auto ac diagnosis
Mitsubishi Montero Sport. 2001. AC works well until the belt breaks. with gauges applied. High side trips compressor off at 350. When rpms are raised, belt slips. My guess, the orifice is partially blocked.(update 8/4/2011) parts ordered, I will be replacing it.
system had too much oil. I allowed the oil to blow out and slowly recharged the system. Working great.
did not replace orifice.
How to Evacuate AC System
To evacuate the ac system have both of the couplers installed and both of the valves completely open. The low side gauge should start to draw a vacuum. You should leave the vacuum on for 30 minutes to an hour. You can recharge the system after you've pulled the vacuum on the ac system.

I suppose this has been a long time coming but for me I wanted to make sure that I made a video that would be useful to you as well as emphasized the importance of good practices when working with AC. Keep in mind refrigerant is a CFC meaning that it pretty much kills the ozone layer and if you don't respect that you WILL cause environmental damage even a little adds up so please follow the precautions in this video when working on an AC system. The other thing about AC is that it involves a lot more than just shooting a can of refrigerant into the system when it's not working right there are many systems that come into play that you need to consider such as; the health of the cooling system, cooling fan operation, the mechanical operation of the components of the system, the operation of the HVAC inside the dash, and the electronics so keep in mind if you're having a problem with your AC it could be much more than just a simple leak. I'll get off my soap box now.

Automotive Repair Video: A/C Leak Detection and Other Tips, The Trainer, May 2011
http://workshop.search-autoparts.com Today's mobile air conditioning systems are doing more with a lot less. Refrigerant capacities are getting smaller and smaller, with some models holding as little as 11 ounces! Leaks that would allow a system to last the whole year before experiencing a problem now result in a hot, sweaty...and unhappy...customer returning to your shop before the dog days of summer are over.
Finding these small leaks is a matter of using the right tools and the right methods. This month, technical editor Pete Meier shares tips on how best to prepare for servicing today's systems, and finding those annoying leaks.
And that's not all...later this month, Pete partners with TST and Delphi to dive deeper into A/C service in a FREE, live webcast this May 26th at 8:00 pm ET. To register, log on to MotorAge.com/ACBestPractices today! Click this link to subscribe to Motor Age! http://bit.ly/MA_YT_freesub

Hi, CORVAIRWILD here. A little about me and what I do: First, I love my wife of many years, she is a wonderful lady. I call her Mrs CW. I can never go anywhere without her & my Dog Muggs! He's cool. You should have a dog like him too. Next, I am a landlord, NO, not a slumlord who does section 8 apartment rentals, but I keep my properties up like they were my own...they are my own! Like I live there. I have lots of apartment buildings, a farm out in the country and a house here and there. I am always doing something, driving rehabbing, you name it! I want to include you, so I bring my camera! EVERYWHERE! Haha.
Did I mention I am a car enthusiast! I can't get enough Covairs and Vintage Chevy and GMC trucks. They have great reliability...all of em' the best vehicle on the road ever is a Corvair Spider turbo. Back to the trucks, I love the diesel trucks and suburbans, Blazers too. That's what I plow snow with. A fisher snow plow. I'm a busy guy, but I make time for you. Thanks! CW
