When they changed your compressor they should have changed you expantion valve (or orfice) and your reciever drier,point being when that compressior went bad there will be small parts from the compressor and plug things up expantion valve or the drier that is the filter for your system, thanks and I hope this helps you

COMPRESSER KICKS ON (blows cold)only ON LOW IF YOU TURN BLOWER ON ANTHING BUT 1 the ac light goes out and compressor kicks off, changed the climate control thing and that didn't fix it!!

that sounds like normal operation to me. might be low on charge therefore won't kick in on high speed due to not damaging the system and running the ac compressor to cause damage. have the system checked at a local shop. if ok, then recheck that everything is plugged in. all sensor on the ac lines. sounds like it might even be the low side cut off switch or plugged orfice tube or something along those left to a professional with a machine where they can monitor pressures, and proper operation and see what's going on.

I have dexcool pooring from the bottom of my 2005 pontiac grand prixs a/c compressor? does the A/C compressor have rad fluid in it?

The dexcool isn't coming from the A/C compressor ! More then likely coming from the engine . No the A/C compressor doesn't have coolant in it , has refrigerant ! Sounds to me like your engine has a problem ! Your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop !

My a/c is not blowing cold, my compressor is coming on?

You could be low on refrigerant. This will cause a non cooling ac system

A/c blows cool air, compressor cycles on and off constantly. Perssure checks good

You may have cold air, but the system is low on charge, give it time and the air temp at the registers will rise and the compressor stop working when the charge gets to low.

When i switch a/c on i see a/c light on , but only fan no condition , i test all relay , are working i checked the fuse is ok , but i relase no power drwing to the comprssor . i want know where that wire...

The compressor clutch wire goes to the pressure switch , which is often located on the side of the evaporator, or in the line going to the evaporator. When there is enough system pressure, the switch has continuity, and if the system is low or empty, the switch is open, to prevent the compressor from running . If your system is fully charged, you can probably guess the switch is bad, but most likely your AC system is low on refridgerant, and keeping the compressor from running.
hope this helps!

How to install a air conpressor for 1995 jeep grand cherokee

Installing a compressor is a complex job there is alot more to just braking the lines and removing the bolts to the compressor and if you are not sure you really should leave it to a service department.I will tell you to proper steps. First you need to have the system evacuated of freon before you can break the lines.Then if you are installing a new compressor you will need to also purchase the accumilator as well as orfice tube or expansion valve wich ever the case may be. Alot of places will not warranty the compressor unless you change out the accumilator as well as the orfice tube or expasion valve. While you are changing these parts out also change out the orings associated with each part. You will also want to buy A/C flush and flush out the entire A/C system once you have done this begain to assemble the parts but dont forget to oil the compressor and accumilator and put some in the condensor. once the parts have been assembled then you need to have the system vacumed out of all moisture. This is crucial or you will have premature compressor failer. Once the system is vacumed its time to recharge make sure you hook up to the right line when charging the system as hooking to the wrong line will cause your can to burst assuming you are using small cans to recharge.charge only the required amount of freon do not over charge. If your comprssor locked up make sure its the compressor and not the compressor clutch lot less expensive to replace it. Also if its not blowing cold air and only cool air it could be orfice tube plugged up.

A/c is blowing hot air


Wel I am not a mechanic or anything, but i haev had some experience with aircons. The one problem might be that there is a leak in the pipes. 9 out of ten times the leak is where the various pipes join. you can simply take a spaner and tighten them otherwise the leak maybe where the compressor is. if the pipes were blocked then it will not blow any cold air and you said it did blow cold air for a while. the way to find a leak is take soap water in a spray gun and spray the soap water in on the pipes and joints, this should blow a bubble where the leak is. however this can only work if you have gas in the compressor. so fill in more aircon gas first.
hope i am right.

I have a Mazda mx6 and the aircon won''t work.

what won't work? the interior fan or is all else well except the cooling part? if the compressor does not come on, then perhaps you need to refill gas. in the very front of the car under the hood, you remove the plastic covers where the hood opener is, and you will see some pipes & a canister. on top of this canister there is a clear small round site glass, you can check there for gas if you have dye, or you can unscrew the cap over the refill nipples and depress with you finger nail, air (gas) should blow out under good pressure, not a little only. there is also a fuse you can check situated in the same place, this is for the compressor
