Re: 2006 V70 134A Freon Charge Amount

The Nissens is probably good at $75. According to FCPEuro, it is made in China. Valeo is OEM, but it is $200. Next time do the whole thing yourself and save $. Autozone etc. rents the vacuum pump for free. I have the equipment to do it myself, I have the knowledge and skills to do it myself. I’ve b...

Re: 2006 V70 134A Freon Charge Amount

AC Update Found the Condenser to hold a vacuum but leak under pressure. I ordered a new Nissen Condenser from FCPEuro and had it installed. All of the source material told the shop to put 2.2pounds of 134A in as a charge. They did and the system operated fine with a 40* Delta between ambient air and...

Re: 2006 V70 2.5T Brake Pressure Switch and AC Pressure Switch Faults

Does anyone know what the range in resistance the Brake Position Switch is supposed to read through its length of travel?

I need to troubleshoot the switch and wiring/connectors before I throw parts at it.

Thanks

Re: 2006 V70 2.5T Brake Pressure Switch and AC Pressure Switch Faults

Found that the AC Condenser has a small leak that only shows up when the system is pressurized. It holds a vacuum no problem.

I ordered a Nissen Condenser.

Re: 2006 V70 134A Freon Charge Amount

Here is an update. The system held vacuum fine so the AC Shop filled the system with 1.54 pounds of 134A and the system functioned perfectly except a small leak was detected in the condenser. So they evacuated the system and now a search for the best condenser begins as a replacement that is also ec...

Don't recall what brake fluid I used, but it's common and nothing special. Motive POwer Bleeder is a lifesaver. Trans - I used about 13 quarts ...

So what I want to know are what are the recommendations for:

1) Radiator Fluid
2) Power Steering Fluid
3) Brake Fluid
4) Transmission (Toyota Or Mobil 1 etc?)
5) I’m going with Rotella T6 as that’s what I always use and love it.

Re: Air Conditioning Troubleshooting Help

One thing I need to know is what is the maximum the system is capable of withstanding. I spoke to another respected AC shop and he seemed to think the pressure was ok but I’ll probably stop by his shop to have him throw a set of gauges on it himself.
