Air Conditioner Compressor

Asked by May 25, 2018 at 07:57 PM about the 1989 Chevrolet Caprice

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1989 Chevrolet Caprice body style Sedan 5.0 (305 V-8 Engine)  I had an Air Condition charge, it lasted for 2 years and now it's out again not working, went to have it checked, was told didn't see any leaks but obviously there must be, anyway, mechanic said I need a new a/c compressor however I didn't 100% trust his answer, went somewhere else, they did a charge and I got the very cold air working great but stopped again in a short time but this mechanic said it has to be a leak that it wasn't the compressor because I wouldn't have got any cold air at all and he tested it on a machine. I don't know who is telling me the truth or what to do. Some places like Autozone sell where you can recharge yourself and it includes stop leaks but some mechanics say don't do that because it will ruin and clog the system. Help! I don't know who to believe or what to think or do. Does anyone know the correct answer to this?
