Question From jjrbus on fitting lube

I was surprised at how easily my old AC threaded fittings came apart. When installing new parts is there a lubricant/sealer used on the aluminum threads? 134A if that makes any difference.

Jim

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Threaded alone parts I like silicone grease and some have used the aluminum colored anti-seize, brush in cap stuff. Nylog, and or mineral oil for rubber most popular. Avoid PAG refrigerant oils for a lube for these things,


T

Response From jjrbus

Thanks Tom. Now that I think about it, would be difficult to use one thing on O ring and not contaminate it with something else used on threads??

I have mineral oil dripping out of my old evaporator, could I use that for lubing O rings and threads??

When are you coming to Ft Myers to visit? Jim

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Lube exactly what you intend with exactly what you want to use. IDK, used real mineral oil really should be fine. Heard of some using baby oil if marked as mineral oil for "O" rings. I still like silicone grease for any of those the alloy threaded things too. Those in particular you said came apart well? Either had been treated before or might have fooled you and look hard if threads just gave out transferring metal such that they aren't really threaded well enough to work again at all?
Keep assorted products OUT of where if can get into refrigerant. The rest is assorted plumbing and sealing methods.


Again - note PAG oils that seem like and are a lube are also able to absorb moisture and change characteristics you don't want so plain don't use that as lube for other than called for inside a system,

El Cheapo manifold set

Question From jjrbus on El Cheapo manifold set

I vacuumed the system and it seemed to be holding, but did not last overnight. Having a suspicion I tested my cheaper than Harbor freight manifold set and it does not hold a vacuum on its own! Shoulda known better, now what to do?? Jim

Response From jjrbus

Hey guys thanks for the response!

I am on a big hill here in N Ft Myers so I am at 7 feet of elevation :)

I did check the AutoZone gauge before and after I tested the system and it does not lose vacuum.

Did the gauge hold 29 exactly, my eyes are not that good, I would have had to use a magnifying glass.

I watched the gauge after I posted and it very slowly dropped, I do not believe it would hold over night.

So now I am looking at way to pressure test or maybe take to shop to have done. My experience in FL with shops has been very bad and I will avoid going to one. Plus if I take to shop I do not learn anything.
Jim

Response From Discretesignals

Most shops will probably charge it and look for leaks with either an electronic leak detector or they will shoot it with dye. Question them on that because you can do the dye thing yourself. If you or a shop can pressurize the system with nitrogen, you or they could use soapy water or a ultrasonic leak detector to locate a leak unless it was in the evaporator or expansion valve. Don't let any shop try to inject a sealer in the system!

Another trick is to separate parts of the system. For example: If you think there is a leak in the evaporator, disconnect one of the lines at the firewall and then one at the compressor or line connection near a service port. Then get a set of these colored rubber plugs to shove in the end of the lines. Put a vacuum in and see if it stays. I actually do that if I suspect an evaporator leak on something you have to rip the dash out of sometimes. You can also reverse your procedure and disconnect both lines at the firewall and plug those to see if there is a leak on the front side of the system. It is just a way to isolate a suspect leak in the system.

Of course, sometimes things won't leak with a vacuum applied, but will leak under pressure. I've also ran into some compressors, such as an A6 compressor, that will leak out the front seal when a vacuum is on it, but seals when pressure is against it. Just FYI.

Response From jjrbus

Hey great ideas!

I am after this on a two prong approach. One I am asking around trying to find a trustable AC guy, I know they must be out there. 2. I am looking for nitrogen to do a leak test with, I cannot spend $500 on a nitrogen setup, but may be able to jury rig something? At the moment I am hampered, I have done the water pump, timing belt, radiator etc and am not mobile yet.
Thanks Jim

Response From Tom Greenleaf

If you don't have a "sniffer" for leaks than if not visible as an oil or dye leak now you'll need help. They don't rent electronic leak sniffers (I call them) out for good reasons as it would be wrecked too easily IMO.


If at a connection bubble test does work with some pressure especially refrigerant. Compressor shaft seals show oily evidence that's fresher looking if it was working recently.


Leaks you can hear need no comment.


Other trick: For suspect evap and little for tools check for an oily mess where condensate (water) would have been dripping out - should be none just road dust if anything,


T

Response From jjrbus

This system is all brand new, never had gas in it or pressure. The leak is miniscule so not able to hear, an ultrasonic detector might pick it up, but I do not have one of those. I may have reached the practical limits of DIY?
Jim

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Constant issue is when OWNING tools and equipment could NEVER pay off it isn't worth it. Gee - I'd love to own a backhoe to pull a stump out vs paying someone - do the math ya know?


You can do and enjoy doing lots of things that don't run you broke to have tools for that are also useful to have anyway. Think what you'll never touch again or will be broken if you even did type stuff that costs a fortune it isn't worth it never mind the room to store it.
So if you are there the next thing is to find help for the part of the whole job you really can't justify doing yourself or own tools for and quite possibly not for leak finding for A/C.


Think I said it's not always easy with all equipment known. Could be totally a hide-n-seek game. What if the sucker holds pressure but not a vacuum? What if there is more than one leak? It might not leak when tested and really cause hair loss then what? I say it helps to find a tech/person who has done it, seen it and the exceptions for one step like this that you may never encounter again. There are plenty of things the smart way is to send something out for all or part of the fix,

Response From jjrbus

Me again! I went to AutoZone and rented a set of gauges, tested them on their own and they hold vacuum. Tried on vehicle and at 30 minutes it is, did that gauge move or not?? It may have moved a bit, but not sure. At one hour on the 0-30 scale it was about 26.

It was suggested I pressurize system with compressed air. My compressor is old and has no filters, so it seems like it would contaminate the system.

I am befuddled and not sure what to do. I can take it into a shop where they can test it, or just charge it and hope for the best?

What would be my best course of action? Jim SW FL

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

I wouldn't use shop air to pressure check an ac system. Shop air has moisture in it that will contaminate your refrigerant oil. If you were to pressurize it with nitrogen, that would be acceptable.

I think your going to be ok to go ahead and charge the system. As long as it doesn't drop to zero after sitting several hours or overnight, you'll be fine.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Some questions on this: Did whatever vacuum pump even pull 30? Just not stay there or what? You should be able to vacuum just the gauges without a vehicle to know capability or accuracy THEN on to a vehicle.


Again ave. Atmospheric pressure is just a hair under 14.7 PSI such that in vacuum on perfect day at sea level could only max out to 29.92 Hg. Make room for minute adjustments for weather and lots for altitude. Sorry - SW FL last I checked unless you are doing this in a helicopter doubt has more than 25 feet of elevation - check but whole state isn't a mountain where it really matters.


So - do you believe 26 Hg that holds? Truth is it would work but wouldn't be professional to quit seeing that.


Leak checking is an art and can be elusive as all get out. No shop air please as DS said. Nitrogen w a tad of R-22 will leak thru smaller leaks where air or nitrogen alone might not. Case of molecule size - really!


The whole game is what you do and pay attention to will give you the best chance for a lasting fix without contaminating products that can become corrosive and end it for A/C for vehicles not worth that much work.


Again, paying attention pays off. Bad info from equipment is a real bummer,

Response From jjrbus

Hey Guy's thanks for the responses. I twiddled and tweaked and fiddled with this set and can get it to hold a vacuum, but not consistently.

I played with it and noticed that it quickly reach's 29 on the 0 to 30 scale, quickly less than a minute and will hold that for 30 minutes.

When I said this was a cheap set it was $27 with free shipping on Ebay. I should have known better, but all I wanted to do is vacuum the system down and check for leaks before installing new parts in engine area, then take it for charging. However this is becoming interesting and I may try to charge it myself.
Many thanks Jim

Response From Tom Greenleaf

If you trust 29Hg is really that at some altitude* fine. Remember this is the final step before charging. As a leak finder it isn't just can prove it's not tight somewhere unknown. A full vacuum is considered ZERO anything but oil left in system hence really only blocking or keeping OUT 14.7 +/- PSI of atmospheric pressure not holding the possible 300+ PSI of an A/C gas so not proof just a stopper if it can't.
Leak finding is it's own thing.


* Altitude! It does matter to some depending on where you are for elevation both vacuum Hg and atmospheric pressure is different. No atmosphere or pressure at so many miles high where you couldn't be working..........

Response From Hammer Time

All it means is that you can't rely on a vacuum reading to check for leaks. You can still use them as long as you don't waste any time between vacuum and charging. You probably should invest in a better set of gauges. I wouldn't expect them to be too accurate either.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Yes - Jim - If you can pull a full vacuum that will hold for even a short time it might be just fine. Overnight is a long time. IDK what all others consider enough but I say ~30 minutes and know some don't wait that long.


Perhaps get it to max possible for your altitude and then leave it in a state of pressure with a known amount of refrigerant and see if that # stays true for an overnight according to the temperature totally considered. Don't confuse a lower static pressure overnight with a leak as it would be cooler. Chart above locked can help. If pressure later is lower in PSI than the temp in Fahrenheit (must know exactly) suspect a leak or empty if you left it with a few ounces of refrigerant and credible when left earlier,

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Some manifold set's "parking" spot for the connectors are NOT sealed to check gauges so you have to make up plugs to test the set. It should still vacuum against the shut offs before the connectors and show max vacuum fast. If none of that works take them back as NG. You shouldn't have to fix new even cheap stuff and some OK for low use.


FYI - making plugs. Takes a couple more bucks to get retrofit adaptors with same threaded ends for R-12 cars which is plumbing threaded. Then hardware stores will sell plugs for those fittings threaded ends or some auto parts would have also.


Don't expect parts outlets to know what you want. Be sure lower cost set does read vacuum on low side gauge - some don't! Super cheap, like $35US good for spare hoses only really in a jam IMO.


Ask about rentals too, some free with full deposit. If you can't trust holding a vacuum over manifold set you'll never know if a system is holding and can't proceed.


Know that just a system holding vacuum isn't proof it will hold pressure but a must before continuing,

1999 continental ac

Question From gahumble on 1999 continental ac

my ma just returned from the dealer for ac compressor replacement. they did not replace the accumulator. estimate stated compressor, recharge a/c. $1008
in my 30 plus yrs. i've always replaced the drier/accumulator with compressor, also orfice tube. any reply's before i complain would be appreciated.

Response From Hammer Time

What type of compressor failure was it? ie: leak, clutch problem, internal compressor failure?

Response From gahumble

leak. last year they replaced the suction hose

Response From Hammer Time

Although i personally agree with you and many parts suppliers in out area actually require the accumulator be replaced to guarantee the compressor, that rule was put there because of all the shops that don't know what they're doing. Dealerships however have a different opinion on the subject and they really aren't wrong. Since the compressor was replaced for a leak, debris in the system is not a concern and unless the accumulator is so old that the risk of the bag tearing is high, it will still do it's job. As far as the orifice tube goes, they can tell by the pressures before teardown whether it was restricted or not.
I would have done it your way but I trust the job the dealer did.

Response From Discretesignals

I would have done it your way too. A lot of aftermarket and even factory parts won't warranty a compressor unless you replace the drier.

Seeing how it is a 13 year old accumulator desiccant and is getting a new compressor our shop would definitely had replaced it and the orifice too. Replacing it is preventive maintenance. You really don't know if that desiccant is saturated with moisture/acid or is breaking down getting ready to contaminate the system with desiccant. Plus you have the old PAG oil that has moisture in it. Thats like taking a shower and putting your stinky clothes back on, but that is my opinion.

Response From Hammer Time

Seeing how it is a 13 year old accumulator desiccant


I didn't read that anywhere. He did state that the suction hose was replaced last year and the accumulator could have been replaced then. If the orifice tube isn't restricted, it's just as good as a new one.

Response From Discretesignals

He did state that the suction hose was replaced last year and the accumulator could have been replaced then

Could have been replaced or it could be the original. We don't know that unless the OP has the RO copy for that job.

Accumulator is cheap compared to tearing the system back down because the desiccant blew out or it was saturated with moisture and acids ate out the evaporator later on. To me replacing the drier, if there is a big "?", is cheap insurance.

Removing the orifice and checking is a good idea. I just replace them because of the o ring that could leak. They are cheap too.

Response From Hammer Time

That's right. We don't know what the condition of the accumulator was but the dealership made a call to reuse it so I suspect they had good reason to do so. Just because something is inexpensive, doesn't mean it needs to be changed and being that it's a dealership, "cheap" could have a whole different meaning. I would bet that accumulator would have added $300 and since the orifice tube is an entire liquid line on this one, that would have been a couple hundred more.

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

You don't have to replace the whole line. The dealer sells an orifice tube kit. You just cut out the old captured orfice and install the tube kit with an orifice that you can change. Costs like $30 for the kit.

That makes it worse cause you really don't know the condition of the orifice screen on that design. The only way your going to know if the orifice screen is plugged up on a captured orifice is if your pressures go low, by then the compressor is starved for oil because there is no refrigerant flow.

Motorcraft accumulator is like 120 bucks.

$1000 just for the compressor, refrigerant, labor, diag is what you would expect from the dealer. A good independent would of sold you a new (not reman) compressor, accumulator, orifice tube kit, refrigerant, oil, diag/labor, with a one year warranty on the compressor and parts, and flush for that price.

Response From Hammer Time

I have NEVER seen a dealer cut open a line to repair it rather than sell then a new line, nor have I ever seen anyone else take that route either. A good A/C tech knows if the tube is plugged or not. In this case i belive the factory suction line is part of the accumulator so it's likely already been changed also.

This is taken directly from Alldata


NOTE: Installation of a new suction accumulator/drier is not required when repairing the air conditioning system except when there is physical evidence of system contamination from a failed A/C compressor or damage to the suction accumulator/drier.

I know you love to discredit me but you're not going to do it this time.

Response From Discretesignals

I am not discrediting you. I am debating with you. We have a difference of opinion which isn't a bad thing because you learn things for that. I'm basing my opinion on the training and experience that I have gotten in the field.

Look in your Alldata under replacing the orifice tube.

A new suction accumulator/drier should be installed if one of the following conditions exist: - The suction accumulator/drier is perforated. - There is evidence of moisture in the system such as internal corrosion of metal refrigerant lines or the refrigerant oil is thick and dark.

Response From Hammer Time

Those orifice kits have been available for years but no one ever uses them. Everyone, including every dealer I ever saw repair A/C replaces the whole line which is 1.8 hours and a couple hundred dollars in labor by itself.

I too have over 40 years doing this stuff and stand by my answer. The poster is satisfied and this whole debate is unnecessary and just sending the OP all kinds of unwanted mail notices.

Response From nickwarner

Just to throw my two cents in:

Plus you have the old PAG oil that has moisture in it. Thats like taking a shower and putting your stinky clothes back on, but that is my opinion.


My local laundromat is pretty pricey. Please don't judge.

Response From Hammer Time

Plus you have the old PAG oil that has moisture in it.

And that is the reason you run a vacuum on the system. All moisture will be boiled away and the desiccant returned to original condition.

Response From gahumble

i appreciate all the feed back. ma can't find last years reciept and i wasn't in town. who knows about the accumulator 13yrs or 1 yr? i agree with preventive maintenance replacement though. as for replacing the orfice tube with one of those repair kit's, not me! never even seen one. it's blowing cold now but it's only78 degrees. wait till the New Mexico ambient reaches triple digits. warranty is a year. thanks again for all the comments!!!!

Response From gahumble

thank you kindly. if i had the equip. i would of done it myself. i do trust the dealer just have different views. have a good evening hammer.

Response From Hammer Time

It's a relief to have a dealer that wasn't trying to sell you the whole farm for a change. If it was only a leak problem, it's no big deal.

Volvo 244 A/C problem

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From maxspeed on Volvo 244 A/C problem

89, 244, R12 system. I replaced the reciever dryer, expansion valve and flushed the system about a month ago. Refilled everything and had great cold air, then it suddenly went to warm air on a very hot day while I was idleing. Ok located problem, leaking seal in compressor. I replaced the compressor with an AC plus, Four seasons New unit, not rebuilt. Unit came with what it said was a complete oil charge. There was no indication if it was the full 6 ounces or just the amount the compressor carries. Anyway I still had the oil in the system I replaced when doing the earlier swap. Now when I disconnect my manifold gauges from testing the compressor I get a hand covered in refrigerant oil. So far I have stopped filling the refrigerant at just two cans, about half the required amount and still have warm air. What are the symptoms of too much oil? And can it hurt the system? And please do not ask me to comvert. Thanks....Max :<)
P.S. Yes the compressor is running while doing all this. Low side gauge is in the low 10-15 range and the high side is low at 125 or so.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

My experience with too much oil is strange cooling! Ok for a while then not Ok. If way over filled you risk hydraulic lock and disaster!! Only way I know of to know how much is to evac, flush and refill to spec, T

98 civic blowing dirt?

Showing 2 out of 6 Posts | Show 4 Hidden Posts
Question From zmasterflex on 98 civic blowing dirt?

Greetings all. 1998 Honda Civic Lx 150k. I got this car with no working ac so I put in a used compressor (I know that junk parts are no good but it was close to free). I filled up with the compressor oil then with refrigerant. The problem is that when I turn on the ac dust or dirt particles blow out of the vent. Usually this happens the first time you put on an ac after it sits for a while but this happens every time I put it on. The ac didn't work last summer (previous owner is a friend) and the old compressor that I took off was siezed and couldn't be turned (also snapped belt). Is this dirt a)-because of new compressor b)-some other bad ac component c)-normal d)- I've been breathing in too much r134a gas
The ac seems to be working it's not blowing COLD air but its blowing cooler air than the outside heat. Any advice on this topic would be great thanks

Response From Hammer Time

The stuff coming out of the vents is deteriorating foam from the ducting seals. Not much you can do about it. the stuff just rots away.

Response From joemag7

Deleted and another ban

Response From zmasterflex

thanks for the quick reply. Would that explain why I smell the ac gas when the ac is on, or why it's only partially cool? I don't know why the first compressor froze up or broke and there's very little info out there on these systems because of this freon gas business. I replaced it with a cheap used one because it was a quick fix to change the compressor, clutch and the 2 small pieces that attach to the compressor (thermal protector and safety valve). Is there any info out there on how to diagnose the system a-z? Presumably if it's not fully cold with a full charge and I smell ac gas in the cabin some other component is bad and probably caused the first compressor to break in the first place. Any further advice or direction would be great, thanks

Response From Hammer Time

If you had a compressor lock up and all you did is put a used one one, you can pretty much expect the whole thing to happen again real soon. Every time one of these compressors lets go, it sends metal and debri all through the system which just leads to quicker failure of the second compressor, not to mention the cause iof the original compressor failure that you have not found or resolved as yet. The reason there is no info out there is because it requires a good understanding of how the system works and a well thought out diagnosis of what the issues are with the system.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

I don't think you are smelling the gas but the dirt or something in the refrigerant (oil or dye) IF the EVAPORATOR is the leak. Leaks underhood you wouldn't really smell easily. If it leaked that fast it wouldn't blow any bit of cool at you in a day and would be done working by now,
