Yes, it is sealed, but that doesn't mean it is leaking, otherwise why do you need to 'service' it every year? Small amounts escape under normal operating conditions until one day it doesn't cool so well. That said, you need to know what you are doing when handling freon and have some competency with the procedures. This can be learned, and there are lots of places to get guages nowadays. But you MUST be up to the task and it is best to have someone walk you through the first time. And of course read up on it and your guage manuals before you even think about checking your pressures. Get a real manifold guage & learn how to use it, not just those little guages that come with a can.

NOW, a '92 model Honda probably uses R-12. In that case you must convert to R-134-a or another equivalent. At least this means you must change the seals, dryer, expansion valve, etc with specific types of parts for the refrigerant you convert it to. Before you do this, I'm sure someone will pull down your old R-12 into their recycler for free. R-12 is expensive and they are not making anymore, so don't let anyone charge you for giving them a rare commodity if you even have just a little bit left in the system. Get a conversion kit, change the fittings & the seals, dryer, etc, -check with your supplier- then have it professionally vacuumed & charged. You'll still save a bunch by doing what you can & have a pro recharge it

One last thing, if it turns out you have a leak there is a probe guage you can get at Harbor Freight tools to check for leaking halogenated gases- ie Freon. Regular price is 69.99 but you can usually get a coupon or other bonus to sweeten the deal. This tool is better than the other way, which you can't do if you have R-12- no leak finder refill charge with red dye is available. The other way for 134-a is a UV dye that is added, or to light it with a special torch, but that can expose you to killer phosgene gas used in chemical warfare during WWI. Some things are better left to those with the equipment & expertise.

If you have 134-a, then invest in the guages (provided you are up to the task) and top off with a can with the UV dye, that way when you really have a leak you can find it with the special glasses & UV light it comes with.

Call your parts department at your local Hoda dealer and give them the serial number. It's usually a four digit number.

This is a common problem when the AC system has a low charge.
If this is the case, you have a leak somewhere. Do not try to fix it yourself without the proper equipment.

How do I check a 1994 honda accord LX for freon leaks

2004 Honda Accord a/c will not come on. Blower motor resister was replaced last year. compressor would start and stop. now nothing. I have switched relays around but to no avail. Also winsheildwipers work...

You will probably need a shop manual to have the wiring diagrams needed to trace the circuits.
There may be other components that affect both the wipers and ac but I know the key switch does.

My air condition is not working

first check your fuses and any relays sometimes you have multible relays that are the same in a fuse box that you can switch around but i would bet you have a leak either in your compressor or in your line if the clutch is not kicking on and off or running all the time when you turn it on thats because your freon has leaked out the system is sealed freon does not go bad if there is no pressure in the system it will just blow warm air your question is vague so if your blower is not blowing bad blower motor or a fuse if warm not getting cold your system has a leak if you have not broke the system you can try stop leak 2 cans to seal a leaky compressor compressor could be bad if it wont spin noisy clutch could be bad need new compressor but if a leak after stop leak add the right amount or r-134a 2 to 3 cans if the compressor kicks on on the first can of stop leak or freon your system did leak down and you hope the stop leak fixes it but first check all your lines are tight and that the freon is not leaking from the high or low pressure ports the valve can leak sometimes make sure your caps are on take some spit after you add freon back into your system see if your spit blows a bubble if it does replace or tighten the valve. a few things to check start with power fuses then add a can of freon if you have power now clutch engagement if you add and kicks on there is the reason a leaky system it will all leak back out in a day or several days... thats why you can add the stop leak things you can try or take it to the shop and pay someone some $$$$$

Hi, I have an Honda 1996 LX, and the air conditioning has stopped working , also both fans are not working , I have checked the fuses and they seem fine , also I looked at the wires and and nothing stands...

the fans should work only when there is liquid inside , if you don't have any freon then fans don't work and you don't have ac check if you have freon if you don't have than you have a leak most likely on the joints if you have freon then check the condenser if is coming on.

Honda accord 2004 4 cyl a/c completely stopped working suddenly

You could have a slow leak. Once the charge goes below a set point the pressure switch will not allow the a/c to turn on. Have the freon level checked?

I ad this problem fixed and it cost $35. Apparently, this happens when the Freon level is low for some reason. They refilled the Freon and now I have AC on both sides. Don't forget to replace the internal filter in the glove box.
