Strange Noise

GCKIRK on Sun March 22, 2009 9:27 AM User is offline

Year: 2000
Make: Voltswagon
Model: New Beetle
Engine Size: 2.0L
Refrigerant Type: 134a

I bought a 2000 beetle for my daughter, and the air was working fine, but the pulley was making a terrible noise. So i after getting a quote on how much would cost to fix i would fix it. Now i don,t know to much about aircondition systems, but the guy I give a ride to work works at the shop I got the quote from told me if I got the compressor and installed it would vacuum it and charge it for me. All went well, now here is the problem the thermometer you put in vent well go down to 42 degrees for short period and the go between 42 and 65 degrees and sometimes it will make a vibrating sound, sometimes louder than others. I was told to let run for a day or so to let the pressure balance out and that should quit. I was just try to get some insite from someone other than my one source

I've never had to let a system run a day or so to balance out a system. Sounds like you're getting some odd advice.


When considering your next auto A/C purchase, please consider the site that supports you:

Did you change the drier and expansion valve?? Add the proper amount of oil back to the system, not add to much oil back to the system? I would remove, drain the compressor, change drier and expansion valve add back the system amount of oil, pull a long vacuum and recharge to system amount with virgin R134a. You didn't add sealer or anything did you?
