What does the condenser on a car engine do?

"ITS PART OF THE COOLING SYSTEM?? " That is what the part is, not what it does. The Condenser, condenses the refrigerant while releasing heat that was in the car. Allowing the system to cool the inside of the car.

If an R 12 refrigeration system has its air cooled condensing unit on a 100F roof and the condenser outlet temperature refrigerant is 115F with how much sub cooling is the condenser operating?


What does refrigerant compatibility mean not what it is?

Refrigerant compaticilty is about suiting the refrigerant to your refrigerant system. Every cooling system has refrigerant in it which depends on the type of system you use. If the refrigerant not matches with your system, it wont work. This is refrigerant compatibility.

What does the condenser the refrigerant does?

The condenser is a coil in a refrigeration system. It is on the low pressure side and is exposed to ambient air temp. The refrigerant goes through that and is cooled off and is then sent to the compressor.

You have air condtioner on drive hit the brake and air get hot?

Air conditioning relies largely on the ram air effect. As it circulates through the system, the refrigerant becomes superheated and cooled at various points in the air conditioning system, and will change states from a vapor to a liquid. From the compressor, the refrigerant comes out as a high pressure vapor, and enters the condenser. The condenser is essentially a heat exchanger, which requires the refrigerant to be hotter than the ambient air temperature outside. When a vehicle suddenly decelerates, the cooling effects of the ram air effect are reduced, and heat exchange isn't conducted as efficiently as when the vehicle is in motion.

The substance that absorbs and releases heat in a cooling system?

A "refrigerant".

How much refrigerant does a air conditioner condenser use?

The refrigerant is for the entire air conditioner system not just for the condenser units. First, this question is not specific! There is whole bunch air conditioner condenser. Each manufacture design different condenser capacity. I might come back to this question.

What role does a compessor play in a refrigeration system?

In vapour compressor refrigeration system the low pressure and temperature vapour refrigerant from evaporator is compressed. where it is compressed to a high pressure and temperature. From compressor refrigerant goes to condenser where where it changes the phase. from condenser refrigerant goes to evaporator through expansion device.

Remove ac condenser on 1996 maxima?

* Have the refrigerant discharged and recycled by an air condition technician * Disconnect the negative battery cable and drain the cooling system * Disconnect the condenser line and discharge line from the condenser.Cap the fittings on the conderser * Remove the radiator * Remove the condenser retaining bolts * Lean the condenser back toward the engine and remove it from the car

What are the wiring instructions for a condenser on a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan?

I have never heard of any wiring to a condenser on any car. The condenser carries the refrigerant in an air conditioner system.
