Different signs of a failing car AC compressor

 As summer draws near, it’s becoming more important to make sure your car’s air conditioning is in working order. However, issues with an A/C compressor aren’t uncommon. Like most issues with your car, the earlier you intervene, the simpler the repairs.

Be on the lookout for signs that your car’s A/C compressor is going bad before it fails. After all, no one likes a hot car in the summer. 

Unusual Sounds

Unsurprisingly, strange sounds are often an indicator of something going wrong within your car. If you turn on your vehicle’s A/C and are met with a grinding or a whining noise, this is a red flag. These noises occur due to internal components going bad—it could all be caused by the bearing, for instance. 

Hot Air

If you were expecting a cool blast and got hot air instead, your A/C compressor could be failing. If you haven’t been diligently maintaining your car’s air conditioning system, then this is likely the case. Take this as a warning sign before the compressor dies fully. 

Fluid Leaks

Your car’s A/C system contains internal bearings, which work to keep refrigerant within the compressor. Then, the compressor must pressurize the refrigerant to cool it down. Over time, this process can wear down the bearings due to being trapped in a constantly pressurized environment. When bearings are worn or damaged, they’ll begin leaking refrigerant.

Delaying to pick up after the compressor cuts 

An ac compressor is equipped with a thermostat, to help regulating the cooling temperature, or to maintain a certain cooling comfort. when the compressor works to this temperature, the thermostat, will stop it untill the inside of the vehicle is about to warm up above the thermostat regulating temperature, then the compressor starts working again. This cutting and cooling lasts between 30 seconds to an hour.

Some automatic compressor have sensors built in, instead of triggering clutches as seen in manual compressors, which will work to keep the cooling back after the thermostat stops the compressor.

When this sensor  starts failing, you'll start experiencing a delaying in the cooling after the compressor cuts.

If you're using a manual compressor, adjusting the thermostat or  just replace it for a few bucks will solve the problem

For an automatic compressor, the best solution is to replace the compressor.  

As soon as you notice signs of air conditioner compressor failure, it’s important to contact an experienced car repair service. Especially as we head into the summer months, a broken car A/C can be more than just a small inconvenience. Plus, it’s best to handle the issue before it grows more serious. Contact the A/C repair experts at dreamland motors  to get started.
