Air Conditioning problem
1998 Chevy S-10 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 100, 00 miles
I had a certified A/C tech test and recharge the air conditioner. The testing revealed no defects. I enjoyed cold air but, it only lasted three days. When I returned to shop, I was told that there were probably micro leaks that the testing system could not pick up. It was recommended that I have all A/C hoses replaced, then come back and they would recharge the system again, at no charge. They also recharged the system again and, again, it only lasted three days.
If you are familiar with this vehicle, you know what it is to drive it during hot weather without A/C. Ack!
Having very limited resources, I tried recharging the system myself with a product that said there was sealant in it. Following the instuctions on the label, I charged up to 55 lbs pressure( I think the pressure is measured in lbs or is it ml?). The results were absolutely nothing. No cold air what so ever.
I don't understand. I know the A/C can hold refridgerant, if only for a few days. So why, when I try, I get absolutely nothing?
have the same problem?
