Which freon will leak from a smaller hole R-22 or R-410A?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The R-22 (chlorodifluoromethane), will leak from a smaller hole than R-410A will. Sort of. Now that we've answered the question, it's time to state that R-410A is an azeotropic mixture of difluoromethane and pentafluoroethane. And the difluoromethane component of the mixture is a smaller molecule than chlorodifluoromethane, which is what R-22 is. But the pentafluoroethane is a larger molecule than the chlorodifluoromethane (R-22). If molecular size is the sole determinate as to which "stuff" can get out, part of the R-410A can get out a smaller hole than the R-22, but all of the R-22 can get out through the "right sized hole" because it is smaller than a constituent of the R-410A. It's your call. Links are provided.

What causes a 1998 VW Polo to have trouble starting in hot weather when it runs fine?

Asked by Wiki User

One possible reason for this issue could be a faulty fuel pump or fuel filter. In hot weather, the fuel may vaporize more easily, leading to difficulty starting the engine. Checking and potentially replacing these components may help resolve the problem.

I have a 1997 Chevy Astro Van that won't start and I am getting no fuel and no spark?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Try slapping the fuel tank, maybe the pump is gone. also bad for fuel line poppet valves under intakes. These vans will only run on a certain fuel pressure! Any lower and you can have problems. get it checked out fuel pump is in gas tank. To fix the fuel pump, the tank has to be removed (no smoking) ,so some diy mechanics cut a hole in the top above the fuel pump ,so the next time it will be easy.

How do you remove the alternator from a 2002 Chevy G3500 van?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I could give you a more specific answer if you told me which engine your car has, but hopefully this will work:

1. Disconnect the battery ground. Use gloves to keep from getting any acid on your skin.

2. Take note of the routing of the serpentine belt and release the tensioner, move the belt out of the way.

3. Disconnect the wires from the alternator.

4. Remove the bolts that hold the alternator in and lift it out.

Reverse the procedure to put it back.

How do you replace the alternator on a 2000 Chevy Express?

Asked by Wiki User

on a 2000 v6 Astro you need to disconnect negative side to battery, remove the air filter housing by loosening the ring clamps to the throttle body, snap off cover, lift out air filter, pull entire unit up off pegs, then remove upper half of fan shroud, theres 7 bolts holding it and they're 10mm. Move top hose out of way before pulling up, it has a couple rubber things holding it it needsto clear. Then put the end of a socket extenion without a socket on it into the square hole below idler where belt is at your extreme left when facing engine, attach a ratchet to it and a bar for leverage and pull and belt will come off. Same thing when you put it back on. Change it if its been on a year or two. There are two bolts at bottom of alternator 13mm i think, and one on backside you'll have to remove the doghouse to get to. A couple of electrical connections back there also.

How much does it cost to repair a blown head gasket in a 1996 jeep Cherokee?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I was just googling this myself. I was quoted 1500-2000 dollars for a blown head gasket repair on a 2002 Pontiac Montana. I believe the pricing is similar to most vehicles- depending on whether or not you have 1 or 2 head gaskets (and most vans, SUV's and trucks have 2). The reason I was told its so costly? Because they have to take the entire engine apart to perform the repair. The part itself is cheap, the the labor is intensive. The mechanic said he has to replace both head gaskets, because if one goes, its best to do both as the other is likely to go next. I think this price sounded very expensive. Another mechanic said he would do it for $750 on the side (but it would take him 2-3 weeks to finish it in small intervals). I may see what the junk yard will give me for it, its not worth much. Also considering taking it to the community college to see if they can fix it cheaper. A friend of ours in back in school for that program, and he said they take non-student cars occasionally if there is time. He agreed that the mechanic was correct with the explaination, and also thought it was a little high priced.

How do you replace fuel pump on Chevy 2000 Express conversion van?

Answer

The fuel pump is in the gas tank. It is not easy , first before you do it make sure that is the problem.Get a auto manual if your not up to it take it to a good repair shop and be ready to pay $600.00 to $700.00 to have it done.

on those vans the conections usually go bad before the pump,check the wires under the van by the front of gas tank.this happend to me.

The best way to tell if it's working, is to listen for a sort "whine" for about 5-10 seconds when first turning the key to the on position without trying to start the engine. The noise you hear is from the fuel pump in the gas tank.

Having driven several of these vans over several years, 99% of the time, the failure will be the pump itself.

As far as replacement, if it's a cargo van and you're not too concerned about the floor in the van, I measured and cut a hole with a hole saw over the gas tank (carefully) where the fuel pump is located. Then I could pull the pump. No dropping of the gas tank, but you will have to cover the hole and seal it so that no exhaust fumes can leak into the van. I used a thick piece of metal, gasket material and sealer with screws for the next time I might have to do this. You also have to be careful you don't puncture the top of gas tank and a spark from drilling into it could be a "Ka Boom"!

They were a common failure problem.

Honda Sedans have a plate over the fuel pump in the gas tank in the trunk. Makes for easy replacement. Their pumps aren't cheap though. About $175

1990 Bonneville won't start when cold but runs fine when hot plug in block heater or heated garage?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

There are a couple possibilities:

Start with a fuel line de-icer in case you have a little water in the fuel and it's freezing. Water builds up from condensation, much the same as water builds up around your glass when it's hot in the summer. Gasoline manufacturers do NOT put water in your fuel, no matter what your "expert" friends say.

If that doesn't help, try a tune-up. Plugs & wires can sometimes help by giving a hotter spark. Starting cold is difficult on your engine and you need to make sure it has all the help you can give it.

Last, if nothing else helps, check the compression. If compression is low the engine will be difficult to start and nearly impossible when it's cold.

How do you change the drivers side door handle on a 1998 Dodge Avenger?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

== == Go to the Allpar.com site and search for an article by Rodger Koppa on how to do this nasty little job. Did it on both my doors, be prepared to cuss a bit. After you install the new handles you can forestall future breakage by just popping the lkatch with the handle, and then using the edge of the door to swing the door open. Those dinky plastic handles just can't take the side torque with those heavy doors! I used the directions provide by Rodger Koppa to repl;ace my passenger side door handle and it works great. Like he says though be prepared to cuss a little bit and just hope you don't drop anything into the door. Good Luck!!

Can you re-torque intake manifold bolts to stop a leak?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I did just that today on my son's 2000 Saturn SL1. It had a slight miss at idle speeds. After re-torqe the miss seems to be gone. I think he had a slight vacuum leak. Understand, I am no master mechanic. To have a new intake gasket installed by a mechanic would have run around $500. I figured that I had nothing to loose by trying. It seems to have helped and maybe solved the problem. I'm also going to run some fuel cleaner through the system. I'm sure that some dirt seeped past the leak. Make sure you don't tighten the nut so tight that it brakes.

Where is the horn relay located on a 2000 Chevy Express van?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

They hid it. Facing the vehicle it is located below and to the right of the master cylinder above the computer almost inside if the left fender. Should say Delco Fuse Center on it.

There trucks are notorious for steering column wiring problems. The issue is that the horn and air bag share the same wire passage. Got to be very careful.
