          Happy to help you with your question Billmill! To check if there is any R12 left you should take your truck to an A/C mechanic they have a R12 evaluator that can get any that is left in your system. It is bad for the environment and illegal to vent R12 to the air.

        what would I need to do to change R12 to R134 FREON IN A 91 MAZDA PICKUP?

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Hi BillMill5050, glad to help you! If you drive an older vehicle (pre-1994), the air conditioning system contains R-12 refrigerant (Freon). As long as the A/C system has no leaks and its cooling normally, there is no need to convert from R-12 to the new "ozone safe" R-134a refrigerant. But if your A/C system has lost its 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 R-12 to R-134a when you recharge the system.

      • Q:

        I have a 1993, Mazda, Miata, MX-5, which was retrofitted to accept R-134 refrigerant 3 years ago. At that time, my mechanic told me that it was necessary to change the low port to one compatibile with R-134. Every year, since then it is necessary to recharge the system, as it obviously has a leak which my mechanic maintains he can't find. When I recently purchased an A/C Pro kit from the Grenada store and attempted to recharge my system, I discovered that the quick connect wouldn't connect to the low port inlet because it was too large. When I phoned customer service the rep' told me that there were only two fitting sizes i.e., 5/8 (for R-12), and 7/16 (for R-134), and that I would need the 7/16 valve. How can this be if my mechanic has been servicing my system with R-134 for the three years? Will this kit solve my dilemma?

          Hi Satch! Without knowing if the shop put a R134a fitting on your car I won't be able to tell you what kind of fitting you are going to need, that being said I don't think this kit will fix your problems, I would go back and ask for a new retrofit fitting, beware if you change the fitting you will lose any Freon that is still in the car.

      • Q:

        I am converting my 1988 firebird transam to r134a. Is this what I would need in order to convert my service valves(screw type for r12) to R134a type? If so, are there any special tools or any other parts I may need for converting the valves?
        Asked on 5/31/2013 by jeffrey from richmond,Va

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Kindly follow the instructions to conver r134a from r12. The instructions are: 1. Discard any R12 refrigerant still in the system by taking your vehicle to a licensed air-conditioning professional. Releasing R12 directly into the environment is dangerous and punishable by law, 2. Open the engine compartment of your vehicle. Find the high and low side service ports for the R12 air-conditioning system. Push the low side retrofit R134a fitting over the old fitting and use a wrench to tighten it. Torque the fitting to 20 foot-pounds, 3. Push the high side retrofit R134a fitting over the old fitting and use a wrench to tighten it, 4. Ensure that all the valves on your manifold gauges are closed and connect the blue hose to the low side port and the red hose to the high side port, 5. Connect a can of R134a lubricant to the yellow hose, open the low side valve and allow the vacuum in the system to draw the oil in, 6. Look up the specifics for how much R12 refrigerant the vehicle requires to work at optimum efficiency; you will be adding 10 percent less R134a refrigerant, 7. Screw the T-valve the top of a can of R134a refrigerant. Start the engine and switch the air conditioning to highest setting, 8. Connect the T-valve hose to the low side service port, 9. Check the temperature of the inside air periodically to ensure that the system is holding the charge and that there are no leaks. Disconnect the T-valve hose from the low pressure side when you are finished.

      • Q:

        I tried to take the schrader valve on the a/c out but its stuck. I have the tool to do it with but it just keeps turning. Any suggestions? Also do you sell the aluminum coupler that the schrade valve goes into if I can't get it out?

          A:

          If you unscrewed all the way pull it out with a needle nose pliers. If its partly stuck, take a wood screw and thread it into the stuck piece. You can just snug it. Then get a pair of pliers and pull the screw out and it should come with it. Unfortunately we do not have Aluminum coupler available with us at the moment.
