Have you recently added R-19 refrigerant to your Jeep? The 1989 model base requires R-19 Freon, not the newer R-134A designed for the newer cars...Has your stock system been re-fitted for the new R-134A refrigerant? If cool but not cold, the system could be low...or need a clean/new orifice tube...Try for a free inspection in your area...

I used a small can of r 134a in my 2007 Ford 500 still not getting cold. What next?


Some things to check:

1. Is the compressor running?

2. Is the suction (where you added the refrigerant) line cold or
at least cool to the touch?

3. Is the system set to cooling inside the vehicle?

If you had to add refrigerant, there could be a leak somewhere. One small can of refrigerant is not enough if the system is empty. It will take around 5-6 one pound cans. However, the system should should be leak tested otherwise the newly added refrigerant will leak out.

If my a/c is now blowing warm air, could adding 134A refrigerant oil fix it?


It could, but before you add freon, check your fuses and relays. If you add freon, make sure you use a gage and don't over fill it. Too much freon can

FORD ESCAPE A/C PROBLEM


This must be one of those disposable guage/can things.Are you really going to trust a disposable guage?If the clutch wouldn't engage at all,and after adding some refrigerant,it engages erratically,it's probably still low on charge.Keep adding refrigerant while the system is running,until the compressor cycling becomes more normal.I like to place a box fan up against the grill to blow air over the condensor,to simulate the air flow created by the vehicle driving down the road.This lowers the temperature and pressure of the high side,allowing the refrigerant to flow in faster.You might also want to put a thermometer in the center dash duct to monitor the duct termperature.

Cannot locate valve to add 134a refrigerant in a 2000 lincoln navigator


What your looking for is called a service port. On a 134a system there are two of them, located in the refrigerant lines. One port will be larger diameter than the other. The large one is the "high" side and the small one is the "low" side. refrigerent is added to the low side with the system running. You really should use a manifold gauge set to see what the pressures are before adding any refrigerant. If the system has too much, it is as bad as not enough.

No,you won't find it in the owner's manual. It charges through the low pressure side,which is the larger of the 2 available ports. You can't hook it up wrong. I suggest you buy a Hayne's manual for the truck. It has 90% of any answer you might need. A/C can be tricky to fix for the novice. If charging doesn't work,take it to the shop.

I tried to charge the air conditioner on 95 suburban. it doesn't act like it wants to charge. the compressor keeps cycling on and off so can't get a good read on the pressure.


The system could be low on oil. The compressor will shut itself down if it detects a lack of oil or refrigerant. Try adding compressor oil (comes in a can similar to the R-134A) to see if the compressor will stay engaged long enough to accept a charge. It's also possible that the system has so much air in it that it needs to be evacuated before refrigerant can be added. I'd try to add the oil and see if you have better sucess adding refrigerant REMINDER: Have AC on HIGH when adding refrigerant with car running

Hope this helps with your AC problem. Please post back with any other questions. Best of luck.

A/C light inside of van blinks does this mean it


there may be an error with the compressor. since AC is especially complicated, have someone check the compresser and your hoses first, as you may also have a leak, and adding more 134 would be a waste of money.
