HI, your system holds 1.6 lbs. 0.73kg. Because to replace what oil the system lost with PAG oil only and be sure your system old vacuum for at least 10 min. not only to remove any moisture but to check for leaks. No sense adding refrigerant to have it leak out. Hope this helps and stay cool.

I have a 1995 jeep grand cherokee and i cant figure out the difference between the high and low side is the low side gonna be on a metal pipe near the fire wall or on the compresure its self cause that is...


during the 1995 R12 was still in uses if you have 134a then you have the conversion here are the valve rule of thumb if the A/C pipes are thick you have the low pressure line the filter drier is a low pressure area, here the high pressure the condensor the thin line is the high pressure, go to the filter drier follow the thick line and you will find a valve that low pressure, go to the condensor the thin line you may even find a sight glass that area is the high pressure you should find a valve this is the high pressure

Engine idles high...in excess of 1200 rpm...replaced the inlet air control valve...did not fix the problem...any other ideas? vacuum line problem?


Have you had the idle sensor checked? I had a 92 Grand Am that was doing the same thing. The mechanic checked it (after the wreck) and turns out that was causing the engine to idle high.

Hi, I need to know the location of the PCV valve on a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am with a 2.4L engine. Thanks.


It is located, as you are standing, facing the front of the engine, on the left front side going into the valve cover.

It is a little silver part that rattles when you shake it.


Good Luck...

We bought a hose and freon and the hose doesn't seem to fit right. Can freon be refilled at home?


Make sure you have 134a coolant and gauge with lines to fit 134a NOT r12 or r22!!! And then there are 2 lines upper and lower, if you have the right hose you might be trying the wrong port.

The connection at the evaporator is the low side and if you have 134A you cannot use r12 gage set.Get the 134A gage set!

How do I convert or fill 92 Jeep Cherokee air conditioning freon?


If it leaks 134 it will leak R-12 .I have changed hundreds of systems over to 134 without any complaints. Don't let the 94% eff rating of 134a scare you because that does not mean that your ac system will lose 6% cooling ability .A large class 8 truck or maybe a high roof van black on black and poor insulation might tax the system in the 90% range on 100 degree days but most systems never get close .
134a high side pressure will be about 18% higher so most systems you need to change the high side cutout.The R-12 electric fan switch will be ok just make sure it is engageing the fan when the pressure comes up.You must check the condensor in front of radiator to make sure air flows easily thru it.On systems where the hoses screw on each side of the dryer I replace the dryer .Drain oil from compressor and replace with 134a oil .Replace that bad valve core (with ac valve core not a tire valve) Now very very important vaccum the system and if no loss of vaccum in 20 min charge with manufactors recomended amount of oil and freon.If a system is low on freon (cycling in & out on low pressure switch) you can add a pound of charge with those small cans of same type freon no problem but when there is a leak and the charge has been lost or changing freon types you must pull a vaccum to properlly charge the system. If you just charge R-12 or 134a your system will have traped non -condensables and a large drop in cooling ability. Hope this helps. Harold

FILLING UP THE FREON IN MY 2000 NISSAN MAXIMA SE


2000 maxima is filled with R134, not freon. You don't need retro fit kit. Get couple of cans of R134 and pump it into the low side valve /small fiting, while A/C compressor is engaged. If your compressor is not coming on, jump the low side pressure switch to make the compressor come on and than the R134 will get sucked in to your system through the low side line. The proper way to do this is to put a/c system under vaccum for 15 minutes at least and watch for leak/gauges coming/loosing vaccum. Than pump R134 into the HIGH side valve with engine OFF.
