I think its a code f47 for low refrigerant. I have done excruciating research re: this and the winner for me as soon as I can afford is called Freeze 12. You can get it on Ebay or direct from the distributor. Haven't seen it in the Napa or Checkers auto parts tho'.I haven't pulled any codes yet, doing that tomorrow.
And does anyone know if the R12 refrigerants being sold on eBay are legitimate? and Yes I'm aware of the legalities behind R12 refrigerant
Probably is, but they are going to ask for your certification number before they sell you any. Without one, I doubt anyone would sell it to you.And does anyone know if the R12 refrigerants being sold on eBay are legitimate?
It's not the refrigerant, it's the oil that is not compatible and must be flushed and changed.My understanding about 134a is that it is not compatible with the Cadillac compressor and will cause it to fail sooner than expected so you'd have to get a whole new compressor
Well, that was what I thought too, cause I noticed on all of the auctions, they said you have to provide your certification number before payment, but they all also said this right after. "If you don't have a certification number, send us a signed document or an e-mail stating you agree to sell this refrigerant to a certified technician and it is not for personal use."Probably is, but they are going to ask for your certification number before they sell you any.
