Might be from the recent attempt to update the forum software. IT got an error so reverted back.

Not a US-based vehicle. So I could not supply any options.

Might consider the alldata or Mitchell subscription for this vehicle. Diagrams of how things move may lead you to an answer.

Re: 1977 Pontiac CCOT system rechage

Find someone with an R12 recovery machine. You do not want to cross contaminate your refrigerant.

Re: 2002 Pontiac Ram Air Trans Am ac is not cooling properly

This is the last readings see posted. If charged properly charged, you might try a new CV. High is low and low is high. Personally I would not try a different color. What I see is you're not pulling down the low side very well. 34 psi is what one expects to see at idle, not 1500. Cold engine Idle......

Re: Seeking help with my Lexus/Toyota A/c

If the door is operating correctly. My thoughts would be has the foam deteriorated? I can smell a smoker in the car in front of me when in rec/mode in my 2014 Tacoma. Blend door issues are always a pain. Lots of work just to check something simple.

Re: 2002 Pontiac Ram Air Trans Am ac is not cooling properly

When it is not working well is when you need to get some pressure readings.

This would have been a good thread for GMtech. But have not seen him around in a while.

No need for that. Just saying we have enough miss information these days. HC12 is not legal for R12 replacement in the US. Try to understand, we have had this debate for so long. It gets very old after a while.

Re: 2002 Pontiac Ram Air Trans Am ac is not cooling properly

No. Just saying what vendors list as the OEM CV.

I had a 96 Z28 for a short time. It never cooled well. Not sure about how similar they are. You might be doing the best the system, will do. Way too many pages of posts to read them all. What I have read is your pressures did not seem that far off.
