What is the AC Compressor all about?

An AC system has many components: compressor, condenser, receiver dryer, evaporator, and hoses. The compressor, the “heart” of the car’s air conditioning system works like a pump taking refrigerant, (R-12 in older cars, R-134a in 1995 and newer cars) and pressurizing it, passing it along to the evaporator.

The AC compressor has several moving parts (including pistons and valves). These internal parts can fail, causing the AC compressor to stop working. It is common for the internal parts of the compressor to come apart and disperse metallic debris throughout the system. Consequently, it is a requirement to replace the orifice tube and the receiver dryer when replacing the compressor since some of the debris may have ended up there.

For an AC compressor to work, it needs a clutch, bearing, and an electrical connector. The clutch is driven by a drive/serpentine belt, which engages the compressor when you switch on the AC. The clutch can burn or the bearing can fail. If the bearing or clutch have failed, it is recommended that the compressor be replaced. Sometimes replacing the entire compressor with a remanufactured one can be cheaper than replacing an individual clutch or bearings.

It is also common for the seals in the AC compressor to go bad. The compressor may start leaking refrigerant and/or the AC oil. If the seals no longer hold, you will need a new compressor, as the seals cannot be replaced. A compressor may also fail if there is sludge or debris in the air conditioning system. If there is sludge or debris, the hoses, evaporator, and condenser should be flushed to get rid of the contaminants. When it is not possible to flush the parts, you may need to replace those parts.

Keep in mind:

This service comes with receiver dryer and orifice tube. It is very common for metals from the compressors to go throughout the system and get caught in different components. If the compressor is replaced without the dryer and the orifice tube, it will ruin the new compressor and it will not be covered by the warranty from parts manufacturers.

How it's done:

  • Check for pressure in the AC system.
  • Check for power and ground at the compressor.
  • If compressor is found to be faulty, remove all of the refrigerant.
  • Remove the compressor, receiver drier, orifice tube, and/or expansion valve.
  • Flush all foreign materials from the AC System.
  • Install new compressor, receiver drier, and orifice tube.
  • Evacuate and recharge the AC system.
  • Leak check for any system leaks.
  • Check for proper operation of AC system.

Our recommendation:

The most common reason for an AC compressor to fail is leaky seals and inadequate lubrication. It is good practice to turn the AC on periodically so that the seals don’t dry up and stay lubricated. If you notice a change in the temperature of the air through the AC vents (not as cold as it should be), get it inspected.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the AC Compressor?

  • No cold air from the vents.
  • Clicking sound from under the engine.
  • AC not working.

How important is this service?

In addition to your comfort, air conditioning systems add value to your vehicle. You should keep your AC fully operational. In some systems, the hot and cold air are blended to achieve the desired temperature setting. In these cases, when the AC system fails, you will not only NOT get any cold air, but the entire temperature regulation is thrown off.

Research on AC Compressor for Jeep Liberty

Most car owners don't think about the hundreds of components that work together to ensure they have a comfortable ride. Jeep Liberty AC compressor is one such part that is an invaluable accessory in the Jeep to make rides smooth and comfortable during the hot summer months.

Function of the Jeep Liberty AC Compressor

Jeep air condition A/C compressor is responsible for compressing the refrigerant and then sending it to the air condenser present in the vehicle. This process is powered by the drive belt of the engine. In the condenser, the liquid refrigerant is subjected to high pressure, which converts into gas, which is then moved into tubes where the heat is removed quickly, causing it to cool down. This cooled gas is responsible for cooling the air inside the cabin.

As the gas loses its coolness, it changes back to liquid and the whole process starts all over again to ensure you have continuous cool cabin air.

Can the AC Compressor Stop Functioning?

Yes, your Jeep Liberty's AC compressor can develop issues. There are several factors that come into play. The age of the vehicle is the most common reason for AC compressor failure. However, it has been observed that 2002 Jeep Liberty AC compressor is more prone to failure. The reason for this is not known as yet.

While AC compressors in Jeep Liberty are very reliable and major issues are quite rare, the compressor or parts of the system may malfunction with regular wear and tear and improper maintenance. This can affect the cooling of the cabin air.

AC system not emitting cold air or there is minimal cooling

If you notice that the air conditioning system in your Jeep Liberty is not cooling the cabin or is putting out minimal cool air, the problem could be with the AC compressor. It could be broken or malfunctioning. This could necessitate a Jeep Liberty AC compressor replacement. However, let a qualified mechanic handle it as the compressor functions at high pressure and requires specialized tools to repair or replace it.

Jeep Liberty AC compressor not engaging

If you have the knowledge, check the fuse box under the hood. Swap the AC relay with another relay. Turn on the engine and switch on the AC to check whether or not the compressor engages. If it does not, use a voltmeter to check the power in the compressor. You need to perform this with the engine and AC running. So, do it with care.

The voltmeter should read 12v. If it does and the compressor still doesn't come on, you may have a faulty compressor clutch. On the other hand, if the power is less than 12v, the level of the refrigerant could be running low and would need to be replenished.

Jeep Liberty AC compressor making loud noises while turned on

If hear squealing noises while the AC compressor is engaged, it could be due to loose belts or pulley misalignment. You should get the belts checked and if needed, replace them before they break. The mechanic can easily realign the pulley. If nothing works, it may be prudent to opt for an AC compressor replacement.

2007 Jeep Liberty - A/C Compressor

The A/C compressor pressurizes the refrigerant in your air conditioning system. This pressure pushes the refrigerant through the rest of the system. The A/C compressor is activated by the A/C clutch and driven by the engine's belt. Over time, you may notice your A/C not performing as it should. If you hear squeaking or squealing sounds from the compressor or notice that your air conditioning isn’t blowing cold, check your A/C compressor. You may also be low on refrigerant, or the clutch may not be engaging as it should. When you’re ready to make your A/C system repair, visit O’Reilly Auto Parts. We carry A/C compressors, expansion devices, evaporator cores, and more for most cars, trucks, and SUVs.

AC compressor replacement.

I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty CRD, that I purchased about three months ago.

It's hot out, and I'm trying to keep my cool, but... when I turn the AC on, something smells like it is burning under the hood.

The AC blows out cold air, and the compressor clutch is engaging -but it keeps engaging/disengaging every few seconds.

I see no residue around the compressor moving parts -meaning no melted plastic or grease from bearings, etc.

My guess is the coil is somehow melting/burning -maybe the bearings are bad, or the coil "died", or the compressor itself is "bad", or….?

I first tried a $7.99 R134A cheapo charge (I gave it a 5% chance of fixing the problem) -thinking it was low refrigerant (it was a little, but not much). This recharge didn't fix anything (of course)…

I see two options:

1. Replace the compressor -downside is I need to evacuate the AC system, recharge, etc.

2. Get a repair kit (clutch, coil, etc.) -downside is if the compressor is the problem, this will not fix.

I'm leaning towards (1), since I want to fix it once, and not again.

The 3.7L gasoline looks fairly easy to replace (compressor is right on top, near passenger side).

Mine is the 2.8L diesel - I looked around under the hood, expecting the compressor to be on top somewhere, but it's buried down under the engine towards the driver side.

Is this major surgery just to replace the compressor…?

Has anyone done this, and what thing(s) do I need to remove (at a minimum) to get at/replace the compressor?

Should I attempt this from the top, or from underneath?
