    Default Air conditioning system?

    The air conditioning system in the Elk hasn't been used for 15 years. It's been connected, with no freon in it, and car running. What is the proper way to clean it, before adding the 134 freon?

    Is there any pressure in the system? If not, you probably have a leak somewhere. If you have pressure, should be good to go and recharge. Hope someone else with more knowledge on AC chimes in on testing for leaks.

    Thanks for answering. There's no pressure or leaks that I know of. I've had the lined apart before and the system wasn't charged. I want to clean out the lines and replace the O rings. What is proper way to clean out the lines?
