They had it at 20 psi I guess for a static pressure. As it turned out I had good vacuum, and no leaks, apparently the R-134 leaks out over 12 years through the hoses, as even with a UV test he couldn't find anything leaking from anywhere, and since I only had 4 oz in the system, they charged it up with 2lbs and now it works, just as it once did. I suffered for 2 years for nothing. Even the fans come on now, when you hit the AC button.
So then the last thing that occurs, before I move on to other cars. I cannot for the life of me figure out. No codes appear for this one, but whenever I go up hill, or turn the AC on, the car has a engine stumble, it'll idle at 1250RPM and rumble a bit, and then drop to 1000RPM, and recover every 2-3 secs while sitting at a stop light. If I turn off the A/C it doesn't do it as much, but it's still somewhat present. This has been going on for many years, and I've been at a loss to figure it out. I replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, screen, had the tank cleaned out, and replaced the canister and purge valve on the pack that's under the trunk. The plugs are platinum, the wires are good, and it drives down the highway fine, just likes to rumble at stop lights and lacks power up hill.
