Well, I just got news my ac compressor is shot, and I just found out they are $900. I have found some online as cheap as $600, but is there any other way to work this out? I saw something about the possibility of a Corvette compressor. Someone help!?
I'd sell you mine but unfortunately my AC stopped working this season! I don't know what the cause is, just that it will likely be very expensive to fix! Driving with the windows open won't work for much longer. Sorry to sidetrack the conversation.

Amazon has the best price by far. Although, there are only a few left in stock.

If you can see the pulley (on the compressor) rotating as it should, that would indicate that the compressor *might* still be functioning within. If you can depress the valve core (in the low pressure fill valve located alongside the radiator cap) for a moment, you would want to have some freon escape. That would indicate that there is *some level* of a charge in the system.
With the engine running, and the AC selected to on (and calling for lots of cold air), you would want to feel a *major temp shift* in the pipes going to/from the high and low pressure service valves. If the *temp shift* between the 2 pipes does not exist, the compressor either is not *working* the freon as it should, or the freon charge is so low, there isn't enough in the system to get compressed (and create the warm pipe/cold pipe temp split desired). Then again, there very well could be a fault code (or codes) reported, that might say what was being sensed, that caused the compressor to stop making cold air.
