Sweet, I just preordered the expansion valve from kragen.

So you only used 1 can of r-134a? Did it have a gauge on it and did it contain any of that sealer stuff? I think I read our cars take around 14-18 ounces and 1 can is 12 oz. I'll probably try 1 can first and see how that goes. I have an old a/c gauge system but the hoses have different connections :\

I can't wait to work on it on the weekend. Fixing stuff yourself feels awesome

ya it feels great and saves money lol.

Yea I only used one can. Figured that would be all I would need due to the fact that I didnt evacuate the entire system. The can I bought also contained the sealer type r134a too.

I got my friend to fill the system because I dont have any of the hoses or gauges to measure the pressure in the system. So i gave him a couple beers and he did it

lol yea.. its pretty hard.

I think I ended up removing the two halves and taking the top/bottom out seperatly... I think.

But yea, its a pain lol, and the white plastic around the valve isnt fun either lol
