Re: 1993 Honda Accord weak AC after total rebuild

Hey all, thank you very much for the quick and detailed responses. I spoke to the owner of the car about your recommendations and he showed me that the txv in the car is now making a loud "rusty gate" whine whenever the AC engages under acceleration. It's still cooling, but the sound is ob...
