I recharged my ac....and now the compressor is going nuts. Cycling on and off every few seconds. I know that it makes a metallic noise when "engaged." Is it shot? I was trying to be proactive for summer, now I'm thinking what else?!

Maybe you didn't charge it enough OR you have a leak and your charge is gone already.

Yes to both. Sure sounds like a low charge.

Do you have gauges or know anybody with some, so you can watch the pressures?

Added more charge, now it's working! Not that we need it now, but soon. Thanks. The battle station is just about operational.

Good to know
Just got my lesson on charging AC's today
Seems my manhandling of the compressors & lines may have allowed our 2 DD's to lose charge
Will try this myself ......maybe this weekend

I went out last night and put more charge in, and it was blowing cold, although hardly the time when I needed it. Hopefully it lasts. If you need recharge Target actually had a better price than autozone. 14oz for ~$26buck comes with the gauge. 11 for 12oz if you already have the gauge. I did three cars yesterday. Bring the heat, the beach wagon awaits. Anybody have tips on getting a hitch? Deals? Tales of wonder. I want to get one.

Tips on getting hitched? Mhhh.

I guess there's certain bars or with recent technology there's been some dating websites started.

I'll ask my Wife?! It probably also involves "hooking-up"

Well, the hooking up part is easy. Get yourself some tall gears and sticky drag tires.

You should be good Wink
