Re: Large core updte to the forum software.

Spam seems to have been reduced. I haven't seen any in a couple of weeks. A very good thing.

Re: Pump and condenser

Have you tried Gilmore Enterprises in Las Vegas? I'm pretty sure they could advise you on how to go about your project and also provide the necessary components.

Re: Help needed. A/C blowing hot air

It sounds to me like you're getting heated air mixed in with refrigerated air and that it's not the A/C system itself. I would first check the blend door and the blend-door actuator located under the dash on the passenger side before trying to interpret the system pressures and how much refrigerant ...

Re: 1996 Jeep Cherokee A/C trouble

The system could have a restriction at the TXV. But before doing any further diagnosis and testing, you'll need to get the system charged with the correct amount of refrigerant. Do you recall how much oil you put in the system? Hopefully, you didn't add any sealer, which is bad news for an A/C syste...

Re: 2004 honda Accord low/high sides same preasure

Mobile Vehicle Air Conditioning (MVAC) often is very tricky, difficult to diagnose, and challenging to work on even for experienced techs having extensive knowledge and all the right tools. I think your idea to take it to a reputable MVAC shop is a good one. They'll be able to tell you what needs to...

Re: Replacing Robinair hoses

Sending it back is worth a try. Hopefully, they'll replace it in the spirit of maintaining their good reputation. Let us know the outcome.

Re: 2004 honda Accord low/high sides same preasure

Glad to learn that no sealer was added. The three-ounce oil charge might be okay depending on how much oil was lost when the HPRV discharged some refrigerant (and oil). But that's pure guesswork. It's always better to have a little too much oil, within reason, than not enough. From what I've read, I...

Re: Replacing Robinair hoses

Welcome to the Forum, Archer. I don't think that the hoses need to be replaced at any particular interval. I do as you did and inspect them at every use to ensure they're still intact. Usually, the hose-end seals wear out, not the hoses themselves, and I replace the seals as needed. Could be that th...

Re: 2004 honda Accord low/high sides same preasure

The AC stopped blow cold air, took it to a shop they said it was a Condenser leak but, they recommended replacing the whole system. if not i could do "OK' with just the condenser replacement. Was not convinced with their response since the system had dye in it I and I had already checked for l...
