1 Answer

you need to change the filter/drier evacuate the system put fresh oil in your compressor, charge on the low side to 24 psi or whatever the spec is on your system....perhaps your system had a leak and the refrigerant was contaminated with ambient air...probably is still okay if given half a chance~
