SOURCE: can i recharge the air conditioning in my 2001

yes you can! get an r134a hose and 2 or 3 cans of r134a refrigerant. Find the low side port which has a black or blue cap on it (unless it got thrown away) and use the 'quick connector' while the can is screwed on to the other side of the hose.

You can get a recharge kit for maybe $35 at walmart, which has 1 can of freon which might be all you need to get the cold back into your a/c system.

Make sure that the compressor turns and spins with the belt, and also that the fan turns on at the radiator when you put the a/c on high fan and the coolest setting.

The pressure should range anywhere from 25 to 45 psi when you do this procedure, and if the compressor is not turning the pressure should be 75 to 100 psi on a hot day.

Hope this helps!

I have a 2001 pontiac grand am se v6 . The service engine soon light came on and i got a free diagnostic ran and it brought up these codes; P0443, P0449, and P0141.


PO443, Evaporative Emission Control System Purge Control Valve Circuit Malfunction
PO449, Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Valve/Solenoid Circuit Malfunction
PO141, Oxygen Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2).
I don't understand why the free diagnostic didn't come with a service recommendation?
P.S. I hope that you know when one of your headlights are out!

2001 PONTIAC GRAND AM SE, WON'T CRANK,RAN MY GAS LOW


Sounds like air in fuel line. Purge fuel line. By "crank", do you mean engine spins but won't catch? Try starter fluid in intake.

I have a 2001 grand am se p0440 code comes up


This indicates that a part of the EVAP control system is no longer fuctioning correctly. The EVAP system consists of many parts, including (but not limited to) the gas cap, fuel lines, carbon canister, purge valve, and other hoses. The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage. Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.
Causes:
A code P0440 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
  • The gas cap is not installed or working properly
  • The purge solenoid has failed
  • The canister is plugged and not working properly

With a P0440 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the code, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses
  • Inspect for damaged or disconnected hoses around the Evap purge solenoid
  • Check and/or replace the sensor
  • Check and/or replace the purge valve
  • Have a professional use a smoke machine to detect leaks
