Valve springs are most easily changed with cyl head removed. However, You can use a length of closeline (cotton type) fed into spark plug hole, pushing as much as possible into combustion chamber, then GENTLY turning crankshaft by hand so the piston pushes line up against the valves. DO NOT CRANK ENGINE WITH STARTER OR TURN ENGINE FOR ANY REASON TILL THE JOB HAS BEEN COMPLETED AND LINE HAS BEEN REMOVED.
after inserting line, remove the rocker arm from the valve and use a valve spring compressor (the kind that looks like a top terminal battery terminal remover) to compress the valve spring. Remove the two keepers that hold the valve from falling through the retainer (use a magnet and small screwdriver for this) then lift the spring off the valve. Compress the new spring and replace in the reverse order, making sure the keepers stay in slot at valvestem top.Once valve spring has been installed, turn engine backwards to relieve tension on line you installed and remove all of lit from cylinder. Replace rocker, and adjust per specs. (usually 1/4-1/2 turn down after becoming quiet while running)
good luck

if you know system for a fact has full charge, The low pressure switch will keep ac from engageing, thus shut the system back off. it is simple to replace it is on the reciever dryer under hood on passenger side a silver cylinder you will see a switch like plug on the dryer this is a common problem.and they just unscrew and usually have a valve underneath that keeps you from losing freon if you remove quickly.

92 Chevy pickup 2x4 auto transmission shifting abruptly from 1st to 2nd gear.

There are several causes for harsh shifting. If you have a vacuum modulator on the right side of the transmission make sure it isn't leaking. (see if any trans fluid is inside by turning it so the nipple for the vacuum hose is pointed down and tap on it) You can also have a broken accumulator spring...some are accessed from outside the case, some are not. An improperly adjusted "kickdown" cable can also cause this. Anything else is internal and would be related to a sticking valve in valve body or pressure loss at an internal shaft seal. You will need a manual for a breakdown of your specific unit to locate these items.
