A/C in my car

Two things pop immediately to mind...

but before even going there... be VERY CAREFUL 275 pounds seems terribly high for an '89... If something cuts loose at that pressure you best have all your helmets, flak jackets, gloves, glasses & cups on... (I'm just saying).

Pressure line should be hot and suction line should be cool... coming back to the compressor.. Yes...??

Lets get to the two things on my mind:

1. Malfunctioning Heater-A/C baffles cause lotsa grief.

2. Drier: Desiccant saturation by exposure to atmospheric moistures... replace or attempt recovery by pulling & holding a SERIOUS vacuum before re-charging your system.

ELSE: Ice crystals will form at the "ORIFACE" and PROFOUNDLY AFFECT PERFORMANCE...

Pulling & holding a 29 vacuum also certifies your main compressor seal (ergo... refrigerant & lubricant will remain intact)... Any trace of OIL BUILD-UP on the front of the COMPRESSOR (or inside the hood in alignment with your compressor pulley) should be addressed... oil level checked & augmented (only as needed)).

Hope this helps

Where is the accumalator located at and what does it do

An accumulator is a physical component in an auto's air-conditioning system. It is made of metal and is cylindrical in shape.

It is similar in shape, yet larger- than the a/c system's receiver/drier; which is another important component to a car's air conditioning system.

The accumulator is connected to the evaporator outlet, on the low-pressure side of the system.

[Whereas, the receiver/drier is located on the high-pressure side of the a/c system and can be connected directly to the condenser; or between the condenser and the expansion valve; and it serves a totally different function than the accumulator. 1.) it acts as a temporary storage container for oil and refrigerant when neither are needed for system operation; hence the name, receiver. 2.) it contains a filter that can trap impurities that may be inside the A/C system; and 3.) it contains desiccant to absorb moisture (humidity) that may have gotten inside the A/C system]

Anyway, the accumulator's primary function is to store liquid refrigerant that is exiting the evaporator, to prevent it from reaching the compressor. If liquid refrigerant were to enter the compressor, it could cause damage, as the compressor is not designed to pump liquid, only vapor.

The accumulator also allows the refrigerant the time to warm up and change from a liquid to a vapor, before being drawn back into the compressor.

An accumulator also serves as a temporary storage container for oil when the oil is not needed by the system and like the drier, it too contains desiccant and a filter.

It is recommended that both be replaced in the event the system is opened to the environment during the servicing or repair of the car's a/c system

Goldwing 1500 on board air compressor increase-decrease switch switch wont work new switch compressor good

Double check and inspect all connections, fuses and relays. Only other thing I can think of is if nothing is found, switch may be faulty right out of the box.

Air conditioning

I'm not absolutely sure on this one, but many compressors have a low pressure and a high pressure cut off switch. The low pressure switch monitors to make sure there is enough refrigerant in the system. Too low and it cuts off because otherwise your system will ice up (go figure that one out!) The high pressure switch is there to protect from clogs in the system causing damage to the compressor or other system components.

You should have a qualified professional check the system and both of those sensors. You most likely have a clog in the system which can be caused by a broken desiccant bag or a compressor that is beginning to self destruct and some piece of metal is clogging the system in a hose or at the orifice tube.

In any case you need professional help here...

How do I change a desiccant bag in a 2003 Hyundai

You have to change the entire condensor assembly. The desiccant bag (Receiver/Dryer) is an integral part of the condensor.

Does this condensor look like the one on your 2003 Santa Fe? If so, there you go. If not, let me know.
