Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. ok, before you replaced these components did you vacuum the system down for 30 minutes?
ok, you are going to need an ac manifold gauge set so we can see the high and low pressures.
let it all out. start over
then its empty.
no, you depress the schrader valve to let it out
no, just the low side and high side ports
you never add oil in the system if the new compressor comes with oil in it.
yes, try to refill. once it starts cycling. stop
the compressor has all the oil the system needs
add a little more
gettin there, but the fan should come on as soon as the compressor kicks in.
put 12 volts directly to the fan to see if it works
the fan for the radiator should only come on when the temp go a bit past mid gauge, is that when its coming on?
what engine do you have?3.7?
it should come on right away with the ac on. i was just talking about the radiator
no, im talking about the fan in the engine compartment. theres a high speed and a low speed relay. they are all tied together with the ac clutch relay.
Just checking in to see how its going
ingenuity at its finest. double check to make sure you have enough refrigerant in the system to blow as cold as possible
ok. well is it colder when going down the road than sitting idling?
more airflow. possible partially clogged condenser?
hows it going?
