Chevrolet Camaro: travis, I have a 98 camaro with a 3.8

Customer Question

Hi travis, I have a 98 camaro with a 3.8 liter engine. I replaced the a/c compressor, accumulator and or face tube. I am uusing manifold gauge set and a can of freon. It calls for 24 oz. I currently have 15 in it. My high side is at 105. And the compressor has not kicked on to equalize the pressure. What am I doing wrong?

Hi gary, the low side is reading 115 psi and the high side is at 110, and the compressor hasn't kicked on yet
Expert:  Gary replied 2 years ago.
with the engine running can you pull out the ac compressor relay and jump terminals 30 to 87 in the relay box under the hood and will the compressor run ?
and make sure the ac fuse is not blown in the under hood fuse box
