Question about 1987 Honda Accord
Hello Friend: Recharging your A/C System:
SAFETY GOOGLES RECOMMENED You don't want this in your Eyes or anywhere Else Really.
To do it yourself you'll find Facing Vehicle with hood open
Look up on the Passenger Sise Fire Wall.
You'll See a Plastic Cover which is your A/C Evasporator Cover.On the Right Side of that Fairly Good Sized Cover .
You'll see 2-Caps 1-will have a (H) on it CAUTION Do not use or even bother that one.
You'll want to Use the one Right Next to It with a(L) on it the (L) is the Low Side or (Suction Side)
Thats the one to Recharge your A/c. Remove the Plastic Cap With the (L) on it.
You'll see a Valve like a Tire Valve Core. Same Thing it lets R-34 Refrigerant in ,but will not let it Out.If the Valve is Good.
Since you Doing This yourself I recommend Strongly that you Buy a R-34 Recharge Kit that Comes with a Gauge.
The R-34 Kit you'll have a Hose on it Leading to a Quick Connect Valve.
Now STOP here a minute Go Start your Vehicle Turn the A/C on High or Maximum Cool,and the Fan Swith on High.
Now Shake the can of R-34 Up Good Turn it Upside Down.
Then with 2-Fingers Pull Back the Quick Connect at the end of the Hose and Fit it Over the LOW SIDE Valve Core.
Now on Top of the R-34 There a T-Handle /or a Knob..
Turn the T-Handle ALL the WAY in Clockwise until it STOPS. It Has now Punchured a Hole in the Top of thje R-34 Can.
Since you already have the Quick Connect on the (L) Side.
Now Turn the Handle on top Counter Clockwise.
Watch the Gauge as your Turning Clockwise.
When you see the Gauge Move towards the GREEN ;
Keep a Close Eye on Gauge Make sure you Don't Pass the GREEN MARK into The RED .Stay in The Green.
If You Have the Needle on the Gauge in the Green Close to the RED BUT DON"T LET the GAUGE GO INTO THe RED !
Keeping Shaking Can during this Recharge Process.
NOW Screw the T-Handle ALL the Way Back Clockwise to Seal the Hole that it Puntured in The R-34 Can Top.
Now Take 2-Fingers and Take the Quick connect Off. Replace the Cap.
Your Done. You Should Have COLD Air inside Unless you Have Other A/C System Problems.
This will Recharge your System if ALL else is Good on It.
