Identify and remove freon. Remove the failed compressor and transfer the brackets, sensors, manifolds and switches to the replacement unit. Clean components that are not being replaced. Replace the dryer or accumulator. Install the new compressor.
Was the proper amount fo oil installed in the compressor and accumulator when they were replaced? That is the reason ,I, as a repair shop owner will NOT use a remanufactured compressor.
right before the compressor
it is on the dryer canister right in front of the coolant overflow tank. It has an electrical connector with to wires on the top of it and it screws onto a port on the accumulator dryer.
An accumulator does just that...accumulates liquid refrigerant to keep from flooding the expansion valve or compressor. It can also be used as a muffler on compressor noise.
The system is very dirty from the first compressor that went out....... If you just replaced the a/c compressor without changing the expansion tube, the accumulator and flushing out the complete system then it will never work correctly......
That should cover it.
Hi, I have a 93 jeep grand Cherokee with 250,000 miles. I was quoted $650. 00 to have the compressor and dryer replaced. I did the labor(30min) and the shop recharged it for around $370. This also included the compressor, dryer and o ring kit. Thanks, Mo
Assuming that nothing has been changed you're not looking at the accumulator. The aluminum cylinder on the output side of the compressor is a muffler designed to prevent hammering from the compressor being audible in the passenger compartment.
More than likely the metal is coming from the compressor. Replace the compressor along with the accumulator/receiver dryer and orifice tube/expansion valve. It is difficult to flush all of the metal out of the system but you must try. Any metal left in the system will eventually destroy the new compressor.
Make sure your clutch is engaged on the compressor. you can usually do this with a metal paper clip in cycle switch, on the accumulator.
There is no such thing as and air-conditioner accumulator in an automobile. A nonworking air-conditioner compressor can cause a cooling malfunction.
