Re: Expansion Valve Replacment

BTW, how can pressures develop without the compressor engaging? With ac off, high side pressures bleed off until both sides equalize. If you are seeing 175 psi and 30 psi, the compressor is engaged,...

Post Re: Expansion Valve Replacment

I don't think this problem is related to your thermal expansion.

Post Re: A/C Compressor Replacement Recommendations?

Post Re: Running A/C without A/C diode in fuse block.

Go to a junk yard and you'll find them in fuse boxes. Pick a GM model, any model and pull the diode out for your car. If you find a Saturn, pull the diode out as the closest match.
