A/C refrigerant gas

Hello world , here I have a concern with my A / C 2000 Ford Taurus . I searched all over the internet and I find nothing anyone knows the burden of refrigerant gas ? Knowing that she must be in double diffusion. If we could give me an answer because my mechanic needs that. Thank you

If you are concerned about the refrigerent being able to "work", I'd suggest have the entire system evacuated, and refilled with new.

After thinking about your question, and being in France, it might be fairly exspensive to replace the refrigerent totally. If the system is charged, remove a pound (ex.), and add a pound of new. I don't know if or how much refrigerent breaks down. Are you having minor or major cooling issues? This might be something else, again, look at the refrigerent charge.

Maybe something is getting lost in the translation?

What he is asking is does the refrigerent gas "breakdown" over time. In other words, think of a 30 wieght oil breaking down over time to 15 wieght (ex.) That is his reference to double diffusion, 50% over time.

I believe your 2000 A/C system takes 34 oz. of R134a, and in a new install, 7 oz. of PAG-46 oil to diffuse throughout the system for lubrication. If only replacing the accumulator/dryer, drill a small hole in the bottom of it, drain the oil and measure how much there is - then add that amount of new, replacement oil to the new accumulator. If not replacing any parts, do NOT add extra oil.

This translates roughly to 960g of R134a and 190g of PAG-46 oil, metric measurements. Pull vacuum for 25-30 minutes to evacuate the system, then put in your refrigerant. If you are merely topping off the system, you'll need to know how much R134 is already in the system so that you do not overcharge it. This is why I prefer to evacuate and refill whenever possible.

P.S. - I'm adding this link for you: http://www.techchoiceparts.com/refrigerant-and-oil-capacities/efgh#ford

We all do it occasionally, no problem. Pardon my rusty French but it may be easier ~

Tous les nous, nous y faisons de temps en temps. Pas de problème.
