Sorry, got some more questions for you, as I am sizing up this A/C job!
1. how often would the oil run out of the compressor? is there any way to check the level of it, without taking it off?
2. What kind of dye are we talking about, and I am curious why it needs dye? to look for leaks or what? is it dye you can see with black light? I have one of those in a kit that I bought when adding dye into engine oil in blazer one time.
3. What do I lube the orings with? I have all kinds of oil and stuff, white litium grease, etc...but I am not sure what is the proper thing to use for orings? I hope the instructions with the A/C compressor tell me exactly how much to add :-) so I can do it right the first time.
4. I was out looking over the A/C compressor and accumlator 2night. And had a question about the accumlator. There are those copper colored nuts on the front side of it, but I dont see anyway to unscrew it from the back side. I think the nuts holding it into place in the back are inside of a plastic looking housing. I think maybe that is the fan?? that is in the big blazk plastic housing sitting behind it. I see 5 or 6 smaller bolts holding that big black plastic housing in place. I imagine you will tell me, I have to take that off too :-O, so that I can access the nuts on the backside of the accumulator. hmmmmmmmm
5. Are you saying I put the same oil into the accumulator??? ughghghgh, this keeps getting more and more complex, the more I learn about it. If so, where do I put oil into accumlator? I have no idea on that one. Are you saying one ounce, two ounces, etc??? This is making me nervous now.
6. A side note, I also noticed a little port called evap port towards back of engine, right in the middle of the engine bay near the firewall. What is that for?
7. Can you send me a link to the type of oil I should be looking for, I want to make sure I get the right stuff, because I had no idea I needed that until the dude in the video showed himself dumping 4 ounces into it. In fact, I dont even know where to pour oil into the compressor. I dont really see any place to do that. So that is yet something Else I have to ask about.
I am sorry I have to ask so many questions about this, but I am a lot more nervous now about doing this job, because it is involving a lot more than I originally realized.
I think I can do it, but I just need to be 100% sure about these things. I certainly do NOT want to screw anything up.
Thank you once again!!!!!!!!!!!!!
