Re: 2006 Ford F250 6.0 diesel AC accumulator replacement..how much oil?

Drill a hole in the bottom and measure what comes out. That amount of fresh oil goes in the new one

Re: Forgot more than I know

Wonder what is controlling the fans now? Imagine cycling the fan on a residential CU (Condensing unit)? What is the gap between the condenser and the radiator? Any trash, leaves, etc between the two? Is there any way air can get around the condenser before it goes thru the radiator? You may need air...

Re: Forgot more than I know

The method you want to use to adjust the charge is unconventional, and I am not convinced the charge level is wrong. Doug just followed me along with the idea of not enough airflow, and he knows lots more than I do. We do a lot of custom work here, and we always make sure the condenser fan is on if ...

Re: Forgot more than I know

From initial post,
"24" fan on high blowing directly into the grill of the car"

Re: Forgot more than I know

If you go to a different orifice tube (OT) then "buying an orifice tube that comes in a FORD box" is the only way. Whether the OT is all covered with crud will be interesting. There is a small filter screen on it to collect junk before the actual orifice. Superheat and subcooling are not e...

Re: Forgot more than I know

When all the other components were replaced after the compressor died, ( the metering device you are referring to is called an orifice tube, it is a fixed orifice), it would have been a really good plan to have flushed the evap and hoses. An exploded compressor tends to shower the rest of the system...

Re: 1993 Dodge Cummins AC troubles

Call Tim and see what he might be able to get. Direct conversation usually more helpful than going back and forth on a forum. He is a good guy.
