So go to the following link and download the 93 service manual. In the hvac section, you will find the charge info and everything else about the hvac.

Ecm will not supply ground to cooling fan relays if ac switch is on, but R134 pressure is too low. If you had an obd 1 scanner that reads real time sendor data, the R134 pressure would be one of the listings of the data stream.

One more thing, with compressor clutch not kicked on, your ac gauge will read much higher than actual pressure in system.

So how can I manually engage the compressor so it can suck in more ac? Is it possible to manually engage it so I can add more Freon?
