1988 Jeep comanche freon

How do I know what kind of freon to use? I have an 88 jeep comanche pioneer and the air worked last summer and I just tried to use it this week and its not working. Someone suggested charging it first to see if the compressor is working. Would the 134a freon be the right kind and how many cans would I use?

First you would have to take a look at the fittings for the a/c (where you would ahrge te system at) if the fittings are threaded then it is an R12 system, if there are no threads on the fittings and the caps are red and blue then it would be an R134 system. As far as charging the system to check the compressor, i would suggest not wasting your money on the refrigerant because if something in he system has to be replaced then the refrigerant you put in will have to be removed before any repairs are made. Hope this helps.

Jeep Comanche air conditioner not working

Best bet is to go spend $30.00 on a spec manual for your make,model and year of vehicle. and more than likely undo what the guys"mechanic" did. Also if you haven't already, check your fuses and any ac, ac fan relays or breakers if there are any. Damn!!!! Second question without a smart assed answer. I think I'm slipping.

I need to know what kind of oil a 1988 jeep comanche uses?

If you have no engine leaks, you can run a 10w 30 or 20w 40 oil in your engine. I use full synthetics in all mine and add lucas engine additive as well. If you have leaks it gets expensive to use synthetics.
Always use a good quality filter ...that is the key to keeping your oil doing it's job. Change intervals should be 3,000 miles with conventional oil and 5,000 using synthetic.

What type of freon does my 1988 jeep pickup take?

1988 jeep probably has the real freon and you need to take to have it flushed out or fill. maybe have it replaced with the 134-b, you can buy that anywhere and fill it yourself.

I have a 88 jeep comanche it started over

Check to make sure the air is bled out of the system by removing the cap on the bottle and the heater hose at the thermostat housing. When fluid starts running out of the housing, reattach the hose and test again.

Break Lights won't come on in my 1988 Jeep Comanche

Why replace the whole fuse box? That's rediculous. If you can't find the fuse box, just fix the affected circuit. Did they check the brake switch?
