Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

Adding R134A to my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

In reading the directions on the R134A canister, the illustration shows the compressor clutch spinning/rotating. On my vehicke, this clutch is not spinning. I bought the vehicle about two months and have not needed the a/c until recently. Is this likely a bad compressor?

Might be in the long run, but try adding the feron first, the system must have pressure in it for the compressor to come on, might take a can and a half before the compressor comes on, also sounds like you might have a leak, so look around when filling

Put more in. Keep adding untill it won't take any more. You can't over do it with those cans. It'll either work or you'll find the leak if it really has one.
