Anyone have a Chevy parts hook up?

I can't take the AC unit squealing anymore. Parts store is 250.00 refirb and 400.00 new. The fucken thing works but it sounds god awefull for the last 5000 miles and my funds are low.

Anyone got a hook up for discounts?

It has been a few years since I worked there, but Pep Boys allowed back alley mechanics to set up a mechanics account, allowing them 20-50% off of parts. They did not have to show a buisness license or tax id number. Give your local shop a call. Hope it helps.

you need a whole compressor, or just the clutch?

It's probably just the clutch Ken, but, they likely only sell the clutch connected to a new compressor. If I had the clutch in hand at work I could try to match something up in the aftermarket, but I doubt it would be a fruitful search.

They don't sell parts of parts anymore, because there are no mechanics left that can repair things. They can change parts.

I know there are still good mechanics out there.

Just sayin'

Besides, if you save $100 on a parts, and you have to pay for another two hours of labor, you obviously aren't saving anything.

I know people still work on their own stuff, but these huge parts manufacturers aren't marketing to those types for the most part.

this van is a 2004 chevy express 1500 cargo van. 4.3V6 in it.

like i said i can almost rebuild an engine but i have no idea about a AC unit. never messed with one before.

after changing out the tension and idle pulleys today and i had the front end apart. it was almost obvious it was the AC unit and after i changed both out to me it was plain as day where it was coming from now.

the squeals like a mofo, the clutch engagement works no problem as i see it cycle, but when it does cycle i hear a difference in pitch squeal from it "no doubt from the extra load"

does this help?

seen some on ebay for around 160-200 for remanufactured.

You just need someone to suck the system dry, check for leaks and fill it up with r134. hopefully, your compressor didn't blow metal parts in the system(that would be my main concern)

Well go out to a used car lot and find a similar van and take it for a test drive. Bring tools.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

well its doing it again since it got cold and fuck is it loader then i remember it.

can someone give me advise how to start this project?

where can i get the cheapest replacement unit? (TDS can you ebay search for me again)

i know how to get everything out the way to get to it and i can see the mounting bracket, but i need torque specs and also if there is a schematic for break down somewhere that would be awesome.

btw when i take off the AC hose bracket is freon gonna come shooting out of there?

Ken if you're interested in just the clutch he mentioned above (so you don't have to touch the refrigerant) I work at the NAPA DC in Naperville and could get you pricing at the rate of one of our big shops. You will need a special tool to pull the old clutch off/press the new one on. Not sure if that is better or worse than cracking open the system in your opinion.

If you want a compressor reman or new I can shoot you prices on that as well.

7. remove the mounting bolts from compressor
8. remove compressor from vehicle.

9. drain oil from compressor and measure how much oil drained out. drain from oil plug and from the hole in the back where the pipe goes. record how much oil


INSTALLATION
1. add oil to compressor
2. install compressor
3. install compressor retaining bolts to mounting bracket
tighten bolts to 37lb fts
4. install new seal washers (suggested)
5. install compressor hose assembly
6.install drive belt

9. install air cleaner

10. vacuum system for 30min,see if vacuum holds, and add freon.

thanks kegger. we think its the tension pulley. we wd40 hosed each part and the noise stopped when we soaked that part.

i even changed it and still had that noise but ill try a OEM one versus and vatozone one.

this was the 1st time i had a guy in 8 months give me a pair of man hands to help me fix something.

thanks bro!

It needs to be replaced - there is quite a bit of play at the pully = bearings shot.

a little update

270.00 bucks later with GM parts and the noise is gone.

the belt was the issue the whole time.

but installed a new tension pulley, new idler pulley, and belt and now its quite as a mouse. THANK GOD!!!

i did get the mass air flow sensor wet and it threw a engine code but after spraying it out with mass airflow cleaner that went bye bye. guess it didnt like being spitted on

the pedo van is now back to STEALTH MODE!

thanks mopar and kegger for your guys advise.
