Aircondition refrigerent fill location

There are ports on the ac lines - - depending on if the car used R134 freon when built they can also be on the compressor.
One port is bigger than the other to help prevent hooking up to the wrong side of the compressor.

A/C compressor is not engaging

You need a technician. The system could be out of refrigerent, and this causes the low pressure switch to open thereby prohibiting the compressor clutch from functioning. The electromagnet in the clutch could have failed or it could be a switch or fuse problem. My guess is the low pressure switch though.

I have a 2002 PT cruiser. When I tried the air conditioner it doesn't get cold. I tried to add refrigerent and it didn't work. What different things could it be?

Well, it could be a lot of things. Bad compressor, bad clutch on the compressor, overcharged system causing the Safety to activate, a leak in the system, a bad coil or dryer or something as simple as a blown fuse for the compressor. Put your system in full defroster and set the temp select to max cold. if the compressor kicks in and you get cold air at that front window then the problem could be the control itself. If the compressor doesn't activate then it is most likely the compressor. or an overcharged system.

Water collecting under the crispers

Defective thermostate switches off the compressor and then switches on the compressor before time. Please replace the thermostate to solve this problem. There is no defect with the compressor or there is no refrigerent leak too since you have good cooling. Only it require replacement of thermostate.

Noisy unit, not cooling well, water drip from air intake

First please check the air filter and clean it and refix it.
Please check the refrigerent level next if it continues. Refrigerent leak will result in poor cooling and enhance the noise level.
The compressor could be defective and might take high power to run and only replacement of the compressor could improve the working condition.
In case the unit is more than 5 years old it is wise to replace it with a new unit and save your power bill.

Five year old goodman unit compressor gone bad. Should I just replace the compressor or should I get new air handler and condensing unit. Really don't want to spend the money, can really use it somewhere...

Depends on if your going to stay with the old refrigerent system of R 22 ro upgrade to the new R410A system. I have been upgreading my customers to 410A if the compressor has failed. Replacement of all components recomended on a compressor burn out.

Compressure keeps shutting off

If the compressor is cutting off you can check the coil under the unit to see if it needs cleaning also check to see if the condenser fan is working. If it is clean and the fan is working you should unplug it and call a service tec it's eather the starting relay , overload , low on refrigerent or a bad compressor.

A/c not working 95 ford f150

Your compressor will not turn without sufficient refrigerent in the system. Nothing will work at all. So to start you need to get a charging kit that has a gauge you can hook up. If it's low charge it with the AC on and the compressor should start to turn faster as it gets more refrigerent. If it stops working again you hace a leak that must be repaired. Most auto parts stores have leak repair detectors. Good Luck

Recharging the a/c

Charging the A/C system is really simple. I have a '98, but don't know why a '97 would be much differrent. So, see if this works for you.

You will need a charging hose with a guage and two or three cans of refrigerent (R-134A). If your system is out of refrigerent you have a leak. So, make sure one of the cans you buy has marking dye in it so you can figure out where the leak is. Depending on how large a leak you have, it may take several weeks and months or just a few days. Most canned refrigerents have a sealing material that may plug the leak for an extended period of time or even permanently.

With the engine running and air conditioning on, disconnect the harness from the low pressure switch on the accumulator (left side of engine compartment).

Use a small wire to jump acoss the two contacts, the compressor clutch should engage and the compressor should start turning.

With the refrigerent can attached to the low side hose (blue connector), connect the hose to the low side port on the accumulator.

Open the valve on the charging hose. Refrigerent should start flowing. Shake can periodically refrigerent is drawn into system. Can will feel very cold and probably begin sweating as the refrigerent evaporates and is drawn into the accumulator.

There should be technical sticker under the hood to tell you how much refrigerent to charge system with. When it reaches the correct pressure 25 to 45 psi depending on ambient temperature, you are close to the correct charge, (most gauges you get at auto parts stores have a "blue zone" to indicate proper charge) close charging valve and disconnect the hose from accumulator. Though you can't tell exactly how much refrigerent you've put in, by knowing how much is in each can and how many cans you put in you will have a pretty good idea.

This will all go fine as long as you don't have a bad compressor or other sealed system problem.

Good Luck!
