Hi friends,

I am planning to carry out AC services and repairs of my car my self. But I need HVAC vacuum pump and vacuum gauge. Do you know any place to buy such gadgets with a fair price? Your comments are highly appreciated. Bye for now.

There are many shops in Union Place at the Nawaloka Hospital end to buy these stuff .

Agree with @Twin Turbo. If all you're going to work on is your car, the investment you'll have to make on all the equipment will outweigh the actual benefits. Remember that it's not only gauges that you will have to buy. You'll need welding equipment, refrigerant and many other tools as well, depending on what needs to be repaired.

Also, a properly maintained and repaired AC system can run for years on end without issues. So again, your investment will not be of actual benefit.

I agree with the Davy and Twin Turbo , that the cost is not justifiable .

I did this DIY work for my old car for the transformation of  R12 to R134A  two years ago.

The investment was around 35K for the necessary equipment and tools plus another 45K for the Compressor, Condenser, Filter , Expansion Valve , Evaporator, lines & Gas etc.

The work is hard under the dash and lower engine bay. Also need some skill for jointing lines etc. The welding works for lines done at a local a service provider,

The project was successful, still prevailing with much cool.

Agreed with the guys above, the average cost to do a service (flush, clean, re-gas) would be around 4-5k and you can go on for about 2 years if there are no leaks. So is it really worth it ?
