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!!!

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? ?

Tim Leach: good info thanks

Ash2theB: What about in automatic cars?

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. :)

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? 

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

david greenidge: Very clear and well explained. You need to teach brother!

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. 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
