      I’ve been fixing cars, air-conditioners and furnaces for nearly 24 years and the best way is read, ask and then do it. There is not a video in the world that will make a mechanic out of someone who’s not inclined to do the job.

    8. AndrCurrie says:

      Charge the system to the amount the car takes (theres usually a sticker saying for example 2lbs 12oz of R134a) and hook up your gauges checking for the right pressure on the high side as your compressor creates the pressure and there is no real test for flow.
