Question about 1997 Infiniti.5 J30

I'm trying to add refrigerant to my 1993 Infinit J30. I got the can of sealant and coolant mix from my local parts repair store, but the refrigerant doesn't seem to be leaving the can going into the car. Help?

    This is one of those size fits all cans and hose purchased at my local AutoZone. The car is running, and the air is blowing with the temperature set at its lowest and blowing full blast. I don't know if I'm at the right line though. I'm using the line nearest the wind sheild in the upper left corner when facing the car. There is another line in the lower right hand corner when facing the car near the front driver's headlight.

    There is a pressure guage on the hose attached to the can so I make sure I only charge to 1.65lbs recommended. As for the compressor, I have the car running so can I just assume the compressor is running or do I need to do something else to ensure that it's running?



    Also, there is a larger line with a cap on it that says High on it. It is larger. Is that the line I should be using? Thanks for all your assistance!!!

    Are you using the correct adapter in conjunction with your can, or is this "can" one of those one size fits all things with the plastic hookup.

THE CHARGING PORT IS IN THE LARGER OF THE TWO AC LINES, THE COMPRESSOR NEEDS TO BE RUNNING FOR THE CHARGE TO GO IN, DO U HAVE A AC PRESSURE GAUGE HOOKED UP, IF U OVER CHARGE THE SYSTEM U WILL DESTROY A $500 AC COMPRESSOR.

    LOOK AT THE COMPRESSOR, U CAN SEE IF IT IS RUNNING, IF IT IS NOT RUNNING THEN THAT ONE CAN WILL NOT BE ENOUGH TO FIX THE PROBLEM.

Do you have the car running while you are trying to charge the system?
And, do you have the can installed on the low side line (larger line)?
Let me know.
Regards

Just changed the water pump in my 96 dakota with 318,had to add water before to get it home,and can't get get all the coolant out of the block,just put a gallon of straight anti freeze in,because i pu


Yes you can.

It should be diluted to 50% water. This will give you the best freeze protection and the best heat transfer properties.

Over mixing can make it more difficult for the coolant to remove the heat from the engine. Under mixing will not provide enough freeze protection.

You can by a bubble tester from your local parts store. There are not accurate by any means but it will get you a "close enough" reading.

the best way to check coolant protection is with a refractometer.

My 98 ford ranger blow only hot air in the cool setting


your truck may be low on refrigerant.
afb6ce1c-e0b8-418a-869c-09d0d7f646a0.gif

you can buy a kit at Walmart fairly cheap, and do it yourself. it may take 2-3 cans of coolant. make sure you dont buy the kind with the sealer in the coolant. Because if you take it to a shop, they aren't happy about the sealant having to be separated.... most say the you should add the coolant on the low side. To make sure call a local shop and they should tell you. I put mine in on the low side.... Good luck

Coolant hose diagram


there are only 2 hoses an upper and lower rad hose and both are probably moulded hoses. buy new molded hos at local auto parts store or go to ford to get proper moulded hose. sorry but there is no diagram for hoses. If you are doing the job yourself invest in a Haynes repair manual also bought at local parts store

What kind of antifreeze should i use


you need to use vw/audi coolant. Go to either a Volkswagen or Audi dealership. IT's not cheap and comes as a concentrate (dilute 50/50), but you run the risk of growing cottage-cheese-like clumps in your cooling system if you mix a different type of coolant.

Thermostat replacment


I just did it. It is very easy. First buy a thermostat, a thermostat gasket, and some blue sealant (RTV) from any auto parts store.
The book says to drain the antifreeze, but I did not and just spilled a few ounces when I unconnected the coolant hose. On the driver side of the engine, there is a radiator hose that connects to the engine just under the wires for the spark plugs. There are two bolts. Remove the bolts and pull off the hose. Some coolant will leak. Remove the old thermostat and gasket. Note how the thermostat is oriented so you can replace the same way.
Put the gasket and thermostat back using some of the sealant and then re install the bolts and be sure to torque them down to 21 ft/lbs. It is not a bad idea to check the quality of your coolant at this time. Use an Antifreeze Hydrometer which is an inexpensive tester from your local auto parts store. Maintenance schedule calls for replacing your Antifreeze every 60 months. So if you havent done it in the last 5 years its not a bad investment in time and materials.
Remove the radiator cap and start up the engine. You have to wait for it to become hot for the thermostat to open up and circulate the coolant. Add additional coolant to the radiator. After it is circulating, replace the radiator cap and see if the temperature gauge is rising as expected.
Check for leaks again. Total cost is around 15-20 dollars. Feel good that you saved a few hundred bucks and only takes about 10-15 minutes.
Have fun.

Overheating and trying to locate the radiator and the reserve coolant tank. Don't know which is which?


The radiator is usually the black tank in front of the fan. It has a silver cap (DO NOT REMOVE WHEN HOT!!!) that you can take off when the car is cold to check if there's fluid in it. The reserve coolant tank is usually a white plastic and has a hose in to that connects to the radiator. It is used to catch the extra fluid that comes out of the radiator when it warms up becasue coolant expands when it's heated. The reservior should have two marks on the side of it. One for "max fill" and one for "add". Add coolant to it if it is below the "add" line. If it's extreamly low, you'll have to add coolant a coulpe times to level it off once air gets out of the system. Your best bet is to remove the radiator cap, top it off with the right antifreeze (you can get this pre mixed) and replace the cap. Then fill the reservoir with the right antifreeze to the max fill line and drive the car until it gets warm. About 10 minutes. Then top off as necessary. I do NOT recommend using plain water to do this. If you use water it can freeze and do extensive damage to your engine. Go to your local auto parts store and ask them for the correct antifreeze. Ask them how to mix it or purchase the pre mixed kind.

I NOTICED AN ANTIFREEZE LEAK THIS AM IN MY 2002 CHRYSTLER VOYAGER. SHOULD I TRY A STOP LEAK PRODUCT FIRST AND IF SO, WHAT KIND? ALSO, WHAT KIND OF ANTIFREEZE SHOULD I USE IF I NEED TO ADD SOME. IT DOES...


I would not use stop leak, I would try and locate the leak as it may just be from a hose which is an easy fix. If you can't locate it I would consider purchasing the UV dye for your coolant system then using a black light and you will be able to easily find the leak. As far as coolant if you go to your local auto parts store they have coolant that is made to be added to any kind of coolant and will be safe for your vehicle. Just make sure to note if it is pre mixed or not, if it is not you should be diluting it with 1 part coolant 1 part water.
Thanks,
Lee
