Air Conditioning problem
2001 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 105000 miles
The car's a/c compressor seizes during operation intermittently causing the serpentine belt to stop, the car to jerk, and then the compressor kicks back in and the spindle continues turning--the car running smoothly for awhile until the problem repeats a short while later, sometimes longer.
The Compressor and related parts are new as of yesterday, and the a/c need not be on for this problem to occur.
Is there a switch or control mechanism in the transmission that would cause this, as I have been told by one mechanic? I have already spent over 1200.00 in diagnosis and repairs.
