Air Conditioning problem
1995 Buick Lesabre 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140K miles
Re: 1995 3.8 L engine, R1`134a refrigerant. My A/C wasn't doing a good job in cooling and went to zero and before I had a chance to recharge, the clutch bearing failed so I replaced the whole unit with a reman compressor/clutch assembly. The system has a 2lb capacity, so I bought 3 13 oz cans of the refrigerant and plugged the filling device in to the low end valve. I started the engine and put the A/C on high with the temp set on lowest. I put one can in and the clutch would not kick in. Thinking that I needed more, I put the other two cans and it still wouldn't kick in. Just to see if there was anything in the system, I pushed down the valve on the high end and got nothing. Does this mean that nothing went in to the system? What next?
