What kind of refrigerant goes in a 2001 Chevy venture?
Why would the ac on the drivers side of a 2000 Chevy venture blow hot while the left and rear ac blow cold?
There is a misconception that all refrigerants are freon. The EPA has band use of freon R12 in the USA. It is no longer produced stateside. The only refrigerant that is acceptable for automotive use is R134A. If you are to attempt to service your air conditioner you will need to know the exact amount needed. It is very critical on cars.
2002 Chevy venture the temperature gauge goes up you can smell coolant when it does and it goes down when you turn the heater on what is causing this?
In vapour compressor refrigeration system the low pressure and temperature vapour refrigerant from evaporator is compressed. where it is compressed to a high pressure and temperature. From compressor refrigerant goes to condenser where where it changes the phase. from condenser refrigerant goes to evaporator through expansion device.
Front wheel drive vehicles are a little more involved than changing them on a rear wheel vehicle. You basically have to take off the whole steering knuckle. You also need to press out the bearing from the hub and remove the race from the spindle with an air tool cutting wheel. The hub is held on by several bolts on the back near where the axle goes into the hub.
What would be the problem if the air conditioning compressor clutch switches on and off repeatedly on my 1999 Chevy Prizm?
It's almost certainly low refrigerant. When the compressor turns on the low pressure side is evacuated, resulting in refrigerant pressure that is low enough to turn off the low pressure switch. As soon as the refrigerant leaks back through from the high side to the low side, the pressure goes up enough to trip the low pressure switch back on, allowing the compressor to run briefly. Just add some refrigerant and you will solve the…
I have a 1998 Chevy venture van I have lights on inside the vehicle when I try to start it but the vehicle does not turn over Also when I try to start it the radio goes off?
Is it a new or an old window unit? Assuming your looking to refill it I will assume it is an old window unit which most likely uses R-22 refrigerant. R-22 is an ozone depleting refrigerant that is being phased out but should be available until 2010. There should be a label on the window unit stating which refrigerant is used.
