Thread: AC question

  1. #1

    Default AC question

    89 Suburban. AC has not been charged in 7 years. I know this is grasping straws, but could there be a chance I could just try to recharge it and have it work? Or should I just accept that the seals are shot, and go ahead and try to find a new unit? Would it be worth it to even attempt to look at a pull yard for an AC unit?

    Thanks

    You should be aboe to run a pressure check on the system I would think, otherwise a can is usually around $15-20 to recharge the A/C. So even if it doesnt hold it its not too much money wasted. More then likely after seven years of no use and no charge everything has dried up

    If you know anyone who works at a shop and has an AC machine now would be the time to talk to them. After throwing a can of freon into it, it might not work still due to lack of vacuum on the system prior to charge.

    If any air entered your system a recharge is a waste of money. There will be scale that will flake off and plug up the system. Take it to someone for an estimate. They will probably charge it up to see what's wrong anyway before giving you an estimate.
