Kinda looks like it might leak. Oil got on it from somewhere. Maybe some was spilled, or leaked onto it from something else, but I wouldn't count on it to not leak.
It does look like a leak. Compressors, condensers and underwear are all things I never buy used if new is available.
well, today i got it charged, it held vacuum , and the machine they used said its o.k. It blows cold . but now everytime the compressor engages/disengages it makes squeaking sound. what it might be? Loose belt or some clutch problem?
From the info you posted, could be belt, compressor, clutch, overcharge
Excessive high side pressure increases compressor torque, putting stress on the belt and clutch. So, what were the pressures?
What model of car? Did you replace anything besides the condenser?
I updated first post with info of my car. well, my car didnt have the ac. i bought the whole a/c and put it into my car. But the condenser was shot it was from crashed car by the looks of it. so i bought this used one. Today i got it charged and everything was fine for like 2hours but then it started squealing when engagin/disengaging. Blows cold when clutch engages, then it disengages and starts to blow warmer then engages and again cold. It does this every 5minutes. Condenser fan runs all the time. i dont have the gauges to look at pressures. so i think you cant help me without pressures right ?
If the parts car had been sitting around with a broken condenser, you likely have major water contamination.
Also the amount of oil is a critical factor.
