Question about 1992 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Reply to 1992 honda ac

It does cycle off around 30psi. The diagram i have doesn't show and orbvice tube/screen. We did blow through the line with compressed air, to check for restrictions and debry but didn't seem restricted and the white rag was clean after we blew through it. This is my daily driver and i run the system to and from work. In the heat of the day it's decent not freezing but cool. The evaporator does sweat a lot. It pores out the tube pretty good. the low end hose is cool and sweating and the high end is warm. It's really got us stumped.

    You may have a blend door leaking and allowing heater core heat to blend into the AC cooled air stream. Check it out.

    There is a fixed orifice but it may be part of the high pressure line, do you have a factory service manual?? You mentioned you converted to R134, on certain cars that works great with cheap kits that most auto parts stores sell, but the factory kit always has a different condenser, cooling fan and other control related switches, all the factory kits are not the same, some use allot of parts over, but most have you change the fixed orifice or the line it is crimped in, older cars had a vacuum suction valve that did the same thing as a fixed orifice, but they went out use years ago because they were expensive to make, a fixed orifice is cheap, a few dollars. Either that is the problem or the compressor has and issue or the charge is not right, either over or under, remember you can't use a site glass to verify full charge with R134, it must be measured, it takes less R134 than R12 to fill the system. Also R134 is not as good at cooling as R12, that is why the large parts like a condenser in the factory changeover kits, hope some of this info helps.

Also check to make sure that both the electric fans behind the radiator/condenser assembly are running with the A/C on. You can also improve the system performance by cleaning out the A/C condenser unit. It sits in front of the radiator. With the engine running and the A/C engaged, spray water from a garden hose through all the finning of the A/C condenser for 2-4 minutes. This will clear out any dead bugs and debris on the condenser or trapped between the condenser and the radiator. Cleaning the condenser every other month will greatly increase the life of your compressor.

1992 Mercury sable,loud pop then looks like steam coming up out of right side of hood AC stopped cooling blower still works

Sounds like AC line burst or compressor safety release drained system (less likely). Sometimes a AC system is overcharged. There are 2 safety relays to protect the system and one is for low pressure and the other is for high pressure. These prevent the compressor from getting power to the compressor clutch.

The freon gas reacts to outside air temperature. Pressure is relative to temperature. Making up numbers for example a 50 degree temp may have 30psi but a 100 degree temp may climb to 100psi and cause relays to pop.

You need to have the system pressure checked. There are devices called sniffers for leak detection. See a Pro If someone fooled with this AC it may have blown a seal or line.

1992 honda integra horn fuse blows after applying brakes

Honda makes the Integra but it uses the Acura name in the US.
According to the wiring diagram the brake lights and horn are on the same circuit. So I would check the bulbs and sockets for a short.
The brake light switch also involves the cruise control system.

Where is the orifice tube located to put a new one in?

The orifice tube is located inside the liquid line where it connects to the condenser. This line is located on the passenger side of the car and has the low side charge port on it. this line unscrews right where the orifice tube is located... Hope this helps

Air conditioning not cooling properly

It sure sounds like a restriction, but you seem to have covered most all the bases I would (I am a ASE Master technician) see if the fixed orifice is plugged or restricted??, maybe the system is freezing up, is the compressor cycling switch set correctly to approx 28-32 psi??
