A few psi of backpressure out of the exhaust was enough. And in hindsight, I could have used our makeshift cylinder leakdown tester, cranked it to a suitably low psi maybe ten? This is also a good lesson to remember with the Caravan and its non-functional air conditioning Especially since it was so hot last week that it rained when the sun was out no, seriously, that happened. Evaporator evaporates, condenser condenses, compressor compresses, etc. He got a junkyard compressor, and he installed said junkyard compressor.
Episode screencap. We sent him on his way with more explicit instructions about what part he actually needed, and he dutifully went back to the junkyard in search of a condenser. And he found one, too, but since we were too busy to get him in right away, he took it to a competitor.
Also I need to make a correction on the previous blog post; book prices are not yet set in stone. I'm glad I have a boring job, where the worst thing I have to deal with is people calling the law office deciding to talk to me as if I'm the lawyer. You'd think a guy who used to live within minutes of Ford HQ would understand more of the terminology.
Not that this isn't entertaining to read, nothing like that. It's just that auto talk tends to escape me a lot. I've had something similar happen to me at work. Long story short, when it's degrees outside, people don't care what they have to do to fix their AC. Some results are funny, others decidedly less so.
Note for future HVAC workers. Never dump a refrigerant charge directly on your hand. Unless, of course, you want to explain to the doctor how the hell you got frostbite in the middle of summer.
Yeah for suspected egr leakage, I usually take off the valve, inspect, and have someone start it while I have my finger in the hole. Also I sometimes use a cut up Tapping The Admiral - Natty - These Days I Expect The Worst can for a 'gasket' without holes. So like, if there's carbon buildup under the plunger, the computer will just think that the closed position moved a little bit, and not think anything of it.
Then you've got my LeBaron, whose fucking EGR wasn't working AT ALL, broken in about every way it could be broken, including electrically, and the computer didn't deem it necessary to turn on the engine light, even though it had codes. And then, I have actually seen electronic throttle bodies freak out and do stupid things at the barest minimum of dirt buildup I've seen it ran on a sunny day many times.
Always thought it was the compressor but nope. They recharged the system and found a leak. My car used to have air con. Then the mechanic used the wrong refrigerant, despite the usual warning and compliance labels on the system. After taking the car elsewhere and getting three Nitorgen purges there is still gunk in the pipes which is When I Fall In Love - Celine Dion* - The Colour Of My Love Concert (DVD) result of the weird stuff he used.
I love these blogs even though I know absolutely nothing about cars. Props to you and everyone who does though. I keep wondering about a low pressure phase change water loop, depending what gear can handle 1psi absolute reliably etc? Use of these has increased as they have low environmental impact if they leak and are very efficient refrigerants. Have found older systems have equivalent to original performance while most Ra systems actually perform better than with the original refrigerant.
Apparently it will still work OK but the type of oil in the system can cause some issues and the impurities in the Tapping The Admiral - Natty - These Days I Expect The Worst grade LPG can lead to failures and blockages in the system. Nope, not surprised in the Tapping The Admiral - Natty - These Days I Expect The Worst.
Would have been more surprised if he had replaced the right part. I am guessing he's been billed for time spent so far and so that is fine May the competitor enjoy his antics from here on. That is what happened to me. No, I wasn't the one who did it - it was a mechanic who did it before I bought the car. The experience is just as you described. It worked sort of for the previous owner but stopped exchanging heat very soon after the job. After I bought the car and the pipes were evacuated, green smooze came out.
The air con is stuffed. No amount of purging can clean the pipes - it needs rebuilding. The high cost and general long delays in getting a refrigeration tech out our way is why I'd learnt about this so I could handle our systems.
Since then I've helped a lot of neighbours and friends with their systems. Speaking Tapping The Admiral - Natty - These Days I Expect The Worst AC, I'mma' need to have the dealer look at my brand new to me car. The AC functions fine. But some of the time only for a while. I can often drive the full hour commute and it cheerfully cools me.
Sometimes after running for a while more than 10 minutes, less than 60 it Crank it up all the way setting 4and it blows close to the same power as it did previously on setting 1. There's a ton of air blowing noise in the dash when it does this, but it volume of air coming out doesn't seem to match.
Temperature of the blown air doesn't seem to change. I just realized, you've written lots of stories about smart, dedicated ponies hauling, repairing, and working carts, plenty of characters that could possible act as a stand-in for you.
But they've never had a slightly goofy, overbearing boss. Is that because you don't want your characters Helping You Out - Colours (14) - Colours have to put up with what you put up with? Ah, yes! The EGR valve. There have been increasing numbers of generals' "revolts" of various sorts in our recent past. Of course, George W. Bush was insistent on turning planning over to his generals though only when he liked themsomething Barack Obama criticized him Tapping The Admiral - Natty - These Days I Expect The Worst during the election campaign.
If a genuine clash heats up, expect more discussion of "MacArthur Mother And Child Reunion - Various - Trojan Carnival Box Set but this will not be Truman versus MacArthur reduxand not just because Petraeus seems to be a subtler political player than MacArthur ever was.
Over the nearly six decades that separate us from Truman's great moment, the Pentagon has become a far more overwhelming institution. In Afghanistan, as in Washington, it has swallowed up much of what once was intelligence, as it is swallowing up much of what once was diplomacy. It is linked to one of the two businesses, the Pentagon-subsidized weapons industry, which has proven an American success story even in the worst of economic times the other remains Hollywood. It now holds a far different position in a society that seems to feed on war.
It's one thing for the leaders of a country to say that war should be left to the generals when suddenly embroiled in conflict, quite another when that country is eternally in a state of war. In such a case, if you turn crucial war decisions over to the military, you functionally turn foreign policy over to them as well.
All of this is made more complicated, because Tapping The Admiral - Natty - These Days I Expect The Worst cast of "civilians" theoretically pitted against the military right now includes Karl W. Eikenberry, a retired lieutenant general who My Dad - Potluck - Pipe Dreams the U.
The question is: will an already heavily militarized foreign policy geared to endless global war be surrendered to the generals? Tapping The Admiral - Natty - These Days I Expect The Worst on what Obama does, the answer to that question may not be fully, or even largely, clarified this time around.
He may quietly give way, or they may, or compromises may be reached behind the scenes. After all, careers and political futures are at stake. But consider us warned. This is a question that is not likely to go away and that may determine what this country becomes. We know what a MacArthur moment was; we may find out soon enough what a Petraeus moment is.
