That was making the noise. If it does, then he will know it does not have an opening or leak in the system. Thanks again for your help. Fortunately, Nissan paid for the head gasket. I cut it like you did but still stripped it so I cut deeper and split the bolt head right off. I have not used the air cooling system since September 2014.
Why does the shop think its the compressor? You can ask a professional mechanic to help you find out what type your vehicle needs. Most refrigerants include a leak sealer that will seal small leaks in addition to filling the R134a refrigerant. If the air conditioning is not blowing cold air, then either the condenser fan is not coming on or the system is low on refrigerant. Incorrect refrigerant level, contaminated refrigerant, faulty expansion valve, defective compressor clutch, etc. It failed about a year and a half ago.
The usual causes of this situation are due to low coolant level, improper lubrication, or poor-quality types of refrigerant. Check the system and see if there is a refrigerant charge. The work was done at a Nissan dealership in September 2013. Your other option is to have the system evacuated at the shop and then you can work on it. Currently it does not blow any cold air so I thought it would be empty on R-134a but I guess that might not be true.
Remember, it is illegal to discharge refrigerant into the atmosphere. I will say it was previously owned by a rental car facility but the salesman at Wolfchase said there was 1 previous owner. More like 100+ previous owners individual renters. This will be my first and only Nissan. In May 2013, the air compressor was no longer working and the cooling system was blowing hot air. I know there is another part I need to change but cannot recall the name before I remove them and have the new system charged once complete.
The air went back out on March 17, 2015. This summer it is not working again. So, anyone done this and have thoughts and tips or a procedure to follow? Four Seasons is a leading automotive aftermarket supplier of air conditioning and cooling system parts. Why would a 2009 Nissan Altima need four air compressors during a 5-year period? Recommended I have coolant replaced. My first Nissan and no complaints until today. Thank goodness I was in the city and not out on some country road, stranded. Also needed a second person to keep it from rotating.
In September 2013, the air compressor stopped working and I had to have a third air compressor put into the car. Also the driver's side window does not work properly. I definitly have a major beef with my ac compresor the clutch makes that ticking sound everyonce in a while im just waiting for it to freeze up. I parked my car and turned the ac on so I can check exactly where it was coming from and my car shut off. My question is this, The first step in the part 2 video is to Take out connector and connect electric magnet.
When you discover that there's a leak, don't hesitate to purchase a new seal to replace the worn one. It's recommended that you run it for at least 10 minutes every month. When I did, I noticed what looks like a flat metal plate on the front of the pulley, slipping, then engaging and slipping again. My friend said its the clutch, fusses are and wiring are good told by merchants. So, when adding oil to the compressor, make sure that it's the right one for your vehicle. This will also lengthen its longevity. I do not think that the compressor froze up, but I really don't know.
Maintain proper levels of refrigerant gas. Before replacing the compressor, did you verify it's really dead? It was October 07 when that happened and I was in the process of moving from Atlanta to Denver. Valeo is a global company that engineers thermal, powertrain and other automotive systems with emission reduction and intuitive driving in mind. That is, unless, you know how to start their cars. .
In May 2013, the air compressor stopped working. I did have issues getting that dam bolt out. You'll need two people to do that. Its so far back I cant get at it with my hands. Uncomfortable ride , poor operation, suboptimal gasoline mileage, or threat of hardware break down are merely a few disadvantages of traveling with a damaged auto part. Visit a professional mechanic frequently.
