has anyone converted their A/C system to R134a refriderant? Was there any special process involved or can you just add new R134a to the system? Where did you get the adapters to fill the system with R134a? Its fixin to get hot down here in Tejas any help would be appreciated.

on my sami.....

update....compressor and condensor fan will not kick on when A/C dash button is activated (although the switch is lite up)

added some r134a till a had 25psi in the system....jumpered the compressor direct to the battery....compressor clutch engages and puts a load on the engine....but no cooling? when I touch what I understand to be the discharge line it is hot?

not sure where to go from here??????

I know only of a compressor that can be used as on board air when needed,

j/k, sorry havent done it to my zuke, but I had my old s10 converted, it worked fine and wasnt hard at all.

it is easy to convert. ay parts sore has the kit to put r 134 in your system. you would just have to get the old junk out. the kit comes with all the stuff you need. good luckbigok

Just having pressure does not in it self trigger the compressor, there has to be a high and low side, possible expansion valve failure could cause the compressor not to operate, but then again a/c techs are a whole different animal, and I'm not one of them.
