    A/C compressor oil leak?

    Went out to check the engine oil and noticed that there was oil on the magnetic clutch head on the a/c compressor and on everything close to it. It has happened in the last week as I had new tires put on last week and looked everything over real good after they put the tires on and there was no oil visible. Would the oil be leaking out around the shaft seal behind the clutch head, and if so what are my options. A/C is still working, but I am worried about the compressor locking up if I run it, and right now it is pretty damn hot here in NE Texas. Thanks for any information.

    I dont think there is that much oil in the compressor. Check for other places oil could be comming from.

    I have also noticed that with mine earlier. In my surprise i thought it was a leak coming from the compressor. But i am not totally sure about that if that was a leak. But i am pretty much sure that the liquid blackish thing was an oil.

    The compressor was leaking oil. It started slinging oil up onto the underside of my hood. It was also slinging oil onto my belts and making them chirp or squeal, whatever you want to call it. The belts were only noisy on days after I had run the A/C and would eventually quite down with about an hours drive time. The dealer tech sprayed something on the area around the compressor and when he did, it made the oil fluoresce. Had the compressor replaced before it locked up.
