I need a a/c compressor!

Hey guys, I think my ac compressor is shot. I bought a rebuilt one last year and regretted it ever since. Not only does it make noise when it kicks on, it also doesnt cool very well when the temp outside goes above 80. My buddy checked the freon and said it was full, no leaks. thats a good sign.

So should I replace the whole compressor or should I look into buying replacement parts for it such as a a/c clutch or something like that?


thanx!
Bekim

Did your replace the dryer and oriface at the same time as the compressor? Not doing so can lead to some issues. What did you use to vacuum it? Are you sure you got all the moisture out?

Hmm if you end up needing replacement parts try jeepair.com. I just got a new compressor, oriface and dryer shipped for 250 or 350. I cant remember the exact number but it was a good deal and works great.

You didnt say how you got the moisture out?

Hey thanx for the input guys! When my old compressor blew up last summer I had it changed as well as the reciever drier at the same time. When everything was put back together, we vacuumed the system and then filled it up with freon. It worked great! About 2 months before I replaced the ac compressor and reciever drier I did a complete ac overhaul. I replaced the evap, condensor, reciver drier, heater core, and ac lines. And i fixed that mystory condensation leak on the pass floor. Its got to be that ac compressor! Rebuilt sh*t doesnt work! Buy new and sleep better at night!

thanx

Just because i saw a recent thread on it.. you did add the proper amount of oil back in before closing up the system and refilling with 134a right? Just thinking that might contribute to a loud compressor..

Any warranty on the rebuilt compressor?
