Re: Stuck open TXV, bad compressor, ...?

Just an update, it was a bad compressor. This style compressor without a clutch has voids that break away if the compressor seizes. So, the pulley was able to move freely but internally the compressor was seized.

New compressor, TXV, condenser, and cleaned lines and it’s blowing nice and cold.

Re: Stuck open TXV, bad compressor, ...?

Upon further research, it looks like I may be dealing with a failed variable displacement solenoid.

Re: R12>R134a conversion: insufficient cooling

Hot water shut off valve may be leaking. Hi Tim, thanks for the reply. I will check into this next time I am near the truck. Based off of the pressure readings, is there a way to tell what the vent temperature should be close to? Also, the only things I'm not really confident about with this AC pro...

R12>R134a conversion: insufficient cooling

1993 Toyota pickup truck, 22RE. I’ve installed a whole new AC system into this truck including new: condenser, evaporator, TXV, receiver drier, compressor, etc, and flushed all lines. Installed all new parts with pag46 oil. So, I had been having performance issues with this truck last summer after a...

Re: Sourcing Quality Compressor

Bumping my old thread. I am thinking about just replacing the compressor shaft seals since the compressor itself works well, and it would save me quite a bit of cash. Has anyone ever replaced the seals in this type of compressor, and if so, is this something that is 'easily' doable DIY? Here is the ...

Re: 91 Volvo 240 manifold gauge question

Hi Durk, I recognize your name from the turbobricks forums. Little something I've noticed with the volvos, we don't have a high side pressure port! We simply have a low pressure port, usually located on/near the receiver drier. I believe that many of the cars had the port on the back of the compress...
