IÃ¢ÂÂve got my A/C system (2001 Mazda Miata) completely rebuilt, cleaned, and loaded with the correct amount of PAG oil (half in the evaporator, half in the compressor and worked out by hand to avoid hydraulic lock).
I need to have the system evacuated and recharged with 14.1 oz of R134a. I also need to watch this being done Ã¢ÂÂ¦. IÃ¢ÂÂve put too much time and effort into this job, to allow it to be screwed up by a failure of behind-the-scenes communication.
Can you refer me to anyone in my area? A shop or private party? They will need to be able to do the job accurately, using a scale, from a single R134a tank.
Sorry we do not allow customers in our shop. Nothing to hide but insurance prohibits customers hanging out in the shop. Post we are down on Clarendon and 36th ave.
I've used TRB's shop (AMA in Phoenix) only once for service, but feel they are good. I'm also in NE Phoenix, and do most of my own AC work, but I've also used an independent mechanic in NE Phoenix for work too. He's an all-purpose mechanic, and he's let me watch in the past. I believe you want a place that will add the correct amount using the computerized unit (I'd have to add a can and a quarter if I was doing it), and he has all that equipment.
TRB - is it OK to post the name of that all-purpose mechanic's shop?
MiataPete - contact Smart Automotive on Cave Creek Road, north of Sweetwater on east side of the street, ask for Rob. He can either answer "yes" or "no". 602-788-3669 13402 N. Cave Creek
Realize that evacuation step may take from 30 to 45 minutes, then at least 15 minutes leak down to test whether any air is getting sucked in, then addition of the $134a. So the evacuation and leak down parts are not real exciting...
Decide if you want UV dye also added.
