Default AC Recharged

2001 Cruiser:

Just had AC serviced with new refrigerant. Is it normal to hear a hissing sound from the AC area, I can't pinpoint the exact location, when ignition is turned off? The sound lasts approximately 10 seconds before stopping.

Thanks

Mike

Default Re: AC Recharged

after you shut the car off, the refrigerant on the high side (compressed) bleeds down to the low side until both sides are equal pressure.



ie: it's normal and should be coming from the lower passenger side

Thanks Rob:

The lower passenger side is exactly where the sound is coming from -
