Customer Question

the aircompressor vents when refridgerant is added. I replaced the compressor, vaccumed the system, it held vaccum and started to add refriderant. It took the first 12 oz. fine but when adding the next 5 there was a release of pressure and refriderant under the car

what model and year is this? And where is the freon leaking out when you add?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
2006 chrysler pacifica out of the underneath of the car where the compressor sits.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
the pressure on the low side line is 94, which seems high and possibly indicates a blockage.
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 8 months ago.

does your A/C machine allow you to fill from the high side? It's possible it is blocked, or that your expansion valve is not opening

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
no it doesn't, am looking for the blockage now, expansion valve will be replaced, hopefully that will take care of it.
