If the compressor wOnt cycle, it means that the pressure is not correct. How much freon, (and what type) did you put in, and did you PULL DOWN (with vacuum) the system to about -29 inches before putting the freon in? Did you use manifold gauges? If so, what is the high pressure, and what is the low pressure, at what ambient temperature?

Leak in a/c system,installed 2 cans freon w/oil & stop leak.Can got cold once putting in temp. insice hot always.


Stop leak, thats great, now its going to cost even more to repair your a/c system. Take to a shop that does a/c and prepare to pay. its going to need a compressor, condenser, evaporator, drier, exp valve and possibly hoses.

My father passed away leaving me a 1991 linc town car. Air seems to work but does not blow cold. I know he never converted to new freon. could a simple conversion be the solution?


It is possible. It the problem is the compressor. It would be good to change the compressor, drier, and orifice tube. You will also need the conversion kit for the fittings. All of this can easily be bought at the auto parts store. Be sure to vacuum the system and add oil and the freaon. Changing over in the long run will be cheaper, plus you can always buy your own freon, where as leaving it R12, soemone else will need to do it for you and it will cost quite a bit for the freon. In order to convert, compressor, drier, orifice tube, oil, and freon will be about $210. Not a bad investment.

1990 Lincoln Town Car Blows only Hot Air


Be sure the compressor clutch is cycling. Also, check the orifice tube, evaporator and condensor for blockages. Freon level should be checked with manifold gauges and compared to specs.

HOW TO PUT FREON ON LINCOLN LS 2000


1--Turn your stearing wheel all the way to the left, so you can get to the a/c compressor, (compressor is under the car, on drivers side, near left front tire)
2 --On the drivers side, Jack up the car, a black cover under the car conceals the compressor, 2 little screws removes the cover, look for the compresser, left side near the front tire, once you remove the cover you can see the compressor.
3--there is a black or blue cap on the end of the compressor, this is where you input your refrigerant.
4-- turn your car on, turn AC on High
5. connect the the refrigerant tube to the compressor, and allow 5 to 10 min for it to go thru your cooling system.
6. check your ac for coldness.

hope this helps you good luck

Help with accumulator question.


The accumulator is 17 years old, therefore it would be smart to replace it while the A/C compressor
is being replaced. There are no special steps for removal or replacement of the accumulator just
be sure all the fittings are tight.

This is ''pops'' moore again!trying to save a $ You helped me before on the firing order.went to a/c guy.he tested system,said evaporator was bad and needed to be changed.his est.was my first born and a...


I assume he used a leak tester and found a leak in the evap which is inside the plenum housing. Need to remove the plenum to get access to the evap. big job. If you are technical, you could remove the plenum assembly and let him replace the evap & then let you out the plenum back in. Then take back to have him evacuate and recharge system.
