      1fz Refresh Complete As request by a few of you the Cold 1st start in video and new Mud thread is in the works on the coolant boil over/head gasket with great compression diagnosis. What began as a tough head gasket diagnosis that only a leak...

      The Slinky's are back on, I wanted to get another inch of up travel so I could do faster bombing runs in the desert environment where I live. The Dobinson 146VT coils are softer & flex better for rock crawling but the Skinky's have a firmer...

      Problem solved! Turns out one of the bolts securing the seatbelt mechanism to the frame is a great grounding point. And the location was ideal for easily running the wire through the same grommets used by the window/lock wiring and hiding it...

      YES....good plan of attack.

      Yes, you can pull the compressor after the refrigerant is recovered, but hardly anybody "services" compressors. If there is something wrong with it, that will be determined while the compressor is still in the vehicle and running. If it's noisy...

      @landcruiser3DP you're confusing "air" with "gas". There are four states of matter: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. If your refrigerant is solid, then you have parked on the far side of the moon. If it's plasma, then it would appear that...

      ^^^^ Actually there are 5. There is what my Wife says 'Matters'. Somehow.....we always have to go with that. :frown:

      Yeah, lets not overwhelm the OP. he needs enough information to be safe and effective. He doesn't need to learn to be an AC tech. But that is good info about the temp and static pressure not matching up, a good place to start when he gets his...

      Correct. Static pressures have a use. Contamination is one (though you'd have no idea how bad). Static pressure will also reveal if there is enough liquid refrigerant in the system to satisfy the minimum pressure required by the binary switch to...

      You guys are sharing great information but I will repeat again that the chart is useful in confirming there is air in the system. Air is a noncondensable gas and will raise the pressure of the refrigerant for the given temperature. If the static...

      ^^^^^ I would like for you to take a sheet of paper and place it over the lower half of the diagram and NOTES written there....and never look at it again. As most of it is wrong. In fact, anyone reading this.....please disregard the notes. I...

      Nope. And that is part of the problem when a system has been 'serviced' several times but a complete evacuation and flushing has not been done. It is common place for techs/DIYers to add refrigerant that has a couple of ounces of oil in it...

      ^^^^ This is almost certainly what happened (no evacuation or poor evacuation). Drier desiccant is saturated and at some point will break down and travel to his new TXV where it will clog the screen. I have no doubt there is both air and...

      X2 on not dumping the refrigerant to atmosphere. There are homebrewed methods for "recovering" the refrigerant into a container, or you can pay a shop to use their expensive machine. That machine then performs a recycling process by which the...

      Before you go opening up a system that does not appear to be low on refrigerant, let's try to do something about the high pressures. You talk about cleaning the condenser, which is the heat exchanger in front of the radiator, but then think you...

      So… wasn’t planning on doing this, this weekend, but things happen for a reason… PO stripped out the bolts to the IAC… I got the screw out, but this happened, in the process… gonna crack open a beer and cry for a bit. Then I will pick myself up...

      I was going over this thread and re-reading it. I realized who Cesar is, he's my go to guy for exhaust also.

      Wouldn't you know it. I found out about @Mauser 's services right after ordering an ECM and Key from an online source. I will either see about returning this one, or will send my old core to @Mauser .

      Thin skin much? There's a reason so many on this forum pound the OEM drum on a number of parts. There's enough experience showing that alternatives from the aftermarket are inferior. Nobody means anything personal by recommending OEM or...
