You can buy a kit and charge it for $20.00... It will still blow air not as cold...

Air condition not works

The simple things to check: fuse and drive (fan) belt. With the engine running and the A/C set to on, open the hood and locate the the A/C compressor. The drive belt should be present and spinning the sheave on the compressor. With the A/C set to on, a built in solenoid couples the spinning sheave to the compressor's shaft. If only the outer sheave is spinning, the solenoid is not energized.

A missing drive belt would need to be replaced to work the A/C compressor. If missing altogether, could indicate a bigger problem (seized compressor, etc.). Installing a replacement belt is usually not that expensive.

An open, blown or missing A/C fuse in the car's fuse block can cause this, as could a defective solenoid (not a common occurrence) in the sheave or a low refrigerant charge level (pretty common problem). Only the fuse is something you can check easily. An automotive A/C mechanic will need to service the solenoid or recharge the refrigerant however. Be aware that a refrigerant system is designed to be sealed. If refrigerant has been lost, there's a leak. Small, slow leaks are acceptable, but you don't want to be spending $100 or more every season (or less) to recharge the system. Locating and repairing the leak will cost a little more money up front, but should save you from constantly recharging the system.

Good luck!

Mitsubishi air compressor seized up and belt broke. what to do

If you need the air conditioning you will probably have to replace the compressor.

If you dont need it you can just disconnect the connector on the compressor and leave it there to support the new belt..

My a/c compressor in my 1998 mitsubishi eclipse in seizing up and sticking causing my engine to lose power and cut off in drive and idle

I would suggest that you have the A/C pump replaced. In the mean time you can remove the A/C belt, even if it's the entire serpentine belt and replace it with a shorter one to eliminate the A/C Compressor. If you go to your local parts store and ask for a belt for that model car they will ask if it has air conditioning or not, tell them that it does but you want the belt for the non air conditioned model and a mounting diagram. This will leave you with no air but in a short while the compressor is going to burn that belt off anyway.

Air conditioner

The squeeling is the belt because the air compresor is likely seizing. At idle it can't turn the compressor, in motionthe compressor probably turns and cools the air. Most air conditioners come on when the defroster is on.

Almost every time we start the engine the belt squeals could it be the air conditioning compressor?

Check the belt tension for the alternator.Also check A/C compressor clutch for any damage or wear.Also check the auto belt tensioner for any seizing. MOE

Power steering stops when I turn on the air conditioning

YES. or the belt may be slipping. does the a/c work? if the belt is tight and the a/c does not work, then the a/c compressor is trying to sieze and will need replacement. if you dont need the a/c disconnect the wires to it.

Belt broke on compressor to air condition and compressor has locked up

Replace the compressor and belt. Make sure to put in enough of the proper type oil charge when recharging the system. Should probably have it professionally done if you don't have the tools or the expertice.

Air conditioning unit seized up and burt the belt.

Yoe will have to replace whatever seized up, if you want AC, If not, just unplug the wires into the unit. That will disable the clutch and the pulley will spin freely. You also need to replace the serpentine belt.

A/c compressor has a loose donut ring on the end of unit

You cant tieghten it up ,it has to be replaced or removed,the ring is part of the compresser clutch ,if you eliminate your a/c,just get a serpentine belt the same year car as yours but without air,but im pretty sure all corvettes have a/c could be wrong but i have had eight vets myself actually i have 87 now but ,what will happen is the compresser itself will eventually seize then you have bigger problems have you priced a clutch for your compresser,i dont think there all that exspensive,you dont have to change whole compresser ,Hope this helps
