Re: 88 Cherokee a/c line thing

R152a is awesome. So far so good on my conversion on another vehicle.

I'm not sure what the bump is, but IIRC R134a introduction was 94 or 95.

Also, did you flush the old mineral oil out and add ester oil while doing your R152a conversion? You need to - mineral oil won't flow with R152a, gotta use ester oil, and it might be why your compressor is making noise now. If you open the system to replace the compressor and see "black death" black gunk or silvery metal debris, it's time to flush everything extremely carefully and replace anything you can't flush.

Please do not PM me about the AW4 info thread unless you have a truly unique question that is not covered by it or info to add. I do not respond to questions answered by the thread.
Definitely do not hunt down my phone number at 3AM, text me about it, and then threaten violence when I am not helpful. It will not get you what you want.
