I know I will need someone to claim the freon from the existing compressor and receiver? He also knows that the car is a piece of crap to say the least. On March 15, 2015 the air cooling system was blowing out hot air when I turned it on. The life of a Nissan Altima air compressor appears to be a couple of months but definitely less than a year. Guess what, they were right, the air lasted one day. The work was done at a Nissan dealership in September 2013. This video will help you to rectify the situation yourself at home without having to pay half of your monthly salary to a mechanic. 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.
Anyway, if the system is empty, then you can go ahead and open it up and replace the compressor. My friend said its the clutch, fusses are and wiring are good told by merchants. I've looked this up and saw I'm not the only one with this issue. The car had about 60,000 miles at that time. When I did, I noticed what looks like a flat metal plate on the front of the pulley, slipping, then engaging and slipping again. Four Seasons is a leading automotive aftermarket supplier of air conditioning and cooling system parts.
I will say it was previously owned by a rental car facility but the salesman at Wolfchase said there was 1 previous owner. I took it to a mechanic so they can see what is going on with the car and they tell me I need a new ac compressor. Magnetic part of the compressor doesn't work. The car is less than 5 years old. I tried a search, but came up empty. Sometimes it works right off the bat, other times it takes 20 minutes to kick in.
They said the air may last one day or it may last the entire summer. It failed about a year and a half ago. Do it on your own risk. I'm totally pissed at 2 major repair jobs on a car less than 5 years old and as much as I live the Nissan brand I'm seriously considering never driving one again. This information is not guaranteed to be accurate.
Why not give it a try. Its so far back I cant get at it with my hands. Nissan knew it was a problem but did not issue a recall. How the heck do I get the connector off of the compressor? This is my 3rd Nissan, the first two I purchased brand new and this one I purchased used. If it is, then you will have to take it to a shop that has the proper equipment to drain and reclaim the freon it's not really freon anymore, but I can't remember what they use now. Thanks again for your help.
It was October 07 when that happened and I was in the process of moving from Atlanta to Denver. I don't know if this is available in your area, but a few years ago I found a guy that had a portable reclaim system in his van, and he would do the draining and recharging at curbside. I took it to a shop who I have a decent amount of trust in and they told me that it was the clutch, but that I would have to replace the entire compressor to repair. He knows it isn't normal for a compressor to stop working on a less than 5 year old car. Recommended I have coolant replaced. After that you'll have to leak test the system and recharge it. The car came with an air compressor.
First thing that comes to mind is to determine if the system is still charged or not. You should also replace the compression o-rings where the lines connect to the compressor. I will trade it in before the end of the summer, even though it has only 80000 kms. 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.
I'm so happy I ran across this site and your issues. You'll need two people to do that. This summer it is not working again. Only had 42k on my Altima when ac quit working. As a preventive strategy, it is a good idea to often take care of your automobile in before and after drives. I went to a Nissan dealership on March 16, 2015.
The rental facility put 30k miles on the car so I was misinformed of the 1 previous owner. I would appreciate it so much if you could explain how you got the connector loose. I went ahead and replaced the belt while I was in there. The extended warranty does not want to cover it because they believe it's just the ac compressor clutch that needs to be replaced. I have not used the air cooling system since September 2014. The mechanic explained to me there are a lot of Nissans with the same issues. When I went to turn it on on March 15, 2015, the air compressor was not working and was blowing out hot air.
