Question about 2004 Dodge Durango

Changing a sensor underneath ac compressor.

We need to change a sensor that is underneath the a/c compressor, the manual says that we should just be able to lift the compressor out, and get to it, however we can't and when we tried, the compressor started hissing and leaking. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

The crankshaft position sensor is on the right side of the engine just to the rear of the right hand exhaust manifold, the sensor is attached to the block with two bolts, part of the sensor overhangs the transmission bell housing. Look at the bell housing and start going up, you will see the sensor almost inline with the right exhaust manifold. It has a gromment that overhangs the transmissions bell housing. Use a flashlight from below and you will see it, good luck

Check for pressure switch located at the top of the drier-if there try jumping across it

as there are many places in the compressor from where the feron gets leaked but if its leaking heavily and if not possible to stop it is quite possible you will have to replace the compressor.

My yaris 2007 car ac stopped working before 2 months slowly , means sometimes work and some times doesnt work , and not at all . before 2 weeks i showed 2 car ac tachnicians both told to change control...

The best I can tell u is that the smell is from a leak at the evaporator or connections. I advise to get another opinion because it sounds like a lot of guesswork. if u get the work done, make sure the work comes with a warrantee! I gave all my customers warrantees for 20 years. That's part of the diagnostic business! Good Luck If u don't get a warrantee ,don't get the diagnosis or work done

So you used a vacuum pump to evacuate the system and did everything according to standard? The compressor stops because the Freon is lost.

What model ac. compressor will enter change with a 95 gmc Sonoma sle 4wd

Salvage yards have interchange manuals (very pricey), but why would you consider putting an old used ac compressor on? You will need to replace dryer and orifice tube anyway, so why not do it right?

Why ac blowing hot air

start off with the cheap possibilities and make your way threw.
I'd start off with replacing Air Charge temperature sensor, make sure your AC Hose isnt leaking anywhere, if those dont solve it then replace ur AC clutch, last chance would be replacing AC compressor. sometimes the compressor will malfunction randomly. or the AC clutch might malfunction aswell. covering these steps somewhere along the line you will have working AC again! good luck

Problem is that the AC CUT OFF relay energised permanently. therefore electric clutch of compressor swicthed off permanatly, because current to compressor clutch goes through NC (Normally Closed) contact...

check for the cut off switch or sensor on the a/c plumbing to see if normally closed or normally open, and if it is causing the the AC Cut of relay to be energized permanently.

See if disconnecting the switch on the plumbinug changes anything. Or if using a test light to ground out the terminals does anything different on the AC system.

Ac not working on a 2003 honda civic si. only has 4.8 volts at ac pressure switch, freon is good, all major components are good, fuses & relays good. when ac switch is activated the cooling fan does...

Since al components are functional then the only thing left is the wiring. And since the power isn't completely off that means that you have a bad contact. Take the center console out and check the entire wire loom starting with the relay.
You should also take a look at the oil sensor on top of the compressor - it might be faulty. Make a bridge over it and see it the ac starts.

There is a low pitched growling noise coming from the ac compressor of my 2004 grand caravan when engaged at idle. Compressor, belt, have already been replaced twice. Any thoughts?

Are you sure the noise is coming from the compressor and not the belt tensioner or other accessories, when you turn the ac on it put more of a load on the engine. If not since the compressor was changed twice was it properly oiled and the clutch turned manually to insure proper lubrication. I am hoping if it is the compressor that the reciever dryer and expansion valve was changed and the ac system was flushed well, to insure no contamination, or blockage damaging the new compressor.
