AC recharge


Recommended Posts

The shop wants about $168.00 to check and recharge my Z32 ( 280 is cool as ever) system which cools to about 75 degrees. Sounds like alot to me, in autozone I saw those cans for $14.00 which you can recharge yourself but sounds too easy of a fix or too good to be true. Add ac to the list of things "I know nothing about".

I had an ’86 Mazda B2200 truck with a R12 system, which was pretty much empty. I bought one of those R12 to R134a conversion kits at my local Kragen and charged it myself. After a year it was still blowing cold. There’s nothing wrong with the DIY kit as long as you don’t overcharge your system.
