  1. Sorry , Iforgot I change the spark plugs and getting current on each wire so is not the coil the wires are one year old the thing that gets me is that from one minute to the next this problem happen could it be the management system because it only happens went the car gets to temperature
  2. HELLO, I have one for us to solve, two days ago went for a ride stop on a bakery shop ,when I got back to the car and started the engine start shaking I said was a litle skare ,so I head home at about 10mph .well got home and check for loose wires and other sign of damage I found the alternator vbelt some what loose so I tiden still looks like is not quite there but i'll fix that. now I notice when the temperature gets around 80c and I press on the gas the Idle starts to drop to about 9000 rpm or less and then it sounds like I have 2 cylinders running the hole car starts shaking like is going to brake the motor mounts so I beleve is the IAC valve what do you guys think about because the vacuum pump and other hoses are find I other the IACV from steve at SJ just in case
  3. Refrigerant Changeover Guidelines. Retrofitting systems that emply compressors manufacture prior to 1973 is not recommended. This is due to the different materials used in motor insulation that have not been evaluated for compatibility with the new refrigerants and lubricants. Failure to heed this advice will violate the U.L. Standard For Field Conversion/Retrofit of Alternate Refrigerants in Refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. R-134a should be used only in systems where the saturated suction temperature is maintained at -10dgF or higher. It should not be mixed with any other refrigerant! The expansion valve may need to be changed. The existing R-12 valve when used with R-134a will have approximately 15% more capacity. Oversized expansion valves can resultin hunting and refrigerant floodback. CONSULT WITH THE THERMOSTATIC EXPANSION VALVE MANUFACTURER FOR THE CORRECT VALVE AND SIZE. Filter driers must be changed at the time of conversion. This is proper air conditioning/refrigeration paractice. The recommended drier for use with all HFC refrigreants is Alco Ultraflow. R-134a exhibits marginally higher pressures than R-12 at normal condensing temperatures. This will not require of read justment of safety controls; however, you should verify this with the system manufacturer or component suppliers. Before starting the changeover, it is suggested that at least the following items be rady: 1. Safety glasses 2. Gloves 3. Refrigerant service gauges 4. Electronic thermometer 5. Vacuum pump capable of pulling 250 microns 6. Thermocouple micron gauge 7. Leak detector 8. Refrigerant recovery unit including refrigerant cylinder 9. Proper container for removed lubricant 10. New liquid control device 11. Replacement liquid line filter-drier 12. New lubricant, oil 13. R-134a temperature chart 14. R-134a refrigerant 15. Convertion Kit CHANGEOVER PROCEDURE FROM R-12 TO R-134a 1. The system should be thoroughly leak tested 2. Record the operating system conditions with the R-12 3. From the service valves using your gauges on the Refrigerant Recovery System remove oil and refrigerant 4. Replaced the liquid line drier with one that is compatible with R-134a 5. Refill with 134-a that has oil this oil is for your compressor dont forget went you evacuated the system you took all the oil with the pump. 6. Make sure went refilling the system turn the ingene on and the a/c to max let it run for 20 m then go for a check again it should have 3 at max of pnds
