Use a standard fill hose and locate the low pressure port.It will most allways be smaller than the high side connect the hose to the low pressure port after you remove the cap. Then scew the a
can of compreeor oil onto the hose. You will find the oil at most auto parts houses and wal-mart. Start the engine and rev to about 1500rpm. open the can by screwing the house valve and needle in or all the way down. Now back the valve out allthe way. This will allow the oil to flow. Hold the can up-right call that 12 o-clock . After a few seconds rotate the can to the 3 o-clock possition for two to three sec. then rotae back to 12 o-clock. Reapeat this every few second until the can is empty. I know the can will say this end up but it will be ok. Now when canis empty close down the hose valve and dissconnect the hose and replace the cap on low port. If this sounds over your head or you are not sure it only need oil contact an A/C mechanic. Note If it is a new or reman compressor it will be shipped with a fe ounces oil in it. If so then a can of first charge gas and oil will be good enough. hope this help some. Good Luck!

When fixing an ac compressor on a 97 tahoe would you have to change any thing else?


Assumming the compressor is the problem - You will need to capture the current gas and recharge the system after replacement - you will need to take it to an air-conditioning specialist first to have this done.

The air ride system can be "self tested" with a GM Tech 2 scan tool, you need that done to see what is causing this problem, it could be the suspension height sensor, it could be a leaking air bag (very common) or a defective air compressor or damaged leaking air lines from the compressor to the airbags, also a very common. The airbags are good for about 75,000 miles or less if the roads you travel on are in poor condition.

2003 Chevy Tahoe Rear air conditioning not working but front does


The problem is probably the blower motor relay/breaker. It is located under the hood, in a plastic cover with the rest of the relays. It is labeled either next to the relay or on the inside of the cover.

Air conditioning compressor not getting power on 96 Chevy Tahoe


Freon is what you are missing, our more specificly a refigerant charge that exceeds 45psi on the low side pressure line. This system has two pressure switches, a high side cut-out switch mounted on the rear of the compressor, and a low side or pressure cycling switch on the suction line.
Jump the low side switch contacts to ensure the electronics are sound for this system. If the compressor cycles, you know the system is low on a refrigerant charge. Turning on the AC is a request, and certain criteria must be met before the system operates as designed. Good luck

2004 chevy tahoo air conditioning wont work


Well as long as he did not unplug any fuse or repace the blown fuse in the a/c fuses spot then it just maybe just bad luck.Anyway check to make sure the belt is on the compressor,and if thats ok make sure the compressor is coming on.If it is then get it recharged and put some dye in it to help find the leak.

That "thing" is part of the compressor clutch. When it’s spinning the clutch is engaged, when it stops the compressor is off. If it’s constantly cycling, you probably don’t have enough freon in the system. But remember, however the gas escaped before, it will escape again, unless you fix the leak.
