The compressor is mounted in parallel with the engine's crankshaft, the serpentine belt which is at the end of the engine spins the compressor, alternator, power steering pump, and who knows what else. Compressor is a large barrel shaped contraption 8-10 inches long and 6 inches in diameter with the belt at one end and two hoses as big around as a man's thumb attached to it. Generally it will be on the front of the engine, near the radiator assuming the engine sits sideways, black or dark gray in color.

Go to the autozone or advance website search for a compressor, then go look under your hood and find the thing which looks like the thing in the picture.

Location of the Ac low pressure switch 2007 Mkz


The low pressure switch (also known as the AC compressor switch) will be under the hood, it will be located in the low side AC line from the AC compressor, this is the larger of the two lines from the AC compressor. See picture below, looks like it has a three wire connector. Also what is the AC doing that makes you think this switch is defective? Cycling on and off constantly?

Where is the air compressor dryer located on a 1999 mercury mystique


I assume you mean the ac compressor dryer. It is located on the large low pressure suction pipe between the ac compressor and the firewall of the vehicle. It is about the size of a tall beer can and will have the large pipe going in one side and out the other.

I have a 2006 Mazda3. I noticed whenever my air conditioner or heat is on it makes a sound like a lawn mower when I acceralate. Any ideas of what this could be ?


Well, I think you can rule out the AC/heater fan inside the car. That would make noise even just sitting in the driveway.

Many/most vehicles are designed to run the AC compressor not only when the AC is on but also when the defroster is on. This is to keep the AC compressor lubricated through the winter months also.

It should not be a belt problem as that belt is always turning anyway which should then rule out the pulley bearing at the AC compressor.

I do suspect your problem is a major internal failure of the AC compressor. This can be easily checked by a technician [or yourself if qualified]. Locate the electrical connector at or to the AC compressor. Two people: With the AC turned on, in park, increase the engine speed so you can here the noise. Disconnect the AC compressor electrical connector. If the noise stops instantly, the compressor has failed. A quite expensive repair. Have a reputable shop locate a re-manufactured compressor for you. That will help some on the cost.
Bestaluckto you!!

My husbands 93 park ave ac compressor is not running, when he relplaced the ac relay it worked one time and then no longer works. There doesn't seem to be any power getting to the compressor, could there...


If it has the auto air functions.On the passenger side under glovebox remove the black cover under the dash and there is a hidden fuse block with a ac fuse. Check for this a very common issue. Also if the ac is fully charged you can unplug the low pressure switch located on the accumulator( silver canister located by the relays towards the firewall) and take a wire and place between the two terminals just make sure the compressor will does come on.If the ac is turned on and you jump that switch and the compressor does turn and ac starts working then a good possibilty that the low pressure may be bad. Would check the fuse first.

Ac blow hot air.has been recharged


First you need to check if the compressor is actually kicking in when started and you can do that by looking at it and you will see if it is working or not. If not working you ned to check the folowing : 1- AC compressor is getting electric , if not check the relay for the AS compressor. 2- Check if the AC compressor's clutch is kicking in (that is the part that is located on the front of the compressor , where the belt is fitted) 3- Check the compression of the AC compressor via a proffessional.
