Re: [DML] Re: Air Condition at Highway Speeds

eco-friendly??  Never heard of such a thing.  :)

the PO probably switched from R-12 to R-134a..  More
for financial reasons than environmental reasons, but
that is a whole different discussion.

If the system was not flushed, and oil replaced then
it is possible you have damaged the compressor and
clogged the system.  R-134a also runs at higher
pressures, and have seen other DML'ers discuss making
other modifications to the system for conversion.  I
am not familiar with the details, because there has
never been a good reason to convert.

For anyone considering this now, check out the prices
of R-12 vs R-134a.  You will see, it is not worth it
to convert...  stick with R-12.
