Time to repair your car's AC? Get this kit!
Reviewed in the United States on August 29, 2018
I'm an avid DIYer so when my truck's AC compressor failed, I wanted to tackle it myself so I bought this gauge and vacuum pump set. Be sure to fill the pump's oil before using (included, along with instructions).
After replacing all of the mechanical parts (you've got to replace the condensor, receiver/drier, and orifice tube too, after flushing the lines) I hooked everything up, the gauges worked as expected, and it pulled a solid vacuum. The only snag was the freon can tap - it must have had an intenal defect because it wouldn't allow freon to flow from the can. Luckily I had a cheapo tap/gauge combo from the box store and was able add freon and finish the job.
I emailed the company via Amazon explaining what happened and they responded early the second business day, stating that they had already shipped a new tap, and they also refunded my $5 for the wasted can of freon. Things happen and sometimes parts fail, so it's great to see a company stand behind their product and do the right thing.
You can't go wrong with this kit!
