A/c service/replacement. Every summer I need to

A/c service/replacement. Every summer (DC area) I need to recharge my system. I have gone to svc sta mechanix, independent mechanix, chain mechanix. Nobody tells me there is a leak. This can't be right. Should I continue this recharging cycle, or look to replace the system? If I replace, with what?

If the system requires a recharge every summer there is most definately a leak. If the leak is small enough to last the whole summer then it may be worth it to just continue recharging it every year. Some a/c repairs can be very expensive. For example the evaporator core is behind the dash board on most vehicles. If this were to leak, like it does on many jeep products, it could cost $1000 - $1500 to properly repair. Now if the leak was small enough that it lasted for the season. It would take about 10-15 years for it to be more economical to repair the leak then it would to just recharge the system every year. You need to figure out where the leak is to determine what you should do.

You simply need to go to your nearest repair shop, have them recharge the system (roughly $89.99 depending on your area). At that time they can determine if any of your A/C components need replaced. Hopefully it just needs a recharge though. Good luck.

My 2008 Cobalt svc tire monitor light came on and it wont go away. there is nothing wrong with the LR tire. but it wont let me see the tire pressure i checked the psi in it and its perfectly fine and hasnt...

Unfortunaltly you can't turn the light off unless the repair is made. It is a safety feature. And yes, the little monitor inside the rim has gone bad or cracked. These are easily replaced by a tire technision, but the cost of the (TPMS)tire moniter is pricey.

99 model S80. A/C only operates for a short time before blowing warm. Cooling fan operates but not at full speed and doesn't come on with A/C compressor. Engine doesn't overheat - the issue is lack of A/C...

sounds like the clutches are going or gone - this will need to be looked at by a pro -- sadly - the compressor sounds bad - you can 'override' the switch too - but I would not recommend this as you will surely soon burn everything up -
a 10 year old system needs work usually so it isn't a bad thing.

also - this is free - - take down the vin number and ask the local dealer if there have been any recalls or service bulletins

1998 GMC Sierra Pickup Air Condition will not hold Freon Charge. Noticed Seal missing on valve to replace Or could it be something else . Thanks

This is possible as the cap with an o-ring inside is considered the primary seal and not neccessarily the schrader valve on these service ports. I think alot of problems in this area could be avoided by the use of these caps but for some reason they are not that important to many as they are seemingly always gone,off,missing or not re-installed after services.However,I would not assume this is the only leak therfore system inspection and leak checking is definatley in order. A flouro-dye oil charge that detects leaks quite well under black light and electronic "sniffing" may be a corrective measure at this point and finally once the systems charge is recovered,insure the system will hold full vacuum(near 30 in depending on altitude) for a indefinate amount of time before recharging system to level.

My ac wont work... and it just quit working... and everything still works... is it the relay switches??

Check the fuse first to the A/C to make sure it's has not blown. The other thing to is the system may be low on R143a. If you not to familiar with recharging the system you can take it most shop now and have it serviced. Call around first for the best price to recharge the system. You can buy a recharge kit for around $50.00 but that's around the same price to recharge the system and you don't have to worry about over charging the system causing damage. The recharge kit can be bought at Wal Mark or any large parts store like Auto Zone. Here is a link on how to recharge the system your self if that's the method you wish to go. Good luck and hope this helps, Keep me posted. be glad to cool all summer.

Do not field out the field wire.
Is the alternator ight coming on?
If you rev engine, does charging system start working?
There is a resister wire that provides voltage to the field circuit. If the resister is bad, you will only get voltage to the field through the dash alt. light bulb when you push enough voltage through it.

I don''t have 1993, but here is 96:

Generator with Integral Rear Mount Regulator, Internal Fan Type With the key in the RUN position, voltage is applied through the charge indicator lamp I circuit to the voltage regulator. This turns the voltage regulator on, allowing current to flow from the battery sense A circuit to the generator field coil. When the engine (6007) is started, the generator (GEN) (10346) begins to generate alternating (AC) current which is converted to direct (DC) current by the rectifier internal to the generator. This current is then supplied to the vehicle's electrical system through the battery positive voltage (B+) terminal located on the rear of the generator. Once the generator begins generating current, a voltage signal is taken from the stator and fed back to the voltage regulator S circuit, turning off the charge indicator/lamp. With the system functioning normally, the generator output current is determined by the voltage at the A circuit. This voltage is compared to a set voltage internal to the voltage regulator, and the voltage regulator controls the generator field current to maintain proper generator output. The set voltage will vary with temperature and is typically higher in the winter than in the summer, allowing for better battery recharge. With the system functioning normally, the generator output current is determined by the voltage of the A circuit (battery sense voltage). The A circuit voltage is compared to a set voltage internal to the voltage regulator, which controls the generator field current to maintain proper output. The set voltage will vary with temperature and is typically higher in the winter than in the summer, allowing for better battery recharge in the winter and reducing the chance of overcharging the battery in the summer. A fuse link is included in the charging system wiring on all models. The fuse link is used to prevent damage to the wiring harness and generator if the wiring harness should become grounded, or if a booster battery with the wrong polarity is connected to the charging system.

  • System Does Not Charge
  • Loose or worn drive belt.
  • Open/voltage drop in Circuit 38 (BK/O).
  • Open/voltage drop in Circuit 36 (Y/W).
  • Open/high resistance in Circuit 904 (LG/R).
  • Damaged regulator.
  • Damaged generator battery

I have a 1999 ford f-150 w/approximately 80300 miles and the svc engine soon light came on this morning. I accidentally used summer coolant vs. multiseasonal coolant. Would this cause the light to come on?...

the coolant would not cause the service engine light to come on, this light is telling u that a problem has been detected in the power-train controls or sensors, this can be the result of many things, a loose gas cap will cause it as well as a defective Oxygen sensor or an engine miss and many other issues, go to Autozone or Kragen Auto and have them run a trouble code test on the system, it is free, then post the code back here for me to look at it..

It needs recharging probably. Its $60 or so at a garage or about $20 to do it your self.

It means the system is leaking though and its likely that recharging will get you through a summer but you may need to recharge again the following summer due to the leak.

If the leak is bad the fixing it is going to likely be expensive but for that you will need to charge the system with a cannister of refrigerant that has leak detector in it to find out whats leaking - and more than likely a garage may be better suited to do this for you unless you are familiar with working on your own cars.
