What would cause this?

Turbofiat on Tue July 12, 2011 1:10 PM User is offline

While I'm in a posting mood I got another question.

Because my high side port is at the bottom of the condensor and the low side port is inside the car at the evaporator, in order to monitor both pressures at the same time, I have to connect my manifold guage to the high side port and connect one of those Interdynamic trigger/guages to the low side port. Otherwise both hoses won't reach.

I put approximatly two cans in the system. When the second can was almost empty, everytime I pulled the trigger, refrigerant would leak between the can and the screw on fitting. Or at least that was where I think it was leaking from. It could be leaking from the trigger itself.

Faulty fitting or the refrigerant in the system was somehow overiding the pressure in the can causing it to leak? Faulty fitting?

Buy longer hoses. Throw the Interdynamics thing away.

I second the junk chunk.
