yes, seems like it was kicking on/off every few seconds.
needles were rising/dropping in sync with the compressor cycles, but always consistent range of readings on each gauge. ran the test for over twenty minutes.
this sounds like great news !
Thanks for the info.
Does this imply a total failure of the system? Or does the freon tend to just leak out after 12 years? I have only had this vehicle for three months - wasn't "cold" when I got it, but the price was right.
follow up to my AC problem.
bought a can of R134a and prior to adding ran another static test. H/L read just 10psi (??)
then turned on the engine and AC .... did not sound like the compressor was kickinng on at all and the air was anything but cold not even cool).
So I heard that if freon is too low the compressor doesn't kick in. As I began to add the freon the Low bounced back & forth btwn 25-65psi and the High only goes btwn 140-150psi.
outside temp is jsut about 90 F
does this mean I need to add yet another can?
thanks, will keep you posted
