Re: 93 Toyota Pickup recharge challenges

I'm afraid MVAC isn't newbie-friendly stuff. I'd recommend you hand this over to a pro. Vacuum is only one part of the leak test. The other is, you guess it, check how well it holds pressure.

93 Toyota Pickup recharge challenges

Hi forum friends, New user and my first post. Thanks in advance for your help on this project... 93 Toyota Pickup 2WD 22RE engine. It was converted to R-134A maybe 10 years ago and has worked well ever since, until recently when the AC belt started squealing and smoking, so I pulled over and cut it ...
