mcdevito75 here, I have a 96" and yes you can charge the A/C yourself and you can use the 134A, the Charge port is on 1 of the metal lines comming out the firewall mine is on the metal line just about 6--7 inches from the firewall, the kit you buy for recharge will only fit this low side port, also follow the cans directions very carefully. there may be a screw down cap on this port simply unscrew this cap, port will look similar to the air valve on your tires.

Make sure the pressure is 25 to 45 psi on the low side and that the pipes are getting cold on the low side.

Could be the vacuum controlled motors inside the dash.

Set climate control to hot then cold or the temperature control lever from hot to cold and listen for the vacuum motor operating the flap inside that changes the flow from the heater core to the evaporator inside the dash area.

Good luck to you.

97 e350 van no power to compressor clutch, have power to pressure switch , i jumped pressure sw wire still no power to clutch


By the compressor clutch I assume you mean the a/c clutch if so read on:


The air-conditioning system in your Ford is basically a circulation loop through which refrigerant is pumped by a compressor. The refrigerant is a combination of gas and liquid that becomes very cold as it is compressed and then expanded. The chilled gas then flows from the compressor into an evaporator coil. The cold refrigerant now inside the coil has air blowing across the fins and tubes of the coil, thereby cooling the air, which is transferred into the car. By following the procedures below, you can remove and replace the A/C compressor clutch in your Ford vehicle at minimal cost.

Instructions
    • 1

      Have the air-conditioning system discharged or evacuated of refrigerant by certified personnel at a dealer service department or automotive air-conditioning repair facility.

    • 2

      Raise the hood and disconnect the negative battery cable terminal from the battery using a box-end wrench.

    • 3

      Disconnect the electrical plug-in connector from the compressor clutch by hand.

    • 4

      Remove the drive serpentine belt from the compressor clutch pulley by taking the tension from the pulley using a breaker bar and compressing the torsion spring tensioner.

    • 5

      Disconnect the refrigerant lines from the compressor with the box-end wrenches. Plug the open fittings to prevent the accidental entry of dirt and moisture; quarter-inch rubber stoppers are a good fit for these connections.

    • 6

      Loosen the mounting bolts with the box-end wrenches, and remove the bolts from the compressor clutch mounting bracket and lift the clutch out of the vehicle.

    • 7

      Pour out the refrigerant oil into a graduated container so you know how much new oil to add to the new compressor.

    • 8

      Installation is in the reverse order of removal. Always replace all O-rings with new ones that are specifically made for use with the new R-134a refrigerant. Lubricate the new O-rings with R-134a-compatible refrigerant oil.

    • 9

      Evacuate and recharge the system with the proper amount of R-134a refrigerant by the same certified mechanic that discharged the unit before you replaced clutch. Have the mechanic start the engine and let it run for a few minutes; this will let the system stabilize and the compressor cycle on and off.

2001 XL7 Airconditioning is not working only air not cold.


Is your compressor kicking on? If it is not kicking on chances are that either your compressor is bad, you have a bad switch, or a blown fuse. Another thing to look into is whether or not your A/C unit is fully charged with 134a coolant. If your unit is not fully charged it will not blow out cold air. I hope this helps you out.

Air compressor wont come on to to put in 134a


The AC compressor does not have to be running to charge the AC system, and the low pressure switch will even prevent the AC compressor from operating until there is sufficient pressure to operate the AC compressor without damaging it.

Start the engine and turn on the AC, then charge the system with the R-134a and as soon as there is enough pressure built up to trip the low pressure switch off, the AC compressor clutch should then engage and then finish charging the AC system.

A/C quit blowing cold air after a loud squeeling noise stopped!


Look way down on the engine front area passenger side for the compressor.
Is the belt gone?
Check the belt tensioner pulley....can you turn it?....is it seized?
If it is OK then try and turn the compressor.......and the idler part of the compressor.
If the compressor is seized.....why?
Usually lack of oil in the system,or an overcharged system.

Once you have removed the 134a gas from the A/C system before removing the compressor and before installing the new compressor make sure you add the correct amount and type of oil into the system to prevent another seized compressor after you have flushed the system to remove contaminates such as old compressor grindings......if the compressor was seized.
You will also need a new receiver/dryer once you open the system to the moisture in the air.
Do not expose the new receiver/dryer to air....install last.
Vacuum the system well before refilling with the correct amount of 134a.
At 70 to 80 degrees outside temp........a vent temp at medium fan speed of 48 to 45 degrees should be a full charge .......use this reading if you do not have a electronic scale and/or A/C machine.
DO NOT OVERFILL THE SYSTEM.

No air on 93 taurus using 134a, compressor does not engage


you are probably low on freon again. If the system is low, the pressure switch won't turn on the compressor. Add a can of R134A using a hose that has a gauge on it. It should read in the "Good" area if you have enough freon. Adding a can will probably be enough to start it working. If so, look for a leak somewhere, usually around connections where O rings leak.
You will see some oil spotting where the leak is.

1999 FORD TAURUS EVAP SERVICE PORT


The AC charge port is the on low pressure AC line (large line from compressor) near the firewall. Take care not to overcharge, there are other causes of no cooling like a stuck AC compressor cycling switch or a air temp control blend door motor malfunction, what is the issue u have? does the AC compressor run?

98 mustang squealing and ac


first thing to do before you charge it again replace the 'O' rings in back of the compressor also add some a/c oil because that will help the a/c compressor not to rattle this is the way I do mine I put in a can of 134A first and after that I put in the 134A oil and then I put in the rest of the 134A that is needed
I would disassemble the front brakes and check out the wheel bearings and sometime there is nothing wrong with them just need to add bearing grease but if they are scarred or damaged replace them
