Your AC can be recharged on the low pressure port, passanger side of the engine, near the fire wall. The recharge bottle will only fit on that port. Make sure you get a recharge kit with a hose and pressure dial. Where is the oil leak coming from?

See my tip on A/C recharge at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5833579-auto_truck_c_recharge

Can you isolate the oil leak a bit for us? If it is the rear crankshaft seal, that does require engine disassembly. The front crankshaft seal can be replaced with the engine in the car.

Ac Gas keeps leaking..


It seems no one has tried to find a leak, should not refill without leak checking. Where there is a refrigerant leak, some residual oil will appear, refrigerant and oil circulate and move together. The system should be cleaned so that any new oil leaking will mark the leaking area or spot when leak testing produces nothing. When no leaks are detected, a dye can be used to mark the leaking area.
Leaks are common to develop on joints where seals are present and where hose is crimped to solid tubing. I don't recommend leak sealer additive into the system.

My 2007 lincoln mkz overheated today.


possibly a hose or water pump leaking, but only while driving when full pressure is on the system. first check your oil and make sure theres no water in the oil.if no water in the oil, then fill the radiator,and let run in driveway until it reaches temp 190 to 210 and look for water leak then. If it were just the thermostat then you should have a boil over in coolant tank and wld/shld be able to smell or see the coolant loss. also inspect your radiator sides front and back, your radiator may have a hole

First of all, the AC has nothing to do with the coolant in the radiator, they are two different systems. You need to have an AC technician check for refrigerant leak in your AC system.
As far as getting rid of the water you added to the coolant, depending on how much of the total capacity you filled, you may have to drain the entire system and refill with a 50/50 mixture.

The low refrigerant light comes on and a/c doesn't work. The heaters and defrosters work fine however.


If the refrigerant is low /the coolant is low then AC will not work. But the heater will work.In this case the refrigerant needs to be refilled from car ac service center.Its not advisable to fill the refrigerant manually.So getting it done by a professional is very much advisable. But refilling the refrigerant should solve the problem.If there is no refrigerant leak.At the ac service center,they will confirm this before refilling refrigerant. ---------- Keep updated for any more queries.Thanks.

Ac is only cold when driving


your freon level is probably low. also you may have a loose belt. if the refrigerant is low you will need to add a few ouces of the appropriate oil for your a/c sytem. when freon leaks out you loose oil as well. one to two ounces give or take.

FIRST OF ALL ADD COOLANT TO RADIATOR ITS LOW.THATS WHY CAR IS OVERHEATING CHECK FOR LEAKING HOSES OR RADIATOR. ALSO YOU NEED TO ADD OIL TO BRING OIL LEVEL TO CORRECT LEVEL.HAVE THE ALTERNATOR REPLACE.BECAUSE ITS NOT CHARGING CAR BATTERY.CAUSING THE CAR NOT TO START.

Need help recharging ac iin a97 ford explorer


First it can be dangerous or fatal to service or attempt repairs or your vehicle's ac without the proper training or equipment so I will describe the proper steps for you to use to help ensure your safety. I'm guessing you have a standard recharge kit from walmart, autozone, etc. which consists of a pressure guage, screw on tap, valve, hose with attached fitting if yours differs let me know before proceeding otherwise, first attach hose to the low pressure charging port on the refrigerant line. This will be on the larger tube usually near or on the accumulator. the silver aluminum cylinder with several wire connections and 2 black plastic covers which will be your quick connect connections the smaller diameter one will be your low pressure side. Be sure to wear gloves and eye protection!!! check to ensure your connection is not leaking and check guage to see if any coolant is left over in the system.If it is completely discharged then ther is a substantial leak which could have caused your system to be contaminated with dirt/moisture loss of circulating oil in which you would just be throwing your money away recharging the system without finding the leak/s and repairing them. If coolant is still present, then check first for obvious leaks by checking for refrigerant oil on any hose, tubing, and fittings that are a part of the refrigerant system, next you could take some soapy water pour it on and look for any bubbles to appear which indicate a leak otherwise you would need a gas or coolant leak detector or a can of leak detector run through the system with a colored dye or one detected by a uv light. A small leak could allow your system to function for months before it fully depletes. Also if your compressor cycles on and off every couple of seconds that is from low pressure. Otherwise tap your can of r134a make sure the can remains upright at all times open valve to allow flow to low pres line your vehicle will need to be running with the ac on high cool DO NOT OVERFILL!!! keep your eye on guage I always put a thermometer in one of the vents you should have cold air between 38-45 degrees otherwise you may need several cans to completely fill system or one of the components I discussed earlier will need to be repaired for more efficient cooling. Let me know if you have any other questions and how this works out for you.

The system refrigerant charge was most likely low but not empty, so you would get a burst of pressure and oil, the oil that lubricates the AC compressor circulates with the refrigerant. Does this make sense?
