Question AC Compressor

Just wondering if anyone else has had issues with the compressor. My went out and I had it replaced. It took about 6 tries to get a compressor that would keep working. My mechanic really blasted the parts place over the last defective one.

Default Re: AC Compressor

Is this the same mechanic that said maybe it was low compression that was causing your car not to start?
Get another one - mechanic, that is.
Was he buying rebuilt compressors?
There is no above average problem with the A/C compressors in PTs.

Not the same one that told me compresssion problems that was one of the techs at Firestone

Edward was ordering them from a company...Repair ran $920...and the re-fixes were free

I think the replacements were bad...I hear the last time he let the guy have it when he called him. Rocky is one of the best mechanics in the area ...lots of folks use him...
