first read up on it then read the gauge... theres a cool new kit called "A/C recharging for dummies" at the parts store.. also Everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available, for FREE, in the reference section(make copies of the correct sections) read up and fix it like a PRO! :) good luck-Dave
refrigerant 135a is the the standard freon used and sold at most auto parts/retail stores. You can even do it yourself.
The exact amount of Freon that needs to be added to a Kia Optima is unknown. This is because if Freon is needed there may be a leak and the car will need to be taken to a mechanic.
You take it to a professional, the freon you buy in the store is not what your car needs !
depemds on the car as how much freon it will hold. some cars have a tag saying how much freon the car is filled with. Too much freon is just as bad as not enough freon.
It varies from car to car. The best way to know for sure is to consult a qualified A/C shop. Good luck!
1.88 pounds of 134
yes but you need to how much freon if may not be cost effective. Plus you need to know if it is the same type of freon.
take it to someone that can reclaim it
Yes you can have too much refrigerant in your A/C system and it will damage the system. The only way to know how much is in the system is to measure it by using a gauge.
all i know is that freon is put into air conditioning units in your car. it's what causes your A/C to be cold
the air coming from the vent is warm
You have to know what the problem is, before you can know the cost. Low Freon? $100. Bad AC compressor $5/600.Condenser, evaporator, hoses?
yes, it will blow out your seals. causeing all the freon you just put in to leak out. yes
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 is a very touchy thing to work with. The EPA bans its release into the atmosphere, so only experts and professionals know how to add and subtract Freon from the car safely. Take your car to a mechanic or a Chevy dealer for this.
NO! You would never put propane in an air conditioning system! For air conditioning to work it needs FREON. Depending on your car you need to find out what kind of freon it requires, as well.
By buying an AC charge hose and a can or 2 of R134a freon (depending on how much your car needs) Attach hose to the low pressure side & charge system. Do not overcharge, or you may destroy the AC system.
Compresser is out of freon. Needs a re charge. Or compressor blown
where do u put freon in a smart cAR 2009
Freon is odorless; you cannot smell it.
If it has so much dust in it you can't put in the CD.
to answer your question they are about 30 bucks a can but you can not do the work your self because no and days they have a recaptor tecnique to catch the release of the extra freon left in the system
The only freon available is R134a. Your car most like came with R12. That means it will have to have the system evacuated at a shop, and then be converted to the R134a. Look at the fittings where the freon is to be introduced to the system....if they are screw on, then your car needs to be changed over to the newer refrigerant....if they are quick connects, you simply need to add R134a.
Freon cooler is leaking from A/C system.
There should be a sticker under the hood which tells which refrigerant is used and how much for that particular system.
