Question about 2003 Subaru Outback
To make a long story short as possible, local certified mech replaced, comp., accumalator, expansion valve and high side line due to a leak, I began having a noise that sounds like the low note of a flute resonate inside of the cab, but only sporadicly. I tracked the noise down to a vibration in the low side line just before it enters the fire wall. I am thinking restriction or malfunction in expansion valve. Maybe too much oil in the system. Any ideas? Also, how much oil should be in the compressor. Subaru says 4oz in the condensing coil, .4oz per hose, .2oz in accumalator, but no spec on compressor.???? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JOEL
I had this problem and it was because I tried to fill the system myself and I did two things wrong. One, I had the pressure too high. Subaru preasors are lower than a lot. Two, I got air in the line and it was causing this. I took my Subaru back to a certified mecanic who put my a/c system on a vacuum for an hour them preasurized it properly and it took the problem away and it works great.
