    A/C Suddenly Not Working

    So after I replaced my transmission my A/C no longer worked and before I started the transmission it was blowing very cold. The amount of time it was down was about 10 days including the time it took to locate a replacement trans. So far I have: 1. Confirmed clutch is engaging. 2. Removed/flushed evaporator and cleaned/inspected TXV. 3. Evacuated, vacuum, and recharge. 4. Spun compressor clutch by hand, it has consistently smooth resistance. 5. 100% confirmed correct amount of refrigerant. When I hook the gauges up I have the following pressures AC off: H-110psi L-110psi AC on: H-110psi L-90psi Now when I bring the RPM up to 2500 the low side comes down to 80psi but the high side doesn’t move at all, not even a little bit. Does anyone know about this stuff? I’m kinda stuck on it being an internal failure in the compressor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Vacuum Line To Nothing?

    Mine smelled like gas and alcohol very strong. It was also dripping out of the vent near the canister. When I took it out to install the one I got from the junk yard, gas poured out of it.. I also replaced the purge valve and vent valve so it’s entirely possible that one of those was the 1447 culprit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Transmission Problema

    I drove just under 100 miles today and a quarter of it was in stop and go traffic in a construction zone on the interstate and I am so pleased to say that she is running great! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Transmission Problema

    Guys, this transmission is solid! I put about 5 miles on it so far and it shifts almost perfectly! I snapped some photos of the oil that came out of it: My AC has stopped working now... I’m not sure what exactly the problem is yet but it wasn’t working at all. I’ll cycle the compressor during high RPM tomorrow to see if something breaks loose. Wooooh! I got my car back :] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Transmission Problema

    It’s coming along fellas. Little more involved than I remembered but all in all it’s been smooth. The transmission/transfercase assembly is huge... the transfer case weighs almost as much as the transmission! The oil is slightly brown on this transmission but it doesn’t smell bad at all. I am mating the transfercase to the new transmission right now. I’m not sure if I’ll finish it today or not. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Transmission Problema

    The weekend is finally here and soon I will be test driving my new(to me) transmission! I hope to have everything put together before sundown tomorrow. Tonight I got everything disconnected from the transmission except the dipstick tube, TC bolts, and bellhousing bolts. Exhaust is out as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    SFD Schematics

    Someone once told me to tack the spacer together and see if you have it aligned correctly, and if not then take it back apart and tack it again until you have it just right.

    Transmission Problema

    I smelled the wire loom, which was wet, and it was purple powered then pressure washed. I wish they wouldn’t have done that. Hopefully whoever did it was careful where they pointed the pressure washer. And so it begins... again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Transmission Problema

    This thing is quite clean! I hope it was a nice gentle clean 159k highway miles. We shall see :] Just look at those plugs... you can’t even tell mine are plugs, they just look like balls of dirt at the end of a stick from a tree. There’s even plants growing under there and everything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Transmission Problema

    Haha, yes, well I would say that, unfortunately, it wasn't a case of luck but of my own inexperience and impatience. I made some foolish mistakes that will stay with me. You know.. I got mad at God for letting me make these mistakes, because I have seen Him cover my butt on some WAY bigger mistakes and you know what He said to me? He said "if I don't allow your mistakes then you will stay a child forever" to which I replied "yeah but I'll be Your child..." As my life progresses, my relationship with Him changes greatly.. nothing about Him follows what I want or think He should be like. He really is there, and He really is a person, I am so sure of it.. Anyways I will keep yall posted on this stuff. I hope to swing by Lance tomorrow after work for the 158k miles RE4. I hope it is as flawless as my previous JY trans from Givens!

    Transmission Problema

    Well the trans that Givens said they had disappeared and every other place that was open today didn’t have any RE4s. Givens referred me to a shop that was supposed to have a 59k miles RE4 for $650 but they said it was already gone. I still have Lance and CTV but they’re only open thru the week so I’ll have to wait till Monday! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Transmission Problema

    The solenoids looked great and operated with 12v. I stuck a small screw driver inside the ones that didn’t have a spring to return the piston. Everything I put my eyes on looked good except there was that trash inside the valve body. I couldn’t remove the gasket for the one side of the valve body so I don’t know how it looked under there. The accumulator orings were all good. Everything looked good... At this point, I’ve damaged that transmission badly somewhere, and I’m worried about fixing what is damaged only to have another part fail soon down the road. I’ve located 3 RE4R01A’s locally: Givens Junkyard 159k miles $500+$25 Lance Used Parts 158k miles $500+$25 CTV Used Parts 149k miles $650+$75 The last one I put in came from Givens and it had 121k miles for I think $700. Or maybe it was $600, I can’t remember. That transmission was literally perfect so I am thinking about going to Givens again. Buuuuut, the engine I got from them had detonation when I first started it and it blew a head gasket right then.. also the heads were badly worn... but that may have been from me recessing the cam seals.... Anyway, I can’t wait to get this thing back up and running. I got an electric fan from a Volvo 940 waiting to go in and fall is almost here so the trails are already calling me...
