Re: On TXV systems does compressor cycle ? Intended function of high pressure switch

On my 1988 Mazda truck, and my 1998 and 2004 Nissan Frontiers - all which have expansion valve systems - the de-icer switch on the evaporator case (which has a sensor in the evaporator fins) makes their compressors cycle.

Re: ARA MFG system??

Re: Should I Replace Condenser

I replaced compressor only on our 2005 Yukon as the compressor did not seize.

I replaced compressor, condenser, drier and flushed the lines when the compressor in my 2004 Frontier seized. So depends on the individual situation.

Re: 2010 aveo flush issue?

purged gauge lines and the orange smelling flush came out of gauges. Sounds like you didn't remove all the flush solvent. Is there a way to get moisture out of condenser and drier and compressor? Moisture should get boiled out of condenser and compressor by sufficient vacuum/duration. But drier pel...

Re: Youtube AC repair procedure - Right or Wrong?

As to YouTube help: some stuff there is OK, some is not. One has to evaluate based on credibility, and what others post. This is a 100% true recent example: Scotty Kilmer had some video of cleaning a catalytic converter with lacquer thinner. My brother in law thought this was a good idea, and Mrs. C...

Re: Youtube AC repair procedure - Right or Wrong?

Disclaimer: I'm NOT a certified AC tech, and do not consider myself an expert. First, here is the link to the discussed video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIiKPm3f75k My own opinion is that proper evacuation removes air from the system (about 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen) which takes up volume in...

Do you mean "evaporator", like under the dash?

Re: 2009 GMC Arcadia compressor starts and stops

I start the compressor and see press changes high side goes up.to near 200psi and low towards 25. Sounds to me like a little low on R134a. As to both fans being on when AC is switched on, I would "think" yes, but I don't know. I think both electric fans come on with the AC on our 2005 Yuk...

Re: 92 S10 Truck Blows Air Out Floor Vent Only

Is it possible that the coil is weak and letting the clutch to slip and causing it to make noise? If clutch is slipping, that should be evident visually. I just last month fixed an intermittent slipping AC clutch on my 1998 Frontier. I removed a shim under the drive plate, and now it works fine. Wh...
