Ac pressures on 2004 mountianeer

On a 134 system, normal pressure readings at 80 degrees with the system charged and running are 30-45 psi low side and 250-300 psi high side.

Im here in afghanistan, big fridge isnt working. evac down no leaks, fill up with the prescibed 13 oz 134. No cooling activity whatsoever. Compressor is on. Only 90 psi low side w/ 13 oz. Add more- can...

90 psi for 134a is to high, should be around 40 psi. the 140 that you are seeing is the test pressures for that side of the system and does not reflect operation pressures. sounds like it is over charged. hope this helps.

2003 yukon xl front a/c not blowing cold air.back working just fine. added r 134 last week ,with low side pressure of 70 psi,high side at 275 psi.what could be the problem

{: ) Try to feel the the a/c accumulator for coldness. It is that metallic can mounted near the firewall, connected along the a/c suction pipe. Actually, 70 psi is still somewhat high. But anyway, if the accumulator is cold to touch, most probably the problem is on the front air distribution. Assuming that your front blower is working, the cold air could have been distributed elsewhere, to the other vents instead of the front vents.
It can be an actuator or an air vent door fault. There are also GM bulletins for this kind of concern like connector, wiring, or calibration issues. Depending on the retrieved codes by a scan tool, it can help narrow down the search and the cause, and eventually speed up the repairs. So goodluck.

Where is low side of a/c system to cahrge with 134

The low pressure side of the r134a system is always located on the thicker pipes vs. the thinner pipes leading away from the compressor.

So, just followi the larger diameter piping from the compressor until you come to a quick connect fitting that attaches to the hose quick connector that is attached to a can of r134a.

The pressure reading should be 25 psi to 45 psi on the low side when the compressor is turning and the a/c is on.

If it's higher than this, the compressor may not be turning, and the normal non turning psi is 75psi to 100 psi or so on a hot day.

A/C blowing hot air....any ideas it isn't the freon.

your temp. control valve is not closing off the flow of hot water , check for vaccum leak

Not cooling

Unplug it, and don't turn it on anymore. Doing so can damage the compressor, and I hope it is not damaged already. This will cause the compressor to overheat, and fail. You can buy line tap, and then buy one of those 134 adapter. Check to see if it has freon in there. Refrigarators today uses 134 and anyone can buy it. Locate the low side which is the larger tube coming out of the compressor. Screw in the tap, which should poke a hole on the line. Dont worry a tap do not leak, and I have used them many times.Once in place push the valve if there is any freon in there. if there is none then there is a leak somewhere. Find the leak and repair it first. You can buy a cheap propane torch for about 12-20 bucks, along with flux, and some solder. make sure you clean the copper to be repaired first with a wire brush. Once the leak is repaired, you are now ready to put the 134 refrigerant. An average refrigarator usually take a little more the half a can of 134. Putting too much will not make it cold enough. Well good luck hope this hepls.

A/c does not work

Is the pressure at 35 psi with the compressor not turning? Or it is running, 35 psi low side, just not cold from dash?

A c starts off cooling good then compressor starts kicking in and

Several possible causes. Knowing the state of refrigerant charge would be helpful. Assuming it has a 'full' charge (full charge 680 Grams = 1.50 Pounds) Most common causes of AC problems:
1. Thermostatic switch (sensor) malfunction in the evaporator - allowing the evaporator to ice up. Check the vent temperature (using a cooking thermometer) to see if the temperature gets near or below freezing (32 Deg F.). If so, the thermostatic switch in the evaporator is defective. Replace it.
2. Refrigerant UNDER-charge. If the temperature does NOT get near freezing, then you need a set of AC gauges to check the compressor head pressure (High side) and the suction (Low side). High side pressure (nominal) is 229 PSI (+ - 20 psi) @ 2000 RPM. Low side (nominal) is around 20 to 40 psi. NOT common problems:
1. The magnetic clutch coil on the compressor... as it heats/warms up, the coil windings could be going 'open" circuit which would turn the compressor 'off.'
2. Compressor inefficiency (worn out).
3. Expansion Valve
4. Clogged Condensor
