Pontiac Tempest AC Compressor Parts
The Pontiac Tempest AC Compressor serves the purpose of passing the refrigerant under high pressure to the AC condenser. It is the heart of the air conditioning mechanism along with other parts such as the evaporator, expansion valve and receiver. The compressor is driven by means of a belt-pulley mechanism that is powered by the engine. When the AC is turned on, an electromagnetic clutch engages the pulley with the compressor. This makes the compressor pump the refrigerant at a high pressure. The refrigerant, which is usually either R-134a or HFC-134a, has a low boiling point. The amount of refrigerant should be maintained at a specified level for the proper functioning of the compressor. The oil level should also be kept in check as a higher oil level will fail to cool efficiently and a lower oil level may completely prevent the compressor from functioning. Some of the common problems with a bad compressor are a refrigerant leak, engine overheating and clutch failure. A damaged compressor will emit a loud knocking or squealing sound. If you notice any of the indications mentioned above, you should consider inspecting the AC compressor and replace it, if required.
