  1. I will let you know. Thanks for your help,. Kelly, Have they inspect the reservoir? Most of the time your reservoir is dirty and it will no allow fluids circulate through the system. JP Importz

  5. Hi there, I've successful convert many R-12 system to R-134 with no problem. Many folks giving it a bad rep because they wouldn't take the time to do it right or lack of knowledge how the a/c works. This vehicle actually designed for R12 so it will work much better with R-12 but where can we find R-12? The gray market? We have seen 104 degree here in the Dallas, TX area the past week. I've convert a couple of them last week, air blows 28 degree out of the vents in 104 degree temp. Here are some tips: - Flush the system Flush the system, actually..?? Or do you really mean pump it down to a HARD vacuum..?They sell the flushing chemical at any a/c supply outlet. What do you mean why pump it down to a HARD VACCUM? Is this how you flush the system? - Replace all the 0-rings and lube them up with oil Why...?? My seals have worked for 150,000 miles... And with what oil...??Once you open up the lines, It's wise to replace the 0-rings. We had a quite a few 0-rings after the convertion. - Use the right oil for your a/c system Wouldn't the "right" oil for the system mean being compatible with the original R-12..?? Would be surprise what kind of oil people will put in the a/c system. - Replace the drier once the system is open up First pump it down to a HARD vacuum, undoubtedly removing ALL the H2O, and NOW remove the drier..? Why? Since you asked me this question, I don't think you ever work on an a/c system before - Recharge the proper amount of oil Doesn't the commercially packaged for retail R-134 come with the oil mixed in...??Nope - Recharge the proper of R-134(usually 10-15 less than your R-12 system) Or simply recharge to the level that results in the proper low side pressure, ~40 lbs, as directed in the DIY kit..! - Last but not least converting the system isn't cheap. Bring it to someone has the knowledge. Pay for the reapair Once not Twice!!! $50 for the DIY kit including 32 oz of R-134, ~$100 for a reputable A/C specialty shop to do it. Key words = REPUTABLE & A/C SPECIALTY SHOP...! JP Importz

  7. Yes, we vacuumed it for approx 30 min befor charging. We added about 3 ounces of PAG oil. Have you had a chance to put on the new compressor? Keep us updated. JPI
  8. Are you familiar with the Direct Port Injection system? What kind of fuel controller are going to use? This is a very high compression engine. JPI
  9. Have you inspect your shims on the clutch? I would transfer all the old shims to the newer compressor. When you said you properly charge the system, How much did you charge? What was the low and high pressure? What is the temp ? I would need these information. JPI
  10. There are only 2 brake sensors. They are located on the passenger side. JPI
  11. Hi Ted, I would check all the connections one more time. Make sure you don't pinch the wires when putting the cover back on. It wouldn't hurt to inspect coils. JPI

    Have you chech the VSV? JPI
  13. Toyota supra has the 2jz-gte and the GS300 has the 2jz-GE with VTT-i. The VTT-I engine is an interference engine, If you miss 3 teeth and the valves will bend. Non of the toyota engine has the 2jz-GE VTT-I except the lexus family. Well let me take it back the newer Toyota supra has the VVT-i, but that is in Japan. I've seen and heard many toyota techs bend the valves when changing out the belts. If you do go to the independent, make sure they are a lexus specialty shop. Otherwise Lexus dealership will be your best bet. What does it involve in the $700 repair? Do they just change out the timing belt and water pump only? I would suggest that you have the drive belt, timing belt tensioner, cam and crank seal replace at the same time. Regards, JPI
  14. We are a little far..... But kind of power are you looking? Here are a couple s/c we did in the past and present. http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1183908821 http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1183908907 http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1183908937 http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1166761505 http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q159/jp...pg?t=1166761559 JPI
