Re: Strange PSI's in AC system, no cold AC

Ok, its going slow, but steady. I will be picking up this kit tomorrow, but am worried as to how to determine the 0.020 gap . I now have 0.035. So, should one expect to find "washers" inside the plate, which one can remove to get to the lower gap size? If so, can one then just tighten the ...

Re: High side adapter fitting bad?

For $9.00 I'll take me chance that is a very low budget adapter. I'm just offering my opinion. Never said quit or did I? It's under warranty or buy another one. Either way will get you back to square one. Have you tried another adapter? Autozone in many stores offer rental guages. Sorry if my comme...

Re: High side adapter fitting bad?

Good to know, Tim. I guess then your guess is it just quit, correct? Is this normal with cheap fittings? I dont know as this is the only one I ever owned, for 12 years or so.....I am not a pro.

Re: High side adapter fitting bad?

Are you talking about an R-12 high side fitting adapter? I have one for GM-type, and one Ford-type which I still use on my '88 B2200. What vehicle/year? A couple of years ago I bought a pack of refrigerant charging hose seals like this. Good thing, I had one fall out of a hose fitting, and some wea...

High side adapter fitting bad?

People, My red (high side) quick connect fitting (that is attached to the red hose of course), when snapped on to the high pressure access fitting to the system seems not to snap in nicely. It does not 'grip" or "snap in", and a bunch of refrigerant of course starts to swoosh out. It ...

Re: How to clean out dessicant beads from system

Thanks, cusser! That confirms my suspicion. I will leave the condenser and get new drier and put in new exp valve. Should I flush out liquid line in BOTH directions? With a simple air compressor, blasting in both directions? Also, I heard never to use solvents like brake cleaner/mineral spirits, ace...

How to clean out dessicant beads from system

People, Civic 2001 EX, system was not cooling right (blew cold air sometimes, blew ambient other times). Pressure in low side was zero while high side was 170 or so. Something was clogging the valve, I figured. Dismantled the exp valve and noticed small 2mm beads of what has to be dessicant stuffed/...

Re: Persistent ac drain tube problem- flooding

If the drain tube is not the source of the back up, then the issue is in the evaporator box. On some vehicles the bottom of the evaporator box can be removed without removing the dash. I can't really recommend drilling that evap drain tube out and threading in a larger hose barb (one would need to ...
