Re: Charging AC/All new components

Maybe 2 years ago I replaced the compressor in our 2005 Yukon with 6.0 liter (did not have an A6) and that went smoothly; that's my only experience with a GM in recent years. I added oil containing UV dye, pulled good vacuum, checked for leakdown, purged service gauge lines, let refrigerant enter th...

Re: Charging AC/All new components

Also, what are you accomplishing when you break in the compressor by turning the input shaft several revolutions before you install it ? Rotating the compressor center distributes the oil somewhat, gets it out of the compressor (important)- which cannot compress liquids, just gases. So add the full...

Re: Peanut not sitting flush

Thanks. This is only when I tighten the nut. It sits flush by hand. Single oring in the groove http://anscv.com/images/Truck/2000/AC/IMG_20180909_154905.jpg Hmmm- your O-ring channel is shallower than the one pictured on my Frontier in my earlier post. The Frontier O-ring stays in its channel and s...

Re: Peanut not sitting flush

Measure the depth of the fitting, and measure the depth inside the accumulator hole, to make sure that it CAN fit flush. Even try without the O-ring to see if it sits flush. Last year I bought a replacement high pressure AC line for my 1998 Frontier, the cylindrical fitting on the aftermarket fittin...

Re: Toyota pickup AC questions

I think that some people rent those pumps from AutoZone, use them improperly (causing oil to spill) and then they run them while low or out of oil. This obviously causes irreparable damage to the pump. Last year, I was 100 miles from my own vacuum pump. I got the free loaner vacuum pump from local ...

Re: 2006 Silverado A/C

I have a 2006 Silverado that has Dual Zone front controls.My A/C works great but the drivers side will suddenly blow hot air while the passenger side continues to blow cold. If I turn truck off and restart they both blow cold again. I have just recently changed the Drivers Side Actuator door with a...

Re: AC Doesn't Work

Hello, new to this forum. How are you all doing? I have a 2000 Chevy Silverado that the AC only blows hot air. I attempted to add freon today, but instead I found a leaking hose that goes from the cannister to the condenser. I replaced that as it had developed a hole rubbing on a metal hose for 312...

I don't see where such readings are of any value. Just shows you have some refrigerant in the system, in equilibrium between gaseous state (the pressure) and liquid.
