AC dead any ideas at all welcome.

The outside unit does nothing. I put a new dual cap in even though the old one looked like new. Full power to the contactor. I push the contactor in - nothing. Neither the fan or the compressor...

Don't be scared of too much info.

I have seen some talk here about the posting of too much AC info. I think this is nonsense. Most if not all laws have exemptions for the home owner. For instance you can replace your own toilet or...

Re-learn

It will take several days and 50 miles or so at least for the trans computer to re-learn. The dealer or a trans shop can do a quick learn for you.

Opinions please. Best vinyl brand

I put Armstrong sheet vinyl in my bathroom two years ago. After six months you could already see stains from what I think was just water.
The backing of the vinyl was like a grey paper.

How bad is the leak??? The reason I ask is that I have a 95 Voyager (great vehicle!) That I have to top up once a year or 2.

I use it

I topped up my home unit with a can. Works perfectly. Cheaper than R22.Loads the system less. But no money for the big chemical co.

Common problem

The copper contacts inside the solenoid wear out quickly. There is a repair kit you can get for about $7.Used one myself on my Voyager last year perfect ever since.Check out www.allpar.com

So I should have it looked at?

So my 'drop' is only 14 degrees. So I should call a reptuable tech out to see why the 'drop' is not another 4 degrees or so??

Low on refrigerant

Just from reading other posts it sounds like you might be low on refrigerant. Tech can fix the leak and recharge the system.

Toxic 134A

Well for years they sold R12 and R22 and thought that was safe. Google '134A testicular cancer' and see what you get.The chlorine in CFCs and pools are molecularly different. high school chemistry.
