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!!!

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.

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

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!

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

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.

Ash2theB: What about in automatic cars?

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!

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.

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

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.

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

Tim Leach: good info 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)?

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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.

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

Kelly Glover: Thanks for the help!

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? 

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? ?

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

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

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

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

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? 

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

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.

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

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

Joao Laxamana: what is that care dude?

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

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?

Melissa Salgado: Cool , 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.

Benedict Singh: Very helpful information. Thanks.

Byron Stephens: So just for clarification purposes, the clutch is engaged when the flywheel/fan-belt is turning? Is that right? 

dale cornelison: Thank you 

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.

Morris Facen: Were can I get them alligator claps

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

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