Well, If you want to do the job correctly, you need to properly recover the freon and then evacuate the system before recharging. Failure to do so is ILLEGAL for the recovery part. EPA laws forbid knowingly releasing freon into the atmosphere. There are some hefty fines to pay if the authorities were to find out. Not to mention that I really don't appreciate people who knowingly and willingly pollute the air that I breath. - take that as you will.

For the evacuation part, failure to properly evacuate your system before recharging will leave moisture in the system that can destroy your new compressor. If that happens, you won't be saving any money!The air that is left in the system will take up room in the system that is needed for a proper freon charge and can adversely affect how well your system cools when you are finished.

Here is a possible alternative. Take it to a shop just for recovery and evacuation. The labor charges will not be that much. In fact, some shops will do the recovery for free if you tell them they can just keep any freon that is recovered. You need to do a recovery to remove the freon from the system anyway so nothing blows up in your face when you disconnect system components. Then you can return to the shop after replacing the compressor and drier fo an evacuation. This is a good idea also because the system can be checked for leaks by evacuating and seing if the system holds vacuum. That way you won't be wasting any freon dumping it into a leaking system.
Then you can recharge the system yourself using one of the kits available at your local parts store.

On my BMW 325XI Wagon, the ac is not cooling, the drier, expansion valve, compressor & ac control module have been replaced. Starts to cool as low as 65 degrees & then compressor shuts off.

sounds like unproper ac evacuation before charging the freon to your ac system. do a proper evacuetion to the system check the ac compressor oil charge the proper freon & amount check the vehicle tag for the amount of freon under the wood close to the radiator

You can't not discharge freon into the air, against the law, you need a mechine to evacuate and vac the system, you can go to a garage and have them lok at the A/c system for around $50 includes 1 lb. freon, they will let you know what is wrong.

I put freon in my buick park avenue and it only took a lil bit and is still blow hot

u should first evacuate ur system down to vacuum bfore adding freon. chances are system is full of air,therefore not allowing full charge to enter ac system. also make sure ur clutch is engaging at the compressor, u can see wen its on and wen its off.

Heater core replacement, 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Why do I have to evacuate the freon?

you need to evacuate the freon because in order to get the heater core out you also need to remove the evaporator for the AC. (great design huh?)

I have 2001 Odyssey have AC problems it didn't blow out the Freon and it just got hot stuffs when I turn on the AC. What is issue with it?

One of two things.

1. The system was not properly evacuated out, ( vacuum pump ). Or, the wrong refrigerant was used. There should be a tag on the compressor as to what that system should be filled with. Re-evacuate and refill with correct refrig#.

My ac does not work at low rpm, when you get the rpm's up the ac

If there is air in the system you will need to recover all of the refrigerant (freon) from the system this is done with a machine called a recovery unit.Then the system will need evacuated this is done with a vacuum pump putting the system in a vacuum will remove moisture and air from the system,the epa requires a minimum of 4" of vacuum for MVAC (motor vehicle air conditioning). If you are not familiar with this you need to take it to someone who has the proper equipment for this type of work. Air is one possible cause, other things that cause this are: a malfunctioning expansion valve, a dirty condensing coil (located in front of the radiator),a faulty clutch fan will not pull enough air across the condensing coil at an idle, if the system is low on freon,and if the low pressure switch is malfunctioning.I strongly suggest you take it to some one who has been trained or is experienced in trouble shooting ac systems.I hope this information is useful if you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask.

Where to put the freon on a 2000 lincoln ls v8??

it is located on the bottom of the vehicle. you must take the driver's side tire off and the inner skirt to get to it. you don't have to have a professional do it. go to your local auto parts store and get a kit. follow the directions and you will be fine.

Have a dodge truck and a jeep cherokee with the same problem, system is charged and compressor is working but only hot air??

since the AC freon is held in the system by oversized tire valves; they leak.
Please check your pressure. If you try to refill; the air in the system; caused by the leak; will prevent the freon going in (air turns to ice) unless you vacuum evacuate the system or, you could have the system checked repaired and, refilled by a certified auto AC shop.
