Air Con Compressor
Can anyone give me any advice please?
I have a 2.2 I-CDTI (2006), which I purchased second hand only 4 months ago with 69k on the clock. Since having the car I have noticed that there is a slight hesitation in the response of the engine, alot like the irritation you would get when the air con is turned on. This very slight judder is only noticible at low rev's and eliminated at high speeds.
Since the very brief spell of hot weather I was caused to turn on the air con only to find that it didnt work. I immediately thought that a re-gas would sort this problem. Following a visit to my local mechanic I was informed that there was minimal gas in the system and that it was now charged to is optimum level with no leaks. (Then came the big but) The air con is still not working and all indications would suggest that the a/c compresser is knackered.
Can some one please tell me if a knackered a/c compresser would cause this tiny judder and could anyone recommend any supplier of these items.
