Air conditioning repair
I have a 2002 Suburban LT with about 130k on it. About a year ago I had the condenser, drier and orifice tube replaced, and now the compressor is going out. My question is, since I replaced the drier and orifice tube last time, do I need to replace them again? The compressor hasn't failed completely yet, but it will soon. It is losing a bearing, and makes a loud screeching noise when the AC is on and the engine is under load.

They say that anytime the system is cracked open, especially for a compressor replacement you should replace the drier/receiver. They're only about $25.Current Rides: |99 Chevy Suburban- the family truckster |93 Lincoln Town Car- 250K miles & still churning -now a fan of the Panther platform

I do a lot of repairs on Class 8 truck a/c's. I always replace the drier or condenser to keep the system dry. Water is an a/c system's worst enemy. It creates acids which attack metallic surfaces inside the system. Cheap insurance. Prevents come-backs.
