2001 Infiniti G20 A/C problem
Trying to diagnose my 2001 Infiniti G20 A/C issue, heres the details:
-A/C Blows warm air
-2yrs ago had system flushed, checked for leaks (got a report of no leaks),
and refilled---super ice cold air for about 1 week and back to warm air
-Refilled with a can bought from Walmart, Cold air for another week, then
back to warm air.
-Checked pressure in low side, near zero
-To test if the compressor was good, I added just enough R134 to the
system, and it did kick on, no squealing or lock ups
You have a leak in the system and you will continue to leak refrigerant. You will need to find the leak, make the repair and recharge the system..
You can us this dye to find the leak...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x18WHe-ZCY0
Thanks, that is what I figured, though weird it passed the leak test at local maint. shop. Hmm, guess I will leak test myself.
If it is taking a week to leak out you can add some 134a freon stop leak from auto zone. Put some in my friends vehicle and it had a leak that would only last about a week when charged put in stop leak at beginning of summer talked to him a few days ago and he said it is still cold.
Check the o-ring while car running fill with coolant, have a spray bottle of water ready and spray amongst the hosing and compressor area, if within the hosing that connects to the compressor, most signs of leakage comes from the o-rings.
