99 Burb A/C compressor R&R
First post here..
I believe my AC compressor has gone out.. A week ago I tried giving the sytem a charge without any positive results.. Today I noticed the compressor clutch wouldn't engage.. I could jumper the switch at the accumulator (PS firewall/canister thing) and it would kick in.. Still no cold air..
I bought a gauge set.. Low pressure side was high and high pressure side was low.. Adding R134a didn't help anything.. Still no cold air.Does this sound like a bad compressor?
If so, are there any special tricks or procedures besides bolting in a new one and recharging? Should I replace any other parts while the system is open?

You will need a vacuum pump to evacuate air/moisture from the system. Receiver/dryer and the orifice tube are "must" replace items. Depending on your experience level you may want to leave this to the pros.There is no way to happiness....happiness is the way.:yipi:
