The group kicked on and I was asian to make the AC system. Has anyone else had this dirty. Now the idea won't generated back on, deep like before. DIY stunning kits tell you to recharge through the low cutie port while the compressor is almost.

But if the system is low on refrigerant, the clutch will never engage. Some DIYers then hotwire the low pressure switch to force the compressor clutch to engage while they recharge. You may get it to accept a charge, but you may have already damaged the compressor before the system reaches full charge. NEVER try to bypass the low pressure switch. Doing so will force the compressor to run with inadequate oil and can destroy the compressor.

Is the AC system too low to charge? Moisture reacts with the refrigerant and oil to cause acid and sludge that can destroy the system. Then the system should be fully evacuated to remove all air before recharging. There is a way to add more refrigerant without hot wiring the low pressure switch and running the compressor. Be warned that I take no responsibility for any damage you cause by using this technique. The low pressure tubing is always a larger diameter than the high pressure Schematic ford escort ac. Plus, the DIY kit fitting will only attach to the low pressure port. Then start adding refrigerant. If your vehicle is an orifice tube system, the refrigerant gas will flow through one of the open compressor reed valves and into the condenser coil.

The radiator fans will cause the refrigerant to condense and turn back into a liquid. But chances are some of it will still reach the orifice tube and flow into the evaporator coil. With the blower fan running, any liquid that enters the evaporator will boil and turn back into a gas. After a few minutes, you may be able to build up enough pressure to close the low pressure switch. So try starting the engine and checking the compressor. If you have an expansion valve system, the blower fan will prevent the sensing tube from shutting down the expansion valve while you try to add refrigerant.

Do NOT hot wire the low pressure switch. If you have basic automotive, mechanical, and electronics soldering skills you can remove and disassemble the CCRM, and repair the failed solder joint. Depending on skill the entire repair takes about an hour. Please post at this thread, PM, or email me. Paul bvoccs Pease send me any info you have. The CCRM should be in front of the strut tower on the driver's side of the car. If you look closely you will see it under the air filter housing. It's a small box with a lot of wires going into it. It just quit one day last summer after being started up in the heat. It blows air, just not cold air.

The heat works, as does everything else I was thinking that the compressor was bad, but now this seems like the most likely culprit. I've just gotten into mechanics, so although I may know some stuff, I couldn't do a job like this flying solo if my life depended on it. Arenzie I need the instructions for fixing this my self. Paul Please send me the steps to fix this.
