    may be low on freon. Add one can and see if it starts clicking on and off. Do not add more than 2 cans or you will damage compressor.

Low pressure in system or a bad pressure sensor will not allow compressor to engage as a safety feature. Rfill or troubleshoot pressure/leak issue.

93 cutlass supreme 3.4 dohc how to replace AC compressor


It isnt hard to replace, but, it is illegal to vent refrigerent into the atmosphere(If theres any in the system?!), also you would needs a few "special" tools(vacuum pump, and a/c manifold gauge set to recharge the system! A shorter belt is always available, But, depending how the belt is supposed to be run, you may not be able to go that route! You could try searching for "ac bypass pulley" if you dont want to keep the ac working!(alot cheaper than buying an ac compressor!

Why ac blowing hot air


start off with the cheap possibilities and make your way threw.
I'd start off with replacing Air Charge temperature sensor, make sure your AC Hose isnt leaking anywhere, if those dont solve it then replace ur AC clutch, last chance would be replacing AC compressor. sometimes the compressor will malfunction randomly. or the AC clutch might malfunction aswell. covering these steps somewhere along the line you will have working AC again! good luck

Can the ac compressor clutch on a 2006 dodge stratus be replaced without replacing the entire ac compressor?


i dont know of any domestic cars that dont have rebuildable/replaceable clutches on the compressor. best way to find out is to call a parts store and see if you can get the part.

Is the low pressure side of 92 F-150 on the condenser or near the compressor.


LOW PRESSURE SIDE IS THE SUCTION CHARGE SIDE WILL BE FROM AC COMPRESSOR REFRIGERANT LINE TO THE ACCUMULATOR OR DRIER TO THE EVAPORATOR IN THE FIRE WALL THE AC COMPRESSOR LINE TO THE CONDENSOR IS THE HIGH PRESSURE SIDE YOUR DISCHARGE SIDE. DONT DONT TRY CHARGING AC SYSTEM AT THE HIGH PRESSURE SIDE. CHARGE AT THE LOW PRESSURE SIDE.

The air condition wont turn on. The windows dont work, and the spedometer doesnt work


This just happened to me yesterday. First, push the AC button to turn the AC off. Then, find the fuse pannel on the driver's side under the dash. Mine is behind the ash tray. Replace the 10 amp fuse (marked fuse #18 on my 1995 Camry manual) and the windows, spedo, tach, etc will come back on. My problem is the bearings on my AC clutch heated up a plastic piece between the AC clutch and AC compressor and the plastic piece blew up and sprayed hot plastic all around the AC compressor. The car runs, but no AC and if I push the AC button, the fuse blows again. I am planning to unbolt the compressor from the engine block, and replace the clutch assembly and pully without disconnecting the hoses. Disconnecting the hoses will vent coolant to the atmosphere and require professional equipment to clean the oil from the system, pull a vaccuum and recharge the system. The AC compressor clutch assembly is available at Advanced Auto for $98. The whole compressor is $247 but requires a lot of work to recharge. You could also take the clutch assembly or whole compressor off and just leave it off and get a shorter (40" in my case) belt to go just to the alternator.
Good Luck.

Hi..i had to change a/c condencer, and the a/c compresser, both at the same time.how will i go about charging the system? do i need to add coolent too both ports? or just the low side.?


YOU TAKE TO A GARAGE LET THEM PUMP IT DOWN FIRST MAKE SURE YOU PUT THE RIGHT AMOUNT REFRIGERANT OIL IN COMPRESSOR.IT COME WITH SHIPPING OIL IN IT BUT YOU HAVE TO POUR IT OUT.PUT IN THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF REFRIGERANT OIL IN COMPRESSOR LOOK IN OWNERS MANUAL TO PUT IN THE RIGHT AMOUNT.NOW IF YOUR OLD COMPRESSOR SEIZED OR LOCKED UP THEN LET GARAGE FLUSH OUT METAL SHAVINGS OUT .IF YOU DONT FLUSH OUT SHAVINGS THE NEW COMPRESSOR WILL BE DESTROYED.ALSO YOU HAVE TO REPLACED THE ACCUMULATOR OR ORIFICE TUBE IF EQUIPPED.IF OLD COMPRESSOR DIDNT LOCK UP.PUT NEW REFRIGERANT OIL IN COMPRESSOR IT TAKE AT LEAST 1 OUNCE OF OIL BUT CHECK OWNERS MANUAL ALL VECHICLE HAS DIFFERENT SPECS.AFTER COMPRESSOR OIL BEEN PUT IN EVERYTHING ALL REFRIGERANT LINES TIGHT.TAKE VECHICLE TO A GARAGE THAT DO AIR CONDITIONER WORK.THEY HAVE TO USE A VACUUM PUMP TO PUMP DOWN THE AC SYSTEM TO REMOVE MOISTURE AND LEAK TEST THE SYSTEM WHILE IT PUMP DOWN.IF YOU DONT LET THE GARAGE PUMP DOWN SYSTEM. THE MOISTURE WILL FREEZE UP IN AC SYSTEM CAUSING POOR OR NO COOLING.THE GARAGE GOING TO CHARGE YOU TO PUMP DOWN AND CHARGE UP SYSTEM.IT WOULD BE CHEAPER TO DO THIS THAN TO BUY A VACUUM PUMP AND MANIFOLD GAUGE SET.WHEN DOING AC WORK YOU NEED SPECIAL EQUIPMENT AND TOOLS TO DO THE JOB OR THE AC SYSTEM WILL NOT WORK RIGHT.

Ac stopped working , smelled smoke, shut car off and on then ac worked fine but hearing odd roaring noise every now and then


Sounds like the AC compressor is going bad. Have the compressor tested and I'm sure the belt is what you were smelling. make sure nothing is touching the AC belt. If the compressor stops working properly the belt will burn. Solution= replace compressor and belt.
