Question about 1989 Toyota Corolla 2 Door

A/c wont accept coolant

My Dad was trying to put the new freon stuff in my 1989 toyota corolla. We bought the switchover kit. It wouldn't take the coolant. My Dad seems to think it is a fuse but we cannot locate the fuse for the A/C or whatever. I'm trying togfigure out a way to find out exactly what the problem was. It even had a little coolant in it so my Dad said it just probably didnt have enought freon in it to cool things off. AAnyway he emptied it and was tryng to add the new stuff and it would not take it. My question is....Where is the fuse for the compressor and is there a way I can tell what exactly the problem is, to tell if it is the compressor or what ahve you. I cannot afford a compressor....I mean HELLO I'm driving an 89 model car (but I love my toyota it is awesome ..They just don't make them like they used to) Anyways anyone got any tips on what I could possibly do to figure out whats wrong or how I can possibly bypass the compressor and what all does that entail. I would greatly appreciate the air..I mean help. :)

    Yes I am positive the can was punctured. The guy at the autoparts place even tried it for us and said it is just not accepting hte coolant. He asked me if the A/C worked the alst time and I said I believe so. I jsut recently bought eh car off my sister and she had no issues then.

    Thanks tijerina for your reply but a little too much mechanical jargon for I was hoping for a "Oh the fuse is here and this will tell you if it is the comopressor or a fuse. We cannot locate where the fuse for A/C is on the car and i cannot locate any sort of diagram on the web. What did you mean by dye. Lol.

Hi, I have a toyota corolla 2e 1300 1989 model, I recently changed the gearbox and kits for the clutch master and slave Cylinders...... Now I have tried to bleed it to get clutch but it doesn't want to...

Did you bench bleed the MC before mounting it? If you have good pressure then it goes soft again then you still have air in the system or you have a leak that is sucking air into the system or your NEW MC is leaking internally.

Where do I get freon for my '89 DeVille?

Any good parts store can sell you conversion kit to convert it from the old stuff (Freon 12) to the new 134. You might still be able to find old stuff but it's outrageously expensive (and currently illegal)

On the 1989 Toyota Corolla with air cond., whitch side is the refill side to introduce a can of r-12? The smaller or larger hose side? Should the refill be done with the can upright-as a gas or upside down...

Your recharge hose/kit will only fit one side - check the fittings, and to answer your other question can should be upright so you fill with gas. Turning it upside down you have the chance of over-filling and blowing seals when freon expands.

1989 toyota corolla will not start

You have soaked all your electrical. All you can do is get an air hose and try to blow everything off as well as you can. Take apart what you can, and blow it out. If it doesn't go, you'll just have to wait.

check the clutch switch plug"two wires on the compressor under the hood" it might have come loose, if not start car and turn a/c on, see if clutch is spinning, if it is not look on coolant switch, see if the plug is secure on it"round silver looking canister that a/c lines go to"if everything else checks out then probably low on freon. go to wal-mart get DIY freon kit, charge it like the little gage tells you. make sure you hook it to the low pressure side, bigger freon lines, small lines are the high pressure. you may have to put a jumper wire on evaporator canister plug"on the silver canister i mentioned before, to get compressor to take freon charge
