The water system and the Freon system are two different things. You would just use antifreeze in the heater core and control valves for this system.

The Freon system should have remained sealed unless it was disconnected to move it out of the way. It is usually recommended to replace the dryer (black oblong tank) whenever you open the Freon system. If the Freon system was opened, you need to borrow a Vacuum Evacuator pump from an Autoparts store and run it to pull out all the air inside the lines and create a Vacuum for the Freon to be added.

There are special pliers and "O" rings for the joint unions.

Next, for the Freon system, you would need to jump the low pressure connector switch to activate the compressor clutch to draw in the Freon. It is going to take several cans of Freon to recharge an empty system. Not all cans are the same size, and I recommend 1 can having at least some oil charge be added to the fill. Like car sizes, each car has different amounts of room for the A/C equipment lines. The Manufactuer should have a label stuck around the fan shroud to show how many ounces the system will take. More is not better. You will get into partial can situations, but Freon can stay in the dispenser can if you have good equipment to leave attached.

You use pressure gauges which can also be borrowed from Autozone, for instance, and used to measure the amount of Freon you have installed. Once you have put in 1 can of Freon, you may be able to reconnect and remove the jumper wire from the low pressure harness. The A/C compressor clutch should continue to cycle and draw in Freon when it does cycle.

Overcharging the system will break hoses and may damage seals. There is a high pressure cut-off switch. So you want to charge the system to have pressure between the low and high pressure cut-offs to work at optimum efficiency.

I hope my solution helps you.

Describe your 2005 explorer ac wont blow cold air Problem

the problem is probably low freon there should be a place on one of the hoses to check the freon level. you can usually get a gage when you buy the freon. if the freon isn't the problem than the problem is probably with the compressor. I would check the freon first.

Air condtioner has a bad smell causing headache

Whether as a gaseous or liquid coolant, Freon aids in refrigeration, air conditioning and maintaining aerosol contents under pressure. Not only can this toxic chemical expose the earth to excessive ultraviolet rays, but the substance can also sicken those who inhale it in an enclosed atmosphere.

Detecting the signs and symptoms of a Freon leak will protect lives, ground water and air quality.
Cardiac arrhythmia can signify the presence of leaking Freon. A person without a history of irregular heartbeats might suddenly detect heart palpitations and faulty blood circulation upon exposure to a Freon leak. The blood circulation problems may also lead to numbness in the limbs.

General Illness
  • A Freon leak can cause nausea, headaches, bouts of regurgitation and general disorientation. Confused thinking and trouble walking or coordinating movements also may result. Severity of illness depends on the amount of Freon released and the length of time exposed. A fire department can provide solutions and guidance for anyone detecting a Freon leak and suffering from its effects.

    How do i put freon in my 1988 chevy s10?

    Just start the engine and run your a/c. connect the hose (this hose is probably one you bought at the auto parts store along with your freon.) Relese the freon by screwing the object that is attached to the top of your freon can in and then out. Let the freon completely **** into system. You will know when your system is at the opporating level when your compressor stops clicking on and off and stays on. Most systems take only two 16 ounce cans of freon to be charged.

    95 Cadillac seville added 2 cans of freon and unhooked battery cable, still on cold air and car states freon low. How many cans does it need if empty?

    2 lbs of freon is all you need if empty, replace your low pressure switches, sit on a thin a/c line running on top of your fire wall from one end to the other, you will need to recover the freon before you can replace these two sensor's. These sensor's are bad that's why it reads on your dash low freon.

    Replaced AC Condenser and Evacuated System.. Holds negative pressure but when adding the freon after the oil all the freon doesnt seem to empty out of the can. And noticed that the Compressor hasnt...

    When you add the freon turn the can upside down and it will push the oil and freon out of the can. If you have it up it sends freon but no oil.
    You also may need more freon before the compressor will kick in.
