The shop manual says I need 17. Is that the smaller pipe? For the first time since I bought the card last November. David An Ac service really should be done every couple of years, if its not working now its most likely low or empty due to a leak. It had leaked out all over the ground. You have some trouble shooting to go do, stick with it I am sure its repairable. I go into more detail there. It seems to have plenty of cooling ability but it is controlling to a too high temperature? He ordered the part and replaced it.
Hi Justin, I just bought a 2007 Outback in a private sale. Based on the problem I am experiencing, do you think I need to go to the dealer? The system is fully charged. I was wanting to replace it myself. I pulled over and let the car cool down for an hour or so. While reading through forums, it seemed like the issue might be the climate control module.
When it blows cold, it blows ice cold. Refrigerant and oil capacity guides are based on data provided by sources such as AllData and Mitchell. Thanks for great site, Ed There is a switch in the Receiver Dryer, yes the system has to empty to replace the switch. While it was still under the intial service plan I had with my dealer, I would have it re-charged every six months, or so, and things would work. What do you mean the fix would be to use it? Could it be something else…Dryer,Orfice valve??? Both the manager and the r made me feel very stupid, again. I picked up some new o-rings but what I might do still is take the compressor out and drain the oil because when I took the lines off it was hard to tell how much oil was in it.
The information provided herein is a reference provided to you at no charge. When I came back a second time, a different mechanic was there that had never heard of my problem. . I was affraid I had overcharged but a friend who has access to a guage set said it is ok. If this is not done it can stall and exhibit other symptoms whenever the battery is disconnected.
It does it during acceleration, breaking, coasting, clutch in and clutch out. Regardless, this is the first I have heard of this, we have serviced several, my In laws own one as does a very close family friend I have spent a lot of time going over the 2012 Impreza as it had a lot of new technology and I wanted to stay current, I have again not experienced anything so radical on any of the 2012 Subaru Imprezas I have driven. I would suggest a spray can type glass cleaner like you can purchase at Costco, then spray it on the mode selector and let it sit for a while, it should emulsify some of the residue and free up the button as well as the others. So I opted to wait. I was told that the suction fitting at the compressor was leaking. My temp gauge never budged until recently.
The ac system may not suffer any change in cooling until the system is as low as 40% below maximum capacity, but will loose oiling and lubrication to the Compressor which can cause premature failure of the Ac compressor. Thought maybe cabin filter was extra dirty but even with removed still does same thing. The issue has appeared to come back. These guys are friends of the family for over 30 years. They said it needed a compressor and speed sensor in the rear of the compressor. Hello Jules, Not without looking at it, sorry. You do need to evacuate the system after the repairs to remove moisture prior to adding the Gas.
Hello Damien, That sounds like it has a low charge. New pump is expensive want to make sure its not something else. Seems to occur more often when car is heavily loaded or when driven more aggressively. I returned it to the dealer and this time I was told that the problem was an intermittent power relay, which was then replaced. Is there a blockage issue or heat expand of seals issue.
As this is rigidly attached to the condenser, the whole assembly had to be replaced. Adding to this is that it is normal to lose about 2 ounces of R134a out of an automotive system every year with no real leaks. Thanks in advance, Ken Hi Ken, So the Ac fuse blows, but I am not sure why you are telling me about the transmission? I was shocked because it was working fine when I parked the car. If the car came to my shop at say 30,000 miles and the Ac did not function as it should we would have inspected the condensor for rock damage just behind the grille if its damaged and leaking we would have given you a estimate to repair it as a damaged condensor is not covered under any warranty , if the condensor was not leaking because a rock or the like had come in through the grille and caused a leak, we would not have performed any service to it, we would have instead informed you that your Car was still covered under Warranty. My non-specialized mechanic said it was the control unit shorting out the system, so I replaced that. Gauges show high pressure on high side of system. Hi i have a 02 wrx with the ac pump cycling on and off and blowing cold then warm air i think it mite be the thermo sensor.
I drove it fairly hard for over two hours yesterday. I compared this to my 98 Camry sitting in the same garage where the pressure hose was hot and the suction hose was icy cold and dripping moisture. Had previous diagnostics run, unable to duplicate problem, no other issues or codes. I pulled it to inspect it, and the hose connecting under the dash. If not that would be ruled out and you would need to look elsewhere.
