I read a previous review speaking of instructions being bad and it didn't work for that person. I'm no mechanic, bought it, hooked it up, charged an empty system and now I'm enjoying A/C. It was easy, I never watched the CD that comes with it, it was a snap. I recommend to anyone. There may be other A/C issues to deal with depending on the car but if your system is in decent shape, this will do it for ya.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I would recommend this to someone that knows what they're doing, but if you're a novice, like I am, it's very difficult & the directions are not very good. A lot of caution needs to be taken & get some help! I still am driving around in a HOT car because the directions are SO bad. Bad like an IKEA dresser directions.......REALLY BAD DIRECTIONS!

  • A. Take it to a professional and ask to have the system evacuated. R-12 is dangerous stuff, damaging to the environment in several ways. As a result, it is always recovered and recycled, never discharged into the air. The newer R-134a refrigerant is less damaging - it doesn't damage the protective ozone layer in the atmosphere, though it is still considered a greenhouse gas and is legally required to be recovered. I don't know anyone who does so, but it is the law. Have the shop flush and vacuum the system for you, and convert the fittings for R-134a. Then add a charge of PAG-150 oil before recharging with R-134a refrigerant. Do not use the ester-type oil, as it's not compatible with R-134a systems. Haynes publishes a fairly good book on auto a/c systems, and it's cheap. Get a copy and read it before you start...

  • A. spend the little extra money to take it to a shop. Just have them evac and flush your A/C system. i did this with a 91 s10 and then used this kit with no problems and didn't cost much either

  • A. You shouldn't have to remove R-12. Any car manufactured after 1994 (some vehicles 1992) use R-134a. My best answer would be to buy a new car. Unless you have a vintage vehicle your looking to repair the AC on. In that case it is worth the $200 to have a professional do it and make sure you have what you need under the hood....

I have a 1986 Toyota Celica GT-S with 190K miles, and the A/C is cool but not cold, and takes a few minutes to be "cool" (not cold") when it's 95-100 degrees and sunny outside here in Austin, Texas. I converted a few years ago to R-134a. I thought that maybe a recharge kit (1 can 12 ozs?) would recharge my A/C system so it would be "cold" (not just "cool"). I last had my system done when I had to replace the compressor, etc., 4 years ago on 6/2/2007. Do these A/C recharge kits work? If A/C recharge kits work, the ones with the gauge, would I use just one 12 ozs. can? Are the kits easy to use ("user friendly")? Thank you for your time to answer my questions, which may help other Walmart customers with the same or similar questions.

  • A. It always takes time before the A/C comes out cold. That is normal. When the temperature gets hotter outside, the air conditioner cannot blow out as cold of air as when it is 20 degrees cooler outside. There is a limit on the change of temperature drop of air entering and air leaving the evaporator coil. Also the hotter it gets, the condenser coil has a harder time giving up the heat that it has picked up. If you have to add refrigerant, you must have a leak. Larger leaks cannot be fixed by just adding more refrigerant. The leak must be fixed. With small leaks, adding more refrigerant might last a month to a year before it leaks back out again.

  • A. Yes, they work, and they are "user-friendly." But that's only true if your system is otherwise okay. The gauge only checks the low pressure side of the system, not revealing other possible problems than a small leak. If you have a compressor problem, or a blocked orifice tube, or any other problem on the outlet side of the compressor, you won't know it without using a full gauge set. Still, it won't hurt to try one. If you need more than one can, you probably should have it checked, since you very likely have other problems. Leaking a couple of ounces a year isn't a big deal, but more than that indicates bigger troubles.

  • A. Worked like a charm in my 1997 Ford Explorer. The unit comes with a "dummy gauge" to prevent over filling. The instructions are easy to follow, and the total repair time was about 10 minutes. Note: I did need to purchase an additional can to get a "full charge" reading on the gauge. That was three months ago, and my Explorer has been transformed from an oven to a freezer (it gets very VERY cold when I turn the AC to high). Compared to the $100 I was quoted by pretty much every local auto repair shop just to look at the AC system. I fixed it for half that. . .

Is there any way to remove the air or moisture in the lines before recharging? Had to replace a hose.

  • A. Yes. Reclaim all refrigerant out of the sealed system. Install a new filter drier. Place high pressure nitrogen in system. Let it all out. Place sealed system on a vacuum pump for several hours. Disconnect vacuum pump. Then recharge system with refrigerant.

  • A. The only way to remove air and moisture from the system is by using a vacuum pump. This is a lot less expensive than professional shops would like you to believe. You'll need a gauge set that reads vacuum - about $100 - and a pump. The pump costs between $200 and $300 for a decent, though not professional quality unit. Hook up the gauges and connect the pump to the fill line. Open the valves and let 'er rip. After you reach full vacuum, let it run about 30 minutes to boil off the moisture in the system. Shut the valves, shut off the pump and disconnect it, then attach the juice bottles. Don't forget to replace the oil you lost when you changed the line, else you'll blow the compressor when you run it. I'm not an expert, by the way - I just happened to do this last weekend, and all is well. A bit chilly, in fact...
