If you mean removing the frean, it has to be done with a vacuum pump by a certified technician.

I have 1991 Cadillac Fleetwood and need to remove ac compresser


If the compressor locked up the chances there are metallic parts in the rest of the system are great. Flushing out the system is best left to professionals. If your system has not been converted from R 12 freon to R-134a freon, now's the time to do it. The oil in the R-12 system is not compatible with r-134a. If there is still freon in the system you cannot simply discharge it into the air.. The fine is huge. Have an AC shop do the work.

2008 gmc envoy evap were is it at im trying to replace it i have part in hand


Inside the Heater / AC Box behind the dash. This job is best left to a mechanic certified to work on A/C systems, because it is illegal to vent the Refrigerant (134a) into the atmosphere. A mechanic will have the proper equipment to vacuum down the A/C system to remove any remaining 134a from the system.
The system will also need to be vacuumed again once the evaporator is replaced, to remove moisture and any possible contaminates from the system prior to charging it with new refrigerant.

What type of freon is in GMC trucks of 1987?


R12.... In 1994 R134a was required, but some changed earlier. Yours may have been converted. If the service ports are threaded it still has R12. Hope this helps.

How do you add the 134a to a 1997 chevrolet lumina?


Go to wal mart $6.00 a 12 oz can,may need 2 cans. Car owners manual will tell capacity in oz of AC system never charge over that amount into your system, also PSI and ounces are not the same thing

Go to auto parts store buy R-134a charging hose kit with a gage built in.$ 10.00

Turn engine OFF Under the engine hood, is a large aluminum cannister usually on passengers side ,on it or on a hose coming out of it will be a black plastic cap,with a connect fitting under, remove cap, pull and hold back the locking ring on the charging connector and push on fitting. look at gage it will show how much freon pressure is in system, with engine and ac off a higher pressure value will be on gage Start engine and turn ac on cooldest and fan high. The pressure will drop. if the pressure drops below about 22 PSI the ac compressor will stop automatic by the low pressure cut out switch.then the pressure will build above 25 and the compressor will engage again, this is short cycling(no/off) on the low pressure sensor and is a good indicator of a low charge of refigerant(R-134a). Charge according to instructions on kit. When the pressure stays above 28 and the compressor stops cycling off your good DO NOT over charge or you can cause compressor slugging. Liquid into compressor($1200.00 for new compressor)
SAFETY!!!!
R-134a can cause blindness. wear goggles and gloves

The "O" ring seals in the ac system dry out when the ac is not in use for over a month and leak the refigerant out again, So Use your defrost setting in the winter because it runs the ac compressor for dehumidifying, but only after the engine has warmed up a little, or with no warmth from engine the defrost will blow freezing air.

Air compressor wont come on to to put in 134a


The AC compressor does not have to be running to charge the AC system, and the low pressure switch will even prevent the AC compressor from operating until there is sufficient pressure to operate the AC compressor without damaging it.

Start the engine and turn on the AC, then charge the system with the R-134a and as soon as there is enough pressure built up to trip the low pressure switch off, the AC compressor clutch should then engage and then finish charging the AC system.

I need to retrofit and recharge my 1988 Dodge Ram Ac.


First, the old R-12 must be completely evacuated fromt the system. R-12 and R-134A do not mix and won't function together. Once you are sure there's no R-12 left in the system, you need to install an R-134A fill valve on the low side AC line. This is where your refill hose will connect to add R-134A. Once the valve is in place you're ready to fill the system. The compressor requires a minimum of 20psi to engage and should not be filled to more than 45psi.

RECHARGING AC SYSTEM

1.Turn the truck on and turn AC on HIGH
2.Locate the low side AC line (will have a valve and cap similar to the cap on a tire)
3.Insert the oil or R-134A can to the hose (Do not turn the screw to puncture the can yet)
4.Insert the other end of the refill hose to the low side valve
5.Puncture the R-134A can with the screw on the refill hose
6.You should feel the system suction the refrigerant out of the can
7.Check for frost on the AC lines and the air blowing inside the truck
8.If frost develops and the air is cold, you've successfully recharged the system and disconnect the refill hose. DO NOT ADD MORE REFRIGERANT...overcharging the system will damage your compressor and will be less effective
Hopefully this answers your question and you're able to get your AC working again. Best of luck.

you should be adding the 134a to the system the low pressure switch is doing its job by not allowing the compressor to kick on, it wont kick on until there is enough 134a in the system to be above the preset pressure for the low pressure switch.
