Great . Hope you and your wife enjoy the cool a/c.No I am not engaging the compressor. Seems to be working and I can not thank you enough. My wife thanks you too. I tell everyone I talk to about cars how helpful this forum is. God Bless all of you and be safe. If something else comes up with this I will let everyone know.
Be careful replacing the expansion valve. Have a look at the link below.Just to keep you updated. I have disassembled to get to the expansion valve. Talked to Autohauz to try and get the correct Denso compressor to replace the Napa one. Seems like a issue with part numbers for the correct compressor. They were very helpful and hope to have it Mid-week. Will flush lines prior to replacing all.
It was taken to a garage to figure out what was wrong and to see what it would cost to fix.. They said compressor...This section too often runs into phobia with AC topics and even I did not read all the replies, how did you come to conclusion that compressor is bad?
From what I see - the proper troubleshooting procedure was never followed.
This is another of those "garbage in, garbage out" discussion.
