How to bypass ac pulley on 97 buick skylark 2.2 4cyl

According yo my investigating, the 4 cylinder option on that car was a 2.4L engine. If that is correct, then there is no direct option to bypass the A/C pulley with a shorter belt. However, Autozone has a bypass pulley that can be installed where the A/C compressor is to allow you to drive without A/C. Here is a link to the page....

1989 buick skylark ac blows warm with new freon

My guess would be, based on the age of the car, that the compressor is out of oil; meaning it doesn't work. It's not a simple matter of adding oil like to an engine.

Where is the low pressure air conditioning service port on a 1998 Buick Skylark?

Locate your AC compressor.
The low pressure service port is located on the back of the compressor where the high and low side connections bolt to the compressor.
Look on this line about 4 inches or so back on the line.

Hope this helps.. Best of Luck

Air conditioner pulley is too tight. Is there a way to bypass the air condtitioner?

yes they make ac compressor bypass pulleys, they replace the compressor which must be removed. You then can use a stock factory belt.

My 93 buick regal custom 3.8l has a bad ac pump and makes an aweful noise when running. The ac doesnt work and the 'clutch' on the pump spins freely, is this an easy fix or do i need a new ac pump?

you would need a new a/c pump, however you you didnt want to replace it and could live with out the a/c, a cheaper option is to replace the belt and bypass the a/c. Most auto parts store will sell you a belt of the correct dimensions if you tell them you wish to bypass the a/c. I've done this for many customers. It can be done on just about any motor.

Best of Luck.....

1995 Buick Skylark and the A/C clutch is stuck car wont start.

You answered your own question? Fix the compressor! What state are you in? Do you need A/C? if not, bypass the a/c and use a shorter belt, if it does not interfere with anything.
