Q: AC making noise 3 for years

asked by on

My AC has been making noise for 3 years. Yesterday, it stopped making noise and stopped working. Now I get a flashing AC light. I found a replacement compressor with clutch for $113 on eBay and $130 on Amazon. Others cost $250 to $350. Is there any reason not to use the less expensive ones? I checked and the relay is OK.

My car has 220000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
