Default Back up to 2 Bonnevilles

The a/c went out in my 91 bonnie and my son was kind enough to go and buy back his former 94 bonnie at a steal. I am planning to sell my 91 and pay off some bills including what my son paid for the 94. I think I should be able to get $1500 for the 91 at least.

I live without A/C on my Bonnie, and my car is *black*. Shame to see that you're deciding to depart with your '91, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

$1500 sounds reasonable, maybe ask a little higher if putting in the classifieds?

my son is now trying to talk me into keeping both cars. I don't know what I will do yet. I do like my 91, she has been so good to me (other than the a/c problems)

Just being curious here...

What all has been replaced in the AC system?

I am on my original compressor, original condenser, original drier and evap core... Only thing I did was switch to 134a... But the Compressor is on its way out slowly...

When I do replace the compressor, I'll replace the Drier, and the orifice tube filter...

And I love the 91 SSE'*... Drool

Has the AC Compressor clutch relay ever been replaced?

I didn't see that mentioned anywhere...

I had my AC Compressor clutch relay go out 5 years ago, and I'd go start the car, turn on the AC and poof, nice and cool for a while... Then once the system would cycle off it wouldn't cycle the compressor back on... I later checked it with the scan tool and saw that the ECM was commanding the compressor clutch on, but nothing was happening... After I replaced the Relay switch for the compressor I never had another problem...

When you turn on the AC does the Compressor cycle on at all?

I'm thinking this is a simpler problem then it seems like..
