I have a known leak in my A/C system that emptied approximately 3 weeks since my last freon charge. In the middle of a hot humid 3 day trip to Niagara Falls, my A/C vents started blowing "hellfire." Tries to get this problem fixed at several road side towns were a waste of time..."sorry, you need an appointment." Frustrated and desperate, I pulled into a Advance Auto and the salesdude recommended AC Pro. I installed this stuff in the parking lot and in less than 10 mins I was back on the highway in A/C heaven. Note: My previous A/C charge (lasted 3 weeks) was done by a reputable shop in Long Island...they injected dye to detect the leak. My "desperate" charge with A/C Pro is going on 4 weeks with no signs of leakage...still seeing green and bubble in sightglass. Don't know if it's the sealing properties of this stuff, but I'm a COOL happy dude!

Tried it on my 2009 Ford F150 - gauge didn't work at first but didn't know it at the time - once the gauge started working, I had already overcharged the AC. Had to take it to a mechanic to fix it - he had to remove 3 ounces of freon. Had plenty left in the can so I decided to try it on my 2003 Nissan Altima - Worked GREAT. Coolest air in that vehicle since we purchased it. I would recommend the product but I would also make sure the gauge worked. It was very simple to do and very pleased at the cold air it provided IMMEDIATELY in the Nissan Altima. It even cools now when sitting still which it hasn't done in years. Give it a try.

Comments about AC Pro Professional Formula Refrigerant with Gauge and Hose (20 oz.):

I have over 270,000 miles on my 2002 Pontiac Aztek and over the years and miles the refrigerant has gradually escaped. I have charged many cars back in the "old days" of R-12, but I seldom work on cars anymore and I have never charged a system that uses R-134a until now.

It is very easy to use, even for someone who knows little about cars. This will work on any vehicle that uses R-134a, it will NOT work on older vehicles that use R-12. I appreciate the long braided hose as the service port is tough to get to and located between the front exhaust manifold (hot) and the fan (moving). If you have such a vehicle I suggest putting the hose on and taking it off with the engine not running (although you must have the engine running and air conditioning on in order to charge it).

One thing I should note: If your low side service port is on a suction accumulator (aluminum tank near the firewall), you should not have a problem. However, if your low side service port is on the suction line feeding directly into the compressor (like mine) I suggest keeping the can upright whenever the trigger is pulled. Shake the can vigorously before connecting and shake it while charging.

My air conditioning works like new again!

    Comments about AC Pro Professional Formula Refrigerant with Gauge and Hose (20 oz.):

    I picked up a AC Pro recharge kit after my 2002 Nissan Frontier started having trouble cooling when the ambient temperature got above 80°. I have to say, this is by far the best R-134a recharge kit that I have ever used. For starters, the gauge is very accurate and even includes a temperature calibration dial. Also, the hose used in the kit is extra long which gives you plenty of slack to shake/stir the can as you are charging the system. After a quick charge, my truck is back to blowing ice cold air...even with temperatures currently in the 90s.

        Comments about AC Pro Professional Formula Refrigerant with Gauge and Hose (20 oz.):

        I have been charging AC systems for years. Never had a problem. I charged my 1996 Crown Vic with this 3 days ago, and the compressor suddenly seized up today. Likely cause is overcharging, however I was very careful to keep the charge levels in the green and not tip the can. The only conclusion I can reach is that the gauge itself was not accurate, or the oil was incompatible.

        Thanks for costing me a thousand bucks.

            For $39.99, you can not go wrong. It was extremely simple to use!First adjust the ambient temperature(starting from 70 degrees F to 90 degrees F), plug it into the LOW pressure port, and squeeze the trigger having the cannister at a horizontal position(so the liquid flows out into the hose)and then turn the cannister upright to see what the pressure is at, and repeat until you reach a desired PSI within the 'V'. Will definitely purchase again.

                      My AC went out and the mechanic told me that it would cost around 200 to fill and recharge the system and he wouldn't know for sure if it was the compressor until he filled the system. I wasn't about to pay 200 for the opportunity to find out if it would cost me more money. I thought for the price this was worth a shot and was it ever. Took about 10 minutes and my AC was as cold as ever. I would highly recommend this to anyone who needs to fill and charge their AC.

                          Hi Ryder, good question! If you drive an older vehicle (pre-1994), the air conditioning system contains R12 refrigerant (Freon). As long as the A/C system has no leaks and it cooling normally, there is no need to convert from R12 to the new "ozone safe" R134a refrigerant. But if your A/C system has lost it's charge because of a leak, collision damage, or the need to open it to replace a compressor, hose or other component, you may have to convert from R12 to R134a when you recharge the system with this R134a refrigerant.
