You can get a retro-kit at Wal-Mart or local parts store with complete instructions. You can jusmp out pressure switch at accumulator with paper clip to start compressor during refill procedure
hey if you do not have freon in the system you have to go to an auto repair shop that does a/c work and have the system vacuumed down to 3in hg.then you can add freon this cant be done by you unless you have an a/c vacuum pump and the proper connection hoses and gauges. don`t know if you`ve had the car retrofitted to except r134 instead of the r112 that year came with, because if you hav`nt you ca`t buy r112 without an license. but all you have to do is go to auto zone or pep boys and buy a refit kit for about 40 bucks. change the nozzles yourself add in the oil and then go to your a/c shop and let them pull a vacuum on your system then add the freon from the kit and hope you don`t have a leak somewhere hope this was able to help you out
The 2002 Saturn does not use "Freon" since Freon was manufactured by DuPont. Most vehicles since mid 1990's have been using 134A refrigerant.
Freon is DuPont's trade name. There are 2 types of Freon, Freon-11 is trichlorofluoromethane, while Freon-12 is dichlorodifluoromethane. All types of Freon have been banned from production since 1996. Refrigerants are manmade compounds not Elements
Freon (R12) has not been installed in any vehicle since 1995.
Freon (R12) has not been installed or produced since 1995.
Chemical instability of mixing a CFC and HFC together increases the risk of fireExcessive system pressure resulting in damage to or destruction of AC system componentsImproper lubrication of the compressor since the R134a won't carry the oil used for R12 systems properly
The 2001 Ford Explorer A/C unit does not contain Freon (R12). Freon has not been used since 1995.
Freon (R12) is no longer in production, and by law has not been used in any vehicle since 1995.
If it will not even turn over. Locked up A/C compressor clutch. Disconnect the wire going to the compressor clutch. See it the engine will turn over.
It does not use freon. It uses R134A refrigerant, as do all newer cars since sometime in the '90s.
There is no 2015 Pontiac Firebird or any other Pontiac. The last Pontiac Firebird was made in 2002. Pontiac is a defunct brand that has not been produced since 2010.
Yes. Since the 90s.
If the system is low on freon the a/c compressor will cycle on and off in short intervals. The compressor is located at the lower driver's side section of the engine. The center of the pulley will move and stop as it cycles. You should be able to hear it cycling also. Since it is an older model car you will probably have to use R12 refrigerant which is not available at most autoparts stores. A qualified technician should be able to recharge your a/c but the problem will most likely persist because of a leak somewhere, either in the lines or the condenser/evaporator.
CA law does not prohibit freon in general. It prohibits R-12 type freon. You need to convert your AC system to R-134 freon, which costs about $35 in parts, and can be done at home if you have the mechanical training. R-134 freon is legal to purchase without a license.
Since you are aware of what freon smells like , and you must know what it is used for , there is only one system in an auto that uses it.
Freon can leak. Since it will do so in the form of an invisible, odorless gas, it is very difficult to observe such a leak.
The Pontiac brand is defunct and has not been built since 2010.
I would assume Pontiac Game Changing Performances stopped since Pontiac is going under.
Since Pontiac itself is no longer in existence, the logical answer would be no.
R 134a by Federal Regulations all cars have R-134a "freon" in the AC system since 1996 to present.
Yes since that is the proper type of freon.
most likely you have a r12 cooling system. You will first have to visit a certified AC mechanic to have the r12 drained from your system and since you have to do that then you might as well have them do the r134 conversion at the same time, it won't add that much more to the cost.
Does not contain any Freon (R12). Freon was banned and has not been installed in any vehicle since 1995. there is freon in a 2000 durango,its in the air conditioner line,and it takes about 3 to 5 cans to fill it depending on how much is in it. you can buy everything you need to fill it up at walmart.
Since a 1997 Intrepid has a high pressure cut off switch, it is OK to put a whole 1 pound can of Freon in it. You will need to do this after charging the system.
Well it depends on what kind of cable compressor you are looking for since it is not specific check on gumtree.com to see if they have what you are looking for at an affordable price.
Nothing, the AC service connections accept only equipment made for environmental 134-A since 1994 NO FREON!
