Compressor finally quit after 159K. Could an A/C guru please educate me as to what all is involved with installation of a new one ? I'd like to get a couple of quotes from some local shops and do not want to get burned, or, if I can, replace it myself.
You could replace the compressor yourself, it's not a bad job, but if the system is still fully charged you'll have to have it evacuated before you unhook the manifold at the compressor. Then, unless you have access to a vacuum pump and gauges you'll have to take it some where to have a good vacuum pulled on the system and recharged after you replace the compressor.
