    Gauges do not show vacuum - a very important function

    2 of 2 people found this helpful

    The most important thing to realize about this set is that the gauges do not read vacuum. This makes it pretty much useless unless you are only topping up an existing system. One could argue that it is useful to diagnose system issues because you have the ability to read both gauges, but if you have to replace any parts or open the system, you will need to evacuate the air out of the system before you recharge, and in order to do that properly, you would have to then buy a set that allows you to read vacuum.

    I purchased this set as an impulse purchase - I had been meaning to buy one and I saw this one on the promo rack by the cash register. I didn't notice the lack of vacuum until after I used it as I only had to top up a vehicle this time and I didn't need to use vacuum for that.

    The quality was OK, although it didn't really have a "solid" feel to it. The main body is plastic - whether that makes a difference, I don't know. The fittings felt very light, like they used the absolute minimum amount of metal to make them, but they seemed to work ok and they didn't lose pressure. The hoses were WAY too short to be useful. The hoses were so short that I wasn't even able to hook the set up to my vehicle and then hang the unit from my hood - it didn't even reach.

    So I gave this 2 stars, mostly because it actually worked at what it was designed to do, but it is really just a toy that only looks like a fully functional professional set.

    I took mine back (thanks Auto Zone) and purchased the Quest (part 429) set instead.

    Pros: Cheap, Allows reading high and low side (vs. just low side like the can mounted gauges)

    Cons: Only reads positive pressure - does NOT read vacuum, hoses are way too short to be useful

    Junk!

    1 of 5 people found this helpful

    I bought this and was very disappointed when I opened the package, months later. I figured I paid $55.00 dollars for it it should be a good unit. Did not know I had to immediately open it. With the new summer season coming I thought I would check the cars and make sure they where all good. As soon as I opened it and realized I got screwed I tried to take it back and at least exchange it for store credit. It was obvious it was not used but they told me it has been over 90 days. Needless to say I will never shop at autozone again and I know I am only one person but I do work on cars on the side so I have done a fair amount of business their. NO MORE!

    Pros: In stock

    Cons: Very expensive junk!

    Works great

    I've owned this for about 3 years and used it multiple times on multiple vehicles. Works great!

    Pros: Easy to use. Gauges are easy to read.

    On third, use High Pressure side exploded!

    2 of 3 people found this helpful

    Had for 4 days. Used it on 97 Accord SE (3rd use) Low pressure said 45 psi and the high said 350 psi. I had the vehicle idling to and within approx 1 min. the high side burst loose from the pressure fitting and evacuated the entire a\c in my face within seconds. Now I'm suffering the side effects. Not worth it for safety reasons!

    Pros: Cheap

    Cons: You get what you pay for
