Question about 2000 Chevrolet Impala
If you are using the small cans, it will take a while to charge.On average it usually takes me around a half hour to an hour to charge using those darn cans. A 30 lb bottle go quite quickly though. Turn the vehicle on and place the a/c in the on position, place the 134a can near, but not on the exhaust manifold so it keeps it warm and buils pressure to push it into the system. You know when it's done because you can feel the condensation on the outside of the can. After 1 can it should click on. This system takes around a can and a half - 3/4.

There's not really a diagram for the actual removal and installation. A good repair manual might list steps like these: First, your system needs to be purged of the freon. Next, unplug the AC clutch/pulley assembly at the front of the compressor. Remove the belt, then the AC lines on the compressor (usually in the back), then unbolt the AC from any mounting bracket(s) and remove. To avoid having to press on and off the clutch/pulley assembly you might want to make sure you're buying a complete compressor assembly. Read and follow those directions concerning oil for the compressor. After installing the new AC, reconnect the lines with new "O" rings. Most if not all compressor manufacturers will not honor any warranty unless you change out your orifice tube (also called an expansion valve) and accumulator (aka the dryer) at the same time. Recharge the system with the appropriate amount and type of freon, most likely R-134a.
