How can I protect my car AC compressor?

  • keeping your car ac system properly refrigerant charged and with the right type of oil and  balanced.
  • Maintaining the A/C condenser free from debris
  • Replacing an A/C condenser with missing or bent fins.
  • Keeping the Cooling system performing at 100 % efficiency
  • Checking the Cooling system fan clutch or electric fans operating at 100 % efficiency
  • A/C refrigerant system free from air or other contaminations.

Protect Auto A/C compressor against lack of lubrication.

With a large refrigerant undercharge, oil is pumped out from the compressor and becomes trapped in the evaporator or other ac components of the system and is unable to properly return to the hvac compressor. The amount of oil in the compressor can get down to dangerously low levels creating excessive heat and, in most cases, leading to failure of the unit. Some Air conditioning tests has shown that with an undercharged ac system, the oil amount in the compressor was reduced by over 57%.

ac temperature out of the vents

How the a/c should be operating in order to cool down the interior of your car

Check inside the vehicle:

  • The A/C climate control should be set to Max Cold Position.
  • A/C Climate control set button On.
  • Recirculation/fresh air mode set to recirculate.
  • Engine temperature should be in the normal range (not overheating)
  • Outside ambient temperature should be sensing outside actual ambient temperature.(Ambient temperature should be above 37 F )
  • Engine RPM’s should in the normal everyday range.
  • With the A/C  blower on Max, the mass of air coming out from the vents should be strong.
  • Cabin air Filter should be clean.
  • A/C evaporator coil should be free from debris and leaks.

Check the engine compartment :

  • The front of the vehicle should be free from any road debris.
  • The radiator and A/C condenser should be free from leaves, bugs or dirt.
  • With the A/C system ON the radiator/condenser fan assembly should be operating.
  • The Drive belt should be running all the accessories and in good condition.
  • The A/C compressor CLUTCH should be engaged with A/C ON.
  • The A/C compressor ECV should be modulating the hvac compressor output for max cold.
  • All A/C lines and hoses should be free from dye, oil ,ice or damage.
  • The A/C system should be properly charged with exact amount of refrigerant specified by the manufacturer.
  • Hvac box drain tube should be draining water from underneath the vehicle.

Nissan vehicle interior. Sun load sensor.

How does the sun load sensor in my car work?

Varying amounts of exposure to sunlight will modify its electrical return signal to the programmer to adjust system output toward cooler air; less sunlight will cause the programmer to adjust system output toward warmer air. Some multizone climate control systems have more than one sun load sensor.

Auto A/C compressor, compression Test.

To check the auto a/c compressor compression ratio, note on paper the low and high side gauge readings and add atmospheric pressure to both readings. Divide the high side reading (with the atmospheric pressure added) by the low side reading (with the atmospheric pressure added).The result should be between 6.5:1 and 7.5:1. A compression ratio of 8:1 or higher may cause compressor failure. Learn More…

The A/C compressor is considered the heart of the refrigeration system. Compression ratio is the technical expression for pressure difference. Compression ratios are used to compare pumping conditions for a compressor and is an efficient way to evaluate the health of an air conditioning compressor.

Can i drive my car with a bad ac compressor

Can I drive my car with a bad A/C compressor?

Can I drive my car with a bad A/C compressor?

Driving the car with a locked up a/c compressor may damage the accessory drive belt. A bad compressor could affect the engine in your car. If your compressor’s pulley bearing goes bad, your engine can stall due to the stuck compressor or the serpentine belt may break affecting all the accessories moved by the serpentine belt.

Types of A/C compressors and compressor lock up.

Clutch-less variable displacement compressors have extra protection in case the compressor seizes. In the event a compressor failure occurs the bridges on the clutch assembly will break and only the pulley will keep running, allowing the engine to keep running.

Why does the compressor cycle on and off?

What causes a compressor to short cycle?

Low refrigerant charge causes rapid cycling. Drive belts and blower resistors do not affect compressor cycling. An excessive air gap may prevent the clutch from engaging.
