Can I recharge the air conditioner unit with r 34 rather than r 12 if the unit is completely empty..87Ford thunderbird turbo coupe
Yes you can, however the connectors are different and you will have to get the retrofit set unless you have the adapters. R134-A took the place of R-12, so the molecules and makeup are almost the same. I am an A/C and Refrigeration service technician, so im not just talking from heresay
You can use the new R134 but you will need to buy a retrofit kit. These are available from most Auto Parts houses. Just check in your local town and see who is the least expensive.
