So I can just replace ac compressor an bypass heater core an ac should work for 1991 Lincoln Town car

If the compressor is the problem A/C should work. But I work with idiots. I replace the compressor, expansion valve and dryer. And clean the system out. They replaced the compressor. then the expansion valve. then did it again after they clean the lines out, Then again, because the dryer held to much metal from the compressor going bad. And yes, you can bypass the heater core. But if the blend door actuator is bad, it won't be cold.

How to bypass air conditioning compressor on 2002 ford taurus?

You would need to replace the compressor with an A/C illiminator bracket/pulley, you cannot just put a shorter belt as it would still make contact with the a/c pulley, at least on a 3.0L OHV version.

What is the oil capacity for a/c compressor

The rule is, if you are replacing the compressor with a new or rebuilt first you make sure it did not come filled with oil first, if not then 2 oz of oil and then stand compressor on the pulley for 5 mins to allow oil to lube seal and front shaft then after you install it and lines are connected you will spin clutch 10 times, not pulley but clutch, this allows oil to be pumped out of compressor, you should also be replacing the filter dryer and maybe flush system if compressor locked up, if the clutch went bad you may skip the flush.when replacing dryer add 2 oz to the dryer also. good day.

How much compressor oil do I add when changing the ac compressor on a 04 expedition with front and rear ac?

When replacing the compressor the dryer should also be replaced, you put 2oz of oil in compressor and stand compressor on pulley for 5 min, then after install turn clutch 10 turns to pump most oil out of compressor, the dryer should have 2 oz of oil also, if you are flushing the ac system out with a solvent then more oil is needed for the system, if your just replacing the compressor then 2oz in compressor.

Air suspension is up in rear of car. how do I

If I'm understanding the question correctly, the problem is the rear is stuck in the "jacked up" position. If you start the car and after a short while the check suspension message comes on, most likely the problem is a rusted corroded vent solenoid in the compressor. When this solenoid sticks closed, the air can't vent to the atmosphere. Keep in mind this problem is a very common one and the root cause is excessive moisture in the system. While replacing the compressor/dryer would get it working normally again, if the moisture problem isn't addressed, the replacement compressor WILL BE short lived as well. RECAP: Short term....replace the compressor/dryer. Long Term....replace the compressor/dryer, then in 30 days replace the dryer only....then again in 6 months. Want to be done it those problems forever? Do a Lincoln Town Car Air Suspension Conversion on your car and be done with those expensive repairs forever!......for less than the cost of a replacement compressor.

Need to replace the Air Compressor on my 2002 Sant FE. Hyundai Dealer recommended "only" the compressor needed to be replace. Although I am not an expert on air conditioning, this made me skeptical...

Just let the dealer replace the dryer/filter. Its a very cheap part. The only time it needs to be replaced is if there is a mechanical copressor failure. I recomend changing filter/dryer . Also orings on both dryer/filter and compressor. It won't hurt to just replace comressor though and see if this fixes.

Air condition problem

When you say "noisy", is it a metallic grinding noise? Or, did someone overcharge the system. If the compressor IS internally noisy, replacing it is only half of the job. Anytime that comperssors fail, metallic particles get in the system, from the grinding of the compressor vanes or bearings...and need to be removed. Most of the time, they are trapped in a device called the "receiver-dryer", located next to the condenser in the front of the car. So, replace the compressor, replace the receiver-dryer, and evacuate the system. Hold a vacuum for 30 minutes, and then recharge. Not replacing the receiver dryer will damage the new compressor.

Ac compressor oil

First off is your compressor pre-lubed? to find out, remove shipping caps from ports and tip to side and see if any oil comes out. As a rule of thumb, The oil is sold in a small bottle pre measured for the entire system. 1/4 bottle per item (compressor, evaporator,condenser, and filter/dryer) The label showing cc's will do fine for your oil needs as the system will find its own level once activated. Oil continuously flows througout system. Need I remind you that when replacing compressor you should also replace filter/dryer so you do not repeat this job in two months.
