    A/C Out in 08 Shelby - Anybody use the A/C Pro Kit to Recharge?

    My low pressure service connection is too big for the female end of the recharge kit
    Anybody gotten this to work?
    Is there an adapter required/available?

    Thought those connections were standard?? Are you certain you have found the low side port??

    Thought they were too. I was told the low side was on the passenger side, but maybe that's not correct.
    BTW, that cowl hood looks awesome on your car.

    Are you sure it needs a charge?

    Don't know. The kit comes with a gauge that I hope will tell me something.

    Those charge kits are usually not that accurate I've found. If you really want to tell the pressures, rent real gauges from Autozone. I assume the compressor is kicking in, just the air is not that cool? Found this info on the low pressure location, assuming the GT is the same as yours. http://mustangforums.com/forum/2005-...ustang-gt.html

    Mike Bradburn (redrocker) is the guy that taught me a lot about the AC system when I replaced everything on my Fox. AC work is not that hard if you have the tools like Mike does.

    Ask me about Fox 5 lug info.

    Thanks Thomas.
    When it first started to have a problem the compressor would cycle fast.
    I decided not to even try to run it after that till I had a plan.
    I located the right connection, started the car, and now the compressor wasn't cycling at all.
    Thinking I might have blown a fuse, I checked the several fuses and relays involved with it's operation....all good.
    Put the quick-fill thing on and the pressure wasn't inordinately low. BUT, the compressor wasn't running either.
    I went ahead and charged it up a bit, and low and behold, she started cycling.
    Must have been the low pressure switch in the system that kept it from running.
    Put the rest of a small can in with dye, and waaaah-lah! Cold air!
    Think I found the source of the leak at one of those O-ring connections near the fill point.
    When it leaks out again, I'll tackle that.

    Make sure it's not the Schrader valves in the ports. Those seem to leak a lot on older fords

    Sorry I work at a dealership so to me it's older than the 13 and 14s that I work on.
