New AC Compressor

Well having everything checked out and found that my ac compressor is leaking and need a new one. Thank god for extended warranties, factory warranty expired may of this year. Had it checked last year and they thought it lost the freon due to the Schrader valve leaking. Well least it will be fixed before we leave for goshen. Everything else looks great, hopefully this should be it. .

Glad you found it now. So was it just leaking and needs a recharge or is the whole thing being replaced?
See you soon.

Yes they are replacing the compressor, and the extended warranty is covering it. Glad they had one in this town and did not have to wait for parts. Replacing as i type.

Replaced mine last year. Apparently, according to the Ford service writer, its a known fault on the V10 engine. Sooner or later---take your pick!!!
My extended warranty excludes the engine AC compressor but does cover the 2 coach units. Go figure!!!

OH you talking about the Ford engine AC and not the roof.
Yes I had mine replaced also under warranty a few years ago.

Ford AC compressor recently replaced here too. Thank goodness! It was 109 driving through the desert last week. We ran all AC's just to stay cool.

Being you are using your Georgetown year round makes it a valuable policy.
Good Job!

I'm going through this right now. My mechanic is having a hard time finding parts here, SC. I am not under any warranty so any ideas on what this might cost, parts & labor? I know minimum of at least $800.
