Thank you! Hoping to save hundreds! ♥️

Joseph Daniel says:

Do you have to probe the hose from the air before charging the car? I heard that air and moisture from the hose can damage the compressor

Michael T says:

Good video, except I think the can has to be held upright, not upside down. Up side down will input a liquid, not the gas>

Life After Trucking says:

Def don’t listen to this guy. U don’t know how much you are adding and can damage the ac system if Putting to much in.

R Pascua says:

You’re teaching viewers the wrong way 12 o’clock means the valve should be at 12’o’clock not inverted. Doing what you did introduced liquid form of the refrigerant and damages the system.

maurine says:

Do you leave car and ac on while you do this? I am not mechanically inclined. Or do you turn car off?

SuperLaura317 says:

When you're done adding refrigerant, do you disconnect, then put the cap on, then turn the car off, or work with someone to turn off the car, then disconnect the hose & add the cap?

Gk says:

Good man well done

Patrick Cooper says:

I can't get the clip on the low port. What do I do ?

jill simmsyingling says:

Very understandable video. Thank you…So regarding pressure….The can I bought was with hose attached for $60 says it simplifies the process… 3 different auto store people told me to stay in the low green…. Green on my can is between 35 and 50 PSI… Is this a good option or would a separate gauge and can be better? Also when shaking the can it seem to be half empty… I really feel liquid moving around in there…Is this normal?

Blondie K says:

I don't understand what you mean by checking outside temperature?
I bought my refrigerant.and want to try it tomorrow and it's going to be hot like 90s . So I test it to see if it's empty first? But how do you know when to stop ? Thank you

Gold Wolf says:

Thanks bro, this was the best AC fill up video on YouTube, I’ve had to scour the internet to find an easy thorough video. Only thing I’d add is eye protection and gloves for the clumsy people.

Johnnie Walker says:

Huge help. Thank you!

Rosalee Morgan says:

Thanks. Simply directions, I like that.

Paul Valdeon says:

What if the gauge is in the red before adding refrigerant? Is there a way to release pressure from the system?

BD says:

How come another video shows the can should be upright, not upside down?

BD says:

Dealer wants to charge me $240 to recharge refrigerant…

Andy Phillips says:

Do you top up when the Engine is running?

S Eds says:

Thanks for sharing this video. I have this problem on my RAV4 2008 just bought it a week ago. I didn't pay attention to the A/C and the seller failed to mention it to me. after watching your video, I now have the idea what to do to get it sorted.

Andy says:
