Look at the sticker under your hood or on the compressor. It should say r-134a. You can't find freon that easily anymore due to it being harmful to us and the environment. You need to use whatever is recommended by the manufacturer. Not doing so can result in a damaged a/c system and they are expensive to replace.

After 92'-93' all vehicles use R-134 freon which is availble in all autoparts stores.

Why is my ac van not turning on?


question don't have enough info. year make and model will help out. but it sounds like you might have a bad clutch on the ac compressor. or you might have no Freon in the system because you have a leak in the system itself you can get a can of Freon with dye in it and recharge the system. to do that though you need to trick the compressor to running. you just hook the hose onto the Low\suction side ( it is the smaller valve ) and let the system suck up the Freon. but make sure you get the Freon with the gauge and tube. so that you don't over charge the system. you can get what you need any parts store and an employee might help you out too.

Could be out of freon gas. If you add a can or two see if compressor turns. If out of gas you must trace down leak and repair. Check fuses in your owners manual also before checking freon. Attached is a picture of the hose available at any auto parts store to add a can of freon.

What freon goes in air condition?


This car originally contained R12, if you can find it you can use it. The other option if this has not already happened is you can convert the system from R12 to R134a, which is readily available, all auto part stores carry these kits. R12 AC fitting are threaded and R134a systems have slip on quick connect fittings.

If i am changing out a ac compressor at home. after i am done replacing it what is the best thing to do to recharge the system. i dont have a ac recovery machine an dont have the money to bring it to a...


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.

What type of freon is in GMC trucks of 1987?


R12.... In 1994 R134a was required, but some changed earlier. Yours may have been converted. If the service ports are threaded it still has R12. Hope this helps.

THE AC CLUTCH ENGAGES AND DISENGAGES EVERY FEW SECONDS


This usually indicates either low freon, too much freon or a clogged line causing a pressure problem.

The AC will not cool car on hot days. The fan blows air, but barely cools it.


If your AC cools the air at all, then it is probably not a serious problem ... you most likely need to have your AC system recharged. You can take it in to a mechanic to have it refilled (shouldn't be expensive or take a long time) or you can go to an auto parts store and do it yourself. When you are at the store, make sure you are getting the correct type of AC coolant (a lot of times it is still Freon ... but some auto-makers stopped using freon in the 90's ... the clerk at the auto-parts store should be able to tell you what type you need). If you are unsure how to fill the AC coolant, the clerks at the auto-parts store might be able to help, but if they can't grab a Haynes manual -- it has step-by-step directions and pictures to help you get the job done right.

No AC refrigerant in 1995 E250


The compressor has a valve, it lets out the old freon and this is where you charge with new freon. The truck should have a label under the hood possibly on top of grille. It will tell you what freon to use. You don't want to the wrong one. There are 2 types of freon. There is the older R22 that is for 94 and older vehicles, and R134A which is for the newer vehicles. You will have to look on your label, or as part store which kind. I believe it will be R134A
