If not-as-cool-as-it-was is a symptom of overcharging, that sounds like the culprit here! Three years ago we had a new compressor installed by a Honda dealer the old compressor was a sanden, but I don't know what it was replaced with. Valeo is a global company that engineers thermal, powertrain and other automotive systems with emission reduction and intuitive driving in mind. In areas with lots of small insects, you can pack a condensor up pretty bad. So, any ideas what's going on here???? The Schrader valve core on the low side was broken and fell into the metal tube leading to the evaporator when I tried to remove it. Most relief valves let go at 400~450 psi.
Numberdummy, any thoughts on this one? But after a few weeks the valve blew again. Besides boasting a friendly staff, we ensure that our employees are well trained and qualified to help you. But if you don't want to fool with Ac systems, then have the shop pull the vacuum and recharge the system. As for the missing valve core - since the system is apart, flush and clean the suction line it dropped into at least. I was in the cab when it went off.
Once I get the system working again, I want to prevent future failures. Four Seasons is a leading automotive aftermarket supplier of air conditioning and cooling system parts. I couldn't see any visible damage, so I figured it blew a seal. I also plan to make sure the condenser fan is working properly. I manually activated both condenser fan and cooling fan and recharged again. I can't find it documented anywhere in the reference material I have.
What year is this Honda anyway? Hondas have little or no reserve in the condensor, and converting them in hot climates can be tricky. Or, do you just replace them and hope for the best? Pre-1995 original factory and even replacement components were probably not designed to tolerate the higher operating pressures of R134a. One thing I would mention though,,,if you see alot of oil residue,I would think of adding a couple of ounces to the system. So we had the system converted. I determined that the compressor clutch was defective. Many of these older Honda's just require a top off as losing an ounce per year is almost typical, much depends on the history. They're built to maximize the performance of Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles and provide the confidence the repair will be done right the first time.
No,,you shouldn't cause any major damage just by over pressuring it. Nick has a lot of honda experience, so I am glad he has joined us here. Replacement brand parts are the most affordable solution for your replacement needs! I saw enough of what happened to know it came from somewhere on the top of the compresor. You are all zeroing in on the same thing. Fel-Pro is a leading brand of gaskets and sealing solutions in the automotive aftermarket.
Doing so ensures that you ordered the exact correct Ford Part Numbers that your vehicle came from the Ford Factory with. But you added the R134a without pulling a vacuum, and I really am surprised it lasted 14 month. We provide Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, as well as Ford Motorcraft and Authentic B lue Diamond Replacement Parts. This one lasted for about a year, which means we had to pay for the third valve. Our goal is to provide every Ford customer with exceptional service, unbeatable discounts and the lowest shipping rates in the business! Each remote controls a pair of air springs and the system installs easily and is covered by a 2-year warranty. Its entirely possible that the high-pressure cutoff switch is dead. I suppose its worth noting that it blew when I was revving the engine to around 2000rpms.
I didn't test it today. And from what I can see, isn't availabe as part of a hose assembly. A recent poster had sucess doing this with his honda, try a search. See product for application and installation details. It is a butyl cellusolve product made for paint prep, and it really disolves organic matter well. Motorcraft auto parts are designed for Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles and are manufactured to strict specifications that undergo extensive laboratory and on-the-road testing. We want each customer to walk to his car with an auto-part in his hand and a smile on his face.
That would describe the behavior. For more information, go to. You will want to be careful adding the final charge to this vehicle. I put a new valve in and vacuumed and recharged and was able to get pressures to 200psi before it release again. I'd like to do as much work as I can myself I don't have a manifold gauge set or vacuum pump---nor any money to buy 'em , and I'd also like a bit of an education. This made me a little paranoid.
