Removed a/c compressor. unbolted fitting at back of compressor to pull compress out.do the 2 hoses attached to it have to be plugged ? what are they?


Why did you remove it? That is a really big deal because of contamination issues and potentially dangerous pressures. The fact that you are asking this is scary. Those are the inlet and output of the compressor. Yes, they have to be plugged to avoid contamination. You need professional help with this.

Can i change an intake valve spring without pulling the motor?


yes you can but you need special tools you need an air compressor and hose with a fitting that will screw into your sprrk plug hole. then you need an over head valve spring compressor. the air from the compressor will hold the valve against the head while you remove the valve retainers or collets to remove the spring. then you just assemble it all again is not hard but you do need the right gear

How do you jump a/c compressor so it will take the freon?


The interuptions in compressor engagement is due to low side drops which is controlled by the pressure switch mounted on the low hose or large metal accumulator on the passenger side. Low side hoses are larger and the accumulator is on the passenger side engine compartment...a paper clip works fine jumping this low side pressure switch out until freon pressures increase enough to keep compressor running to accept freon.

95 Geo Tracker AC line


Question: Is fitting leaking at the compressor or at the rubber hose end.

If leaking at the compressor hard line fitting. Try replacing "o"ring.
If leaking at the rubber hose end. Remove line and take to a HVAC shop that can replace "barrier hose (rubber hose using your fittings)

Any repair will require discharging the system.

I have a 94 tracker with hoses leaking. I would recommend replacing the rubber hose sections on both suction and liquid lines at the same time. You will have to discharge the system for either repair.
I would also recommend replacing all "o" rings accessible at this time along with a receiver dryer.

I work in the Auto parts sales for a large after market parts supply company and have found that hoses are not available from anybody, including a dealer for my 94 tracker. The system is very expensive to repair if you can find parts.

Hope this will help.

Ac compressor is not working


$450 is a good price to replace an AC compressor, but $150 and a little elbow grease is much cheaper. Make sure you have all the right tools to fit. If you have a Galant that is 1 to 13 years old don't worry about the refrigerant because it takes the new R134a, non damaging to the environment, unlike the previous refrigerant, chlorine based Freon. After releasing the pressure from the system and disconnecting the battery, loosen the belt via the tention arm. Remove the two lines from the front of the old compressor (2 screws). Then disconnect the sensor, and then the 4 screws holding up the compressor to the engine. Tilt the compressor so that no oil spills on to the ground. Then line up the new compressor (keep the plugs in the holes in until you are ready to re-attach the hoses so the oil does not spill out). I recommend using new gaskets so you have an air tight system. Take out the plugs, then connect the hoses. Tighten everything up, connect the belt, tighten it, recharge the system. It should take about 2 large cans of R134a.
Take to a mechanic friend and have him/her check out your handy work. Have a beer and slap your belly on doing such a fine job.
