SOURCE: 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier A/C does not work

Your compressor's shaft seal is the most likely culprit. If you can find someone to replace the shaft seal and body gaskets in your compressor, you should be fine. Cavaliers use a V5 compressor, an excellent but leak-prone when unused.

2003 gmc sierra 2500 hd axial seal leaks


not enough detail for what end the leak is at. Front sounds strange for a pickup unless 4 wheel drive and then if the style is open shaft behind the brake rotor this would require dissemble of a few more things. If from the rear,which is the common repair, this is from a worn axle bearing on the axle shaft,which causes wear to the rear axle seal either located on the shaft before the bearing to the outside. Or the second option can be a axle seal located in the end of the axle housing. when you remove the axle shaft you would be looking at the end of the housing tube and see this seal. On older models ( My younger days ) they would also install one on the inner side of the housing next to the Gear Unit in the center of housing, ( also known as the PIG Unit ).need further info....

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.

HAVE A 1998 MERCURY SABLE. I AM TRYING TO CHANGE THE AC LINES AND WHEN I PULLED THEM OFF,BLACK FLUID WAS LEAKING FROM THE COMPRESSOR


You had a compressor failure

Now you have a big job ahead of you

You will have to install a new compressor

Remove & Flush all hose assy's

Remove & flush the condensor

Replace the drier or accumulator

Flush the evaporator in place

Put new oil in all components in the correct amounts

My ac compressor locked up. What needs to be


I would suggest leak testing it you can take hose with clamps to the outlet and put a psi gauge on it then hook a compressor to the other end with a hose with clamps. This will show you if you have any obvious leaks you dont need alot 10psi and hold as long as you would like atleast a min you can also spray it with soap bubles to be sure. the condenser if its not leaking would be fine with a flush.

I need to change the ac condensor is it hard to change out what do i have to do


This will apply to most automotive A/C systems. You have to remove the accumulator, the compressor and the orifice tube (expansion valve).
Flush ALL the lines with an A/C flushing agent.
Install the correct amount of refrigerant oil into each A/C component per the manufacturers specifications.
You have to install a new accumulator, orifice tube and compressor and necessay "O" rings and seals.
Evacuate the system using a vacuum pump.
Check for any LEAKS.
Recharge the A/C system with the correct amount of freon per the manufacturers specifications.

Took my 99 gmc sierra to get the ac check and was told it has a leak from the compressor will sealeant seal compressor if it not a big leak


No. The rubber seal on the front of the compressor leaks on those. The sealant is more for a evap core, or a condensor leak.

Most probable leak place would be the condensor or the lines.
