Not a DIY job. The pressures are potentially dangerous and when a compressor goes, it usually leaves behind metal shavings and gunk that has to be cleaned out.

Can I bypass the ac compressor on my 2001 Pontiac Sunfire when replacing the serpentine belt?


We had a car that we had to bypass the compressor but my mechanic said we could not do it so he disconnected all the lines on the compressor and hooked it up that way. No we did not have air conditioning but we drove the car that way for several years after that.

Change the expansion valve. Yours is close to the dryer(big aluminium canister). You have to open the line to replace it.

LOUD NOISE COMING FROM AIR CONDITIONER PUMP


You are fixing to loose your ac. The compressor is failing. It will have to be replaced. The compressor runs about $300 or a little more at a parts store. I changed mine myself. It's fairly simple.

Do I need a spring compressor just to remove and replace the front left and right strut mounts on a 1997 pontiac grand prix gt?


If your replacing it with a quick strut which is the spring,mount, and strut assembly then a spring compressor is not required.If replacing just the mounts then definitely a spring compressor is required. Please use extreme caution when compressing and removing strut assemblies as the springs maintain alot of pressure on them.

How to change the belt on 1996 pontiac boneville


on the 3.8 liter v6, the pulley on the a/c compressor can be replaced if it is locked up (frozen) on the compressor. the question is what is actually locked up? if the a/c compressor is locked up but the a/c compressor pulley turns, then you need to disconnect the wire harness connecter that is on the a/c compressor pulley/clutch so you can run the defrost on the climate control. many GM cars will run the a/c when you switch the climate control to defrost especially in the winter so the a/c system stays lubed and does not lock up the a/c compressor from lack of use. you can then relace the belt without replacing the compressor pulley/clutch assembly. if the compressor pulley/clutch assembly is locked up, it will need to be replaced. i do not believe there is a way to route the belt bypassing the a/c compressor. you dont want the water pump turning in the wrong direction if you reroute the belt wrong or the engine will overheat. i hope this helps!

A/C compressor bearing sounds bad. Can bearing & pulley be replac


it is best to replace the whole compressor but if it was me I would go and get a can of 134A oil and put that in first to see that helps with the problem and if not then replace the compressor they are somewhere around $40 to $75 at a good salvage yard and you can try www.junkyarddog.com and if you cannot find one there try www.schramauto.com or call them at 1-800-292-1032

When should you have to replace


Both components are not "service interval" items and are not changed on a schedule. You need to replace them if they fail. Most often link fails...compressors are fairly durable and should last a long time unless physically damaged (not saying they never fail, just not that often)
