Question about Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

Can a Sanden Auto AC compressor be bench tested other than for the clutch operation? I can put 12 volts on it and get the clutch to operate but is there a way to test the actual compressor action, beyond hand turning and listening for the sound of air being squeezed???

    Thank you.....sometimes the most obvious solution
    is not so obvious...I can't see why it would not work.
    Thanks

Connect a gauge to the compressor to measure the pressure. See

2002 astro van , just shut down, lost all power, including breaks and power steering, what can cause this to happen? Battery drained


if the batter has been drained during operation, it points to a serious alternator /regulator failure
The vehicle uses most of the alternator out put during normal operations and a percentage is left over to charge the battery
Check for voltage out put from the alternator and ensure that it is dc volts as ac volts indicate a rectifier failure and will not charge a battery
check for drive belt tension and condition as a bad belt will not drive an alternator at full capacity
I suggest that you have the alternator and regulator bench tested by an accredited auto electrician and have the battery load tested as well to check for broken cell bridges

i think the hub is threaded on to shaft tip.
some types:
One is for a MINI YORK CMPR, YORK OR TECUMSEH compressor and one is for a SANDEN/SANKYO compressor.


some need a puller
others, need that and a holder to keep it still
do not mix up or lose any spacers inside.
a newbearing is easy to find and replace. on car.

My 2002 neon's A/C blows warm air. The vent pressure is working well- but it blows warmer than the outside air. Can I fix this myself? What might the problem be?


If you are handy, yes you can. Most likely causes are loss of freon which would prevent the compressor clutch from being engaged and operating the compressor, a lack of 12 volts being applied to the compressor clutch because the a/c compressor fuse or relay has failed, preventing the clutch from engaging the compressor, or the compressor clutch itself failing. Easy test is to watch the compressor pulley with the motor running. The pulley will, of course be spinning, but the circular assembly mounted to the front of the pulley will spin with the pulley only when the compressor is engaged. There is a sensor mounted to the a/c line that prevents the clutch from engaging the compressor if there in not enough freon in the system. You could go to auto zone or checker and buy a can of freon r-134 with a hose for around $15.00. It is fairly easy to follow the instructions to charge the system. If, after allowing some of the can to pressurize the system, the compressor clutch engages then you can continue to charge the system. Cold air should start to blow by the time the can is empty. Or you can locate the a/c relay located in the fuse panel, remove its plastic cover and manually close the contacts while observing the compressor pulley assembly. If the clutch doesn't engage then the problem in probably electrical, a fuse, the relay or the electric clutch itself. Go to auto zone and check you their dvd on a/c repair for under $9.00. Hope this helps! Dano

2006 vw Jetta 2.0Turbo GLI, Air conditioning not cooling. Compressor is Regulator Valve(no clutch) type made by Zelex/Valeo. System is fully charged, but not building any pressure (as displayed on...


Hi MechxD.

About the Jetta AC, if it is charged it is usually the compressor. I think that there was a service bulletin recalling Sanden AC compressor 1K0 820 803 S

Check limiter (see pic.) and control valve. The limiter gets easily damaged and control valve gets stuck with metal particles.

1993 accord ex ac not blowing cold replaced compressor last year freon level ok unit not engaging is there an easy fix?


With the engine turned off, test the a/c compressor clutch by applying 12 volts to the contacts. You should hear a click of the clutch engaging, and if not, the clutch is acting erratically.

2002 ford mustang ac will not come on. Problem is intermittent. I have checked the low and high pressure switches and fuses. what else is there to check?


When the ac acts up,test voltage at the ac clutch,if there is voltage(12 volts to 14)then the clutch is the problem,also,try and wiggle the low pressure switch ,to see if it tries to come back on,,,have some one put some ac gauges on the ac system and let the ac run,and watch to see if the low side falls down to 25 psi or lower,if it does,then the orifice tube is stopping up.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

The car has been sitting for almost a year. I started it today to drive out of necessity. The A/C clutch does not engage. How do i jumper across the pressure switch to add freon? Thanks, Ken


dont!!! an you start to add freon, itll start to cycle the compresor clutch until within safe operating pressure and then it will hold clutch in constant. charge liquid(with can upside down). if wont take freon in this manner than your more than low on charge. running low on charge will quickly destroy pump, especiallt those old harrisons. the refrigerant also cools the compressor. good luck and wear gloves-

Ac problem


Static pressure(Non operating) usually is around 70 lbs and should be even on both sides. Sounds like the systen is too low for the computer to allow operation. I suspect a small leak somewhere. Adding as little as 1/2 lb should allow operation and leak testing.
