    Just a tip. If everything seems to work on your AC, but you're not satisfied with the cooling, apart from the aux fans, try to blow compressed air to the condenser. This will somehow unclog the dirt accumulated through the years. It is often neglected kaya its a good thing to do at least every oil change.

    most vehicles pag more than 10 years na hindi na basta basta nakukuha sa linis at flushing ang condenser.... then dapat din ni katiting na moisture walang matitira sa loob, ang dapat gawin eh i-oven yung condenser mo... then pressure test....

    eds ac shop lang ang shop na alam ko na kayang malinis.... or palitan nyo nalang ng bago...

    So i decided na to change the condenser, compressor, expansion valves, and drier and everything was so cold na kahit number 2 lang yung blower speed sa tanghaling tapat..
    Also i've read somewhere over the net na may adjustments sa expansion valve.. Anyone expert on these? I got only little info on this..
    yung eds ac shop... may 5yrs. na exp. valve ko hindi pa din nila pinapapalitan.... adjust lang nila... may bilang po silang ginagawa... dati may computation pa akong nakita... pinalitan nila kasi ng ibang exp. valve....

    gigive up na ata yung aircon system ko after 2 decades, hindi na naga-automatic yung compressor. are China replacement compressors good? Anong recommended nyo na compressor? >10k budget sana for compressor, cleaning, and recharging... preferably bnew compressor sana. Am near Evangelista so kung may shops kayo na recommended doon, please advise. btw Terrano JDM pala

    Meron bang connect ang radiator sa lamig ng aircon ng kotse? Ang pagkakaalam ko wala.. Pero just to be sure nagtanung na ako dito..

    Bakit ko natanung?

    Kasi simula nung na overheat ang kotse ko at dahilan nun ay kawalan ng tubig at coolant ng radiator ko.. Pag tapos na matumal na ang lamig ng aircon. hindi na ganun ka lamig kahit napaayos ko na ang radiator.

    Sabi ng shop maaring sa radiator daw ang sira magpalit na daw ako kahit daw evercool radiator maganda na daw un.

    Kaya eto nag tanung ako radiator ba tlga ang dapat palitan or niloloko lang ako nito ni kuya manong?

    Thanks guys!

    I'm impressed with "manong" marketing for that brand.

    The principle of A/C cooling when it comes to the 2nd stage (condensation) is that you require surface area, pressure and airflow.

    If say a conventional radiator attempts to provide more cooling capacity, what common designers do is simply add on another row. On the radiator end, you do add capacity but at the expense of overall system airflow (airside pressure drop) and space.

    Your condenser, fundamentally isn't getting as much airflow as it should, lowering your A/C system capacity, hence your engine works harder to maintain interior cabin temps, your car consumes more fuel, and net loss overall in terms of performance.

    So as far as the airside of the equation is concerned, you wouldn't necessarily want to upgrade your radiator willy nilly. Checking your fans and making sure your condenser and radiator cores are clean could make a simple and economical difference in your vehicle's performance.

    Update lang,

    More than six months ago, i decided to replace the defective compressor with a surplus unit. Totaled 7k plus since i decided to replace expansion valve and drier na rin,they gave three months warranty for the comp. after four months, nawalan ng lamig and turned out to be the Pito, may singaw. So refill lang muna, 600. Then after two months, an o-ring leaked, so mga 2k din ang cost kasi pinasabay ang cleaning. 10k plus na rin ang nagagastos, pero ngayon pag traffic sobrang init.

    Since magsa-summer na, and diagnosis reveals that the compressor is going south, i decided to replace it na lang, eto nagastos ko:
    Sanden SD5S14 (508) Genuine Singapore - 6.4k
    Receiver/drier - 100
    Manual thermostat - 350
    Compressor oil -150

    Bought it from 1Rotary at Evangelista. Orig price nung comp is 7k. Bought the parts to our trusted mech and pina full flushing ko lahat ng parts, and sya na rin nagpakabit ng bracket. Feels like a brand new car na, sakto kasi lapit na mag summer. Baka lalo pang lumamig when i will change my tints

    Yung lumang shop ko na pinagawan is RGL Evangelista sa tapat ng INC church, wag kayo dun (sila din source nung surplus comp). Quote nila dati for exp valve and drier is almost 2k pero yung drier eh 100 lang amp parehas lang din naman.

    Meron din kups na shop sa Banawe, forgot lang kung anong pangalan. Sila dapat kasi papagawan ko kasi sagot ng fleet card. Sabi ba naman di nila kayang awin kasi Subic daw, at kahit palitan lahat ng parts eh hindi daw siguradong lalamig. Tanong ko kung anong solusyon, palit daw sasakyan, bastards

    Regarding pala dun sa compressor, it is indeed genuine, pwede ma check sa Sanden website. Medyo weird lang ang warranty dun, sabi nila yung China version (4k) may three months warranty, while yung Singapore eh no warranty pero pwede ibalik sa kanila

    Kainis talaga yung banawe shop na yun amp
