I looking to replace my compressor and are wondering what parts should I buy. do i need the compressor with the clutch?
In order to have the new compressor warrantied, you will also need a new receiver drier, and it would be smart to change your orifice tube. Once you take the orifice tube out, if it is extremely black and grundgy, you should take the lines off and the condenser so that you can flush out the entire system. Then when it is all cleaned and put back together, run a vacuum pump on it, to get rid of any condensation in the system, then your next step is the freon.
