Re gas air conditioning Lexus LS430

The gas your talking of is Freon 134a bought in 1 pound cans with a kit to allow you to regfill the system using the kits low pressure port connector and install a 1 pound can to see if all is well before you add too much more.......the whole system usually holds only 2- 2-3/4 cans empty.

How to install a new air conditioning compressor

There is danger working with high pressure freon. Make sure to wear eye protection and gloves.

The first problem is that you have to release the old freon.
You can rent equipment for this, or give the freon to a shop that can capture it.

Then you have to disconnect the belt, hoses, wire, and hold down bolts.
If the new pump does not come with a clutch/pulley, then you would have to switch from the old one, but AC clutches tend to be somewhat difficult to remove or require a special tool depending. That are all different.

Read the instructions with the new compressor as to how to install the oil that should come with it.

They reverse the order things were taken off.
Evacuate the system to remove air and moisture with a rented vacuum pump.
Install freon with a hose from the can to the thicker, low pressure, valve, with the engine running and AC on.

But how do you know you need a compressor?
You could just have a leak and are low on freon, which you could tell by bubbles in the sight glass.
Have you put a set of gauges on and seen too little difference between the high and low side?
Are you sure the clutch is working and pulley center spinning?

2003 suzuki sx awd. during hot days 22 celsius, turn on a/c and loud rattling noise starts when car is at standstill at traffic lights. no rattling when on the move with a/c on. any good diagnostics will...

This hjas a possible two part problem, the first part is the a/c compressor has a clutch on the end of the shaft and is engaged with the a/c compressor switch turned on, which means while the car is running, you turn on the a/c and walla, you get cold air(as long as it is fully charged), the belt drives this clutch which in turn spins the inside of the compressor and starts to mechanically **** freon into it through means of the low(suction) side, the larger diameter port, once low pressure freon either 134a for everything built after 1994 or freon r12 for cars built before 1994 enters the compressor it is then compressed into a high pressure liquid which has a high pressure test port that is always smaller in diameter then the low side (fill) port.
When the clutch is engaged, it will only slightly rattle after it gets a few thousand miles on it however as the vehicle gets more useage and the a/c gets more useage(considered extreme condition useage) more use then normal vehicles would otherwise get, the clutch starts to wear out causing this rattle. A clutch head puller is used to remove the clutch can't do it without the proper tools, the belt must come off before doing the replacement.
Any parts store will have the tools and the clutch, you don't have to release any freon for this repair.
Another reason for a rattle could be the a/c system is low on freon and oil.
Buy a freon charge kit with a one pound can of 134a freon + oil combo and with the car running and a/c on high blow full cold attach the charge hose and freon into the low side port, rattle should cease soon as the vehicle reaches is full charge, should't take more then 2 pounds(cans) of freon, system hold 2 3/4 pounds empty each can is one pound.
Happy Motoring!!

How do I fix a Air condition blow out hot air?

Go to your local auto parts purchase a a/c charge kit for about $69.00, find the low pressure(suction) fill port, there are two ports in every a/c system one is a low pressure side used primarily to fill a system with freon 123a or the like and it is the larger valve mounted on the line, then there is the dangerous high side valve, this is a smaller diameter valve mounted to a smaller diamet a/c line, this is under extreme pressure so donot attempt to fill this high side with freon as it can backfire on you and cause injury.
The low side fill kit will not fit on the high side port so thank godness for that.
start the vehicle put the a/c on full cold high blow fan speed, start filling the low side with a can of 123a freon+oil additive, which equals one pound of freon and check the inside a/c vents, getting cold? If its perfect then you are done, the system may have a very small slow leak and if it only takes a one pound can to fill it once or twice a year you are ok, if it takes more you may want to add a second pound can of freon 134a containing a dye additive that will work its way into the system and show you where the leaks are by exposing a color once it hits the air coming out of the systems defective seals etc.,also they sell a sealer + freon one pound can that can be used to try to fix the leak without having to get too expensive on the repairs.
A car's air conditioning system only hold like 2 3/4 pounds of freon, so in the event you happen to over fill the system a high pressure blow valve usually mounted on the a/c compressor will purge off the excess, but let me warn you they blow off without any warning and can startle you. Always think safety first, wear protective equipment. Work Smart, Work Safe.
Happy Motoring!!!

Adding freon to 2002 mustang how much

If the system is empty, look for information on the hood or somewhere in the engine compartment and it would tell you how many ounces of freon the system holds. If the system is empty this is how much you should add to make it full. If the system is not empty, hookup gauges and filled the system with the compressor or air conditioning running. Pressure on the low side should be between 30 and 75 pound. Good luck.
