View Full Version : no AC.......

Just had my car serviced, And the mechanic says that my AC compressor is gone and about 800$ to fix.. Is that a bit fishy or sound right. Is there a way to chk it myself, prove its the compressor and not just a freeone leak..

ps. Maybe spend the money on tint.

well you could ask to see the compressor when it's off the car.
You should see metal shavings in the compressor and the lines.
If the compressor is not fully locked up.Did you ask your service
advisor what made the compressor go bad. Also if you see metal
shavings you need to have the whole system flushed so that you
will not have a problem in a year or two.800 $ sounds about right
