First off I have checked the fuse. Is there some relay that goes bad to
make the compressor not work? I have already confirmed the compressor works
by running a jumper lead to the compressor itself. So now am I to believe
it only needs a charge? I dug out my old recharge kit from the 70-80's but
this time I will install R-134 instead. Does this sound about right? TIA
OK I now have it charged to 45# and the air feels good. One worry though I
now see some oily type oil stuff on the clutch in front of the compressor
and some even being flung around. Should I start worrying now?
PAG oil , it lubes the compressor . You should start worrying now . Means
the seal on the compressor is bad , probably why it lost the freon that was
in the system . Aincha glad winter is almost here ?
Not sure what's involved in replacing the seal , but I do know it takes a
special puller to get the clutch off and back on . Might be able to
rent/borrow one from AutoZone , or whatever major auto parts supplier is in
your area .
Good Luck !
