84 300SD AC question on recharge

I think I had the R12, then someone in the past used the compatible stuff - good for mixing ( wonder if that was true) anyway now I need to add refrigerant? Is there a product that is compatible across the spectrum of what MIGHT be in there?/??

R12

IF,you had R12 and some form of "Compatible" with R12 Wannabe added later.

Go online and get your 609 certification and buy some R12 and put it in.


DISCLAIMER:
You don't Know what's in there...Ain't NOBODY gonna touch it (Nor should they)
with their recycling machine.

I consider the only SMART way to do HVAC is the LEGAL, SAFE way.
I.E. Re-Convert it to R12 (Start from Ground Zero).
Find some way to EMPTY it, Legally...
Flush everything, EXCEPT the Compressor,
(Hand flush by ROTATION of New Lubricant into the Compressor)
Re Ring with Nylog
Replace R/D
Vacuum/Pressure Test
Vacuum
Refill with R12 + Applicable Lubricant

Freeze your Tokas off.

compress ignite offers some wisdom here. I suggest that you pay close attention.

I am not jumping onto you because you bought the car in this condition, but this is a PERFECT example of one of the MANY problems that the junk refrigerants get you into.

If the system was originally designed for R12, use R12. If there is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY to use R12 due to Canadian law or some other crazy local tree huggers, convert to 134. Leave the junk refrigerants and their future problems for someone else.

thanks that is what I figured, no intention of mixing, but sounds like I need to evacuate and start over. No $$ now so will stay hot for awhile longer. Heater works good and fall is only 3 months off
Thanks again
