Question about 2000 Volkswagen GTI
Air conditioner pump sometimes slips for 30 seconds on serpentine belt sometimes when you turn AC on then works fine after. This is very hard on belt, it lasts only about 3000 miles as is, and one almost broke.
Installed new belts, tensioner, and even used belt grip. the engine almost stalled when the AC was turned on after I used belt grip and it still slipped. After the initial 30 second slip and squeal it operates fine. The AC has the original factory charge. A shop said the inlet and outlet pressures were perfect and it operated fine for them. They said Oh this may cost $1,800 to fix (which would replace everything for that money-which I do not have).
See if that vehicle came without A/C. If so ck for the belt availability and see if it can be put od bypassing the compressor. At the least, disconnect the compressor clutch wirin g so the A/C will not function at all. until you can manage a the cost of a pump. Good luck, Ned
