Question about 2003 Dodge Durango

My 2003 dodge duranog has had two a/c issues

My 2003 dodge duranog has had two different a/c compressors spray frion all over the engine compartment. The first time it was fixed a couple days later it sprayed frion all over. I took it back replaced it with a new compressor, flushed, charged, new expansion valve, and a month later it does it again.
How can I get this fixed?

Sounds like there's a blockage in the system. If they didn't change the drier, that's probably where it is.

    If air is not flowing freely through the condenser, because it's very dirty or the fan(s) aren't working properly, it will cause the pressure to be too high. I've never seen that cause a compressor to blow the seals but there's always a first time. That would also cause the engine tempature to be hotter than normal, especially at idle. If I were you, I'd just take it back to who ever fixed it and ask them to make it right.

Where do I add frion to my 2003 chevy malibu


To the suction port, or low pressure side of the system. If you do not know what one that is, you might want to get some help. You need to have the proper amount of freon in the system or there could be compressor damage.

You get a belt for that engine without A/C . It will be shorter and you can't leave the compressor on the engine. So keeping dirt out of the hoses is most important.

My t cam 2001 ac light is flashing and took it to a machanic he said it wasn't frion that it was electrical...what electrical problem is it?


First, try replacing the Vent/AC air filter located behind the glove compartment. If this doesn't fix the problem, you may have a failed compressor relay, in the relay box near the battery.
If all else fails, you may have a failed compressor/clutch.

Dodge grand caraven stalls when the ideling while the A/C on.


You need to clean the air bypass valve and the throttle body, they both cause this stalling concern due to sludge buildup, you will need a can of carb spray, remove the air intake hose from the engine, have someone hold the idle up while you spray about half the can into the intake manifold, shut off the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes to clear any codes that have been set, reconnect and drive a day or so, this should cure your issue.
