Hello deb683
The dealer cost for the compressor is $626.05
The autozone cost is between $200.00+$300.00 (
I don't know the current salvage yard rate, but I'll guess between $100.00+$150.00 for a good one. Book labor is 0.9hrs
The cost to evacuate and recharge the system with R134 is extra and
prices vary. I't will be cheaper to have it done by the shop that installs
the compressor as they have to evacuate the system anyway.
Hope this helps.

Parts and labor plus they need to do vacuum and then recharge if all for under 500.00 your good. a new compressor can run from 125 to 250 each from advance auto parts labor to install probably charge you for at least 3hrs.

I had lost my keys to my 1997 buick lesabre do i need to call the buick dealership and get the keys made or should i switch the igniion switch from the junk yard or would it mess it up

LeSabre has theft deterrent system. If you have ever seen a theft lamp in the dash the key is special. Don't replace the lock cylinder.
The dealer can punch an ignition key for you. Take the title and registration to the parts dept with your id they should be able to help. Call dealer and ask how much for service. Check pricing at local locksmith. Sometimes the local guy needs the business and will give a better price. If this helps please rate my help. Have a better day

Sounds to me like you have a leak leak somewhere. They can put a dye in the lines to find out where the leak is, Then have that fixed and get it recharged again. Its an expensive procedure though. I hope this helped

If you're replacing the springs as well, you can put regular shocks/struts in. The springs on that car didn't offer full support as they were designed to work in conjunction with the support from the air struts also. Just make sure the new springs are specified for a car without air ride. You will also need to remove the fuse/relay for the air ride compressor because the veh. goes through a "air pressure replenishment" cycle every time the key is turned to run. The compressor will then run for 7 minutes until it times out when it determines that it isn't doing anything to ride height.

You need to have the pressures checked you may have another problem your system never needs to be opened or anything cleaned out as long as the system has never been open to outside air for long period of time.

How much ac compressor oil is needed in a 1997 Buick Lesabre?


The best way to know how much oil is needed is to first drain the old compressor. If the old compressor has more that 2oz, add the amount that came out of the old compressor. If less than 2oz, add only 2oz.
