    Ye gods! Someone please tell Uber Eats that the ad with dude eating the scotch tape is freaking DISGUSTING. ARRRRRGGGGHHHH.

    A genuine mouse condo in that fan ☺️ My brand new Toyota pickup in '93 had about 37 miles on it, and one morning in the garage getting ready for work, it would turnover just fine but wouldn't start. Hmmm 🤔 Poppin Z hood and ……🤯 the house cat was there and had eaten my coil wire 💥

    Hi Ray, what refrigerant do you use if you get an old R12 system in, do you have a drop in gas, or covert to R134a, with oil and drier change?

    I have 2018 ram truck with a slow gas filling tank . .

    When you took that fan unit out I thought there would be a family of mice pinned to the blades of the fan like an amusement park ride !😅😂🤣🐭

    Oh what work I could do with an AC machine! Accurate charges!

    Another fine job by Rainman Ray. If I am ever in Florida with my low mileage Chevy Cruze I will come in to your shop for a thorough check over on my 1.4 litre turbo engine. It's 5 years old, well maintained and has about 30k miles on it.

    Have you ever tried using a valve core remover/installer made for ac systems ? It lets you remove the valve without emptying the system

    Have a thumbs up. 👍

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith Falconi says:

    I had a 90 Honda Accord when i lived in Boston that had leaves and other crap in the blower motor. I remember driving while it was snowing and my blower motor went out so I had not defroster. I got mad and I threw one leg over and kicked it a few times to get it working. That worked for a while until I replaced it with a junk yard blower motor. Ah the good ol days of being a broke college kid.

    I watch these auto repair videos and say to myself “I wish I lived near by this guy”. Turns out I live in Cape Coral…I guess I do live near by. When I need service work done I guess I know where I can take my vehicle. 👍

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars keep thinking says:

    In the air conditioner field is called a decay test And it's not 29.9 PSI cause you've got to remember it's in microns and you need to be at least below 500 microns Does your digital meter that's built into that thing read microns I always wondered about that

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Outdoor freedom says:

    First, I live in the country and we do have rodents!! I had an 86 Dodge K car that the mice thought the fan was a motel! I had to stand on my head to get that thing taken apart and originally it took about an hour. It happened so often I got it down to about 10 minutes! I wish it was as easy as this truck!!
    I love the Air Con videos! Next summer I will take my 99 olds van in for air service to my local guy. The dealer down in the valley really sucks!!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Krause says:

    I think 78% Nitrogen, 21% Oxygen, & the remainder 1% inert gases equals Air. Where can we get a air duct Thermometer like yours. can you list it?

    I remember the big chryslers in early eighties running the R12 refrigerant ,was a couple of pounds. Used to see ice 🧊 crystals come out of the vents.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TEAC Fan says:

    I had a mouse trying to make his home in my glove box. I opened the glove box door and scared him and he took off, scared me too! Had a huge ball of fuzz in there. Took off the door and cleaned it out. Put tin foil behind the glove box and in the glove box itself. I heard mice hate the stuff.

    Brings to mind my 2003 Caravan. Had it in for new tires. I do most of my own work but I don't do tires. anyway when I picked up the van at the end of day, service personal said I needed a new fan in the back unit, it was vibrating, Which I knew it was but their estimate of repairs was about 350 parts and labor, and if a person didn;t know what they was doing they could really screw the A/C system up. They never even considered that I was a mechanic for 35 years. Told em I would take care of it. It had happened before, the so called sound material Chrysler uses disintergrates with time and winds up in the squirrel cage, I know this as I had cleaned it before. Just sort of chuckled as I went out the door and said boy I hope I don't screw this up. Enjoy you clips. Didn't get to much into scanning a lot of that technology was coming in as I was going out of the automotive field, Drove truck for 20 years then retired 4 years ago

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Hanes says:

    I'm a retired A/C tech. That Robinaire machine sure is slick. You don't want to know how we used to do it. Horse and buggy days. No cabin filter in the older Toyotas. I have an 03 and a rat crawled into the blower and died when I spun him around running the fan. Way out of balance. Gotta get them out before they stink when that happens.

    I swear that charge sticker said 1.34 lbs

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Ballou says:

    the weather you describe there is not for me. I live in Oregon, somewhat different climate.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adrian Moreno says:

    Ive got basically the same truck, how much would it cost to get my pressures checked and topped off if I need it?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Windrim says:

    Those A/C valves look very similar to the valve inside a bicycle tube if you were to remove the valve from the stem.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tundramanq says:

    Leaves and debris that get pass the inlet screen tend to pile up on top of the horizontal filter right above the blower. When just pulling the dirty filter out of it's slot, this stuff gets scraped off and dumped right into the blowers squirrel cage. After having to vacuum out the cage in place once, I made a thin cardboard insert to slide blocking the blower inlet under the filter when changing the filter out just to catch any piles of crud or leaves that gets scraped off. What gets pass the blower will end up in the coils that aren't easily accessible. I hope you checked the filter as well. Out camping, I have had rodents nibble holes in both cabin and engine filters as well as windshield washer fluid getting sucked in and damaging the filter.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CrayFishTv says:

    noticed the FLICKING of the switches… vehicle that old you don't want to FLICK the switches (like a 12y/o) something will break… too heavy handed for my liking.. !

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas Manning says:

    Hey rainman I was wondering what is the difference on the valves you replaced where you connected the hoses? Never done any ac work to my truck.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ross G says:

    Not gonna read through all the comments, but a/c tech here 👋🏻. It came in low and all you did was charge it and dye it. You didn't fix the leak though. Now they get to come in again and get it fixed again. Just saying. Oil is the smoke, electronic leak detector will help you find if it is a oily mess. Also use some of your minty nitrogen tire filler that makes unicorns cum and pressurize the system to go to soap bubble town. Find the leak!!!!!!. Probably an o-ring or hose, but you know all things exist in reality. Anyway like your vids, just ragging. Keep on fixin.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Little Stinker says:

    "I'm going to solve this immediate problem with a high-pressure mixture of nitrogen, oxygen, CO2, and an assortment of other gases". You're blowing more hot air, Ray. LOL. Keep up the great work.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ivan Olsen says:

    did you check the cabin air filter ( if it has one ) … if so …. why not ….

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Ziegler says:

    Tappy tappy Great day

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Billie Bobbie Norton says:

    Because you put in 1.34 not 1.43lbs the A/C will blow up the western world….

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Smart Home says:

    One thing to note: when cleaning out the cages, make sure you don't accidentally remove any weight clips that might have been installed when they balanced this wheel. These tiny weights are just like the weights used to balance wheels, only tiny and usually made of aluminum. Compressed air has a tendency to make these go bye bye. If you do see a weight, mark the location with a sharpie before cleaning so you know where it goes if it flies/falls off when cleaning.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Maze says:

    My brother had a 2008 trail blazer he kept having dog food come up missing from his car port the fan in the TB started vibrating so bad it would shake the dash took blower out it had 5 lbs of dig food in it lol

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ed Syphan says:

    Just curious? Did you have more mouse debris inside the rest of the housing?

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mike kuo says:

    Like you video quick question where you location if I bring my car for you to checkout thx lot

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars akbychoice says:

    I added FrogzSkin material under my cowling intake area on my 2016 F450 to keep debris out. 2017 they put a cabin filter in place. Ford dropped the ball, my 2002 gmc 2500 has a cabin filter.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Windham says:

    Keep’ em cool Ray.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Chan says:

    We recently found a dead rat inside the blower motor fan of a '21 Explorer we had at our dealership. Needless to say, this repair was NOT covered under warranty.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola Que Tal? says:

    Cabin air filter? No need to inspect or replace?

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars EddieH Lifts says:

    That big machine doesn’t read Microns? If you have a leak it will never pull under 1000, that’s how we fully determine in HVAC

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Cranium says:

    I'm surprised when changing valves you dont pump nitrogen in through the other side (with expansion valves open) to keep dirt from entering the system, or moisture. You'd still need to pull it into a vacuum when done, but you wouldnt have to wait for any moisture to evaporate and come out (assuming the system was dry to start)

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Selsvik says:

    Thats why they call it a squrel cage

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Red Scorpion 6 says:

    Cool, you can remove the blower fan with the dash still in the car.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ginger elvira says:

    Technical Term # 1 Motor has to work (Way More Harder)

  50. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars r smith says:

    When I decline the nitrogen cost at the tire shop I tell them I have custom blend of air at home that I fill the tires with which includes some helium, neon, and hydrogen. The mouth breathers at the tire shop never get it, they're always pushing the nitrogen!
