    Yes, it is the condenser.
    I would think it can be driven without it...but not 100% on that.

    Replacing it isn't too bad...can be time consuming and then you will have to refill the system.


    My car doesn't have that anymore.

    Thanks

    Do you know everything about cars is general or mainly the fbodies. You seem to be right on on all most of the questions I see on this board

    Thanks a lot once again and I couldn't live without air.
    Did you remove the condenser or your car didn't have air?

    Removed it.

    I can normally figure stuff out in general, but I have had my T/A torn apart so many times, I just have the experience with these cars.

    If it is aluminum then you can have it repaired. Any radiator shop should be able to fix it. Then you just need a recharge for the a/c system.

    prices

    They seem to vary in price from 69 to 130 I wonder what the differences on them. It will probably cost about the same to fix or buy a new one

    a/c is very high pressure, I doubt it would be able to be repaired and if it was it probably would not last! You can drive it as long as the a/c clutch never is engaged.

    Since you said you couldn't live without air, you should replace it very soon. Otherwise, the system will become contaminated and likely damage the compressor. Then the repair cost will hurt much more.

    agreed....you'll have to replace the condensor and then take it to a pro somewhere and have them vacuum the system and fill it.

    If the cost to repair, at a shop that does this type of thing, is almost as much as a new condensor, just get a new condensor. It won't hurt anything to drive the car as is, the compressor clutch will not come on even if you ask for AC. There is a pressure sensor in the AC system, if it is too low, the PCM will not command the compressor on even if you tell it you want to. If you get this done by this Friday, you could get away with the new condensor, evauate the AC system, then recharge. If you wait too much longer, you should replace the accumulator as well. It removes moisture from the AC system. Moisture, either by itself or in combination with the oil in the system and that leads to failures of evaporators, hoses, compressors and condensors.
