is 7+ years old I would rep...

Re: 2012 Ford Escape AC Troubleshoot

Did you pull a vacuum after you put the system back together?

How much oil did you add to the system?

Re: Help with new AC system 1984 El Camino

What port did you charge the refrigerant through?

Did you charge as a liquid or a gas?

The oil charge will not block the orifice tube.

How does the compressor feel when you turn it by hand now?

Re: 134a back to R12?

If the VIR was not serviced, the system was not flushed. It is not possible to flush through a VIR The desiccant bag in the VIR is part of the service - so if the VIR looks "untouched" - it has a 40+ year old desiccant bag that is not 134a compatible inside of it... The system also still h...
