A/C Not Working
Posted 14 August 2006 - 01:08 PM
When I hit the A/C button, the RPMs drop a bit and it appears a fan is switched on in the engine. The car is pretty old, so I assume I've just run out of juice.
I'd like to recharge it myself if possible. Monterey is beautiful, but an expensive car fix zone, what ever your problems.
Is there a kit or recharge that's doable in a short time? Maybe a past link I can read?

The compressors for these cars have a tendancy to fail over time due to poor design.
If you're not familar with servicing AC systems, and don't want to invest in the equipment, you may be better off taking it to a shop.
You're best bet would be to have a shop inject dye, and check for leaks. If they're are no leaks, do the work I recommend in my retrofitting write-up, and then take it to a shop to draw a vacuum, and recharge it. That should minimize the shop's time & expenses, especially if you supply the refrigerant.
