Re: Forum

The software update is complete. I few other issues addressed. This will probably be the last update. The site is costing a fair amount of money to keep going. But we are good for now. Enjoy.

Re: Another Ford Ranger AC Issue

Also where I currently reside, only Genuine Fan clutch assemblies are available (fan blade & clutch) & they'll set you back $1200. The viscous fan couplings have been available from time to time but they aren't too good quality wise. Oh, my :o A price of $1,200 would give me pause as well. ...

Re: Damages caused by failed A/C compressor

I'd get a second opinion. But do so making sure of these paramotors. Check pressures at idle and 1500rpm. Check the system for leaks. May also need to reclaim refrigerant and charge back to OE spec and repeat this process by comparing both pressure readings. As for contamination, a good shop can rep...

The short answer to when it should fail cannot be answered. No one can tell, and so any variables on the owner's side out weight those of a shop. Shop: Was working fine when it left. Owner: 1.5 years later, complains of performance issues. Was it serviced each year to ensure no leaks or issues? What...

Re: Damages caused by failed A/C compressor

I would not be so quick to blame the shop. 1.5 years down the road, there is a problem. We have no idea of the true nature of the failure! If the shop had the ability to respond. We might have a different picture. But to answer the question. In general A/C compressors come with a 1-year warranty. Th...

GM A6 Double lip seals.

Little information from our remanufacture. All their A6 compressors come with a double lip seal. Any play in the compressor shaft will damage the seals and cause leaks. They said you might get away if a small amount of play with a ceramic carbon seal. We just removed the hubs from both our vendor's ...
