So the shop says I need a new evaporator assembly and it'll cost over ***
It's my third vehicle, so I'm thinking of just going without A/C.
It's a 96 Grand Caravan w/3.3L engine, 82k miles
Would I save mileage if I permanently removed the compressor, or is there any
other reason why I *should*
remove it (like it'll burn out/seize or something
if it's never used)?
How many mpg improvement would I expect?
Any ill side affects of removing it?
Can I just get a smaller belt and bypass the compressor (i.e., leave the
compressor where it is), or will I have to remove it and put in some sort of
pulley to keep the geometry of the belt similar?
Thanks for your help,
