Re: Is This What Stop Leak Looks Like?

Forgot to mention, we had to run 12 volts to the compressor so we could get gauge readings. Looked like old evidence of a leak at the case halves of the compressor. I recommended he replace the compressor, condenser, accumulator, orifice tube, and flush the evaporator and any lines without mufflers....

Re: Very Little Cooling

Thanks!

I have experienced a control valve problem on my nephew’s Ford 500 a couple years ago. I didn’t know GM also used them.

Very Little Cooling

2010 Buick LaCrosse that isn’t cooling well. Vacuumed and recharged to the amount listed under the hood. At 1500 rpms. High side was 200 and low was 55. At idle the low side would sometime be as high as 70. Has something gone bad in the compressor? Lowest vent temp was 65.

Re: Working on fire engine AC (again)

Thanks for the detailed instructions. I won’t be able to make it he refrigerant flush setup his time, but I will save your instructions and be on the lookout for an extra tank to be used as the trash tank. If I can gather up the correct fittings, I’m going to try the brake clean and side can tap met...
