How much pressure does a air compessor need for a 1993 GMC 6.5L Diesel need to function correctly?

My dad has a 1993 GMC 6.5L Diesel. The air did work on it, but when it stopped blowing cold he put more freon in it. He needs to know how much pressure it is suppose to have. I have researched and I have had no luck at finding the answer. Does anyone know? Please and thank you!

Generally speaking, with outside air temp around 80 degrees, and the engine at idle, low pressure should be around 35psi and high pressure should be around 200-250psi.
R134 freon will run a little lower or higher than R12.

SOURCE: MY AC IS NOT BLOWING COLD

not happy here i bought a machine for recharging A/C and now they have started selling the gas in a can in the supermarkets ,2400€ for a machine and you can buy a can for about 25€ .could have a blocked restrictor valve ,venturi valve by whatever name you call it but its in the actual pipe on american cars and on the new ones here now as well,only need a bit of dirt to move in the system and it will block this valve evan if someone has put a leak sealer in this could cause the valve to clag up and not allow the gas through.strip and clean whole system blowing it out with an airline.This gas has to be recovered with a machine and released into the atmosphere.

SOURCE: my 99 ford f-150 blows only hot air.

The A/C system has a pressure switch will keep the A/C from running if the freon is low. It prevents damage to the A/C compressor from low freon.
My bet is you'll need to recharge the A/C system.

SOURCE: My air conditioner won't blow cold air. It just blows air.

Hello I'm a M.B. tech. 1st you need to know why the freon is low. Hopefully it just needs to be serviced. There is a component located in the lf of the engine compartment called a receiver drier. It soaks up the moisture in the freon so the gases can work the way they are supposed to. On this unit there should be 2 switches(I believe they were combined into one switch in 98. 1 switch is a temp switch that operates your electric fans, the other is a compressor cutoff switch. Assuming the compressor is not coming on-take a fused wire and bridge the 2 contacts- If the compressor does not come on at all there is another problem(it is not low on freon. On the condenser there is a high side port(it is the bigger of the 2)By the brake master Cyl.(lf of the engine compartment thereshould be a smaller low side valve in line with the fuel cooler hose. Usually you can hook up a machine to the low port and **** freon in through that port. Assuming you do not have a refrigerant machine. It is very self explanatory on the bottle of r 134a refrigerant which can be purchased at your local auto supply store. I would start with 1 lbs. and add dye with the freon in case there is a big leak. If the system is overcharged it will not cool properly. I believe the system capacity is approx. 2 lbs. Add a few ounces after the first pound until a/c system is cooling properly and the electric fans are also coming on when the system gets to high. If you get a can with a good Gage set on it you should see the high side between 150 and 2000 psi(fan coming on at max. press.) also the low side should read about 35. It is about the temp of the evaporator which is i=located in the dash and the blower blows through this component out through the vents. Hopefully I have been helpful.

Is your check engine light on? If it is then take it to a local auto parts store, they will usually put their scanner on it to check problems. Your light has to be on for a trouble code to pop up. It also could check all kinds of other functions as well. Have you changed all your filters, fuel, air etc.. have you ever cleaned the throttle body and MAF sensor. All kinds of crud can build up on the back of the throttle plate and the sensor. If the sensor gets covered it won't register the air flow correctly. check your spark plugs. a couple bad pugs will make your engine run like do do

Ran out of diesel now vehicle won't start


This is not unusual on a diesel. What happens is there is air in the system. If this vehicle has an electric fuel pump loosen line where fuel enters injection pump then turn ignition key to the on position and watch for fuel to appear and then quickly tighten line before turning off key. Then try to start. If does not have electric fuel pump will need a second person. One will loosen line and watch while other cranks vehicle until you get fuel and tighten line before the other person releases ignition switch unless vehicle starts first. If that doesn't do the job do this where line hooks onto each injector. Probably will not have to do this to all injectors but could run rough until all the air gets out of everything. I have farmed with diesel tractor for 25 years and dad I drove the gm vehicles with the 5.7. You normally don't start a diesel without bleeding the air out of the lines although some will self bleed most won't. Hope this does the trick.

Check to ensure your glow plugs are functioning properly.

Is the truck blowing a lot of white smoke during idle or initial start up? If so, you most likely have injectors that are not performing correctly, not allowing vehicle to start.

I need step by step instructions on replacing a fuel filter in a 1998 gmc 6.5 turbo diesel please


I got this from Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual. I bought it for my 6.2.
1. Remove the fuel filler cap and air cleaner assembly.
2. On filters without an air bleed screw, place a rag under the filter to soak up fuel and detach the lower clip FIRST to release pressure and then the top clip. They pop off with a screwdriver.
3. On filters with an air bleed screw (top passenger side) drain fuel from the filter by opening the screw first and the engine water drain valve (engine front near thermostat) if it has one. Detach the clips and remove filter.
4.Make sure the seating surface is clean and place new filter in position. On non-air bleed filters put the upper clip on FIRST. On air bleed filters secure both clips, then close the valve and attach a piece of hose to the bleed port into a pail.
5. Air must be purged BEFORE start up, so disconnect the pink wire from the top of the injector pump and crank the engine in 10 second cycles with a 30 second wait time until clear bubble-free fuel comes out the lower fitting or air bleed. Connect the lower clip on the non-air bleed , close the bleed hose and reconnect the pink wire.
6. Start the engine and let it idle for several minutes to purge any remaining air and check for leaks.
Hope this helps.
