Question about Pontiac Grand Prix
Perhaps the air conditioner compressor pulley or the pulley and clutch assembly? to eliminate the need to evacuate the system and replace the refrigerant?!?!?
Yes you can on earlier models of AC compressors but this is a american model car and i have never seen one so i couldnt say for definate but i do it all the time on earlier cars thats accesable like a renault or a VW but you will need a big pair of water pump pliers to hold the clutch still whilst you undo the nut in the middle .

as you face the engine the thermostat bell is on the right (drivers side) Follow the radiatoe hose. Remove the two bolts and raise the bell still attatched to the hose. the thermostat is there with the rubber seal. You can gently pry the thermostat out with a screwdriver or something similar. Put in new thermostat be sure it is the same as the old one, and then replace or change the seal (be sure it is the smae size and thickness as the old one as I got the wrong size from Napa) Then replace the bell, and tighten, but not over tighten. I hope this helps!

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
