Good luck,
By TXV do you mean expansion valve? I thought it got gummed up and should be replaced when the reciever/dryer is replaced. If it doesn't need to be that's just one less thing to buy/worry about. I have the reciept from when the car was converted and I know how much oil the shop put in when they converted it to r134a. If my compressor is bad will the original R4 compressor work with r134a? Synthetic oil, right?
