Following instructions, the gauge showed low pressure. When I added half a can of refrigerant, the pressure on the dial decreased. But the cabin got cooler. After running the a/c for a while the compressor started knocking and the dial swung up and down. then the dial popped off, releasing some oil. Don't trust the gauge!

        Experts tell you it should cost several hundred to get this luxury into the old beater again, but it doesnt need to anymore. I had ice cold air in,minutes and has worked just fine. I feel I should also mention I put this in my 1990 lesabre, so not too worried about the car.

          This kit is nice, but there is more to the conversion than this. The receiver/dryer should be changed before replacing the freon.

                A:

                Hi Mark, happy to assist you! You need to 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. This Recharge and Retrofit Kit comes with everything needed to recharge an AC system or retrofit from R12 to R-134a which includes 3 cans of High-Mileage R134a with oil and how-to-use CD. Also comes with reusable trigger dispenser with built-in gauge has retrofit valves needed to convert the high- and low-pressure ports from R-12 to R-134a EPA approved label.

                Hi Gov, great question! Yes, this Interdynamics EZ Chill R-12 to R-134a Recharge and Retrofit Kit should work fine on your 965 Oldsmobile Jetstar 88. However, it is advised that a Section 609 of EPA Standards mechanic be the only one to perform anything with that type of system [r12] as well as r134a due to its effects on the environment. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified A/C mechanic for a proper diagnosis.

                Great question, Gov! This EZ Chill R-12 to R-134a Recharge and Retrofit Kit can definitely help in getting your vehicle converted to R-134a. There are some other items that will need to be addressed as well for the conversion. If this is a job you prefer to tackle yourself there is some information available online - this information is provided by other vehicle owners and is to be used at your own risk - http://www.classicautoair.com/GM_OEM_Parts_134A_Conversion.html? The R-12 needs to be recovered as well to ensure you are not polluting the air by venting it directly. Many will find that the process of recovery and then vacuum pumping the system is easier handled by a local mechanic. If you need help locating one try our 'Need repair help?' link located further down this page.
