How do I put pag 46 into reciever/dryer condenser assembly?

Bills86e on Fri September 04, 2015 9:02 AM User is offline

Year: 02/2007
Make: Pontiac
Model: Solstice GXP
Engine Size: 2.0L
Refrigerant Type: R134a
Ambient Temp: ?
Pressure Low: ?
Pressure High: ?
Country of Origin: United States

How is oil inserted? (into dryer/condenser assy)

Next I will be charging the system up with 1.6 lb R134a refrigerant. My under hood tag is missing, so I don't know what the Hi & Lo should be?

They make oil injectors or you can open the system up and pour a little in at a connection.

Question, why are you adding oil to the system?

Compressor went out. I bought a kit, compressor - dryer/condenser, valve, O-rings & Pag 150 oil.
My car takes pag 46, so I'll dump it and use the 2.5 oz pag46 in compressor and 1 oz in condenser, but the dryer is part of condenser. (that's why I ask the procedure to get it in the condenser)
I was lucky in that my old condenser was not all crapped up, so I will just back blow the evaporator to dislodge any debris in the expancion valve, but I put a rag over end and no crap came out.

Thanks for asking. Hope someone caN TELL ME.

OKAY I found out 1.6 lbs. NOW I HAVE a real problem!
Without starting the engine I started filling the 134a synthetic, then started. This prevented the compressor seals from being damaged. I expected the fan to come on and the compressor, but not. Saw the High was hitting 350 so shut her down to investigate.
Compressor was unplugged! CEL on, so put the code reader on to find a P061 (fan speed controller. First I thought this was a minor set back. Took the pipe off and got my lil hand in there and got the C plug in, got all back together and when I re-started, the compressor came on. Sitting there thinking, wondering....umm. I shut the AC off and I'd let her sit there and idle, get up to about 226* and that's when the fan should come on, but NOOOOO 230*.
Shut her down, now am worried the new speed controller is ok, but maybe the damage went all the way to the cars Brain. These Speed Controllers have two wires out to fan, but three come in. When first prob was C not coming on I thought maybe the pressure switch,
but after eliminating the AC, hoped the fan circuit was ok. Anybody have any thoughts?

No signal in white wire? Will reflashing the PCM bring it back?

I need a wiring diagram of the fan cooling circuit on my GXP vehicle to identify the relay terminals and wiring connections. 02/07

Something in my fan control circuit is faulty and I need help.
