AC Compressor

Pretty sure mine has pooped out on me, just getting air that isn't cooled.

How tough are one of these to replace ?

Before you spend money on parts, figure out what the problem is. It could be something as simple as being low on freon, a blown O-ring, or an electrical problem. Have the system checked first.

Yeah get the system checked, it could be low on R-134A. If the compressor is shot then you'll have to recover ALL the R-134A before even cracking a seal on the A/C system.

I added Freon, and it was ok. a little low but it didnt solve my problem. My Fan clutch was needing to be replaced, would that be the problem ? Though I would expect SOME cold air to come inside still. My truck's A/C also took time to get really cold at low RPM, I would basically have to be moving to keep it nice and cold. (This was all due to the fan clutch I assumed)


I already have the new fan clutch too...

i would check the lines and the orifice tube before going out and putting all these parts in that could be fine in the first place
