Looking to replace my leaking A6 compressor(front seal), with either an S6 or Pro6ten aftermarket direct replacement. When I replace the compressor should I also change my POA/STV for the new cycling style of POA. My system has(had) R12 and worked great until the front seal let go. I received great information and guidance when I was getting this A/C system assembled/running last year, just want to know your opinions on the A6 replacement compressors( which has the least known problems, I realize I asked a preference last year but didn't know if any recent problems have arisen with the use of either of the newer compressors) and if my POA/STV needs changing. I will be recharging the system with R12. Thank you in advance. Todd
Why not just replace the front seal?
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......
Do not convert to a cycling system unless your POA valve is faulty and you can't find a replacement. A properly working POA system is much better than those conversions. Only the people selling them call it an "update".
