Greetings all...New member and would like some direction in the purchase of a replacement compressor for my 92 metro. Original is NipoDenso and it siezed last week. Looking for a replacement locally and autozone and Advance Auto both have it seems the same reman....4 seasons brand name..Price is around $275.00 which is fine, but could not find a new replacement...So, if I am to put a reman on the car,,,any thoughts on these compressors....I did find a gent in local area that says he can rebuild the old one for around $150.00...Heavy Spanish accent so I am not sure if I can ask him the questions about what he does when he "rebuilds" them....After removing the old compressor, I flushed the system and did not get any "stuff" out,,,just clean flush came out when I used my air to blow the flush out...removed the lines and did all seperate...I put air in the low side line into the evap box and got a little oil but no "old compressor" out...Hoping I am able to hang a new dryer and compressor...add the oil and evac the system....I do have the pump and gauges...thoughts from the pros? Buy the reman or give my old one to "Gustavo" and let him have at it...

$205 from this board's sponsor, and not junk rebuilt like you've seen. You only want to do the job once, so do it right.

I've been running AMA rebilt compressor in my '88 Mazda B2200 for aabout seven years (Arizona).
