Ok, I have always hated snake oil but for some unknown reason I believe the claim on this stuff and introduced it into my a/c system this weekend...now my condenser is apparently clogged.
This 88 alfa has ano original Behr a/c that was r12 based. it was converted to 134a about 10 yrs ago..it has a leak...about 1/2 system charge leaks in 3 months or so.
After introducing the sealer then charging to full capacity per the instructions...it seemed to work ok but the next day, no cool air from the evaporator. Ican see some refrigerant flowing past the sight glass but the receiver/dryer is very cold now...
Will normal flush forced back through the condenser likely clean this stuff out? Any other ideas short of total system replacement? Alfa a/c parts are now as scarce as hens teeth.
You made two mistakes:
1. You bought the sealer
2. You used the sealer.
So was it the Quest "leak sealer" or "super seal" stuff?
The "super seal" is the hardening stuff; the other one is just a seal sweller and can be flushed out.
You may be able to flush the hardening stuff if you are quick and it has not cured. If it has cured, you are done.
it was the supersealer $&$*
Well it may not have been helpful. But you are also coming here after the fact of using such a product. Not a whole lot we can do for you now. Option is to tear down the system and flush with a professional flush machine like the H-1000. Even using a powerful machine like the h-1000 you may still have have clogs in the the evap and condenser.
