Question about 2001 Dodge Durango

3 Answers

Have 134a refrigerant and shop where I bought it said owners manual will have the how to instructions. Unfortunately it doesn't. I see on the line there is a stem to screw the hose into but want to make sure there is no other stem where the refrigerant should be added

    Great thanks for the information. I did find the low pressure side and will recharge tomorrow. Should the car and a/c be on or off while recharging. I want to make sure I'm doing it right. Of course if this doesn't work it's off to the shop.

No,you won't find it in the owner's manual. It charges through the low pressure side,which is the larger of the 2 available ports. You can't hook it up wrong. I suggest you buy a Hayne's manual for the truck. It has 90% of any answer you might need. A/C can be tricky to fix for the novice. If charging doesn't work,take it to the shop.

The refrigerant is added to the low pressure and larger diameter size hose. There are two lines coming off the compressor, and the high pressure line is smaller in diameter than the low pressure side.
The Refrigerant filler hose will clip onto the low side hose like an air chuck fits an air hose.

134a systems do not use screw on connectors for filling. This system uses a quick connect with a built in tap to charge 134a.

My A/C doesn't seem to be cooling very well on my 2006 Kia Spectra. I bought some R-134A, but can't find where to check the pressure and put any in if it is needed. Where is all this located...


follow the lines from the compressor each line should have a fitting with a screw on cap the hose you bought with the R134 should only fit the low pressure side just make sure you got the hose with a gauge.

Hi, there are two lines coming out of the compressor, one is larger than the other, the larger one is low pressure side or suction side for refrigerant , the port is in that line under a cap , possibly blue, possibly marked with an L for low to be be removed while adding refrigerant, engine running , A/C ON ,use eye protection and gloves.

Just wondering if the a/c can be recharged with a kit or not?


1990? is that r-12? you would see a sticker under the hood or somewhere in the engine bay. Do not try to refill this with those kits. Those kits usually say 134a and its not compatable. If the refrigerant is indeed for your car; you would power up a/c on max full fan and fill it through the low side (thicker refrigerant line). It usually has a blue cap on it. Sometimes you have to hunt it down just trace the lines from the compressor. Do not overfill. Follow directions carefully. I would get a refrigerant preassure guage.

AC STOPPED BLOWING COLD; ONLY BLOWS ON MAX MANUAL SETTING


Your AC is low on refrigerant; The AC compressor needs a minimum amount of regrigerant to run. If and when it does run (while low on refrigerant) the air coming out of the vents will not be cold. The refrigerant you require is R-134A and is available over the counter but if you are the least bit unsure as to how to add refrigerant, taking it to a garage that does AC recharging would be your best play. If you want to try to add refrigerant on your own you will need the following, 1LB can of R-134A, an AC hose adapter to deliver the refrigerant, and preferably an AC pressure guage to ensure you are not overfilling the AC line which will damage the system.

AutoZone.com has lots of information like this. Unfortunately, they want engine size and other information I don't have before providing the information. Here's the link:

Also, check the owner's manual. I changed a headlight in a car last week and was surprised to find that the owner's manual had detailed instructions.

E36 (1993+) A/C Condenser Replacement & System Recharging Procedure

DISCLAIMER:
It is illegal to vent R-134a in to the atmosphere. If your car has residual R-134a in the system, you must take the car in to have it professionally evacuated. Legalities aside, R-134a is toxic! Wear gloves and eye protection when dealing with this stuff. Note, this procedure is for R-134a cars only! This means 93+ E36s. I am not responsible for anything. Below is an account of how I did it and it may not work for you …

Ok, disclaimers aside – this job is easy. I mean really easy. Just be careful. There are a lot of steps though …

SITUATION:
I bought my ’93 E36 with a busted condenser as diagnosed by a dealer. Didn’t care at the time, Sandy Hago has great weather (especially where I live) . Anyway, I saw a condenser on ebay and decided to pick it up. A couple months later, I was ready …

DIAGNOSIS:
If your system has pressure in it, get it evacuated professionally. There are many shops that will do this and even tell you where your leak is (they use a die and a black light). My car had no pressure in it, so this step didn’t apply to me.

STUFF YOU’LL NEED:
1. A/C condenser (used, oem doesn’t really matter that much). Expect to pay less than $150. Dealer price is $450+
2. A/C receiver/dryer (oem). Ebay has ‘em for about $45. Dealer price is $125+.
3. Gaskets. Refer to the following picture for which ones. Caution! The ETK is wrong (at least for my car) on this. The dealer was also wrong. Overbuy if you must. About $40 (I know, what a rip). I ended up getting 4 #6s and 4 8s.
4. Manifold Gauge set for R-134a. Should have a blue gauge and hose (low pressure), red gauge and hose (hi pressure) and yellow hose (refrigerant supply/vacuum). About $75-$100.
5. Vacuum pump (oil based preferred). Don’t know where to get one. Maybe it can be rented. I borrowed one from a friend. They run for $250 I hear.
6. 3 cans (12oz) of R-134a and 1 can (8.5oz) of refrigerant oil. Available at any parts store. Total cost = $40.
7. Usual set of tools – Philips screwdrivers, hex sockets, ratchet.
8. six pack. I hate American beer, Rolling Rock is an exception though.
Total (if you buy everything) = $(150+45+40+100+250+40+10) = ~ $640.
Total (if you know someone with a pump and manifold (or rent)) = $(150+45+40+40+10)= ~ $290
Total (if you’re lucky like me ) = $(85+$40+$25+$30+10) = $190 (ebay – condenser/receiver-dryer, friend had the pump and manifold, gaskets – I know the parts guy at the dealership, kragen sale on R-134a and oil)
Total (dealership) = $1000+ !!!
