2003 jeep liberty air conditioning oil capacity


If the compressor is dry of oil (new compressors will either be shipped with or without oil) and you need to add oil you can never go wrong by adding three ounces. Once the compressor is installed turn it by hand several times. Then install the belt and add freon.

The A/C on my 1999 GMC Sierra blows out warm, even hot air when it's idling, and tolerably coolish air when I'm driving at speed on the freeway. I thought maybe I would have to recharge it, but the gauge...


well it sounds like you have too much freon and or oil in the system you need to have it evacuated and vacumed down and fill with exactally what it calls for and you need to also check the action of the fan make sure enough air is comming through the front of the car

Can some post the 1999 gmc sierra wiring diagram


you don't have enough pressure in your system. odds are you have a leak someplace and the factory installed a saftey switch to keep the ac from running when there is no pressure. This way you don't end up burning up your compressor.

I have a 1999 GMC 3/4 ton truck. My air conditioning doesn't work


if it is low on freon the compressor will have 0 volts becuase the low pressure switch on the evaporator isn't triggering...if you have freon then replace the low pressure switch...take a small piece of wire and disconnect the low pressure switch and jump the two sides of the plug together...compressor should come on
