1. Why is the AC not blowing cold air anymore in the house?
Check your outside compressor and listen to it kick on and off.
if it doesn't then most likely it is a compressor. If it is a refrigerant leak (freon leak), it is unlikely recharging the system will be the fix. There are two parts.
the "outside unit" and the "inside unit." The outside unit is usually called the compressor. It has the compressor and a big fan.
The fan just blows the air through the outside coils to cool them down. The compressor is heavy and expensive and sits in the bottom of the outside unit. you probably can't even see it.
The inside unit is the 'A' coil and blower. It takes the refrigerant or Freon from the compressor and expands the gas to make the coils cool. The fan (not the one outside) blows the air through your house and since it is blowing over the cold coils, you house cools.
The inside unit is actually taking the hot air out of your house, transferring the heat to the coils that transfers it to the Freon gas that takes it outside to compress the gas and to dissipate the heat from the outside coils. All along the way things can go bad. you need to know if the outside unit is working.
it maybe be a circuit breaker. You know the inside unit is working since you say the fan still blows. There is a small expansion valve in your inside unit that could be bad.
You want it to be something like that. an expansion valve or Freon leak as that is a lot less expensive than the compressor. However, most leaks are not by simple chance and if nothing was physically done to cause the failure, then the leak is not easy to fix and stay fixed.
2. running a ford ranger without a condenser?
in case you eliminate the cat, the O2 sensor will tell the computing gadget the truck is operating too prosperous. the computing gadget, in turn, will lean the gas out. If it runs in any respect, it is going to run a lot too lean and which could actual reason your valves to burn out.
because the leaner the blend the hotter it burns. the hotter it burns, the harder the cooling equipment has to artwork to sit back the engine. The cooling equipment can in reality income this a lot.
quickly your valves burn and which will value you some severe coinage. So, what are you able to do to advance performance and mileage? Spend a pair hundred funds and get a severe pass cat.
in basic terms one stated source is JC Whitney. I priced one for my 2009 F-100 and fifty Platinum the different evening and it became in reality $289. at the same time as you're at it, flow ahead and order a "glasspack" type of muffler.
which will also advance your exhaust pass cost. the blend of severe pass cat and glasspack muffler will provide you a advance in gas economic equipment and power. it is going to also grant you with that deep rumble sound it is linked with the muscle vehicles of the 60's and 70's.
reliable luck and satisfied rodding
3. I have a ducane ac10b24 ac condenser, & it needs a new capacitor.does anyone know the values for this cap?
first of all your cord length feed remains to small. 8g is barely rated for 40 amps. you like 6g to start.
Has every physique taken amp attracts on the unit whilst working. My wager isn't any. complicated initiate kits are for specific compressor varieties,no longer all.
the 2nd dummy out ought to have checked for the leak if there is truly one in any respect earlier even including extra charge. If the unit replaced into completely out then he ought to have pressurized with nitrogen and a hint of refrigerant and found the leak and glued it first. Melted wires comes from over heating which may be countless reasons.
under cord sizing, or over sizing the breaker or fuses to the cord. At this element amp attracts could desire to be taken at initiate and via working to make certain the instruments is interior of desirable working stages. The gadget additionally should be checked for desirable deploy and operation.
The deploy section we already understand is a difficulty or you does no longer be inquiring for help. at present however you may desire to get an excellent contractor to examine the gadget over after which circulate from there. the unique contractor does not sound to warm, besides the fact that it truly is as much as you on a thank you to proceed now.
If opt for extra help then we are able to need extra data on the deploy and technical data on the gadget
4. How difficult is replacing the evaporator condenser on a 2002 Honda Accord?
I wouldnt buy unless Honda did the job, and it passed other tests like a thorough VIN search w/ about 3 services other than Carfax which settled a class action suit for its inaccuracies & omissions around 2007.

squealing AC condenser fan motor?
First of all, your AC condensor outside should only have the fan come on when the AC is on, not when the heat is on, so why would it be coming on when it is below 45F? Usually the fan is mounted on and directly driven by the motor.
Fan blades do not usually make a squealing noise when wet. Most likely the bearings have ran dry and at the very least need lubed. That it's been allowed to run like this for a while (presumably), the bearing may have worn enough that the whole motor needs replaced.
Many fans today are considered permanently lubed but that is nonsense, they just don't put a lube hole in to save money and make people buy a new motor sooner. They just need pulled out, the through-bolts removed, and disassembled like this until you have access to the bearings or the felt oil reservoir rings to add a few (several, depending on the motor size) drops of oil. Standard 20wt motor oil, or even 5W20, 5W30, 10W30, etc will do in a pinch.
If you have a legitimate need to run the A/C in the winter at 45F which I questioned above, then go with one of the thinner oils like 5W20. The only time the blades should/would squeal is if the nut that secures it to the motor shaft is loose and so the blade assembly is wobbling around.
How do I install my own AC condenser in my 1970 Mustang?
First, you need to find a shop willing to charge the AC after you repair it. Most AC machanics won't charge the system unless thie system was repaired by a certified AC mechanic.
You won't find the old freon used in the 1970 Mustang. They started changing over to a new type of coolant for air conditioning systems in the mid 90's and banned the sale of the old freon around 2000. The new freon is not compatible in the old AC systems without modifications.
I suggest you bring it to an AC mechanic and get the job done right. What little bit extra they will charge to install the condensor will only be a small part of the bill. They will change the filters inside the system.
They are most likely plugged on a car this old. They have the correct tools to find and repair ALL of the leaks. If you don't repair ALL of the leaks, the freon will leak out and in a week or so your AC will fail.
They need to evacuate the system with a vacuum pump to remove all of the air and moisture. They will charge the system with the correct amount of coolant and lubricant. Most people don't know that there is also lubricant inside an automotive AC system.
Without the correct type and amount of lubricant, the compressor will sieze and fail, leaving you stranded on the side of the road. You are better off saving up your money untill you can afford to bring it to a certified AC mechanic and have it fixed right, or don't fix it at all. Your 70 Mustang is worth investing in this repair.
7. my ac wont blow cold air if the car is stopped once i put it in gear an drive down the hwy it gets cold?
Sounds like you have restricted condenser.
With no proper air flow the condenser can't condense the refrigerant. Once you start moving, more air is able to flow through, therefore working properly. When your car is idling, turn your A/C on, grab a piece of paper and slide it infront of your condenser (right behind the bumper.
the condenser is infront of the radiator) if the paper is sucked up to the condensor, then it's not restricted, if it doesn't get sucked up to it, then your condensor is causing the problem. Most of the time its caused by just dirt and bugs on the grill and fairly easy to be cleaned. Ps.
If you were to have a leak, you would NOT have any cold air. What you're describing happens only when the car is stopped, which is not caused by a leak. Ps.
Compressor could cause this problem, it could also be an electrical problem. My suggection is, if you test the condensor how I told you to and it's fine, then take it to a certified mechanic because otherwise it can be a guessing game really.and I'm sure you don't want to waste your money.
Cleaning the condensor off you can do yourself, but if it's a more serious problem, then a certified mechanic has to fix it.
