Question about 1991 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

I replaced my compressor and accumulator on my 91 S10 Blazer. Now, it will not hold a charge. There's no apparent leak, what the heck can it be?

If the system isn't holding a charge then there is a leak somewhere. A lot of times with these older aluminum A/C lines when you take the apart the threads will gal and make it almost impossible to get o tighten down and seal against the o-rings. They make freon with dye added to it so that you can use a small ultra violet light to help locate hard to fine leaks you may want to check with your local parts store. Good luck

Oil and refrigerant capacity for 88 chevy s10 pickup

There should have been a sticker on or around the accumulator with the specs.
Oil capacity is the amount drained from the old compressor, plus 3 oz. for the accumulator. Freon charge would be around 36oz or 3 cans.
You would put in 2 cans and then add until the pressure readings are within spec.

Where can I find the low port to recharge my AC on my 2000 chevy blazer

The low pressure port on an AC system is between the evaporator and the compressor. The evaporator is the cooling coil in the dash. I believe you will find an accumulator just on the "out" side of the evaporator. The accumulator is a round aluminum container about 4 in. in diameter and about 7 in tall. It has a tube from the evaporator going in near the top, a tube/hose going from the accum. to the compressor and probably a pressure switch and a charging port. All these items are located around the top of the accumulator. That charging port is the low pressure, (suction side of the compressor). Don't over charge. Use just enough to get cold air from the system. I doubt this system has a sight glass in the tube near the condensor, but if it does, put in just enough refrigerant to where you no longer see bubles going past the sight glass. If this is a cronic leak, you must have the leak repaired. It is aginst the law to recharge AC systems without repairing the leak.

Thanks for using FixYa. Good luck.

Need diagram for brake lines 1998 s10 blazer 4wd ! i have leak under truck cant find it

If you aren't experienced with brakes you should see a mechanic. With metering valves, proportioning valves, ABS accumulators and other variables they need a trained eye. A master cylinder could be leaking into the vacuum system and not visible. Sometimes a wet backing plate can identify a leaky wheel cylinder. Portions of the line are rubber hoses. Even parts that are not leaking may be damaged and causing problems elsewhere.
