Is the clutch on the compressor engaging? If you have the A/C on while idling, you should see the clutch engage and disengage (the middle of the pulley for the a/c will start to spin), the RPMs will rev up when it engages. Within 10 minutes you should see it do this a few times. Let me know what you find or know about this and I will work from there.

    Well, then I suggest taking it to wherever you had it charged or call a shop up and see if they would mind checking the high and low pressure lines (possibly for free, some shops are really nice), then you may possibly pick up on a problem. I am assuming that the blower motor is working through all of the testing? (This is the fan that blows the air into the passenger compartment). If it is holding pressure, then the only parts that would be at fault is the pump/clutch and the control panel. Very strange to say the least

Can over filling your freon on a 2006 dodge ram deisel seixe the a/c pump/compressor?

Yes it can. Also if it it is not filled properly and moisture can enter the system. When replacing the compressor the filter dryer should be replaced and the system will need to be evacuated and charged with the proper refrigerant and oil .

How to replace a bad compressor on 2003 lincoln mkz

If the old compressor is bad and the a/c system is still charged with refrigerant, you're going to have to take it to an automotive A/C shop to have the system evacuated...even if you plan to replace the compressor yourself. Then after replacement, you'll have to take it back to the shop to have the system recharged. If you're concerned about the shop marking up the price of a new compressor, ask them if you can provide the replacement part for them to install after they evacuate the system. That way, you will only have the labor to R&R the compressor and the cost of evacuating and recharging the refrigerant.

If i am changing out a ac compressor at home. after i am done replacing it what is the best thing to do to recharge the system. i dont have a ac recovery machine an dont have the money to bring it to a...

Well, If you want to do the job correctly, you need to properly recover the freon and then evacuate the system before recharging. Failure to do so is ILLEGAL for the recovery part. EPA laws forbid knowingly releasing freon into the atmosphere. There are some hefty fines to pay if the authorities were to find out. Not to mention that I really don't appreciate people who knowingly and willingly pollute the air that I breath. - take that as you will.

For the evacuation part, failure to properly evacuate your system before recharging will leave moisture in the system that can destroy your new compressor. If that happens, you won't be saving any money!The air that is left in the system will take up room in the system that is needed for a proper freon charge and can adversely affect how well your system cools when you are finished.

Here is a possible alternative. Take it to a shop just for recovery and evacuation. The labor charges will not be that much. In fact, some shops will do the recovery for free if you tell them they can just keep any freon that is recovered. You need to do a recovery to remove the freon from the system anyway so nothing blows up in your face when you disconnect system components. Then you can return to the shop after replacing the compressor and drier fo an evacuation. This is a good idea also because the system can be checked for leaks by evacuating and seing if the system holds vacuum. That way you won't be wasting any freon dumping it into a leaking system.
Then you can recharge the system yourself using one of the kits available at your local parts store.

On my BMW 325XI Wagon, the ac is not cooling, the drier, expansion valve, compressor & ac control module have been replaced. Starts to cool as low as 65 degrees & then compressor shuts off.

sounds like unproper ac evacuation before charging the freon to your ac system. do a proper evacuetion to the system check the ac compressor oil charge the proper freon & amount check the vehicle tag for the amount of freon under the wood close to the radiator

Hello ! On 03 G35 we replaced compressor , but after recharge a/c system there is not enough cold , around 16-17'C . The pressure on low side around 50 PSI, High side - 150 PSI. Any idea ? Thank you

Did you replace the dryer/receiver, evacuate the system and then add the correct oil charge?
Your pressures look too high which will result from over charging and prevent adequate cooling.
Frequently, a failed compressor will release shavings into the system and thsoe will clog the orafice tube requiring replacement.

Recover any R134A and clean and recycle it through the correct equipment. It's worth hiring professionals.
