I thought that 134a was just another version of Freon-shows my lack of knowledge in this area, lol.
Thanks Ed for the info and links. I see that there is a weight amount to be put in. I currently have 2 cans of 12oz ea 134a+. Looks like this has other ingredients in it, but the total is 24 oz. VA instructions show 28.8 oz. Should I get some different cans that have only 134a? and should I get another can in order to make the 28.8 oz requirement?
My compressor has what VA says is the required amount of oil in it, but it seemed like when I went to pull a vacuum on the system, when I opened the red valve (The valve on the compressor), it wanted to suck the oil out of the compressor, because it was blowing out of the vacuum pump. I didn't lose that much oil tho, 'cause each time it did that, I shut it off. I wound up just pulling the vacuum using the blue valve.
So, what I will do is program the A/C unit first, and get the sliders programmed.
Then attach the hoses onto the A/C system
Start the car
A/C unit off
Screw the can of 134a onto the yellow hose (do the valves need to be closed before screwing can of 134a?)
Open both blue and red valves
Do I "roll" the can from bottom to top while it is being installed?
After can is expelled, close both valves
Turn on A/C
attach second can
Open both valves
After second can is installed, close both valves.
I just don't want to screw this up, and I do know a guy, but he will go by his notes and I really don't trust having someone do it that needs notes to remember what to do (I don't trust his notes).
I could also contact VA, but there is a correct set of steps that need to be done in exact order and I might not get that on the phone with VA.
I might be over thinking this, but thats okay, cause I surely don't want to under think it, haha.
