You will need a vacuum pump, manifold gauges, and new refridgerant. You will also need a recapture device to prevent your old stuff from going into the air. Remove the lines from the condenser. Remove the condenser. Draw down the system with the vaccum pump. Recharge the system using the manifold gauges to give the correct high side and low side pressures. This is not a do it yourself kind of job unless you work as a mechanic for a living.

97 ford explorer a/c quit-the a/c clutch is not kicking in

You have lost the charge and that is commonly due to a couple of built in problems, these are, the AC line "O" rings leak after they harden up from heat and then on top of that the AC condenser leaks due to vibration, the condenser core will pass a vacuum test but it will be defective, so replace all the AC line "O" rings with the new design and replace the AC condenser core. A special tool is required to release the lines to service the "O" rings and any parts store will have the kit. I did hundreds of these at my Ford dealer

I have a hole in the ac condenser iv taken the condenser and radraidtor out I have no money to buy new parts can ibypasss it

If you just had a hole in condenser and not radiator, and it does not bother you to not have air conditioning, you should have taken it apart. The air cond. will detect low freon pressure and not turn on.

When ac compressor engauges you can notice strain on engine . Shortly after that a line came off condenser with a loud bang.The line that broke goes from compressor to condensor. Now compressor is noisy....

The head pressure got too high on the ac system,when you have the ac compressor replaced,and it`s components,make sure the condenser is flushed out good,and that the cooling fans are working with the ac,they need to come on with the ac,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Need to replace ac condensor on 1999 taurus how do you do it

If your AC system is empty...The condenser is in front of the radiator.
1. Use ramps or jacks or a lift to raise the car so you can work under it.
2. remove the splash guard under the radiator.
3. Remove the bolts holding the tranmission cooling lines. These also may also hold the bottom of the condenser on the AC line side. Move the cooling lines away from the AC lines.
4. Remove the nuts holding the AC lines to the condenser. You may have to hold the fittings with a vise wrench to prevent bending the pipes.
5. Remove the other lower condenser bolt and use the access holes to remove the top bolts holding the condenser.
6. Lower the condenser out.
Reverse procedure to install the new condenser.

If you have the correct tools, this is a fairly easy job.

Vw passat 03 overheats when ac is on in peak traffic/stationary

since the water pump was replaced, make sure you don't have an air pocket in the cooling system. flush your cooling system again. remember, if all was well before the tune up/preventative maintanance, it's within those items that were replaced. I don't think it's the condensor, thats a/c related, but the radiator and water pump, well those can cause overheating problems. when the system overheats, you will feel it in the ac.
