Question about 1993 Saturn SW2
The air compressor pulley squeels when the A/C is turned on. Do I have to replace the whole compressor or can that pulley be replaced. If the pully only can be replaced, does the refrigerant have to be discharged.
A general rule of thumb is that if you have a bad a/c clutch you should replace the whole a/c compressor. it has been my experience that usually when you replace the clutch only a short time later the compressor fails because the seals get worn from the malfuntioning clutch and you lose the refrigerant and you have a locked up compressor. if you have a 134a system the whole pump should only cost about 130-165 dollars for a sanden style pump. the clutch alone cost half of that and maybe more. hope this helps. by the way when you open the system make sure that you replace the dryer moister will get in when you open the system and it will plug the dryer. when fully charged the system should read 35 psi on the low side and 130-150 on high side. also power wash the condenssor which is mounted on the front of the radiator this will allow the outside air to flow more freely through the coils and fins and make your a/c run more efficiently. please rate this solution......thanks
