How to add freon to a 2002 chevy malibu


If I remember right, the AC lines on GM are usually on the left side standing in front of the vehicle. Should be one big tubing and one smaller tubing. The big one is the suction line where you add the freon. You should find a plastic cap in the charging port. You need a can of freon and the proper snap on hose connection to fit the big tubing. Some recharge kits have the hose and a pressure gauge attached so you can watch how much freon you are adding. I recommend this type kit. You add freon with the car running and watch the gauge until the needle points to the green area. Watch removing the hoses since there will be some freon in the hose that could cause frost bit or skin burn whe removing it.

How to add Freon to a Air Conditioner or Refrigeration System


Adding Freon to an air conditioner or refrigeration system takes very specialized equipment and years of experience...it would be impossible and irresponsible of me to try to tell you how to do it through a computer.

Let me explain this further….
In small refrigeration systems such as you have in a refrigerator or a beveage cooler, the amount of freon in the system can often be measured in ounces of weight. Many times, just a few ounces. To get these charged correctly takes tons of experience and very finely tuned equipment. Just removing the hoses can release enough freon to make the difference between the system working or not working. Very sensitive scales are needed to weigh in the freon. To make sure the correct amount of freon is in the system, the system must be evacuated to a complete vacum. You need to have a special pump to do this.


To add to this, most small refrigeration systems are factory charged and sealed. They do not have access ports built into the system. To do anything to these system an access port must be correctly placed in the system for proper evacuation and charging. Then also add the the equation the fact that if you need to add freon to your system, where did the exsisting freon go? Finding and fixing very small leaks also takes sophisticated detection equipment.

The next problem is the many different types of freon that are used today. Some equipment has the type used, very clearly marked, but many do not. Only knowledge and experience can tell what type freon is in the system, and then it can be very difficult sometimes.

Air conditioning systems can be a bit more forgiving, but are getting more and more difficult to analyze and figure out exactly what is going on. The many types of refrigerant and variable speed compressors are making troubleshooting very difficult. Add temperature sensors and variable speed condenser fan motors into the mix and it becomes a nightmare.

Heat Pumps are very sensitive to either under or over charging. The only correct way to charge a heat pump is to evacuate the system and weigh in the correct charge.

Leaks in heat pumps or air conditioners are often very difficult to find, also. But finding a leak and fixing to correctly is the only way to achieve a successful repair of an air conditioning or heat pump unit.

So hopefully now you can see that refrigeration, air conditioning, and heat pump system charging is not something that can easily be done without the proper training and equipment.
Oh, and did I also mention that it is illegal to handle and repair any type of system the contains any type of refrigerant with out a refrigerant handling certification in the United States? Yes, and the although rarely anyone has been charged, it still is the law.

Please call for a certified repair technician to repair any refrigeration system and do not try to do it yourself.

How do you replace the compressor? Is there an online mannual? 2003


Physically changing the compressor is easy. Just two freon lines, a belt, one clutch wire, and a few bolts.
But first you need to capture the old freon, which needs a vacuum pump and tank.
It is technically illegal to just vent it, and it is dangerous because of the pressure and cold. (wear eye protection and gloves)
You also need to add the right amount of the right type of oil, depending on the type of freon (a 2003 should be R134a).
But instructions should come with the new compressor.
Then you need to add the correct amount of freon.
If you saved it, then you just put that back in.
Otherwise the instructions should tell you how much to add.

Do you add freon to your indoor unit or your outdoor unit? I have A new 2 ton first co unit indoors unsure what I have outside. Where does the freon go?


I would highly recommend that you get a friend or hire a pro, to deal with this. You dont just add freon, is it -R22 or the new 410A type? You always charge a system from the outdoor unit! If this is a new outdoor condensor, it will be pre charged for the unit, indoor coil and roughly 15 to 25 foot of line set. But after the brazing is done,,, NEVER SOLDERING! You need to use a Vac-Pump and pull the indoor coil and lineset down to 500 microns, before you open the king valves.
If this outdoor unit was used, then does i match the indoor coil? In sizing and type of refrigerant? Need to reclaim the existig refrigerant, pull a deep vacummn on the whole system and then weigh the charge in, according to the tag on the outdoor unit. You should have a CFC license t work with any type of refrigerant, if someone turned you in, it starts with a $ 10,000.00 fine for a start, You need allof the right type of tools and knowlege, save time and money,,,, get a CFC licensed tech,he will know all of this.
Sincerely,
Paul

How do you add coolant to a goldstar air conditioner


There are two lines leading into the unit, the high side aND THE LOW SIDE. tO ADD FREON you need to add a valve to the low side line. But if you have a leak that indicates that moisture is in the unit and you need to pull a valum to remove the moisture before ADDING ANY FREON. There are as last known three types of freon, R22, R134a and this last one I dont even know the name.

#1 you will need r134a freon. #2 the low side service port is located right at the firewall where tha line goes to the evaporator. #3 if wou bought a can of 134a freon with a hose that will hook to it, it will work. all service fittings for 134a freon are the same even though the high side and the low side will always differ
