Re: AC Compressor size

I have a 2nz-fe engine which is a 1300 cc and I'm in the process of changing the AC compressor. Sounds like a Toyota engine installed in a Yaris or possibly a Corolla, many of which use Denso compressors. I've identified a compress which would be a direct bolt on on my engine but it's from a 1800 c...

Re: AC not cooling after remained garaged for few months

Have a shop recover the R134a and determine how low the systems is, then add correct amount plus UV dye. If AC performance is OK, shop will return to you for a few days or week, then you take it back in to have them find the leak, and repair the leak, etc. NEVER add sealant or refrigerant containin...

Re: Need help diagnosing ac problem

Ok so the Freon can was freezing up and it took like 30 minutes to get the car to take Freon. You guys were right, it’s working great now! Thank you so much for the help! Maybe I didn’t vacuum it long enough? But after the vacuum both gauges were at 0. Glad it's working now. But will it remain work...

Re: Daihatsu gino not blowing cold air

Could a compressor be faulty even though it’s turning, both high and low pressures are fine, suction line is icy cold and high pressure is not too hot? If the pressures are good, especially the high side, and the lines are at the expected temperatures, chances are it's not the compressor. I had a d...

Re: Low side hose pinches when pulling a vacuum

For what it's worth, I have never seen or heard of any A/C barrier hose collapsing inward like that under vacuum.

Re: Question about oil in new system

The oil qty is determined for a complete system, not a compressor only. Oil qty is also very conservative, the factory amount is usually more than necessary. Yes, I know. But we should keep in mind that this is a custom system composed of parts from a '65 Nova (OEM evaporator), an '06 Silverado (OE...

Re: Low side hose pinches when pulling a vacuum

Curiously, when I search the first GM part number you mentioned, 1522310, it comes up as a compressor. I'm not a "parts guy," but could it be this one instead: GM part #23141321 Suction Hose Assembly? Additional thoughts: The two assemblies you received that seem to have identical, unusual...
