You need about 30-36 oz of r-12 or convert it to r134 the red tek product is terrible, one of my business friends here in colorado is actually the co owner of the company (and you guessed it .... his name is red :) )
i have never had the stuff work worth a dang but the retrofit kit (35-50 $) that you can buy at any walmart or auto part store always works awesome and comes with a guage to tell you when it is full :)

Refrigerant charge


If you mean "how much does it hold" there is a sticker in the engine compartment or on the compressor that gives the capacity.
On that kind of car, I would say total capacity would be around 4 cans or 3 lbs. That is if the system is empty and has a vac when it is filled.

Ac refridgerent fill port


The A/C Fill port is the low pressure service port on this diagram;

It is located on the larger diameter aluminum tube coming back from the evaporator and firewall, to the A/C compressor. The fitting will have a taller skinnier cap on it, that may be blue or black. Not red. The R134a refrigerant cans will not connect to the high side port. This is good since the can could potentially explode/vent causing a sort of instant cryo frost bite to exposed skin. I recommend wearing gloves when recharging A/C sytems, especially if you are new to refrigeration systems.

Ask away if you have any more A/C questions or need help with charging the sytem.

The air conditioning on my 2003 Corolla has recently stopped working. It happened after being on a rocky dirt road. I looked inside and didn't see any coolant, so filled with water to see if there was...


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.

Light came on while driving my 2006 grand prix pontaic ac off to potect engine


Most likely due to low refrigerant... Need to have the ac refrigerant refilled to capacity.

You should also check all your fuses. Since the 30amp A/C fuse may have blown or burnt out.
Fortunately the vehicles warning system seems to have stepped up and did it's job..., but this may have been after a fuse was blown..

Be sure to refill your A/C refrigerant in accordance to the proper level defined by the ambient air temperature (outside air temp where your vehicle is located).

Hopefully you found this useful

Good Luck and Happy Motoring

Not cooling at all throws hot air


Most common cause of your problem is a leak in the AC system. This causes loss of refrigerant. There are AC kits to refill refrigerant but unless you find the source of the leak and repair it, a refill kit will only work temporarily.

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.

No freon left want to replace with red tek 12a need to know where the lowservice is located


Find the A/C compressor. You will see a large line and a small line. Follow the larger line all the way back to the firewall. You will see what looks like a tire valve stem with a cap on it. That is you low side refrigerent service port.

On my 1995 Dodge Ram When I turn the A/C On it dosent seem to kick in and get cold just warm air?


In most cases, the problem is the system is low on refrigerant. The AC compressor requires a minimum of 20psi of refrigerant to turn on. There are refill kits available at the auto parts stores. If doing this yourself, select a kit that includes compressor oil, and a refill hose.

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.

Air blowing warm in 2001 dodge dakota


get the a/c condensor recharged with a freon substitute, i use "red-tek 12a refrigerant", it is much safer than freon and is ozone friendly.
