    Thanks everyone.
    Couldn't find the BMW technical article though.

    To my thinking, normal low and low high side equals bad compressor.
    I do not know if they are NLA but will look into it
    it is cool enough at present so won’t do anything soon.
    Thanks
    This post helped me a lot when i was working on my A/C:

    Hi Bill
    On my gauges- Low side 15-20 psi on a normal warm day while holding the revs at around 1500, you should see the gas bubbles clear out and disappear in the receiver dryer sign glass. On a hot day I sometimes have a garden hose available to spray the condenser to cool it down to see if the sight glass clear out and the low pressures come down to 15-20 psi.

    I dont know what the high side runs at I do everything through the low side.
    Dave.

    started a topic R134a system pressures

    R134a system pressures

    My system has been converted to r134 for many years. Now it is not blowing as cold as it used to. I have the manual and the temp/pressure graph for r12, but wondered if the pressures were different for r134.
    I have a manifold gauge to use but want to accurately use the readings.
    Thanks.
