Frequently Asked Questions:
Is Cap Needed On Re-Charge Port For Ford Focus Air Conditioning?
I Want To Add Air Conditioning Coolant To My 2003 Ford Focus. I Found Out The Re-Charge Port Is Located In A Hard To See Place Near The Front Right Wheel. I Can See The Port And The Plastic Cap Is Missing.
Is The Cap Needed, Or Is It Just Cosmetic (Like A Tire Valve Cap)?
Sorry, If I Sound Ignorant. I Know Very Little About Cars.
There is no such thing as an ignorant question when asked in sincerity.
The cap is not needed to hold the charge. If the shrader valve leaks the cap can slow down that leak, but if it's missing it can't do that. It also keeps dirt out of the valve stem preventing dirt from getting into the system when you recharge it.
So if you don't have one try to find one at your local auto parts store.
It's a decent question.
Air Conditioning Question?
My A/C Has Been Running All Day. Cool Air Is Blowing Out, But My House Does Not Feel Cool...Only Near The Vents You Can Feel That Its Cooler. My Thermostat Is Set At 69 But It Is Reading 84...What Could The Problem Be?
Units condenser may need cleaned,filter may need changed but most likely needs to be recharged.
What Does It Mean When The Mechanic Tells You Your Air Conditioning In Your Car Needs To Be Updated?
I Own A Lincoln Town Car, 1991, And Ive Been To 3 Mechanics About The Air Conditioning Not Working. Ive Been Told That The Air Conditioning In The Car Needs To Be Updated, And From Each Place I Was Quoted At Between $500 And $650 To Have It Fixed.
What Exactly Do They Do To &Quot;Update It&Quot;?
A 1991 automobile has air-conditioning designed to use Freon-12.
That type of Freon was banned for use many years ago, and manufacturers built equipment to use Freon-134A. Freon-12 is no longer available, although there are people who claim to have some. Maybe they had a can or two they bought years ago, or maybe they got some that was smuggled into the United States. Repair shops are required to use special equipment when they remove Freon from an automotive air-conditioning system and to store it for recycling so it can be cleaned are re-used.
All automobile air conditioning equipment leaks a tiny bit of the working fluid, and over time it has to be replenished, and the mechanics have no Freon-12 to replenish with. They cannot put in Freon-134A as it requires higher working pressures, and your compressor and hoses cannot operate at those higher pressures. So they will have to extract the whatever Freon-12 is left inside the system and then remove the hoses and compressor, then install the replacement hoses and compressor and fill with Freon-134A.

Police Officer Suspended After Racially Charged E-Mail
By Matt Collette
Globe Correspondent / July 30, 2009
An Officer In The Boston Police Department Has Been Suspended After Allegedly Writing A Racially Charged E-Mail About Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. To Colleagues At The National Guard, A Law Enforcement Official Said.
The Law Enforcement Official, Speaking On Condition Of Anonymity, Said Officer Justin Barrett Referred To The Black Scholar As A “Jungle Monkey’’ In The Letter, Written In Reaction To News Coverage Of Gates’S Arrest July 16. Barrett Was Suspended Tuesday, Pending A Termination Hearing.
Mayor Thomas M. Menino Condemned The Comment And Called For The Officer’S Dismissal.
“I Was Angry About The Incident When The Commissioner Spoke To Me [Tuesday] Night,’’ Menino Said. “I Said, ‘He Has No Place In This Department, And We Have To Take His Badge Away.’ That Stuff Doesn’T Belong In Our City, And We’Re Not Going To Tolerate It.’’
The Mayor Said He Has Not Seen The E-Mail And While The Officer Is Not Officially Terminated, He Might As Well Be. “He’S Gone - G-O-N-E. I Don’T Care, It’S Like Cancer, You Don’T Keep Those Cancers Around.’’
In An Interview That Wcvb-Tv Aired Last Night, Barrett Said He Used “A Poor Choice Of Words.’’
“I Did Not Mean To Offend Anyone,’’ He Said. “The Words Were Being Used To Characterize Behavior, Not Describe Anyone . . . I Didn’T Mean It In A Racist Way. I Treat Everyone With Dignity And Respect.’’
Barrett And His Lawyer Said They Will Fight The Charges. “People Are Making It About Race. It Is Not About Race,’’ Barrett Said. Gates Was Arrested By Cambridge Police Sergeant James Crowley On Charges Of Disorderly Conduct.
Though The Charges Were Dropped, The Case Became National News After Gates Accused Crowley Of Arresting Him Because He Was Black. The Two Men Are Set To Have A Beer With Obama Tonight.
Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis Stripped Barrett, 36, Of His Gun And Badge Tuesday, Said Police Spokeswoman Elaine Driscoll. Barrett, Who Has Been On The Job For Two Years And Has No Previous Disciplinary Record, Faces A Termination Hearing In The Next Week, She Said.
When A Supervisor Confronted Barrett About The E-Mail, He Admitted To Writing It, Driscoll Said.
“[Tuesday] Afternoon, Commissioner Davis Was Made Aware That Officer Barrett Was The Author Of Correspondence Which Included Racially Charged Language,’’ She Said. “At That Time, Commissioner Davis Immediately Stripped Officer Barrett Of His Gun And Badge, And At This Time We Will Be Moving Forward With The Hearing Process.’’
It Was Unclear Last Night When The Letter Was Sent. Barrett, Who Was Assigned To District B-3 In Dorchester, Will Receive Legal Representation From Boston Police Patrolmen’S Association.
In A Letter To Union Members Posted On Their Website, Union Officials Denounced The Statements But Asked “That The Facts Be Determined Before A Rush To Judgment Is Made.
“While The Boston Police Patrolmen’S Association Has A Duty To Assure That The Contractual And Due Process Rights Of Each And Every Member Are Protected, We Strongly Denounce These Statements As Being Offensive And Hurtful.’’ The Letter Is Signed By Thomas J. Nee, The Union President; Ronald T. Macgillivray, The Vice President; John D. Broderick, Jr., Treasurer; And Thomas N. Pratt, Secretary.
A Spokesman For The Massachusetts National Guard, With Which Barrett Also Serves, Did Not Respond To Messages Left At His Office Or On His Cellphone. Wcvb Reported That Barrett Was Relieved Of National Guard Duty.

Yes, absolutely, I believe Sanford should be relieved of his command. Who's to say that he won't go AWOL for a weekend, and go hiking through the Appalachian Hiking Trails via Buenes Aires.
South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford has proved himself to be an embarrassment not only to his family, but more importantly, to his state and to our nation.
Twice in my lifetime, the extracurricular activities of my state's governor (New York) has proven to be an embarrassment to us. The first time was in 1963 when Gov. Nelson Rockefeller divorced his wife of 31 years to marry 'Happy' Murphy. These actions cost Rockefeller the 1964 GOP presidential nomination. Infidelity reared its ugly head again when Rockefeller died, in 1979, when he was with his 25-year-old secretary. The scandalous circumstances of his death were widely reported. In March of 2008, Gov. Eliot Spitzer was implicated in a prostitution ring. He resigned within days of the public disclosure.
The actions of Gov. Sanford cannot be excused. They go beyond having an affair. He disappeared for days. He broke his bond with the people of South Carolina. His trust and his ability to effectively govern have been irreparably damaged. He simply must go.
His repeated apologies, and draping himself around his Christian faith and saying God will make him a better leader, do not fly with me. As a congressman in Washington, D.C., he shared a townhouse with other good "Christian evangelical" lawmakers, including Nevada Sen. John Ensign and former Mississippi Congressman Chip Pickering, who, since then, have all been implicated in extramarital affairs. Must be something in the drinking water, what do you think? Sanford has to go.
