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!!!

Tim Leach: good info thanks

Ash2theB: What about in automatic cars?

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? ?

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

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

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.

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.

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? 

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.

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? 

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

Joao Laxamana: what is that care dude?

Morris Facen: Were can I get them alligator claps

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.

Benedict Singh: Very helpful information. Thanks.

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

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.

Kelly Glover: Thanks for the help!

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

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

dale cornelison: Thank you 

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

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)?

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

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.

Melissa Salgado: Cool , Thanks

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!

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?

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

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

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

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

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?

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Westy: I love this game, but there are some issues I have. One thing is the loading time. Another is certain save points. If you can't get a power monster out in your first duel in the WGP, you're in a spot of bother, because your opponent is able to synchro summon another strong monster on his next turn. And if you lose, you have to watch ALL the cutscene build up again, which can't be skipped. Then there's the first encounter with Ghost, who gives you problems if you weren't expecting him; I had not seen the anime in a while and most of my tough monsters, though luckily not all, were synchros. Then there's Malcom's brother who literally spams effect damage and does between 2000 and 6000 damage on his FIRST turn. (Use Curse of Darkness, as it really helps, as will monsters who can negate the activation of spells). Another save points issue is at the turbo duel with Primo. There is a tonne of cutscenes, followed by a one minute minigame of dodging projectiles, from multiple Ghosts, with a broken hit detection. After this you must face Primo and defeat his Mech-lord Emperor and if you fail, you have to go through the ENTIRE HASSLE AGAIN, cutscenes and all.
SoundToxin: When doing benchmarking you should maintain native resolution (1600x900 in this case) rather than going down to 1440x900 or 1024x768. It'd also be wise to avoid using general terms like "low settings" "medium settings" and so on. It would be nice if you could just briefly show your actual configured settings in the game and maybe even read them off quick. Also, the average joe is not satisfied with under 60fps, so it's a bit odd the way you put a positive spin on running things at 30fps and 45fps. In addition to how well you actually explained that stuff, I think the variety of games could've been better. For example, you started off with Battlefield, a game that is relatively demanding. From there you didn't stray too far, mostly describing other AAA games released around a similar period of time. It would've been nice to hear performance of older games and/or indie games. I personally found your video while searching for how Terraria performs on the T420 for others. I own a T420 with the dual core i7 configuration and the Nvidia discrete GPU. I've been able to get 60fps in Terraria just by turning frame skip off (from what I hear, frame skip can be buggy, changing this would not normally help or hurt performance) but the game still has a sluggish feeling when playing with both the Trackpad and TrackPoint. I was hoping to find out if others had found a reliable way to adjust mouse sensitivity properly. The sensitivity adjustment tools built into Windows weren't making a huge difference in my opinion. I'll continue my research on the topic. Despite what I said, I'm glad to see some people posting ThinkPad performance videos, even if they're not perfect.
