Q: Bad AC condenser or compressor

asked by on

The AC is not working. I suspect a bad condenser or compressor, but I am not sure.

Hello. Firstly, I would recommend checking the refrigerant levels. Low refrigerant causes similar symptoms of a bad compressor or condenser. Our company provides on site vehicle inspection by ASE certified technicians who will check the refrigerant pressures, and if necessary, help further determine which AC components are faulty.
