Agree in your case, fittings and potential refrigeration oil residue.

I don't see why you think that a new evaporator would be needed.

Re: Time sensitive question, 97 tahoe W/O rear air

My thinking the only oil in the system is what was in the old compressor and the <8oz. That I put in. So drain the old compressor, take note of the volume and replace that amount back in the new compressor. If you really need a compressor, above should get you close, that's what most techs would do...

Re: Upgrading (and remounting) a Vintage AC system

A real AC shop, and many machine shops, can make new hoses for you that fit. Some will re-use your end fittings.

Re: Upgrading (and remounting) a Vintage AC system

The compressor only "robs" hp from the engine when engaged. When not engaged, the pulley rotates freely. Or just remove the belt from old York compressor. You can likely heat and bend the gearshift lever so your hand doesn't hit. I bent mine on my 1979 Toyota truck so my youngest could sit...

Re: Cant add refrigerant

So sorry for the delay n my reply. Your idea worked- I slowly removed the end of the tubing and got no gas leaking out to indicate the tubing was maybe plugged. So I completely removed the gauges tube/line, and was shocked to find out these new cans have the new useable valve! First introduced in C...

Re: 2004 Frontier AC stopped working today

I have all the same vendors as most on Rock, Ebay, Amazon and so on. If you can't find something email me. It's hard and expensive to update every year unless you one of the big boys. No worries. Just saying I can always help. Yes, you would have had to pay sales tax. Can't avoid that with me. Unde...

Re: 2004 Frontier AC stopped working today

Rock $206.00 Ackits: $228.00 Cusser you know I would have matched that. I didn't know that ACkits might match, would've dealt with you had this unit been stocked in Scottsdale. I've purchased three compressors in the past from you. I actually got a 5% discount from above from Rock, but paid like $1...

Re: 2004 Frontier AC stopped working today

Today I cut open the old drier cartridge with a hacksaw. It looked pretty clean, even its little plastic screen/filter. The new condenser came with the new drier already attached. Still wish that the new condenser and new compressor would've had new green O-rings included, and 2 new line clips for t...

Re: 2004 Frontier AC stopped working today

Actually, the self sealing cans are not a bad idea, and the adapters are only like $3. Anyway, got the grille and front supports out, then got the old condenser out (with drier attached). Guess what - thanks to cost savings these days, apparently neither the new condenser or new compressor come with...
