Almost all V-5 system failures I see are due to loss of refrigerant- then someone sees it is not cooling or pumping well and says--"it's the compressor" So- how much refrigeant was in the system when a/c performance went south? If that is unknown- then your compressor is probably okay- may need a shaft seal if built before Sept 2002.

The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......

Got a Norelco electric razor for 31 bucks last year, replacement blades are 30 bucks, but see where the price of that same shaver is now 35 bucks.

Compressors are even worse than shavers, if you can find all the parts you need, far more expensive than getting a remanufactured one with the latter having a warranty. Perfect example is just buying a clutch kit, for a few bucks more can get the compressor with it, with that same kit installed.

That is if the compressor is indeed your problem, noted for excessive clutch gap for one, or just the seal. Know a guy regardless of the fault, even a flat tire, always says its the computer.
