Unfortunately there is no kit that has been made up, as it was not going to be cost-effective to make them up. What is required to replace is the receiver/drier assembly, the compressor will have to be drained of the oil in it, and then new oil and R134a gas put normally has to be done by a licensed air-conditioning installer.

What a/c retrofit conversion kit do I need for my 1983 mercury grand marquis

Look up kits which change from R12 to R134 freon. In the beginning, things were advertised as incompatible and that compressors could not be reused

From what I understand there are chemicals which can be added to the systems once the old Freon and oil are removed. There are Freon recovery machines which collect the old material.

A technician then can add a neutralizer and refill the system with modern freon and the seals and bearings are suppose to handle the new chemicals.

So for the Freon recovery aspect, you need to go to a professional for this service.

Where do u put freon in at

Usually the fittings are on the compressor or the lines coming from the condenser. Keep in mind, if the system has not been converted to R134 your recharge hose kit won't fit.

How to convert my a/c r12 to 134a my car is mercedes e300 1986

As far as I know you only have to change the compressor and dryer-filter to comply with 134a. Other components from old Freon 12 are safe to use for 134a. There's an Urban (mechanics) legend that you can use a 134a to an r12 system, but you can't use an r12 to a newer 134a system. But be on the safe side, change the compressor and dryer to use 134a or ask an expert on refrigeration.

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.

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.

I'm trying to find out what kind of air conditioner coolant goes in a 1986 chevy cavalier, and how to refill it

it takes R12 freon, but R12 is no longer made because it damaged the Ozone layer, so u must have a automtive repair shop convert the R12 system to the newer R134, this is fairly expensive, about $200

Where is the valve to add refrigerant to my 2001 Ford Expedition's A/C system?...It does not blow as cold as it used to and I want to try this before bringing it in to the shop

I just did this on my f150 supercrew, which looks identical to my 2000 expedition. follow the freon lines, usually next to the battery, to the firewall. tucked against the firewall is the condensor and just above it is the low pressure access port. I topped off my freon using a kit with a pressure gauge. the before pressor was 40, and after the freon addition was 50. Made ALL the difference between a slightly cool AC and FREEZING COLD AC. Total cost with tax for the kit was just under $30. The kit inclued an 18 oz refill container (17 oz freon + 1 oz synthetic lubricant in the can) and reusable hose/pressure guage.

A/C is not wrking

The use of R134 came in the early 90's. The addition of a can or two of R12 would be expensive in the "86 but I used R134 when I changed the compressor (no freon to save) and it worked. The kit has a label to keep others from adding the wrong freon. The belts are different on the 1st and 2nd generation legend.
