Chevrolet Captiva Service & Repair Manual: Air Conditioning Refrigerant Recover

The ACR 2000 air conditioning service center tool No. J 43600, or equivalent, recovers, recycles, evacuates and recharges A/C refrigerant quickly, accurately and automatically. The unit has a display screen that contains the function controls and displays prompts that will lead through the recover, recycle, evacuate and recharge operations. R-134a is recovered into and charged out of an internal storage vessel. The tool automatically replenishes this vessel from an external source tank in order to maintain a constant 12-15 lbs. of A/C refrigerant. The tool has a built in A/C refrigerant identifier that will test for contamination, prior to recovery and will indicate if there are foreign gases present in the A/C system. If foreign gases are present, the tool will not recover the refrigerant from the A/C system. The tool also features automatic air purge, single pass recycling and an automatic oil drain. Refer to tool manufacturers instruction manual for operation and setup instruction. Always recharge the A/C System with the proper amount of R-134a.

Recovering the air conditioning refrigerant from a 2014 Chevrolet Captiva is a crucial process typically performed when servicing the A/C system to ensure safe and proper handling of refrigerant. Begin by parking the vehicle on a flat surface, turning off the engine, and engaging the parking brake. Ensure you have the necessary tools and equipment, including an A/C recovery machine, safety goggles, and gloves.

First, connect the A/C recovery machine to the vehicle's service ports. The service ports are usually located on the high-pressure and low-pressure sides of the A/C system. Follow the instructions provided with the recovery machine to attach the hoses correctly. Once connected, start the recovery machine according to its operational guidelines. The machine will extract the refrigerant from the system and store it in a designated recovery cylinder.

After the recovery process is complete, ensure the system is fully evacuated by checking the pressure gauges on the recovery machine. Disconnect the hoses from the service ports and properly seal the recovery cylinder. It's essential to follow all safety and environmental regulations when handling and disposing of refrigerant. If you're not familiar with the procedure or lack the necessary equipment, it is recommended to seek assistance from a certified A/C technician to ensure the job is done safely and correctly.
