Did this video help you?

Alexander Degreat: The shop wanted $120 to recharge my AC system. I did it for $20 after watching this video...lol...Thanks man!

KelJenn B: I turn on my AC and it shuts off about 10-15 minutes later, then I have to hit it with something to make it start turning again. Do I need a new one or can it be fixed while still on my car?

Ash2theB: What about in automatic cars?

Kevin Nelson: Thanks! fixed my Wife's AC. which makes her happy which makes me happy

Kris Kett: I used this product and did get the compresson to engage for a short time but then it leaked out, what would be the next step.

azteklife81: I have a 2000 caravan 2.4 , I replaced the compressor on it and it's empty from all refrigerant. Now I can't get the clutch to engage I saw your video and tried to bypass the relay and no luck clutch did not engage . Need help , thanks 

Flaxseed Oil: $10 deposit? Must be in Cali. I just got some shipped from Amazon and skipped the deposit BS.

Chulla Quiteno: Hello I use the can from Walmart but it won't take I press the can but it would stay at the low side of the gauge

Kevin Harris: This worked! Thanks much!

Rodrigo Machado: My AC Clutch does not engage, how can I manually force? Is a ford explorer xlt 2004 6c awd.

noseefood: the correct term is refrigerant. freon is a trade name for ozone depleting r-12. 

L Harris: Great vids. Just wanted to say thanks. I was able to fix my AC following the instructions in your video. So far so good.

Tim Leach: good info thanks

ThreeDriv3rs: Man, you don't have to remove the relay and trying to find the right contacts... you could damage compressor. Your clutch is not engaging most likely because the pressure sensor is not sensing enough pressure. so all you have to do is to disconnect the pressure sensor wires (it's located somewhere on high pressure line) and just bypass those two wires (so the system will think that there is enough pressure) and the whole system should work fine. DON'T REMOVE THE freakING RELAY!!!

Reginellicapone: Thanks man. Almost there. Comp has been oiled, I'm afraid to crank the car though, hoping it won't lock up but I see that all I need next is a can of this.

Andres Nunez: best explained video I have seen in a long time. Strait and understanding talk.

zappa duck: brought to you by your local... how to F ur car up!

chris pratt: Thank you so much!!!!! you saved me sooooo much time, money, and frustation!!!!

rharrison scott: Your video was very informative. Thank you for taking the time to make it. :)

Madellyn Garcia: Please make sure your ac relay fuse is in the right direction, I had a hell of a time trying to figure what was wrong after all the troubles I realized the relay fuse was on backwards and the clutch would not turn on.

Gene Kuk: WARNING! If refrigerant pressure is so low that compressor will NOT engage, the system is full of air!!! The entire system MUST be evacuated with a vacuum pump. Otherwise the refrigerant will mix with air and the high side pressure will be dangerously high. Also if the system is not vacuum pumped first, the efficiency will be very poor. You may be able to add a little refrigerant if the compressor engages and kicks on and off. If the compressor does NOT run at all, there's too much air and you are risking serious damage to the a/c system. Air also contains moisture which is the worst enemy of especially R-134 systems. BEWARE!

Joao Laxamana: what is that care dude?

tony shots: Great video! I tried using another relay that is exactly the same like the fuel pump relay. The rpms starting going up. Why is that? 

Teresa Olea: Thank you now I don't have to go around asking someone to do it for me :-)

Sgard1000: great video, how long does it take to empty the can with the compressor running? 

bigdaddy Suits: I have a question, after you have manually engaged the comp clutch and added the Freon, do you leave the wire or do you put the fuse back in?? thanks

Sal Aguayo: I filled my 98 silverado with the arctic freeze 134a+, the clutch did in gage but it turning on and off. It happens in about 20 sec interval, any suggestions? ?

Morris Facen: Were can I get them alligator claps

mshy mshy: Any ideas on why the ac light may not turn green when pushed? Fan blows, heater works, but no cold air. Was thinking could be freon low but in your video the ac light was still on. Thanks!

Scott Hiltabidle: This video has saved me hundreds of dollars this summer. Who knew I could do this myself. Thank you

Curtis Brunache: Everytime my Ac is on and I stop at a red light my car shuts off. Any ideas why???? 

Kelly Glover: Thanks for the help!

J Waller: Thanks. You probably just saved me tons of money. Got my cadaverlier's a/c running again.

Ray Wu: good point on the open air temporature reference. i always wonder why is there a dial over the glass guage for.. thx.. but are we suppose to add during AC compressor ON or OFF?? i seen another R134A example didnt say that was necessary. all he did was charge can with patience for 15min. his AC temperature resulted 44 degreee cool rather than 82 degrees.

Scott Lee: If your Refrigerant is low there is a reason fix the leak. Adding Freon is a temp fix and often will just leak out and then you are back where you are started.

dale cornelison: Thank you 

Mary Macias: Hi,thanks for sharing this video....XXOO

LINDA SMITH: so was this for a 96 neon don't look like mine it has 2 lines and I still don't know what one to put it in and that is what I type in for how do you put in Freon in a 1996 neon how do you do it but tuvm

jose bolivar: Ijust tray to fix my vk jetta no cooling I did recovery to do vaccum but on vaccumm stay more then a hour and stiil on 15 mercury do not go up to 30 mercury what can I do thanks

ccricers: So I think I might have made my compressor problem worse by trying to push AC Pro into the system when the compressor clutch wasn't working. It wasn't until that attempt that I noticed it. Is there a way to tell if the system needs to be evacuated or just an electrical problem (like a bad fuse)?

Cody Braley: Tt's refrigerant not freon, freon is a brand like Band-aid or Kleenex.

2point0T: The pressure of the freon in the can is high enough activate the low pressure switch, it doesn't take a lot. After that, the rest of the freon will go in unless you have a bad compressor or an obstruction in the system

tony shots: I added freon clutch didnt come on. I also tryed manually bypassing the relay and it still didnt come on. What should I do next?

Benedict Singh: Very helpful information. Thanks.

jamie elrod: What about in my truck I drive a 2500 HD where would I put the freon? Lol sorry im a girl doing it myself and the caps where I think it goes is black and I cant read them! Help! Is it by the coolant and it looks like a silver metal tube? 

Philip Kerimah: thanks for the info. really appreciated it. 

Melissa Salgado: Cool , Thanks

GilH: Is it always connect pin 87 to the + on the battery? My clutch relay has pins 87 & 30 just like your video. But I also have pins 85 & 86 -- They look like maybe they are the power pins. Thanks

Bonnie Metcalf: Thank you for your video. I'm going to try it. My vehicle is 14 years old, too, and I'll bet it just needs a hit of Freon.

allmechaniclist.com: That's great info to fix your a/c
