A/C not very cold. Recharge with A/C Pro?

Post by MagentaRed » Fri May 27, 2016 8:58 pm

My 89 Scorpio A/C is blowing cool, but not as cold as before. Has anyone charged their air conditioner the using A/C Pro product? Was thinking of giving it a try, but wanted to check here first. Thanks.

Is your system still filled with R-12 or has it been converted to R-134A?

If it is R-12 I don't think you can use it. A/C Pro is a R-134A product. If you have converted it over you can use this product, but you may have a leak.

Let us know more about your setup.

The car was converted to 134a by previous owner Saul Rivkin. I've had the car for four years with no issues. It's blowing cool but not ice cold as before. So I figured I would try the AC Pro before taking it to a shop.

It should be okay to use. I looked at their product page and with the gauge attached on top you should be able to add refrigerant without overcharging the system.

Hope it works!

Trying to figure out where the low pressure port is located on the Scorpio. Factory manual is no help. If I pick the wrong port, Boom!

The low pressure port is the one attached to the compressor. The high side is on the top of the filter drier.

Good luck, let me know how it goes.

Did you have any success trying to top off the charge in your a/c system?
