Question about 1999 Dodge Caravan
Replaced bad compressor, new drier/rec'r, expansion valve, flushed lines. no resistance on condensor or evaporator. pulled vacuum, charge with less than 2 pounds, locked up compressor and blow out over pressure.
Frustated any ideas?
Did you turn the compressor clutch plate manually for 20 turns?, to displace the oil that is in the compressor's valve as it is new and have some oil in the valves which is very hard to turn at high speed.
you can try to manually turn the compressor plate in the reverse direction, you could un lock it and hopefully not a amjor problem occurs..
