Did this video help you?

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!!!

Ash2theB: What about in automatic cars?

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?

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? 

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? 

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.

Morris Facen: Were can I get them alligator claps

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

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

Benedict Singh: Very helpful information. Thanks.

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

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

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? ?

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

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.

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

Melissa Salgado: Cool , Thanks

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

Tom Gilmour: Love YouTube. Let's hope this video save me from a $1200 bill from PepBoys for a new compressor

D weaver: Thank you and bless you. Yesterday my cavalier's (2001) when running a/c started a strange noise, I noticed hot air, cut car off, started car again a/c was normal, but started acting up again. So I leave off while driving. This may be my fix, wish you would message me, you could tell me why my rear drops on right side when braking. (?) YOU'RE THE MAN!!! 

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)?

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

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

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

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

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

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???? 

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!

Jay Brinsfield: I put a can of this on my car and it did not work, also the gauge did not even move. I have a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor. Any tip?

John Doney: Not trying to be a jerk, but you aren't addressing the real issue (leak) or recharging the system correctly. You need to use a vacuum pump after the ac system is empty. This boils any moisture out of the system and allows the proper amount of refrigerant to enter the system while being at the correct pressure when full.

David Burton: Thanks for the very useful video. Sometimes it's the simplest bits of information that make all the difference. I watched a couple of YouTube videos which said to put the Freon in the low-side port, but I was unsure how to tell the difference between the two ports. At 5:20 of this video you explained it, and mentioned, "don't worry, these connectors can only go on the low port..." Bingo! Just the info I needed to know.

RatchetsAnd Wrenches: No, you'll need a working pressure sensor to have working A/C. So replace that first, gl.

ntangang: Thanks bud. really savedme a whole lot of bucks. I was about to pay $ 900 for a new compressor. for $40 it worked like a charm.

patrick munnerlyn: I bypassed my a/c clutch and filled my car with freon and it worked! Thanks! The only issue I have now is that I have to keep the bypass connection attached so my a/c will work. What am I doing wrong?

419MrSmith: For my car 1995 gmc, you don't need to manually power the ac clutch, it will kick on after you dump about a half can of your 134a in.

yoseph777: Great learning expereince. I just take to the shop! Awesome video! yoseph San Antonio, Texas 78212

RatchetsAnd Wrenches: You measure it with the trigger on.

RatchetsAnd Wrenches: If freon is low or there is no freon your ac pressure switch keeps the clutch from engaging and potentially damaging ac parts so thats why you need to engage it manually like I show in the video. But since it sounds like you have absolutely nothing in the system at first try to add freon without engaging the clutch manually so you atleast get some in to provide lubrication than engage it manually. GL

John Smith: My Dodge Intrepid had the AC go out a couple of years ago, accept... The AC was completely fine, the damper that sends air to the heater was stuck open, and did not allow the air to go through the ac coil, and it also had controller glitches. I had to get it taken in 4 times because they don't make parts for that car anymore. But it cools great now.

RatchetsAnd Wrenches: If the reading was way off and after removing freon and bringing it to the normal reading the clutch is still not engaging it could be either the relay which you already replaced or the AC pressure switch, if you have a manual for your car you can find out how to test that. Also it could obviously be problems with your compressor/clutch or other components which only an a/c specialist can probably help you with. gl

Kevin Leers: This is what happens when you take bad advice and do it like a dumbass.

NYJETCARDINALS: Good video man!!

RatchetsAnd Wrenches: Nice, glad to hear it.

Javier Reyez: so i have a 2000 dodge grand caravan brand new air compressor it just need freon but i was told to put the freon on the high side is this correct or do i still need to find the low port plz help i have 2 kids one a 5 month old and its not funny how how she gets in there and soon we are taking a 8 hour trip we dont have the money to take to a shop right now if you can help me i would really appreciate it you may write to me at my email at shamerey@ymail.com thank you very much for your time

Anthony Ryan Merwin: Game, Set, Match

interlagos80s: thanks for video! does this work with all kinds of recharge kits? is there a certain psi you have to fill up to or just use the whole canister? i heard horror story on another video about someone adding 150-200 psi in their system and their compressor would not be detected anymore..thanks!

RatchetsAnd Wrenches: Yes

Timbo A: i agree, this is very dangerous for the compressor. Just connect the freon can to the low side port, it is very close to the compressor and will go directly to it therefore activating it. Don't be hasty the compressor will kick on soon after :)

RatchetsAnd Wrenches: Yes its not the safest for the compressor but in my case and I am going to assume alot of other cases the freon can wasnt strong enough to force enough freon in there to kick start the compressor!
