Sunny Fl Problem
Saint Petersburg, FL
how many 12oz cans of 134a refrigerant should be added to a a/c that needs recharged after sitting for a little over a year. was recently converted over from old unit not long before it sat. no known leaks worked and blew really cold before it sat think it just needs recharging how many cans would u recommend? (its actually a 1989 camero with 2.8 V6)
recently bought a 1989 camero RS that had been sitting for a year or so. Had quite the time getting it running but with some help from u guys I finally did yeeeeeey :-)thank u for the advise it was very helpful and it runs very well now. but now I have moved to the brakes. Calipers were locked up on rotors and caliper pistons locked up as well. Got them off and got new calipers and pads for front, rear drum brakes seem to work ok. blead the rears fine but cant get any bleed out of either front brake about to check lines after it stops raining other than that what else could cause this problem? if the rear work booster should be ok right? don't know to much about brakes lol any ideas will help thanks.
recently bought a 1989 camero rs 2.8 MPFI that had sat for 1 yr but ran before that. it cranked but wouldn't start (started with carb cleaner spray but would immeditly die)fuel pump didn't run checked relays,fuses ect. changed out FP,new plugs (still nothing) was giving me a MAF code got new MAF sensor and relay ,code went away but still not starting. Seemed like it wasn't getting fuel did fuel filter (with the FP)checked fuel feed and return lines and checked fuel pressure getting 43lbs (book says 34-47 lbs)just dosent seem like injectors are firing was going to check them tomorrow wanted to see if anybody had any ideas?
my ? is actually about a 1989 camero RS coupe with a 6 cyl. 2.8 car was sitting for a year but ran fine before that starts when carb cleaner is sprayed in air intake but dies out. I didn't hear fuel pump running checked fuses, rely and elec. curcit all fine changed out fuel pump which is now pumping fuel but I broke the ventilator valve assembly/fuel tank vent valve (Haynes book calls it ventilator valve assembly)(looks like a little canister with only one end attached to a hose)cant find the part anywhere they say its discontinued. Would this keep the car from running/starting? will engine run without it?
check engine light was flashing replaced all coils checked all injectors (all firing) replaced computer (brain) check engine light went off. still misfiring compretion test numbers were between 125 and 140 except one cyl was at 25 pulled passenger side valve cover. valve rocker had fallen out now the hydrylic lifter wont seem to hold rocker in place got it to stay in place for a short period of time (very short period of time) but ran well for that short amout of time before it fell back out why wont the rocker stay in place? lifter was pumping oil out so figured it would have enough oil pressure to hold it in place please help. thanks
