Offroading is not a sign; it's not tangible.

Nasty fluid in the diff, water in the diff, etc are tangible, and would be signs of abuse.

My service adviser said they looked at my undercarriage for scratches and such. They also looked in my tow slot to see if there were scratches from putting in and out the hitch.


BTW- In the mitts of this my service adviser was fired on Saturday.


BTW2- My A/C stopped working on my wife's RDX. I have high psi on the low side (150psi) but getting hot air. I don't hear the composer clicking over but I also can't see because in typical Honda fashion it is somewhere next to the crank shaft.

That's a lot of failure for 62K miles.

Amusing and not surprising.

150psi is way too high. The compressor will only operate within a given range, and 150 is way above that range (probably should be around 50psi). That's why it's not clicking on. You need to take it to a shop to have it evacuated. Did you just keep filling it???

Actually 57k my RDX is 62k. To be honest at this point they are being lazy just throwing parts at it until it stops making the noise but hey if Toyota is stroking the check what does it matter.

Isn't the wheel bearing and the axle bearing the same thing?

No I never filled it I just put the gauge on it. I am wondering how it got that high?

no wheel bearing is in/near your tire, the axle bearing is in the center of the axle near the differential.

I was thinking it won't run if the psi is to low. 150psi is I believe a good number on the high side so I am thinking the composer died on me, thus creating the same pressure on both sides.

It shouldn't run if it's too high, either.

Ok, so what is your guess?

I say bad a/c composer.

Re: F...Toyota

There are usually two ports to check on the AC, a high-pressure side and a low-pressure side.

But 150psi is way too high for either. The high pressure side usually reads about 70-80psi and the low side around 35-40psi. The low side of the one you want to check. You're actually not supposed to open the high pressure side.




When it reads way high, it usually means there is a leak in the line. I went through this with my wife's car last year.

But first, did you read the pressure with the car running and AC on its highest setting? That's the only way to get an accurate reading. If it's reading high, it does not mean there is that much refrigerant in it, that's just an indication of a problem, not the actual pressure.

Test the low pressure side with it running and blowing on high. If it's reading low, add some r134a until the compressor kicks on, should happen just over 30psi.

I am fairly good at car AC repair. Fixed my own before and diagnosed my wife's (was a leaky line and evaporator coil inside the dash...let the pros do that work).

It could be a bunch of different things. Take it to your mechanic and let him diagnose it.

Well I read the 150 off a cheap walmart gauge so basically it just means it is high.

If you get a high reading on both sides it is overcharged but how can it be all of sudden overcharge, I have never added anything to it?

Who knows it goes in Wednesday hopefully if my 4Runner is fixed.
