2000 town & country air conditioning
the compressor on my mini van has died. the car has 149,000 miles. dealer wants alot to replace and it looks very accesable. I found one at a local autoparts store much cheaper and they recomend changing the dryer also. has anyone done this?? is it a big job?? I looked and didnt see the dryer under the hood.
I was thinking of changing the compressor,dryer and associated o-rings. then taking it in fo a full service,
any thoughts ,sugestions would be welcomed!!

There may still be refrigerant in the system. I would suck it up and have a shop that works on A/C do the entire job. If you replace the parts and take it to a shopand there is a problem charging the system, you will have to pay them to do the repair anyway. There is no way you can check for leaks at your house unless you have a vacuum gauge. You can do the repairs yourself, just be sure of the repercussions if there is anything that goes wrong. Just my opinion.

Being way2old is why I need help from younger minds.
