    Hey i ran over a dead deer out of state and the radiator got pushed back and cracked my highside line near the compressor. Anyway i took the line off and welded it but the thing is i need to know what to charge the low side to so i can figure out how many cans of r134a to buy. I dont have a chiltons manual, i have the other and it dont have specs. If anyone can help I'd greatly appreciate it! BTW I know i need to vacume the system before charging to get any moisture out.
    -Peace-
    :D

    ya i found it, Im gonna vacuum the system down but i was wondering........ if the factory charge is 22oz low, 24oz high, does that mean i can put two 11oz cans in and it be fully charged or is there more to that? Cans acutally are 11oz r134a and 2oz oil mixed. I know that temp from vent should be around 30 degrees cooler then outside temp and not to overcharge the system but i cant do that with only 2 cans.
    What does anyone think?
    Im used to residential heatpumps, not auto a/c.
    I do have r-22,r-12,r-502 gauges but not 134
    thanks

    the 2 cans should be fine w/ the amout of oil thy add. if any thing you might be slightly undercharged doue to what gets left in the lines and such.

    cool thanks, id rather do it myself and save money for upgrades then to pay someone to recharge 4 me. A guy wanted 70.00 at a gas station just to vacuum down, 115.00 to recharge also.
