My AC was working just fine to the point where I could not run it at maximum in Ariozna, it would just freeze you out of there. I went to replace the oil pump cover gasket along with the front seal and other things. During this I happened to bump ever so slightly the line from the compressor to the condensor and it started hissing. I twisted the rubber on the line and it was worse, it twisted it the other way and it stopped. So I replaced that line which completely drained the system. I took it to the stealership this morning (could not believe they were cheaper using the TLCA discount) and they just called me and said my front seal on the compressor is leaking badly. I can not believe this just went bad suddenly. I asked about how much to replace the seal and they said basically you have to replace the entire compressor. I asked how they know it is leaking and they say they can see it all over which the freon is what was leaking all over and it did make a mess. Has anyone had this front seal leak suddenly to where it is wasted? I told them I will come pick it up because I am not buying a compressor from them. My money pit, gotta love the PO.
