Vehicle Air Conditioner Repair and Service

by Woodsbum

Seems like I have been spending about 75% of my free time repairing vehicles as of late. This last weekend was not much different. I had to do some repairs that required me to pull vacuum on my air conditioning system and refill it. Since I seem to be the only person I know that has ever successfully fixed their own A/C system I felt inclined to include a few videos here to help other people out a bit.

This video is about recharging their A/C unit. You will need a manifold that can be picked up from Harbor Freight for about $50 when they go on sale.

The other thing that goes wrong with these systems is associated with the condenser. Here is a video that teaches you how to clean your condenser and get your A/C back in shape for summer.

Although this is a bit of a departure from my normal posts, I get a lot of questions about A/C. Getting the tools and spending some time under the hood of your vehicle has saved me thousands of dollars throughout the years. Considering how easy it is to find videos that explain how to DIY, there really is no excuse as to why you can’t do things at home. Have some fun, save some money, and spend that money on new toys!!!
