Refrigerant Type: 134a
Hi all. I did a search on this forum to find out about this but the one thread I found wasn't resolved.
I just went crazy trying to find a system leak and finally found the service port couplers leaking. I have the kind found here;
The o ring that I can see in the coupler looks good and it seems there must be more inside the coupler. How does one fix these things? Just buy new ones?
Thanks for any replies.
I like retirement. I can almost afford to have someone else fix my A/C
Does your leak detector go off with the cap on? If not, you haven't found your leak yet....
The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......
You mean the R-134a quick coupler with the large disk that never reseats properly if depressed is leaking? Then what used to be a metal cap with a neoprene seal on the inside for a good tight fit on a much smaller diameter Scharder valve on now a POS plastic? Or a Scharder valve that could be made new again like replacing the valve core.
Then having an EPA that doesn't want leaks approves this new POS?
From the time I was dropped off on this planet when people were sane, only two types of refrigerants, R-12 and R-22 and all the ports were identical. And people had brains, then the EPA comes along and wants every refrigerant port to be different. Certainly created a market for adapters to get even more leaks. Can't fight it, maybe time to leave this crazy place.
And where we never had leaks before, have them now.
