Price of A/C for an AE86?? Thu, 25 September 2003 21:29 Go to next message
Hi guys,

Just want to get an idea of how much it would cost to get air conditioning installed in an AE86. Ballpark figure would be good. Am looking at purchasing a sprinter but it currently does not have a/c. Also, are the 4AC motors prone to leak oil from in between the rockercovers??

Thanks in advance for the advice

Although I dont know what a rockercover is Very Happy I know my 4AC doesnt leak any oil. When I first bought it, it needed a new o-ring but otherwise it was fine.

theres only one rocker cover dood, and if it leaks all it costs JS to fix and is real easy. buy A/C from someone who has removed it (such as myself but i cant be assed taking the inside bits out) then fit it yourself, or, as you sound not so mechanically minded, bring all the bits to a mechanic and get them to put it in then get it gassed up.

by law it needs to be upgraded to the new type of gas, which is about $150-$200 from memory. or you can find a place that still has the old gas and slip them a fifty and they may gas it for you with the old stuff Smile

Damn! $1700-$2K thats about what the cars worth??!! Shocked
I was thinking more on the lines of buying a second hand one fr wreckers and getting it installed by a mechanic....less than 1K?? Sad anyways...will let u all know if the deal goes thru. Is $2600 for a stock AE86 without A/C a good price?? Comes with the 4AC of course...

It would depend on the condition of the sprinter for $2500, check it out mechanically and physically (no accidents) first.

Mines still running on the old gas, and hasnt shown any signs of leakage. Legally does it need to be upgraded or only when it has leaked and needs regasing?

Just get it regassed when it needs it man.... ie. it doesn't cool you like it should! Smile

You don't get fined for still having the old type of refrigerant in there.

Hello to summer and the A/C posts. Smile
