With AC front and rear running full blast, add refrigerant until it comes back to the compressor cold and sweaty. That is when both evaporator are filled, when suction line is cold and sweaty. My little VW took 30 ozs. I don't know what yours takes but you may find a label under the hood saying how much.

It holds 30 oz.of R134. Temperature is relevant to refrigerant the warmer it gets the higher the pressure. If the air coming out of the ducts feels cold and "Crisp" you have enough. A/C service centers usually evacuate all the refrigerant and recharge with the specified amount. I hope this helps. Take care.

    i add 24 OZ.of R134.the pressure on the gauge is a little pass 55 psi. the gauge is in the red the air is cold coming through the vent did i add to much? i believe the system have a leak in it the pressure was 20 psi. yesterday morning the day before it was 40 psi.

    Refrigerant pressure is relevant to temperature and humidity, if both are high the pressure will be high, if you think you have a leak leave it as is, if the pressure goes too high the compressor will turn off. If and when the system goes low again recharge with refrigerant mixed with Dytell it cost more but you will be able to see the leak and be able to fix it. I hope I answered your question if not you know how to reach me. Take care, stay cool

SOURCE: how do i replace the pcv valve on a 2000 explorer xlt v6 sohc?

On the passenger side of the intake manifold, coming off the bottom about the center of the engine front to back, you'll feel a hose that comes off a nipple. That hose makes a 90 degree bend and goes around to the rear of the motor. Where that hose meets the Y-connector from the other side of the intake you'll find the PCV valve. It's almost impossible to see it with the hood installed, and even tougher to reach it.

A good source of information for Ford Explorers can be found here

THOSE NUMBERS ARE VERY GOOD, THE PROBLEM MOST LIKELY IS A DEFECTIVE OIL PRESSURE SENDING UNIT, HAVE REPLACED 100'S OVER THE YEARS FOR THIS SAME ISSUE, GREAT THAT U CHECKED THE PRESSURE THOUGH, IF THE LIGHT WAS INDICATING ACTUAL LOW PRESS U COULD HAVE WASTED THE BEARINGS IN THE ENGINE.

SOURCE: 2006 Ford Explorer XLT the Blower Fan only works on 4 and 3 Sp

Look under the dash on passenger side and just to the left of the blower motor housing you will see the 4WD control module.Remove the 2 screws holding the module and let it hang down and your resistors are behind this.Remove the 2 screws holding the resistors and remove.
Now I am assuming you have manual climate control and not electonic.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Explorer Sport, diagram to add freon

there is a port and it takes r123a and it has a green port on it but if it's leaked out you mave have to have it vachumed out, if you charge it be sure to get R134a with oil so that you don't burn up the pump, when the thing leaks it loses oil.

No the freon is low around 80 lbs but the compressor won't start to pump in freon.


Put more freon, so that the high-pressure sensor going to close and your compressor will run.

89 s10 how much freon ac shop said 30 ounces and auto parts store said 54 and 8 of oil


The ac system should be between 30-40 psi. If your doing it yourself one small can should be enough. You can buy a kit that has the can with a hose the has a pressure gauge on it. That gauge will tell you if you have enough freon in your system. When you charge it make sure the ac is on full max before charging

How much freon does a 2000 kia sportage do i need i have put 30 psi do i need more


It sounds like you put air into it instead of freon; however, a good rule of thumb, is use a temperature gauge and put it into the air duck. Place the A/C on high and get it to cool around 37-40. That will most likely be enough.

What is the correct oil pressure for 2000 grand jeep cherokee larado its about 75 now. i want to buy this car but worried about the oil pressure.


Normal oil pressure should be between 40 and 60 psi. A cold engine will normally have higher pressure. If you're seeing 75 psi on a warm engine I would recommend having the pressure checked with a manual gauge to verify the gauge in the Jeep is working correctly. If the gauge is correct oil viscosity may be too high (oil too thick) or there may be a problem with the oil pump pressure relief valve. If the gauge is not correct the sending unit may be at fault.

AC blows warm. fan + compressor don't seem to engage.


The system could be low on refrigerant. The A/C pressure switch will not let the compressor run if the system pressure is below 28psi or above 455psi to protect the compressor from damage. At low pressures not enough oil (mixed in with the refrigerant) will circulate, and at high pressures, the compressor seals will likely blow. You can get a set of A/C manifold gauges for R-134a and check the system pressures yourself or get a shop to check it and possibly add some R-134a. If the system pressure checks good, then the A/C pressure switch, the compressor clutch, or some relays will need to be checked.

Recommended air pressure Ford Explorer


I've had two 4WD explorers over the past 12 years. I've always kept the tires near the maximum inflation of 44 PSI - usually between 40-42 PSI. I know Ford recommends less on the door sticker, but my tires always wore too fast on the edges at the recommended pressures. It makes for a harsher ride, but it has been a good trade off for me. The only thing I know about brand of tires is you should use a quality brand of all-terrain design. I've used Uniroyal, Michelin and now Firestone Destination AT with good results. The way explorers cup tires, I don't worry too much about mileage as you're lucky to get 40K before you can't stand them anyway. Good luck. JW
