2005 Scion tC Question: a/c compressor
Its best not to jump to the conclusion that the air conditioning compressor itself has failed. When the air conditioning fails to work or work well, gauges need to be attached to the high and low side of the air conditioning system to verify what is happening. The compressor can be checked for clutch engagement and to see if it mechanically OK. The system may need to be evacuated, checked fro leaks, any leaks repaired, defective parts replaced the system flushed free of contaminants and the recharged with oil and refrigerant. It point less to guess without having initial diagnostic tests are done. A shop that specializes in air conditioning may end up being most cost efficient for you. - patrick mannion
