AC don't work, but that is because the R12 have leaked out.(Low pressure
swich shuted it down.) Many of the O-rings are crimped, and it leaks there.
I have decided not to repair it because we don't have so many hot days here
in Norway every year. To expensive.
Specially thanks to Steve Barker and Backyards mecanic from me here in
The car now uses 1,15 litres of gas every 10 kilometer. (Don't know what
MPG.) No oil and no coolant use.
Is it any more things I should look after ? Or just now drive and enjoy it.
I love to drive this van, and it's one of the best car I ever had to sit and
drive in. (I have back pain problems.)
