Should be R134 if it is 1993 or newer if older should be converted to R134


Double check with your local auto store, but it should be R134-A. I just did my charged my 98 Contour, and used R134-A.


It takes R134. R12 is no longer used in vehicles produced around 1990 and newer. Every vechicle from 95 and on uses R134A. Some cars may have even started converting over to r134 as early as 93 but officially EVERY VEHICLE from 95 and on has r134


Unless it has been converted to R134, the OEM refrigerant installed in 1991 was R12 Freon. I suggest you have it converted to R134 if it has not already been done.


This is the transition year. It can be R12 or R134. It is listed on the unit. The fact that R12 is no longer being produced makes it extremely expensive. Convert it to R134.


hermetically sealed reciprocating compressor .



The air conditioning compressor pressurizes the refrigerant sending it through a series of chambers. This compressor is normally called a centrifugal compressor.


A reciprocating compressor is one in which a piston or diaphragm moves in a reciprocating motion. The compressor used in the AC system of a Saturn is NOT a reciprocating compressor. It is most likely a "rotary vane" compressor.

The inside blower keep operating until it has used all of the cooling your compressor has done. it is the same on central heating. The fan keeps blowing until the heat changer is cooled.


R12 134A pre 1996 is r12, after is r134


R134 is used in all cars after 1992 or so.



Part of a turbine engine is the compressor. There are no others in aircraft.


You do not want to buy Freon as it is very, very, expensive. Have the leak repaired, the system purged of all Freon R12 and the oil. Have it converted over to R134 refrigerant. You cannot just add R134 as the oil used in R12 is not compatible with R134. You will be money ahead by converting it.


Initially used R12 . Almost impossible to get. Probably will have to change to R134


Originally R-12 Should be converted to R134


R12 It is not produced anymore. Have to covert to R134.


No, if you mix them they will gel and ruin the compressor and other components. Also, the oil that is used in the r12 system is not compatible with r134a and will not flow thru the system properly causing the clutch on compressor to not disengage. If you decide to retro fit your vehicle your need to replace compressor, orfice, condensor, the fittings and evaporator, so pretty much all the components and the system need to be evacuated and vacuumed so there willnot be any moisture or air in the system. And keep in mind r134a does not get as cold as r12


A pancake compressor is a small, portable air compressor used for home and commercial jobs where a smaller volume of air is needed.


Generally speaking that is the "R12 Freon" used in the air conditioning up until around 1995. After that R134 and R134a is used.


Air ride compressor, air suspension compressor, and air pump are the names used for the same device. They are used to pump up the air suspension.


Freon is R12. Your 1997 Chevy uses R134 Refrigerant.


compressor is used for compress the gas or liquid to a certain level "Based on design" like In a air-conditioning compressor is used for compress the gas on high temperature and high pressure in the result gas convert to high temperature liquid form.
