    Hi all, I have a 97 Seville SLS. All the sudden, I started getting weird messages on my display saying that the oil life was at 0% (i just changed it a few weeks ago), then the temp was over to the H and then it said to pull car over and stop. I thought that it may have been the water pump at...
  2. Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999-2006
    Folks, Not to start a crazy thread, but I've had my truck for just over two weeks now, and I'm starting to get worried. It's a 2004 ESV with just under 56k miles, and it was treated very well by the previous owner. I went into the purchase eyes wide open knowing that it needed front diff...

    So is this typically the leveling compressor? Or something else? The car doesn't seem any lower or ride any differently than it ever has. It's been a while since I pulled codes, but it wasn't on there the last time I did. The only way I noticed it now was that I hacked the IPC to add the...

    98 STS Z / 230k miles. I had a new compressor installed last year by my local mechanic, also the dryer/accumulator and orifice tube. Mechanically the system works fine, and it is still fully charged after nearly a year, so no leaks are suspected. BUT, ever since the new compressor was...

    Just got a new factory compressor installed, it was ok for about few, then a strange vibration can be heard when the compressor is on, it goes on and off depending on speed. Could this be the belt? its brand new also since i had a shorter belt on to bypass the ac, it blows cold but once i...

    Hi guys, been away for a loooong time cos its summer and I been caught up in all my other hobbies lol. Well the other day my AC Compressor locked up and snapped the belt. For some reason it just locked up and is done for. Now my question is, since the AC worked fine before this, can I JUST...

    I know the compressor doesn't turn when the a/c is on; do I need the clutch too?

    Going down the road my a/c went out a lil later my girl was driving and the belt came off. After checking to put a new belt on i found all the bolts came out of the compressor the hoses snapped and the clutch was in pieces. anyone else heard of this or had this happen?:hmm:

    My compressor was making all kinds of noise, so I tried spraying it out with penetrating oil, brake cleaner, etc but it didn't work. It made lots of scraping sounds, but the AC was ice cold. I noticed the air gap was completely closed, so I got the tool from Autozone and backed it off the...

  13. Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    My compressor was very hard to turn. I took it next door to the guy who normally works on my mustang and he added some oil and flush to it. He was able to free it up. It spins freely now. Should it be making any suction at all when I spin it? Is there an easy way to test it before I install it?
  14. Seville and Eldorado Forum
    Does anyone know if there is a shorter serpentine belt for a 96 eldorado (4.6 northstar) im done replacing the ac compressor so im looking to see if there is a belt that would bypass the condenser completely? if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated, thanks
  15. Seville and Eldorado Forum
    Hard knocking compressor on a 97 SLS so I looked at orifice tube and found metal shavings. My question is for those that have had this type of hard failure and the ability to adequately flush the condensor and line set so I'm not back under the car replacing it again in 6 months. Took a look at...

    So where exactly is the compressor for the Air Ride system? I looked in the trunk on the passenger side and saw what I think is it - just over the wheel. It ran when I turned the key on and off and on (I believe this was to reset it ) then shut off after a few seconds - does it sound like it's...

    I have a 1995 Base model and the air doesn't work. I'm also thinking that the heat doesn't work, either, but that is another issue and for another time. Just feeling around down by the compressor I can feel what I think to be compressor oil. I'm not sure if it's the compressor leaking or where...

    I have a 97 eldorado etc, and the past couple days every time I start the car there's a loud squealing from the pass side for maybe 5 seconds or so. Also sometimes it takes 3 or 4 minutes for the a/c to blow cold, and when I'm standing at a stop light with the a/c on the car slowly lurches...

    Found and cured the problem - it was not low coolant but too much coolant. Put the guage on it and it was high in the green zone - cycled to red all the way when compressor engaged and then the compresser shut off - overloaded in 6 seconds. Let some coolant out and re- checked the guage - now it...

    My a/c was working great blowing ice cold air. The only thing that was wrong with it, the compressor was clicking. I purchased a new compressor and installed it. I Charged the system back up. Turned the air on and no cold air. The a/c only blows cool air when rpms are over 2k. Replaced drier...
