Re: R134a Capacity

I did not record the pressures to be honest. The 53 degrees was at idle. I need to take it on the freeway and see what it puts out while driving.

Re: R134a Capacity

I was able to find the parts that I needed. So, pulled for two hours, closed gauges and held vacuum for one hour and the needle did not move. Charged with r134a small cans and food scale to the best of my ability. Purge yellow hose before opening low side valve. Went from no A/C to 53 degree air com...

Re: R134a Capacity

The leak was coming from one of the lines that connects the condenser to the receiver dryer. Since I was already going to have access, I decided to replace the condenser because it looked pretty rough. Same for the receiver dryer. I know it's not the best way to do it but I will be using the small r...

Re: R134a Capacity

Well my lazy self finally got around to finding this leak. Plan on replacing condenser and receiver/dryer. Since I am doing this myself, does anyone know the rough estimate of how much PAG oil I should add to the new components? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Grayish Powder Inside High Pressure Line

Status update. Looked into the location of the blend door actuator and it was relatively easy to access. Turned vehicle on, ran A/C on max, moved temperature knob while observing blend door actuator. The actuator was trying to move, but was not able to move the plastic linkage and gears. Removed the...

Re: Grayish Powder Inside High Pressure Line

One full can was 12oz of r134a, this was easy because I let it charge until it was completely empty. The second can I used a food scale which I know is not perfectly accurate but I was able to do it successfully on a 2005 Honda Civic. I have no cooling at all, in fact, the air is very hot at 140F co...

Re: Grayish Powder Inside High Pressure Line

Pressure readings are as follows: Low side = 39psi, High side = 195psi, currently 96F outside temp. The OEM TXV that I installed was from a 2005 Honda Civic LX 1.7L Automatic. The vehicle I installed it on is a 2004 Honda Civic LX 1.7L Manual. I am not sure what the brand was but they did have the e...
