I recently went to my mechanic in fitzroy to have my Air Con compressor replaced.
It was making a rapid knocking noise emanating from the compressor, verified and went away when compressor was turned off.
Was not interested in new baring or trouble shooting so opted for the compressor to be replaced and covered by a warranty.
So Aircon Compressor replaced, Gassed and all belt tensions ok and was working for a short while.
Other things done to the car for other reasons
front rotors (The incorrect ones! May I add the back one were supposed to be done)
New Aircon does not blow any cold air anymore.
I first noticed a slow knocking noise whilst accelerating above 2000RPM in drive, coming from either the LPG gas fuel converter or the Aircon location. The converter and the Aircon Gas line are side by side under the hood.
The the mecanid said "Drive it more and harder, the noise will go away"
Sure enough one of the noises went away, however so did my Aircon, it appears I have no refrigerant left, the aircon still works and can be turned on and off and pumps what little gas is left but the gas line is now as warm or little cooler then ambient temp when it used to be cold as ice and dripping with condensation.
So there is no gas or the compressor is not compressing. ANOYING to say the lease. I had a look and there while the car was running and there was a little green frothand stain around the re-gas port and plastic cap.
My thoughts are that either when the compressor was replaced and regressed that the Gas line has been damaged or the re-gas port valve where it was frothing has been damaged.
What are your thoughts?
have the same problem?
