How old is unit,or i missed it.,caps are a great non compressor start,some caps are "dual-caps" one is for comp and other is for fan,will have 3 terms in that case,they are a good investment if unit is over 5yrs old,they're not cheap,can you put a ("headset")manifold gauge set on and see if low on refrigerant,that will cause same problem/fan but no a/c compressor

Mike:

If you have air blowing out of the oil filler cap, I would suspect that the piston rings are shot. The piston rings are supposed to keep the compressed air above the piston, and air seems to be leaking past the piston rings into the crank case.

Every thing runs but the compressor wont fire i think its the compressor start up capacitor how do i test the capacitor


first discharge the capacitor for safetys sake,then touch the meter leads of a multi-meter set to RX100 to the caps leads if the needle stays on 0 the cap is shorted(but that would trip the wall breaker),if it doesnt move at all its open,if it goes to 0 and slowly climbs back towards infinity its good,i believe you will find the ptc overload relay on the compressor is defective,its in combination with the capacitor,the cap is only on there to take the power spikes off the relay contacts during start-up,the ptc overload relay is what aids in compressor start-up/run/and overload protection if compressor wont fire,change them both and it will run

It started without the distributor cap? That is impossible. I suspect you may have plug wires mixed up. Make sure it is wired as the diagram shows. Also replace the rotor. clay58_39.png

Fix my powerhose for 1988 acura integra


Integras are known for igniter assembly failure. Depending on engine year and model may be located inside of distributor or on inner fender well.

Check for spark at spark plugs, if no spark and cap and rotor o.k. suspect igniter. If you have spark check for fuel pressure with test guage, if fuel present, check to see if injectors are firing. (noid light will prove this out). If injectors not firing suspect camshaft position sensor.

If no fuel pressure suspect fuel pump or clogged filter.

Good luck and do rate this solution.

Stuart - this sounds like an air problem - you should perform the following test. With the air nailer close to the compressor you must monitor the airpressure after the gun fires. it sounds like the air is not gettting through diapram fast enough or there is a blockage in line. Blockage in line is not suspected for the following reason . It sounds like the air hose is holding enough air to fire 2-4 nails and then you must wait for the line to fill up again and then it fires ok. The pressure regulator out to the line controls this and they do fail. try this test and report back to me - I know I can solve this for you as I have extensive background in compressor and the like.
