there is 2 o-rings at each connection
Your condensor outside , where the compressor is . should have an information plate showing the type of refrigerant used
The a/c compressor will cycle back and forth if the system is low on freon or you have electrical problems..........
On a 2002 Lincoln LS : The radiator for the engine coolant system is located at the front of the engine compartment ( the air conditioning condensor will be in front of the radiator )
If system has been opened i.e. compressor change then system will have to be evacuated before charging - a professional should perform this service
what part of the system? evap. blower motor in car. compressor dryer orfice hose assembly condensor under hood
Your 1992 Lincoln Town Car takes 2.5 pounds of R-12 refrigerant or 2.75 pounds R-134 (if system converted)
Check hoses, compressor, evaporator and condenser for leaks. also check pressure s put gauge on sytem make sure you don't have a plugged system condensor or expansion valve or orfice tube
it is realy hard to answer these types of ?'s without looking at your system i suggest trusting your gutt and your tech
The air conditioning system is behind the dash like all other cars. The compressor, however is mounted on the engine, in the rear of the car, with refrigerant lines running up to the evaporator/condensor up front.
The compressor will stay running only because there is a leak in the air system somewhere and the compressor is trying to play catch up.It will burn out if left to run continuously ...
The TXV will be located on low pressure side somewhere between compressor and condensor You need to recover the frion from system before servicing the TXV Tip: The compressor is belt driven off the engine and has 2 hoses leadind to it
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 window a/c is a self-contained unit. The condensor, evaporator and compressor are all in the unit. A split system is the common central air unit you see on most homes. The evaporator coil is located at the furnace withe the system fan, while the compressor and condensing coil are outside the house. This is a simple explaination, but I .
The compressor is located on the front passenger side of the engine compartment just in front of the battery. (man, have we had problems with the whole suspension system!)
The compressor, along with several other parts make up the ac system. The most common part to go bad and need replacing is the compressor.
Likely your system has a leak and the compressor can't keep up with the volume of the leak. <><><> Agree. The air bags in the suspension of ours had developed small holes, and the compressor could not keep up. Get that fixed before the compressor burns out.
CondenSER is correct. CondenSOR is not a real word. Regards!
what is the responsibility of the compressor in the air condition system
To change the compressor on a system containing R-410A you must isolate the compressor then?
The condenser does not have a low pressure side, because the condenser is not on the low pressure side of the system - it is on the high pressure side, and refrigerant going into the system is at high pressure throughout the whole of the condenser. The high pressure side of an AC system begins at the compressor outlet and ends at the metering device inlet (refrigerant leaves the compressor outlet and goes directly into the condenser inlet). The low pressure side runs from the metering device outlet to the compressor inlet.
Oil capacity for the complete system is 8 ounces. The breakdown is 2 oz. in the compressor(or the exact amount you remove from same. The evaporator core holds 3 oz. , the condensor core holds 1 oz. and the accumulator holds 2 oz.
i take it that its locked up more than once . it could be that metal matter isn't getting flushed out of system when installing new compressor or its always running high pressures from not enough air flow thru condensor . if compressors lock up in less than a year of each other, it is metal in system
You sure can. Just be careful to follow the directions closely and not overcharge your system. Watch for condensation (sweating) on the low pressure tube leading back to the compressor (do not touch the hot tube coming out of the compressor towards the radiator/condensor coil), and when it is cold and sweating, you have enough R-134a in the system.
check the override switch and make sure that it did not get switched off if it is on you will more than likely need to replace the compressor
It depends on what you want to do with the sytem. If it is and older condensor contact the supplier and ask for specifications on what the condensor does in 410A. It only depends on the different pressures in the system en the condensoing capacity at R410A.
