Well my AC wasn't recharged when the local shop installed my inlets while my trans was out. Went back the next day they recharged the system. Two months go by and then last week Friday my AC went out again. Fans work, buttons work, just blows hot air. I took it in today as they were busy and it's my daily so I couldn't drop it off at night or early morning. 

 

They say my AC compressor is out. Quoted $1400 on the part and $450 on the labor to install it and recharge the system again. Any chance I can do this myself or would it need to be in a vacuum?

 

Is there any aftermarket support on this? I found the OEM part number 92600-JF00C for $1350 on CourtesyParts and some others. Thoughts?

 

Or does anyone know of a used one? Couldn't find any on ebay.

 

Thanks!

Check with some of the big shops, if I’m correct the early front mounts removed the AC - might get lucky at an ETS/AMS, etc.

My A/C compressor locked-up last week.  Clutch, compressor, receiver drier, and belt will have to be replaced.  $3,700 covered by extended warranty.  2014 with 25,xxx miles.  Shameful for a compressor to take a shit after so few miles.

1999 Ford Taurus SE with the fancy climate control in the car. If I jump the connector on the AC Drier/Accumulator the clutch on the compressor engages but there is no cold air in the cabin after letting it run for a bit. What else can I check to see where the problem might be? Thanks -Chris

Honestly this is your best hope I had the same thing happen, T1 was able to hook me up with used compressor for 1/2 that you we’re quoted

It is shocking the cost of a compressor for this car...GTR tax I would imagine. If you get a major failure, you really need to replace the drier, If you are DIYing the compressor, you will need to evacuate the system before charging. You can take it to an A/C shop to do that or buy a vacuum pump from Harbor Freight, $120 or so, and do it yourself. Good idea to have gauges as well.

Hmmm.... I am having a different issue.  My AC works, then stops blowing cold air and only blows warm air.  Not all the time, but it's happening more frequently.  Any ideas what it might be?  Sorry to jack the thread, OP.

Sounds like low on refrigerant. Put a can in. If that doesn’t work I’d bleed it and start there.

I have this EXACT same problem. It seems to be worse (AC stops blowing cold air) when the outside air temp goes above 90 degrees. It's hit or miss. When it works it's perfectly cold air. It works intermittently and very randomly.

If it’s like any other AC system, the clutch engagement is impacted by fluid levels.

If your sitting in car, can you hear clutch engage and no heat or no clicking sound ?

Really hard to tell because of the exhaust and road noise.
Another interesting fact, when my foot is off the gas pedal or when I am stopped and idling the AC will always blow cold. When it is acting up is will stop blowing cold air the moment I get on the gas pedal. Now, the other 60% of the time everything works normally.

Just me thinking out loud but just wonder if your WOT switch for the A/c is acting up?

I have smoked a lot today and if I’m wrong I apologize

Maybe Tim! I never thought of that!

I think what is going to solve my problem is to go to the famous Chris Heimburg GTR tech and have him do a full AC diagnostic. He's only 20 miles from me.

Keep in mind, sometimes people have their most brilliant revelations while smoking the greens! Haha
