If your compressor is leaking oil it has most likely lost enough charge in the system that the low pressure switch has activated. This will keep the compressor from engaging. This is a safety override to keep you from ruining the compressor as the charge has lubrication oil in it and to run the compressor without it will ruin the compressor and contaminate the system which will require a complete flush and charge. Get a shop to fix the seal in the compressor and have the charge topped off and hopefully you will be good to go.

Air conditioning compressoor leaking oil


I have not seen green fluid from an A/C compressor. There are some sealers which are put into an A/C system to seal leaks and refresh the system. Can not identify a brand, there can be differences in oil but again I am not familiar with colored oil.

Best advice is that the compressor will seize without oil and not work without Freon. Have a technician try to save your compressor by fixing leaks and refilling Freon.

Regularly change oil, plugs, wires, fuel filter, flush cooling system, and keep an eye on things like tire wear, brakes, ****** fluid, brake fluid, etc. Basic maintenance can keep you from big problems, but as with any vehicle, they arent indestructible and things will just eventually go bad. Then the fun begins :)

2002 lancer air cond serviced recently and now the compressor wont kick in


The compressor is designed not to kick in unless there is enough coolant in the system. If the air conditioner is low on coolant it will not run when the AC is turned on. If it was serviced but not sealed up correctly , the coolant may have leaked out. You will have to stop the leak and recharge it for the compressor to kick in.
Also be sure to double check the fuses on the car. Flat fuses and block fuses just in case a system was accidentally shorted.

Air cond. Compressor doesn't turn on Is there a separate switch?


Well yes, there is a separate switch. If the A/C system is low on freon, the low pressure switch will keep the compressor from engaging to save it from damage due to no lubrication. The freon helps with lubricating the compressor. Get you a can of 134a from the parts store and add a little to see if the compressor will come on. It should come on before one can is used. Now for the freon to be gone means you have a leak. So if the can gets you cooling, try to find the leak so you can stay cool.

Air cond. compressor doesn't turn on Is there a separate switch?


Look around the compressor or by the lines into the firewall a glass indicator this is the freon level indicator. If it is clear you may be low on freon, pssible leak. The compressor will not run with low freon.

Try turning on defrosters

Air cond in my subaru (2001 outback) not working. Just blows hot air


Try adding some freon to your a/c system. Your local auto parts store may do it for free for you if you buy the can.

If that doesn't help and you don't have any leaks, then it's time fore a new a/c compressor.

Hope this helps a little!
