Car Air Conditioning Repair : Car Air Conditioner Parts: The Accumulator


Hi, my name is Mark Delgado with American
Auto Service for Expert Village.
You’ll have high pressure in the high side
when you have restrictions also. That may
mean that in the orifice tube, if the compressor
is starting to put debris into the system,
it will clog up that orifice tube or will
clog up the expansion valve causing a restriction
and poor performance as well. There again,
you will look at your pressure readings to
kind of give you a clue as to what is going
on. Some vehicles will have a receiver dryer
but not all vehicles have them. Some vehicles
have what is called an accumulator. An accumulator
is after the evaporator and what it does is
remove moisture and it also will makes sure
that as the refrigerant leaves the evaporator,
it will ensure that it is vapor or a gas when
it returns to the compressor because if it
is liquid refrigerant when it returns to the
compressor, it will damage it.

  1. Compare the limited amount of space that a car has against a refrigerator's. in addition to that, a ref is made/designed for only only thing. Provide cool air to a small area in addition to that, it won't travel 80 miles an hours in mod, dirt, rain, or at 110 degrees temp.
