I replaced my A/C compressor about 6 months ago because the clutch was making a ringing noise, and the pressures were low.  It also leaked out over a 6 month period.  Replacing the compressor seems to have fixed all 3 problems.  A/C blows very cold and the compressor is quiet.  I used the Denso,


I'm strongly considering picking this Denso up and having the UAC replaced.  I'm afraid the UAC's bearings aren't getting oiled and it's going to seize, shred the belt and leave me stranded.  As well as fill the rest of the system with metal, which it could already be doing for all I know.


edit - The UAC is supposed to be pre-filled with oil though - perhaps it wasn't from the factory?  


Any update on this? I'm about to change out the compressor, drier, orifice on my car soon.  I ordered the Delphi compressor off of Rock Auto, along with the GM variable orifice for climates less then 105.  I'm in Miami, FL, so I'm certainly looking forward in having cold AC.

The first paragraph in your quote is me. The rest of it, not sure where that came from.

The Denso compressor blew cold air for me right through the summer. It still cycles on and off with my climate control in "Auto". I guess the test will be next summer.

The 2nd part is mine. Looks like the "close quote" tag got deleted after your part.
