A question for all you AC pros.
My 2000 Durango AC system has a slow leak. It is the manifold hose leaking. Since the car has 140000 miles on it, I live in Phoenix where the AC is run in 110deg heat every summer, and I am going to have the system open anyway, I was wondering if I should replace the compressor. It has not seized, the pressures were OK last year after I added freon, but the low RPM cooling performance is marginal. I'm not sure if that is due to poor system design, high ambient heat, a worn compressor, or a combination of them. Do compressors just plain wear out?
Drain the oil. Add back fresh oil. Same amount plus .5 ounces. New drier and repairt your leaks.
Likely AMA could repair your manifold hose, or get or make a replacement.
