Nissan 240sx Air Conditioning

To see the original article with images check it out here: Garage411: Nissan 240sx Air Conditioning: compressor oil, lines, fittings and more

REFRIGERANT OIL

FYI: DO NOT exceed AC system refrigerant oil capacity when servicing system.

Only NEW, moisture-free refrigerant oil should be used in the air conditioning system. This oil is highly refined and dehydrated so moisture content is less than 10 parts per million. The oil container must be tightly closed at all times when not in use, or moisture from the air will be absorbed into the refrigerant oil.

SERVICING PRECAUTIONS

DISCHARGING SYSTEM

Discharge AC system using approved refrigerant recovery/recycling equipment. Always follow recovery/recycling equipment manufacturer's instructions. After refrigerant recovery process is completed, the amount of compressor oil removed must be measured and the same amount added to AC system.

DISCONNECTING LINES AND FITTINGS

After system is discharged, carefully clean area around all fittings to be opened. Always use 2 wrenches when tightening or loosening fittings. Some refrigerant lines are connected with a coupling. Special tools may be required to disconnect lines. Cap or plug all openings as soon as lines are removed. DO NOT remove caps until connections of lines and fittings are completed.

CONNECTING LINES AND FITTINGS


FYI: All R-134a based systems use 1/2"-16 ACME threaded fittings. Ensure all replacement parts match the connections of the system being worked on.

Always use a new gasket or "O" ring when connecting lines or fittings. Coat "O" ring with refrigerant oil and ensure it is not twisted during installation. Always use 2 wrenches to prevent damage to lines and fittings.

PLACING SYSTEM IN OPERATION

After component service or replacement has been completed and all connections have been made, evacuate system thoroughly with a vacuum pump. Charge system with proper amount of refrigerant and perform leak test. Check all fittings that have been opened. After system has been leak tested, check system performance.

FYI: Most compressors are pre-charged with a fixed amount of refrigerant (shipping) oil. Drain compressor oil from new compressor and add refrigerant oil to new compressor according to amount removed from old compressor. Always refer to underhood AC specification label or AC compressor label while servicing AC system.

CHECKING COMPRESSOR OIL


1. Before checking and adjusting oil level, operate engine at 1200 RPM. Connect manifold gauge set to AC system. Ensure high side pressure is more than 85 psi (6.0 kg/cm2 ). If necessary, cover front face of condenser to raise pressure.
2. Set controls at maximum cooling and high blower motor speed. Operate AC system for 10 minutes to return oil to compressor. Stop engine. Discharge refrigerant. Measure the amount of oil drained/discharged into refrigerant recovery/recycling equipment.
3. Remove compressor from vehicle. Remove compressor drain plug. Drain compressor oil from old compressor and measure oil amount. Add this amount to amount drained in step 2) to obtain total amount drained.
4. Drain oil from new compressor. Fill new compressor with total amount drained from old compressor, using new oil. If any major components of the system were also replaced, determine the amount of additional oil needed.

COMPONENT REFRIGERANT OIL CAPACITIES

  • Condenser: 2.5
  • Evaporator: 2.5
  • Receiver-Drier: 0.2
  • Refrigerant Lines (Add only if a refrigerant oil leak is indicated.): 1.0

MANUAL AC SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS

  • Compressor Type: Calsonic V6 6-Cyl.
  • Compressor Belt Deflection
    • New Belt: 15/64-9/32" (6-7 mm)
    • Used Belt: 9/32-5/16" (7-8 mm)
  • System Oil Capacity: 6.8 ozs. (Measured at ambient temperature of 77F (25C), with 50-70 percent relative humidity.)
  • Refrigerant (R-134a) Capacity 29.9-33.4 ozs.
  • System Operating Pressures (Use Type "S" Oil (Part No. KLH00-PAGS0).
    • High Side: 165-202 psi (11.6-14.2 kg/cm2 )
    • Low Side: 19-29 psi (1.3-2.0 kg/cm2 )

    • Sequence: LR, RR, LF, RF

ADJUSTMENTS

POWER BRAKE UNIT OUTPUT ROD
1. Attach a hand-held vacuum pump to power brake unit supply port.
Apply 20 in. Hg vacuum to power brake unit. Measure length of output rod extending from power brake unit housing.
2. Adjust output rod length if necessary. If output rod length cannot be adjusted properly, replace power brake unit.

BRAKE PEDAL HEIGHT AND FREE PLAY
1. Measure pedal height from pressure face of pedal pad to floor pan insulator, without carpet.
  • AT: 7.3-7.7 Inches (186-196 mm)
  • MT: 7.0-7.4 Inches (177-187 mm)
2. To adjust pedal height, loosen brake booster input rod lock nut, and rotate input rod to attain proper height. Tighten lock nut, and adjust stoplight switch. Ensure pedal free play is .04-.12" (1.0-3.0 mm).

PARKING BRAKE
1. Remove parking brake lever cover. Raise and support rear of vehicle. Pull up on parking brake lever using force of 44 lbs. (20 kg). Rear wheels should lock at appropriate lever stroke.
  • 240SX: 6-8 notches
2. Adjust parking brake using adjusting nut located beside or below parking brake lever. After releasing lever, ensure rear wheels rotate freely and slack is not present at rear cables.

STOPLIGHT SWITCH AND AUTOMATIC SPEED CONTROL DEVICE SWITCH
1. Both switches are located below dash panel, at brake pedal bracket. Adjust brake pedal height.
  • AT: 7.3-7.7 Inches (186-196 mm)
  • MT: 7.0-7.4 Inches (177-187 mm)
2. Check clearance and position of switches. Clearance between brake pedal stopper rubber and threaded end of switch should be.01-.04" (0.3-1.0 mm). To adjust, loosen lock nut and turn switch body. After adjustment, tighten lock nut.

POWER BRAKE UNIT TESTING

Determine whether source of problem is in power brake unit or check valve. Always inspect check valve. DO NOT disassemble power brake unit. After air-tight and operational tests, replace complete assembly if problem is determined to be in power brake unit.

Air-Tight Check
1. Start engine, and operate it for 2 minutes. Turn engine off. Depress brake pedal several times. If brake pedal height rises gradually on successive pedal depressions, go to next step. If pedal does not rise on successive pumps, check for air leak.
2. Start engine. Depress brake pedal and turn engine off. Hold brake pedal down for 30 seconds. If brake pedal height does not change, power brake unit is air tight. If pedal height changes, check for air leak.

Operational Check
With engine off, depress brake pedal several times until pedal height no longer changes. Press and hold brake pedal down. Start engine. If pedal goes down slightly, power brake unit is okay. If pedal does not move, check for air leak.

Nissan S13 240SX Differential Overhaul: cleaning, inspection, adjustments and more

To see the original article with images check it out here: Garage411: Nissan 240SX Differential Overhaul S13: cleaning, inspection, adjustments and more

Disassembly

1. With differential assembly removed from vehicle, remove rear mounting member and cover plate. See Figure 1 or Figure 2. Using an INCH-lb. torque wrench, check total differential preload. Total preload should be 12-15 INCH lbs. (1.4-1.7 N.m).
2. Mount dial indicator on gear carrier gasket surface. Record ring gear to pinion backlash readings at several points around ring gear for use during reassembly. Backlash specification is:
  • .0039-.0059"(.100-.150 mm).
3. Place dial indicator so that it contacts ring gear surface behind tooth face. Check ring gear runout. Runout limit is:
  • .002" (.05 mm)
Check ring and pinion gear tooth contact pattern.
4. On R200, check clearance between side gear thrust washer and differential case. Clearance should be:
  • .004-.008" (.10-.20 mm).
5. On all models, mark carrier, caps and bearing outer races for reinstallation in original position. Remove side bearing caps. Extract differential case from carrier. Do not mix right and left side bearings or races.
6. Remove pinion nut. Remove pinion flange with puller. Using a press, remove drive pinion (together with rear bearing inner race, bearing spacer and adjusting washer or collapsible spacer) from carrier. Remove pinion oil seal. Remove front bearing inner race. Remove side oil seal.
7. Remove pinion bearing outer races using a brass drift. Remove pinion rear bearing inner race and the drive pinion height adjusting washer.

FYI: Keep left and right side bearings separate, as they are not interchangeable.

8. To disassemble differential case, use Side Bearing Puller (ST33051001) with Driver (ST33061000) and remove side bearings. Loosen ring gear bolts in diagonal pattern. To remove ring gear, tap with soft hammer evenly all around gear to prevent binding.

FYI: Mark gears and thrust washers for installation in original positions.

9. On R200, drive out pinion mate shaft lock pin from ring gear side. On R200V, mark differential cases for reassembly reference. Remove screws and separate differential cases. On all models, remove pinion mate shaft, pinion gears, side gears and thrust washers.

Cleaning and Inspection
Thoroughly clean and inspect all parts for wear and damage. Check bearings for scratches, pitting and flaking. Check tapered roller bearings for rough rotation. Replace bearings as necessary.

Reassembly and Adjustments
1. For R200V, go to step 4). For R200, assemble pinion gears, side gears and thrust washers in original positions in differential case. Fit pinion mate shaft to differential case so it aligns with lock pin holes.
2. Measure side gear-to-thrust washer clearance.
Clearance should be:
  • .004-.008" (.10-.20 mm), Select thrust washer to obtain specified clearance.
3. Install pinion mate shaft lock pin and lock in place with punch. Apply gear oil to gear tooth surface and thrust surfaces. Ensure gears rotate smoothly. Go to step 9).

FYI: On R200V, whenever side gears or pinion mate gears are replaced, replace thrust washers.

4. On R200V, clean and lubricate gears. Install previously removed thrust washer on right side gear. Select a thrust washer (for measurement purposes) and install on left side gear. Assemble gears and pinion mate shaft into differential case. Using 2 screws, temporarily tighten differential case.
5. Position differential assembly with right side gear upward. Insert 2 .0012" (.030 mm) feeler gauges 180 degrees apart, between right side gear and thrust washer.
6. Attempt to rotate right side gear. If right side gear cannot be rotated, replace left side gear thrust washer with a thinner one. If right side gear can be rotated, replace .0012" (.030 mm) feeler gauges with .0039" (.100 mm) thick feeler gauges.
7. Right side gear should rotate with thinner feeler gauges in place but not rotate with thicker feeler gauges in place. If right side gear rotates with thicker feeler gauges in place, replace left side gear thrust washer with a thicker one.
8. Repeat thrust washer selection procedure for left side gear. Change right side gear thrust washers when adjusting left side gear. Select thrust washers as necessary to ensure both side gears can rotate while thinner feeler gauges are in place and side gears are stationary with thicker feeler gauges in place. Tighten differential case bolts to specification.

FYI: Tighten ring gear bolts diagonally, while tapping around bolt heads with hammer.

9. Apply Loctite to ring gear bolt threads. Install ring gear on differential case. Install bolts and new lock washers, and tighten to specification.
10. Ensure parts are clean and lubricated with light oil or Dexron type automatic transmission fluid. Place differential case, with side bearings and races installed, into gear carrier.
11. Install side bearing spacer on ring gear side of gear carrier.
Using Side Bearing Spacer Drift (J-25267), install both original side bearing preload washers on the opposite side of the gear carrier from the spacer just installed.
12. Install side bearing caps in original locations. Tighten cap bolts to specification. Turn ring gear several times to seat bearings.
13. Attach Spring Gauge (J-8129) to ring gear bolt. It should require 7.7-8.8 lbs. (3.5-4.0 kg) of torque to turn ring gear and assembly. Use thicker or thinner washers to obtain correct reading.
14. After correct reading is obtained, remove differential case from gear carrier and save washers for use during final assembly.

FYI: See manufacturer's Pinion Preload Washer/Shim Selector Kit (J-34309) for complete tool and component identification.

15. Ensure parts are clean and bearings are lubricated. Install front and rear pinion bearings onto Pinion Preload Washer/Shim Selector (J-34309).
16. Ensure that Front Pinion Bearing Seat (J-34309-3) is secured tightly against the Gauge Anvil (J-34309-2). Turn Front Pinion Bearing Pilot (J-34309-5) to secure bearing in its proper position.
17. Rear Pinion Bearing Pilot (J-34309-8) is used to center rear pinion bearing. Use Rear Pinion Bearing Locking Seat (J-34309-4) to secure bearing in tool assembly.
18. On R200V, place a .098" (2.49 mm) thick plain washer between Preload Washer/Shim Selector Components (J-34309-9 and J-34309-16). Components must be parallel with .098" (2.49 mm) clearance.
19. On all models, place assembled rear pinion bearing and preload washer selector into gear carrier.
Place assembled front pinion bearing and preload washer selector into gear carrier. Screw 2 tool and bearing assemblies together by hand.
20. Ensure that Pinion Height Gauge Plate (J-34309-16) turns a full 360 degrees and go to next step.
21. Turn assembly several times to seat bearings. Using an INCH-lb. torque wrench at end of Gauge Anvil (J-34309-2), measure turning torque. Correct reading should be 8.7-11.3 INCH lbs. (1.0-1.3 N.m).
22. Place Pinion Height Adapter (J-34309-11 "R200A") onto gauge plate and hand tighten. Place pinion bearing spacer (small end first) over Gauge Anvil (J-34309-2). Seat small end of pinion bearing spacer squarely against Gauge Screw (J-34309-1).
23. Place a standard .138" (3.51 mm) thick feeler gauge between pinion bearing spacer and gauge screw. With another set of feeler gauges, measure clearance between pinion bearing and gauge screw. See image.
24. This measurement is equal to the required drive pinion preload adjusting washer thickness. Select required bearing preload washer from pinion bearing prelouad adjustment washers. Set selected pinion bearing preload adjustment washer aside for use during final assembly.

Most vids aren't done by us. We embed them from youtube to provide an extra source of information to support the repair info. If you can provide us with a better video that we can use then that would help. THanks.
