We recharged the freon in my 1999 Intrepid but when ac is on there is a weird noise and now the defroster makes the same noise. Is my compressor going out?

Weird as it sounds, the AC is on while the defroster is operating. You mention recharging the freon, but did you also evacuate and reinstall the working fluid? A certain amount of lubricant is supposed to be in the lines. Without it, yes, your compressor is at risk.

It may be too late, but you can try getting it professionally evac/filled and see if that helps. Also if you remove the belt and energize the clutch, you can spin the compressor by hand and listen for dragging sounds. Good luck!

I need to replace my a/c compressor on my 1999 Dodge Intrepid,the bearings are bad how can I fix it so I can still drive it without replacing a/c compressor?

Get a smaller serpentine belt that would fit the rest of the drive pulleys and not attach to the pulley on the clutch pulley of the AC compressor.Inquire at an auto parts store or Dodge dealer to find out what size of belt could be used on an Intrepid without AC,

Do you have a vacuum pump & gauges?
Are you trained in A/C work?

I need to recharge the 134A A/C dual system in a 1999 3.3 litre Dodge Grand Caravan. Most if not all of the oil was probably lost when the van hit a deer. The high side line was broken as was the...

Most of the oil should be in your compressor, if the compressor was not damaged and not replaced you should be ok on oil other than recharging it with a 134 w/oil. That should be sufficient. Usually there is about 8 oz put directly into the compressor when replaced. In that vehicle I believe it should alos be recharged with 32 oz. of freon.
