My 2003 hyundai santa fe had a busted ac hose that we are replacing tomorrow. do we need to use a vacum pump on the system or can we just recharge with r134a with out pulling a vacum?

Answer: NO... you must/need to vaccum the system to remove moisture from the system before you recharge it. Otherwise, you could damage the AC system

How do i recharge the a/c unit myself? The a/c does not seem to get cold anymore.

To properly recharge the air conditioning you need a vacume pumpand gagues.. Once the system is vacumed down you will know if their is a leek that must be repaired before rechargeing. if their are no leeks you are ready to install 134 refridgerant.

1999 ford expedition I am getting almost no heat in front or back. I have flushed out heatercore. I have change thermostat. When the engine is at 2.5 to 3,000 RPMs I get heat. No heat when it is idling....

Try the heater controles.There is a possibilaty with this expedition that the heater doors are not opening properly.When motor is at low RPM the vacum the motor pulls is low to.This vacum is what controls the doors and vent.You can pull vacum lines on and off ONE at a time and listen for the doors to open.There is also a good possibilaty the vent door contol switch at the dash could be bad.You would need a vacum gauge to test it though.

Trying to recharge a/c . which is low side

the Low side of any air conditioning system is the line within the set with the largest circumference. In any system there is the small line and the larger line. The small line carries liquid refrigerant back to the expansion valve from the compressor. The compressor compresses vapor into liquid. The liquid is obviously the high side, and to recharge the system, you need to pull a vacuum to remove all air water contaminants and then recharge by hooking up the the refrigerant (oriented to release gas not liquid) to the larger of the two line sets, this would be the expanded gaseous refrigerant heading back to the compressor to be compressed and cooled to return to a liquid state.

Engine light on . fault code p0411. air solenoid stuck shut. show

P0411 Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow Detected
p0411 is a generic code, probably a vacume leak,vacume hose broken check this first, check the air pump turn on the car but it needs to be cold, you should hear a high pitched whine, this is the air pump running,there are 2 hoses one suction one blowing thishose should be going from the air pump to the air cleaner disconnect that and see what the volume is should be pretty strong.
But mostly you probably have a broken vacume line somewhere

In a 1995 cirrus, where is the air compressor located and is it hard to fix?

it should be on the front side of the motor where the belt is and it is recommended that a shop evacuate the system. but then you can remove compressor and flush the system with compressed air then add pag oil and new compressor, then go back down to shop and have vacum test and freon added. it is alot cheaper.

The A/C on my 1999 GMC Sierra blows out warm, even hot air when it's idling, and tolerably coolish air when I'm driving at speed on the freeway. I thought maybe I would have to recharge it, but the gauge...

well it sounds like you have too much freon and or oil in the system you need to have it evacuated and vacumed down and fill with exactally what it calls for and you need to also check the action of the fan make sure enough air is comming through the front of the car

Front drive, 4 Wheel drive won't engage

that vacume line goes back to the transfer case, the end that goes behind the motor hooks to a steel tube so it does not get hot from the exhaust., my guess it should be hooked up so it will feed vacume to the vacume ball so it can lock in the axels. if you start the car and shift into 4 wheel drive and listen under hood you should hear a hissing sound, that is vacume, if you can't hear it there, you may have to craw under the right side to hear it, probably came unhooked underneith the car
