Ed Hall Posted September 13, 2004 Report Share Posted September 13, 2004 I’ve noticed that the AC performance on my car has been degrading. The other day the message console lit up with “A/C Low Refrigerant”. The car (and most likely compressor) has almost 200K miles and I’ve owned the car for the last 2 ½ years. It has held its charge for at least since I bought it so I’m looking for some expert advice? Now that the system is low, would this be the time to replace the condenser and accumulator? I would like to replace the accumulator because it looks like it is in bad shape. I’m surprised that it even holds anything. I don’t have any way of recovering what’s in there so how much Freon would I be releasing? If I were to just top it off the way it is, how many pounds of Freon would I need to add? Is there any way to pinpoint leaks that are this small? Are there any good AC repair books? I should check my factory service manual. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
