Was built for R12, can be converted to R134a
I have personally seen and looked under the hood of a 1994 Chevrolet S10 Blazer (original 1st gen boxy body-style) that came from the factory with R12. It had been converted to R134a at some point, but it had all of the original labels under the hood that said "R12", "Charge R12", and R12 refrigerant under high pressure", etc. This particular 1994 S10 Blazer that I saw was manufactured in October 1993. Any S10 Blazer manufactured before October 1993 more than likely has R12. I also looked a 1994 Chevy K3500 with the turbo diesel engine that had R134a from the factory. This particular truck was manufactured in December 1993. This would indicate that GM started using R134a in its trucks in November or December 1993.
Freon is R12. Your 1997 Chevy uses R134 Refrigerant.
It came out with R12 and needs to be converted for R134. DON'T MIX THEM. My car with 134R cools as well as any car with R12. I switched my '92 Blazer S-10 over and have been very happy with it.
1995-1996 depending on the exact date of manufacture.
A 1987 Chevy Blazer uses R12 refrigerant as shipped from the factory. Most have been converted to the more environmentally friendly R134a.
R12 And if you still have this change over to 134a instead of buy r12
try using the 134A it's supposed to be compatiable with your r12 that's what i had to do!
from the factory it has r12 in it,unless someone else changed it over to 134a
The only legal way is with a R12 recovery/recycling machine.The only legal way is with a R12 recovery/recycling machine.
No you don't have to change the A/C Compressor.
It would have been built with R12, can be converted to R134a.
r12 but get a 134 kit and change it over for about 35.00 (wallmart) you have to be a regesterd mecanic to get r12
If your looking to change from R12 to R134a why not purchase a refill kit from Red Tek which will refill either type of system. It is an EcoSafe Non-Ozone Depleating alternative to Freon. I've used the product and it works well. Go to http://www.redtek.com/ for more details.
Generally speaking that is the "R12 Freon" used in the air conditioning up until around 1995. After that R134 and R134a is used.
1993-95 for most.
There is no need to ever change the refrigerant which is R134 and not Freon R12.
It has 134 A the change was around 92 93
how to convert r12 to134r
There is only one Freon, and that is R12. R12 Freon came installed in your 1991 Chevy. It may or may not have been changed over to R134 Refrigerant. If not change it over, as the cost of R12 is unbelievably high an is no longer in production.
It originally came with Freon (R12). Unless it has been converted then it will still contains R12. I suggest you have it converted to R134a, as Freon is so very expensive and hard to find.
