Paul Dimofte: but in the good way

NETWizzJbirk: Try it on a Mazda 3... You get to remove the Receiver/Dryer, bumper, headlights, bumper support, and entire Radiator.

Irwin Yuen: Looks like I have A6 GM AC compressor. Looks like it's about $60 for tools and $40 for the seal. Can I remove the clutch/pulley and shaft seal without needing to remove the Freon from the system?

Paul Dimofte: you are a litle bit more crazy

Irwin Yuen: I have 66 Chevy that had the AC rebuilt before my purchase of the car and I am seeing a green dye that coming out of the compressor clutch that sprays a thin green line on the inside hood of my car. I guessing it's the shaft seal of the compressor and the leak stops when the engine get's warmed up. The AC is working and I do get cold air now. Is the oil/ green-dye and Freon in the same system or is the oil/green-dye separate from the Freon? Do you suggest adding a AC sealer to the Freon?

Paul Dimofte: i dont have a car ((

Paul Dimofte: see it

giova240: how bad is it to put water instead of coolant???

John Jay: say I have really good question.. my aunts car 2003 dodge stratus.. blows cold air then stops.. the refill gage shows its low.. havnt re charged it yet.. but I don't want to yet because I think I smell free on in the air vents.. could this be a small leak?? I am not an A/c tech.. I have worked on cars but not a pro with a/c thank you for reading

38911bytefree: Scotty, have a question nothing to do with the actual vid. A friend's of mine 97 Accord start form cold at about 2K to 1K5 .... it slowly goes down, stays a little at 1K and then drop to about the half of the 1K range, I'd said, like 500 or 600RPM. Is it normal ? I guess noT. Where do you would see frist. Thanks Scotty. Nice vid as usual. Abrazos.

Phill P: I just replaced my compressor, condenser, accumulator, and orifice tube and am having trouble recharging. My 97 chevy silverado is supposed to take 32 oz of 134a but will only accept about 20 oz. My gauges are reading normal at 35 psi for the low and 250 psi for the high. I checked the orifice tube to see if there was any blockage; it was clean. Do you have any ideas as to why the system will not accept the last 12 oz of refrigerant?

melvinho92: Hey scotty ive been having a po444 purge solenoid code and today i got a new code which is clyinder #2 misfire po302 what should i check? Also my car has been sometimes a bit harder to start and get a rough idle at times thanks again!!!

bikeboy0012: Dude there's no finesse when you work on cars

Scotty Kilmer: one gigantic pain in the butt job, you have to take most of the dash out. Get a cheap manual with pictures and directions

kukelz: Wow that last car is nice..

dennis mcclintock: Where do I stick my pickle in?

William Baldwin: How would you get to a leaking evaporator core on a 2006 Dodge Caravan SE?

spelunkerd: This vid is one of a car's A/C system, which of course has no water. I believe you're talking about engine coolant, unless your question was a sarcastic joke. Yup, it's bad to put tap water into engine coolant because the ionic impurities will contribute to electrolytic reactions that damage metal surfaces inside the engine. Use distilled water or deionized water or premixed coolant, not filtered water or tap water or bottled water.

EngineerLikesFarming: what do you define as most older engines?? 90's? 80's?, 70's? or even 60's? gas? diesel? American? European? Japanese or Asian? come with some facts and not populistic statements or dangerous half knowledge. I am not talking about vintage cars (30 years ++). A min regular oil change on all the vehicles I have worked with have 10.000km ( 6.000miles) including gas or diesel engines

Boocho88: hey Scotty what was the moust expensive car u fixed :)

Scotty Kilmer: prices vary widely, always call around a few places and compare

bunning63: How the home renovations coming on?, another great video by the way.

J Proctor: Drier built into the condenser? Seems like a good idea but what if the compressor fails. You have to replace the condenser too?

Daniel M.: Question scotty,, sure need some help, my buddy has a 99 Toyota rav4 and we have replaced the timing belt with your video last summer, and since then its got cut again, twice and were, back in there, and seems like the belt isn't staying tight, and we put new spring and tensionor on there, and its still not getting the belt fully tight, Any Advice Scotty. Thanks Scotty, #1 Fan Daniel Savannah,GA

gaytardaid: scotty how do i change headlight fluid? please help

Scotty Kilmer: ac systems use PAG oil to lubricate the compressor as the system runs.

jay gresso: ii have rewired a hot on many ac pumps I came across a pump with 2 wires going into it can those be rewired as well Cadillac or vw not sure now which it was have a good vacation mr kilmer

ShortyzProductionz: I have a 1996 dodge cummins and the ac doesnt work. The ac clutch would kick on for a fraction of a second but would turn right back off. So I tried refilling the system and still does the same thing. Should I look at the condenser or what? What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance

kevreilly7: depending on where you live and age of vehicle,,,you might want to consider bypassing it

Scotty Kilmer: AC air is very cold, outside air in summer is generally hot and humid. So when it hits a cold Ac evaporator, guess what? It creates rain, which then drains under the car. Normal if it's humid outside.

Richard Peck: Scotty do you have any videos on honda accords 1990

eric bocanegra: I love ur videos. Awesome work

htowniron: Hey Scotty I was wondering if you live in the Houston area? Also if you do how much would you charge to replace ac compressor, orifice tube and drier on a 1999 Chevy silverado with a 5.3 liter v8.

Dan von Volksburg: Hi Scotty,good job.the condenser was easy to replace,which car was it? On my Golf 3 u have to tear the whole front of to get the condenser replace! Cheers Dan

Steven Garcia: no compression from 98 merc sable 3.0 have spark and timing chain ok

Scotty Kilmer: not much really, you evacuate out the old stuff and put in 4 or 5 ounces of pag oil and and 80 percent load of R 134a as the molecules are a different size than freon.

Scotty Kilmer: a restriction anywhere can cause that, a condenser, an expansion valve, or a bent ac line

Scotty Kilmer: no, I film by myself so I never fully close em

Fred Nameni: thanks for your great performance

archalk1: Hi Scotty, the rear driver side shock is now broken and is leaking fluid about a week ago and is knocking sometimes over bumps, should i get it replaced or wait til the other rear shock goes and get the two replaced?

eltrouble: No problem.

Leonardo DaVinci: Gotta love this guy.

Scotty Kilmer: pay someone with a recycling machine to take it out

Scotty Kilmer: evacuate the system and fill it with a factory load of refrigerant. Just sitting, all systems leak out the rubber seals.Use them, and the oil inside the ac lubes the seals so they don't leak.

ErmaTheKitteh: Hey Scotty, could you please help me with my AC problem I'm having with my car? It just blows hot air and it worked hours beforehand here's a link to the video /watch?v=TqO-tjQHAm4 or if the link doesn't work it's on my channel. Thanks in advance.

ncrdisabled Submarine vet: That was easy the big cost is one of those a/c pumps. I had a 91 camry with r12 2 years ago it was blowing warm I watched your videos back then and refill it with r12 . I got 2 cans and the fill kit at a yard sale for 30 bucks. Mine only took 1 can . To bad the car was totaled back in july 2102 and it left me and wife in wheelchairs . There is big hope she will be able to walk again Me there not to sure. Yes we're suing!! He said his dog jumped on his lap and he lost control hitting us at 70mph

Joey Matias: Scott I need your help, how do I turn on my ac on my 99 cadillac devill, it says AC OFF ... How do I turn it on.. It's hot out here..

EngineerLikesFarming: 3 months or 3000miles.... LOL ... are you a shareholder of Exxon Mobil or Chevron?? I think it depends on which vehicle you drive... on new car's it's more than common to change the oil every 30.000km (~19.000miles)

axenz axtiz: Hi Scotty, are you enjoy fixing car or make a lot of money. Thanks for the video
