Need Ford/Lincoln/Mercury Info

rdhack on Mon May 19, 2008 8:29 AM User is offline

Year: 1994
Make: Lincoln
Model: Continental
Engine Size: 3.8L
Refrigerant Type: 134a
Ambient Temp: N/A
Pressure Low: N/A
Pressure High: N/A
Country of Origin: United States

With help from this site and parts from ACkits I have become very proficient with GM A/C systems, rebuilding 2 complete systems.

Now a friend of mine wants me to help him rebuild his 1994 Lincoln 3.8L with 134a. This system has been open for several years as the engine has been removed. I can tell by looking that Ford sysytems are completely different from GM.

I need as much info as possible on Ford systems especially pertaining to hose/line/coupling removal and installation.

His system will be flushed, new dryer and orifice tube will be installed and some new lines/hoses. He already has a new compressor.

Any information or direction where to find information will be greatly appreciated. I have already looked at some of the parts on

Thanks in advance!

If you have specific questions I sure one of us will try and answer them. Many general topics are covered in the tips section of this site. Also might consider the AllData subscription. It's really a fair price considering all the information they provide per vehicle.


When considering your next auto A/C purchase, please consider the site that supports you:

Thanks Tim,

For starters, How do the lines come apart? I have noticed that ackits accumulator/dryers have short lines whereas other parts stores have the accumulator with the line attached that goes all the way to the condenser. What's up with that?
