Actually might be not to hard, the problem is than you need a recovery machine to save the refrigerant and then recharge the system with refrigerant, and acording to the year of your car it might be R-12 OR R-134. REFRIGERANT, if r-134 it is ok but if it has R-12 then just have a shop working on it since the r-12 is too expensive, i will recomend you to retrofit the system tro freeze-12 all this 12s and 134s than i'm talking about is the kind of refrigerant on your car, but if it has r-134 leave it like that,
and feel fre to ask for any thing elese and good luck
just one more thing, if you are going to try to recharge the system by your self make sure to do it by the low pressure side and not the high because it will be very very dangerous.

Auto leveler compressor of 97 Olds LSS can be replaced or install new strut assembly. Will be 2 mths before i can afford either. Can I pump air into the shocks and make it stay there?

My 05 lesaber compressor quit working and what caused it to quit was the old air struts wore out and made the compressor run all the time causing it to over heat and burn out. Rather than replacing the air shocks and compressor my mechanic installed a set of air shocks and installed an air line from them to a spot below the trunk lid on the bottom of the trunk. They have what looks like the air nozzle for a spare tire I use an air compressor or even the air pump you blow up a spare tire. I keep about 60 pounds in them all the time and check the air pressure abour every three months. Cheaper doing it that way.

What's the standard shocks for it

Usually when a car has air shocks that car is built with an air compressor to keep those shocks blown up. My Buick had air shocks and a compressor but the shocks wore out and was losing all the air making the compressor wear out. Instead of replacing everything at a great expense I had new air shocks put on throwing the compressor away. and run an air line just under my license plate, Just pump them up like pumping a tire . I check them about every three months and saved a lot of money.

Check that the wiring for the compressor clutch is connected. Have the system checked for the correct amount of gas as too little or too much will stop the clutch of the compressor. If the old compressor failed and the system didn't have a new receiver/dryer fitted there is every possibility that the tx valve is blocked. have the pressure in the system checked while a blockage will switch off the clutch also.

Trying to find a wiring diagram for air compressor. Rear air ride is out compressor not running at all checked fuses just replaced relay .

I know that you are trying to fix that air ride, but i put these replacement springs on my 93 towncar. Fixed the compressor problem (eliminated it) and cost a whole lot less. The install is kinda hard if you've never dropped a rear end before. Need a good tool set, a couple jacks, and jack stands to get it done. Check it out. Even having a mechanic install them would be cheaper than replacing a compressor.

Put new AC compressor on, ice cold air for 2 days then blowing cool to warm air. Compressor is working but air not cold. Sometimes will get a small burst of cooler air but doesn't last.

You did'nt mention if you got the system refilled with Refrigerant after the Compressor was replaced or not. If not, that could be the problem.

2000 Chevy Cavalier making a noise when air is shut off

This problem sounds like the aircompressor pully, the bearing is shot.
With the engine running and the air conditioner off there is a grinding noise, look at the compressor pully, does it wobble? Then turn on the air conditioner and the noise stops, look at the compressor pully again, the wobble stops? If so that's the problem.

In a 1995 cirrus, where is the air compressor located and is it hard to fix?

it should be on the front side of the motor where the belt is and it is recommended that a shop evacuate the system. but then you can remove compressor and flush the system with compressed air then add pag oil and new compressor, then go back down to shop and have vacum test and freon added. it is alot cheaper.

What do I have to do to change the a/c compressor are there any special procedures or can I take the old one off put the new one on and then charge the system with coolant I have a 1996 oldsmobile delta...

if old compressor fail your air condition has to be discharge at dealership or a garage that does ac repair.then the ac lines has to be flushed out before putting on new one. because old one when it fails clutch lock up or compressor fail.small metal particles get in line.stop up orifice will have to replace orifice tube the accumalator .you will need vacuum pump to pump down air conditioner .to get moisture out of will need a manifold gauge set for air tools are would be cheaper to buy compressor - accumulator - orifice tube. take it to a good air conditioner mechanics.let him put parts on and pump down system.then charge it up.because buying tools to get ac going .is going to cost $475.00 thats the vacuum pump can buy a cheaper vacuum pump that works from air from a regular air compressor you pump tires up with.manifold gauge set causes from $100.00 up to $300.00 for a good set.another thing you have to be familiar with working on air conditioners you put too much R-134 in system you will damage compressor or get seriously hurt.
