Question about 1999 Nissan Quest

1 Answer

Replacing Nissan Quest AC

My compressor blew and in the process of replacing the compressor accumulator and valve. Came accross a few things in the process.

How does the accumlator hose disconect from the side next to the firewall. It looks like it should slide out, but I have twisted and pulled at it without success. I don't want to pull to hard and risk breaking a line.
Also do you know how much compressor oil it will take. Under the hood it says 325 cc. That just seems like a lot.

I thought I would have seen the orifice tube, but haven't. Do you know where I should expect to find it in order to replace it?

Orifice tube is in the high pressure liquid line going into evaporator. You will see a small crimp in the line.

Replace AC Compressor, Accumulator, Orifice Tube, and Hose Assembly


Made a video on how to change the AC Compressor, Accumulator, Orifice Tube, and Hose Assembly on my 2003 Ford Focus 2.0L SOHC SPI. Symptoms started off as blowing hot air at idle and then it just blew hot air all the time and Firestone told me it had not compression and needed the compressor replaced. I got all my parts at AutoZone for a around $230. Save 20 On Online Ship To Home Orders Of 100 Or More

The squeeling is the belt because the air compresor is likely seizing. At idle it can't turn the compressor, in motionthe compressor probably turns and cools the air. Most air conditioners come on when the defroster is on.

Ac compressor will not engage when ac is on. System seems to be full of gas. Quit without warning. This is on a 2003 Nissan Altima with 2.5L. Secondary fan does come on when AC is switched on.


Check A/C compressor relay. When you say it seems to be full of gas(freon) have you actually put a pressure gauge on the system? If the pressure is too low, the compressor will not engage. If the compressor relay is functioning, check for power at the compressor clutch. If it has power to it and it still is not engaging, the A/C clutch may need replacing. It is usually almost as economical to replace the complete compressor with clutch installed than to just purchase a clutch. Keep in mind if you replace the compressor you should also replace the receiver/dryer also referred to as the accumulator.

This vehicle has an electrical Short or a bad Ac compressor. Check the wire that connect to the Ac clutch its mounted on the top of the compressor. Sometimes the insulation on this wire become broken and if it touches any metal parts of you vehicle will short out the system and blow the fuse. Make sure that you are using the right amp fuse first. Good Luck
