What refrigerant should be used for a 2004 Mazda Tribute

You want to read this slowly... and all the way through...

Most likely R134a...

but there is a reason the vehicles are REQUIRED to post the refrigerant under the hood...

Because mixing REFRIGERANTS can be a very costly mistake.

Look for the refrigerant type under the hood...!!

It might be different.

1986 Pontiac Fiero. What has to be done to be able to use R-134 refrigerant?

There are simple conversion kits that basically just replace the service ports to use the r-134 type hoses, but it is best to have a pro evacuate system and flush it, draw a vacuum, add correct oil and freon. If the system has been empty or dead a while, best to replace dryer and orifice tube or expansion valve as well.

05 f150 how much freon does it hold let's

Approximately 2.75 pounds for a gas or diesel and additionally, 7oz of oil for gas, 10oz of oil for diesel. Some refrigerants have the mix/ratio of oil already in it.
If you convert or use 134a you should use only 80%
or 2.6 pounds. Remember overfilling is not always better. Too much and you blow warm air.

Where do I add the new r 410a refridgerant on 2004 Pontiac vibe?

410a cannot be used in a automotive system it will cause damage to your compressor, other other a/c components.
410a is used for home use a substitute for R-22
see below definition.

Although the United States Environmental Protection Agency has mandated that R-22 along with other hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) be phased-out in the United States, few window-mounted air conditioners are available that use R-410A. However, all of the largest central air conditioning systems manufacturers in the United States offer R-410A. As an alternative to window-mounted systems, a ductless "split" system is available which uses R-410A refrigerant, and can be installed with a 3-inch hole through the wall (or window opening).[4] R-410A has replaced R-22 as the preferred refrigerant for use in residential and commercial air conditioners in Japan and Europe.
Parts designed specifically for R-410A must be used as R-410A operates at higher pressures[5] than other refrigerants. Thus R-410A systems require service personnel to use different tools, equipment, safety standards and techniques.[6] Equipment manufacturers are aware of these changes and require the certification of professionals installing R-410A systems. In addition the AC&R Safety Coalition has been created to help educate professionals about R-41-A system.
manufactures recommendations for vehicle

  • R-134a is the only approved refrigerant for use in this vehicle. The use of any other refrigerant may result in poor system performance or component failure.
  • To avoid system damage use only R-134a dedicated tools when servicing the A/C system.
  • Use only Polyalkylene Glycol Synthetic Refrigerant Oil (PAG) for internal circulation through the R-134a A/C system and only 525 viscosity mineral oil on fitting threads and O-rings. If lubricants other than those specified are used, compressor failure and/or fitting seizure may result.
  • R-12 refrigerant and R-134a refrigerant must never be mixed, even in the smallest of amounts, as they are incompatible with each other. If the refrigerants are mixed, compressor failure is likely to occur. Refer to the manufacturer instructions included with the service equipment before servicing.

I have a 1993 Pontiac Bonneville SE and need to know if the freon is R134 compatible or does it use R12?

Pop your hood and look at a sticker in front of your radiator for the Capacity of Freon in pounds and/or ounces. There should be a sticker stating if it's R-134A or not. Insofar as R-12 and R-134 being compatible, NO! Not only are the properties different but they also use a different type of refrigerant (freon), oil. If mixed, it could destroy your compressor and send broken "vanes or valves" throughout your entire A/C system. If still unsure, call your local Dealership, but I'm pretty sure you take R-134A.

Best of Luck,

I installed a new a/c compressor on a 91 geo metro.Where does the compressor oil go into the compressor at?

The compressor's oil is mixed with and circulates with the refrigerant. R134a refrigerant can be purchased with or without oil mixed into it. There are also separate oil 'chargers' that inject oil without the refrigerant.
