Replace the entire system with a more efficient one. Current EPA guidelines call for a 13 SEER system. Cost will be approx 6500-8500 depending on geographical location, size of system, and current copper size. Disagree. The evap coil may need replacement. I don't know any AC mechs that repair them but if the leak can be found it is not a large problem. 5-6 hundred dollars either way. For the price quoted aove I think you can get a 16-18 seer replacement unit.

If relocating a home AC compressor-condenser unit how far from the evaporator can it be and could the condenser be remote from the compressor?

in a typical residential split system, the condenser fan is cooling the compressor so i wouldn't expect the same useful life from the compressor if it were not being cooled. you could set up its own fan i suppose. you can separate the evaporator and condenser about 25' (50' total line circuit) off the shelf. farther than that, the manufacturer usually has a larger line set (diameters) to keep the same performance rating. you also get into oil drainback issues, i.e. you have to pay attention in sloping the lineset to drain oil back to the compressor.

What is the typical cost to have a repair shop replace the water pump on a 97 Grand Am GT?

Depends on where you live. One suggestion is to replace all belts and coolant hoses at this time. You also want to have the cooling system flushed and fresh coolant added. The system will have to be drained and refilled when replacing a pump and doing all the other repairs at this time will save you money down the road. They need replacing anyway unless it has been done before.
