Recharge Air Conditioner

6 posts in this topic

Im looking to recharge my air condition in my car with a kit. Is there anything I should look for while doing it? Has anyone has any luck doing this or am I wasting my money buying the kit? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What type of refrigerant are you recharging and what year, make and model of the vehicle?

They work pretty slick if you don't have any leaks in your lines and your compressor is still good!!! I've recharged a few and it's worth the risk IMO. Especially on a day like today.

My personal rule of thumb is if you only have to do it once a year its worth it to do it yourself. If its more than that then its time to get the leaks fixed!

DO NOT USE ANYTHING WITH A STOP LEAK IN IT! Otherwise the kits are pretty straight forward. The fittings only fit on the correct port of the vehicle and they usually have some sort of gauge to give you an idea of the amount of charge the vehicle has.

Im looking to recharge the AC for a Saturn L200

I am not up on Saturn models but I would assume that it came from the factory with R134a so no conversion from R12 is needed.

Just buy the kit, read the instructions, charge it up and see what happens grin
