Icing up 2

jaym on Sun July 05, 2009 2:48 PM User is offline

Year: 2005
Make: Saturn
Model: VUE
Engine Size: 4 cyl
Refrigerant Type: 134a
Ambient Temp: N/A
Pressure Low: N/A
Pressure High: N/A
Country of Origin: United States

In a recent post (icing up) , "B" responded with a recommendation regarding insufficient grease (heat transfer?) between the TXV and the sensor on an evaporator core. Does anyone know what type grease behind sensor is recommended, where to purchase it, and can it be obtained locally? I did not plan on replacing the sensor or TXV valve.

thx in advance for replies....

If you don't find anything else ,,you might look at the Artic Silver they they use between the computer processors and their heatsink ,most any computer or electronics shop probably has something,,,

Good Luck

Heat transfer grease or dielectric grease from any car parts store -- it is used under ignition modules for example to transfer heat out of the module. A name like "silver" suggests it might contain metal particles, you don't want that because it could short out the wires on the sensor.
