Re: 1999 Taurus air conditioner problem
I was given 1/2 filled can of freon which I dumped into the low pressure port. That small amount of refrigerant was enough to get the compressor to cycle but not enough to get the system working.
Yesterday I purchased a can of oil which I was able to get into the system via the low pressure connection along with a can of freon, both purchased at Wally World. After dumping the 12 oz refrigerant into the system, it began to function with good cooling.
This was a crude approach to my problem and I know that. I also doubt there is enough refrigerant in the system to function properly because it holds 2pounds, 2 ounces but I am going to let it run for a while. Anxious to see if it leaks which I expect it to do UNLESS the oil does something to prevent the leaking.
