Re: Ac Charge Ports

Hi Phil: I charged the system using R12a refrigerant. I realize this is quite a controversial subject to use this, but here in Canada it is legal and readily available. As the AC system system looked in good shape and I had just gotten the car I decided to go the first summer on R12a and see how it ...

Ac Charge Ports

Good day all: I have a 1988 635CSI that is mostly all original including the AC system. The original system was R12 and I intend to check/recharge it this spring . My question: the LP charge port is clearly visible, but I cannot find a HP service port. I noticed an extra hex cap on the drier today w...

Re: Ac evaporator drain -plugged!

Thanks folks for the photo and the additional tips. I have decided to leave this problem until the winter when I have more time to deal with it as it may turn into a bigger job. I will report back when I get to it. Thanks. Karl

Good day all: I finally got my ac working in my 1988 CSI , only to find a new problem. My carpets are wet on the passenger side and there is no water dripping under the car when the ac is running.

OBC - Range and MPG modes not functioning

Good day Forum: I am requesting some help with my OBC computer please. My car is a 1988 635CSI, and I repaired the OBC over the winter by installing a new backlite in the unit. I was very pleased to see it fire up and is functioning in all modes EXCEPT for the Range and the MPG and AVG MPH mode. RAN...

Re: Power Steering low pressure hoses - substitutions?

Thanks for the tip. I was on the hunt for hoses today and got the same 5/8 inch SAE hose to go from the reservoir to the pump inlet. I also got a 1/4 inch fuel line and a 5/16 in line to use for the 2 small lines (to the brake bomb and master cyl). All these 3 lines look like they are going to work ...

Power Steering low pressure hoses - substitutions?

Hi all: I am in the process of replacing the 4 low pressure power steering hoses on my 635. The correct hoses are metric size which are hard to find in my area.

Good day folks: I am a newbie... just purchased a 88 635CSI. What a cool car.... I think I am really going to enjoy it! Got an automatic (as my wife wants to drive it as well). My question: The Owner's manual calls for Dexron for the trans and the PS/Brake servo system. Can you advise exactly what t...

Re: Radio, Sunroof motor, Seat Belts...

Good day:

I am a new 635 owner ( an 88) and I live in the Halifax area. I am interested in the antenna and am also looking for a driver's side seat belt receptacle (female end with the red release button). Would you have one?

Thanks
