Re: Ford fiesta india 2014 a.c confusion

Agree with you Dougflas. That car has a Visteon variable displacement swashplate compressor. This is usually what you can get when a mechanical control valve loses adjustment and the compressor destrokes too much at high engine speeds and high condenser airflow (yes, these valves take the discharge ...

Re: Old Delphi CVC-125 variable comp (TXV system) exhibiting a strange behaviour

Don't know if you're referring to a problem with the older Sanden or to my newer comp, but this is a pic of my old control valve as soon as removed from the comp, and now that you mention it, yes, looks like there's some wear material on the smallest o-ring. But strangely enough, i can assure you th...

Re: Old Delphi CVC-125 variable comp (TXV system) exhibiting a strange behaviour

1) ...sanden SDB very small 87 cc fixed displacement comp, therefore 125 cc at full displacement would be unbalanced. In the meanwhile, i came out with another interesting fact about my system. My compressor's PN (09167048) yields both a Sanden SD6V08 1550 compressor (80cc max displacement?) and my...

Live evap but no air blowing, parallel evaps in coach HVAC

Hi everyone. OT (as in Off Topic) since this really isn't automotive AC. Lately, i've been reading a lot about automotive single compressor parallel evaporator systems. I understand that, in cars, provided you sized the compressor right and the plumbing has been done right (so that the oil won't get...

Re: Old Delphi CVC-125 variable comp (TXV system) exhibiting a strange behaviour

Thanks a lot for your tips. The liquid receiver (and dryer) is mounted on the condenser and located on its left. Again, it's basically the Chevrolet Tracker's condenser (dryer can be removed and replaced however). Still close enough to the exhaust header, though. The Agila A has a very very small an...

Re: Old Delphi CVC-125 variable comp (TXV system) exhibiting a strange behaviour

Excellent history report and references to comp and txv designs. Your BIG ears cause concerns that most people never consider. And an excellent answer by your side. And what you tell me is definitely true. Also, you're not the first one to tell me that. Hard to hit the nail on the head by remote an...

*FIXED**dying comp, cooling fan replaced* Old Delphi CVC-125 variable comp (TXV system) exhibiting a strange behaviour

Hi everyone. Great forum, read almost all threads and learned a lot of valuable info. My car is an European MPV of Japanese/German descent, known as the Vauxhall Agila A. It has manual HVAC, a block type TXV, pretty the same evaporator of an early 2000s Chevrolet Tracker, and sports a Delphi CVC-125...
