Re: 2005 Dodge 3500 AC issue

Cooling fan engaging? Sounds like you aren't pulling enough heat out of the condenser. Try misting it with water and see if the pressures come back down.

How were you able to fill it if the pressures spike after 30-45 seconds?

Re: Need advice selecting a compressor

I was looking at the belt routing on the Sanden that is in my 1999 Beetle 2.0 and it runs CCW. It works great.

1999 VW Beetle oil capacity

Hi, R&R compressor due to bad bearing on the outside of the clutch. System was working well. Because I had it open, I'm replacing the expansion valve and receiver/drier at the same time. Compressor sump had over 2oz of oil in it (almost 2.5oz recovered). There was at least 3 oz that dumped all o...

Re: Need Help- High Pressure on Discharge Side

First place to look with excessive high-side pressures is airflow over the condenser. Try again and mist it with water and see if pressures drop.

Re: Black death? Dry soot?

Thanks guys. I replaced the OT and the accumulator. I did flush out the evap and the condenser and didn't really get anything out of them. Refilled with oil and vac'd it out and charged it up and things are working nicely again.

When I reworked my '87, I got the lines through ackits. Just email them through the website and he can get you the correct part. Mine was factory equipped with the H6 compressor.

No. It just quit blowing cold. There were signs of oil around the body of the compressor and on my valve cover. Compressor still spun freely when I turned it over by hand.

Black death? Dry soot?

1987 Chevy R30 truck. H6 compressor was brand new about 18 months ago. Entire system had been replaced with new components back then - evap, condenser, accumulator, compressor and all lines. Used 8oz of PAG46. System worked great until last winter. Discovered a leak between the case halves on the H6...
