This isn't an air compressor problem but your problem is usually caused by a harmonic vibration caused by something that is rotating being out of balance. In your case, have the balance of all four wheels checked. If they are OK then you have to look at the brake drums or discs and/or bearings.
after you replaced the compressor,did you vacuum it down to remove any outside air in the system?(Better yet did you use Nitrogen to dry the system???)then vacuum down and then hold vacuum for at least 5 minutes per EPA specs? if the compressor kit isnt made for the unit(After-Market) within specs it will not last due to the tolerances of the old compressor with new part installed and will let in outside air enter and destroy the internal compressor components and leak out the new charge of R-134a refrigerant anyway
NEVER SEEN ONE MATE BUT IF IWAS THERE I WOULD WHIP THE STARTER MOTOR OFF AND THERE IS YOUR FLYWHEEL .BUT IFAIL TO SEE THE RELEVANCE TO THE HARMONIC BALANCER THAT IS AT THE OPPOSITE END OF THE ENGINE TO THE FLYWHEEL. COULD YOU ENLIGHTEN ME ?
I remove the nut by putting the proper size socket on a breaker bar and stabilize it against the frame somewhere. Turn the key ***Just far enough to BUMP the engine*** This will loosen the balancer nut enough that you can remove it. When putting it back on, make sure all the plugs are installed. Tighten it the best you can. It will clinch when you start it up.
You need a special puller sometimes called a clover. In any case you need a puller that will use the threaded holes on the inside wheel of the balancer. You can rent a nice one to avoid damge or you can take a bit of a chance and buy a cheap on for twenty bucks. Even a cheap one wil do a single pull. DO NOT use a claw type puller. The outside wheel of the balancer will come off! It doesn't go back on.
need a harmonic balancer puller.. Can be rented at some auto parts stores. Some will sell them.
It threads into the hub of the balancer and has a bolt in the center that is rotated to exert pressure on the crankshaft.
Each rotation of the bolt will create more force and move the balancer a little at a time until it is clear of the end of the crankshaft.
get the tires re- balanced they blue it plain and simple - it is one of the front ones that is still out of balance - This can happen once in a awhile. If it does not staighten out you have a broken belt in a new tire and this can happen as well. At any rate get everything documented - email mechanic advising of issue and book appointment as well document results . Do not stop documenting - in the event of broken belt it can take months to prove . cannot help with the cd.Good luck
