Re: Compressor Cycling

New Member here. . . . First off, I don't know squart about AC systems except they're supposed to keep me cool. I recently recharged my system, with a DIY unit from a local parts store.

Re: High Pres Line Splice

I have aluminum line on the high pressure side and need to attach two tubes together. Can I use the flare fitting parts, which are brass, to connect two aluminum pipes to make one? I use these on copper tubing all the time for propane, but propane is typically very low pressure after the regulator,...

Re: Compressor relief valve diagnosis

In today's World to use the internet for information and then go google shopping for price. I get calls every day where someone wants 30 minutes of your time to goggle shop. I try and be respectful overall. It gets frustrating as you like to help but takes away from real customers. Can't keep track...

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

On my 1998 Frontier, last summer my AC clutch was slipping sometimes. There were two shim washers under the drive plate, so I removed the thinner of the two, then re-installed the AC clutch drive plate and that will make the AC clutch "gap" narrower (yet not so narrow that it scrapes in th...

Re: New member needs advice from the AC experts. :)

Cusser: The uninformed simply have no idea of the scale of the refrigerant business. Refrigerant is mostly recycled - well except for driveway pirate mechanics that vent it. My experience - which is small - is that automotive shops will credit one for the amount of refrigerant (either R-12 or R134a...

Re: Minimum compressor RPM

I think you need to bump up the idle 200 rpm when the AC is on. You might need to rig up a mount for a solenoid of some sort, install a solenoid to the throttle arm. When you kick on the A/C, it will boost RPM at any rate you adjust the solenoid in the bracket to. Solenoid should be easily found at ...
