Default Stooooopic a/c crap

recent years, dumb bastards changed from r12 ot 134, then 134a, and so just recently the bastards have changed all the hose fittings, as if it matters.....so to find the close but no bandanna fittings that will actually fit the a/c on the car, the charge/lo side port has a fast attach fitting like/similar to our air hoses....but of course they had to mess with the designs and of course the small white cans I bought some years ago will not cool in the system, so need REAL 134 or damn close, SO trying yet another type of EXPENSIVE BS to get the effing thing to COOL.....

God DAMN enviro nazis.......jerks......

Switch permanently to the 240 air conditioning system and you'll never have problems with the again.

Problem solved. /thread

You got a leak somewhere and no refrigerant. Get a vacuum on it and do a leak down test before you destroy the compressor.

Oh, we went through this last week. You probably have a clogged orifice tube.

My guess is orifice tube as well. I replaced mine in my old truck and it was packed with gray sludge.

Just had our AC repaired today. Apparently ants had gotten into the contacts for the compressor switch
