Re: 1983 Audi UR Quattro A/C clutch removal

Likely will depend upon how much room/clearance there is. Stuff like radiator and shroud might need removal. If the AC is still R-12, I definitely understand your issue. What's the issue with the AC clutch? Need a new bearing? Slipping can sometimes be due to too-large of gap; I just removed an AC c...

Re: Pressure Range

Are you adding the refrigerant from cans? Because one cannot get full 12 oz. into the system from each can, especially when one correctly purges the air from the hose before first can and in between cans. I would expect high pressure at about 2000 rpm to read about 220 to 280 psi at your ambient tem...

Re: 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee...

DEFINITELY DON'T ADD ANY SEALER TO THE SYSTEM. Doing so will only create more very costly problems. Find the leak, repair it, evacuate and recharge the system, and you'll soon be driving in cool comfort again. As to what JohnHere posted: read, re-read, and follow every word of that !!! Never add se...

Re: Low Cooling AC

On some AC clutches, the gap becomes too large and and will not engage; can be reduced by removing a thin shim.

Agree with Tim - that's good vent temperature.

Re: New Motorcraft compressor, clutch wouldn't turn by hand, squealed after installation

If my vehicle, just to learn more, (1) I'd pull the belt off the compressor and try turning the compressor with a wrench. (2) I'd jump the compressor clutch with 12 volt positive wire and see if the AC clutch engaged each time. I would guess that it might be possible to get oil on an AC clutch surfa...
