Question about 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan
Generally speaking, compressors fail because of lack of oil or lubrication. People go to Walmart and buy Freon and then add it to the system without any knowledge of what they have or the task they are about to perform. A/C systems are much more complicated then just adding freon! In fact, most of that store bought freon is loaded with harmful additives..........oil, leak sealer.....BAD FOR THE SYSTEM! The quantity and the correct oil is paramount to a properly working A/C system. Leak sealer will plug components! NO......NO.....NO!!
Changing out a compressor or for that fact any A/C component requires adjustment of the oil and also quantifying the quantity within the system..........too much or too little is detrimental to system failure!!!Dodge uses Santech compressors which are very good and if properly maintained, last a looooong time!!! You might want to consider finding a reputable A/C shop or private individual in the business that knows their business!!!

Ask the dealer this is 3rd time its going to replace it there must some factory defect which is causing this problem , please get the compressor with extended warranty say about 3 years, tell your facing this problem ,once fixed get it checked every 3 months which helps keep a long life of the compressor and reduce the burden to you for maintainance of the car................
