AC compressor on my FIL's GMC Sonoma pickup (2.2 litre) started making noise
weeks ago. Still cools.
I thought I might be lucky, and it would just be a compressor clutch.
Not so..The compressor has an internal problem, and would (in a normal
need to be replaced.
Quoted cost is about $1000. The compressor is easily half that amount.
I feel, once again, that GM is manipulating the situation such that any fool
buys one of these pieces of crap gets stung.
There is no reason that such a rare and exotic compressor need be used in
truck. Dont talk economy, as this gutless little 2.2 litre POS doesnt get
more than about
17 mpg on its best days.
We just wont repair this one.
