A/C Compressor.

I have a 1992 Chevy Silverado. Since I`ve had it, it`s leaked around the ceramic seal in the compressor, so once a year I had to recharge it, no big deal. Few days back the seal around the compressor went south and the freon is gone. Is there a way to rebuild this unit?

You can rebuild compressors if you know what your doing. Its a little tough getting it together right and might be worth purchasing a new one. Go off price and knowledge.

I've rebuild quite a few compressors since being here, first one had to be rebuilt twice , but then again I taught myself how to do it, but I also have access to a parts manual and suply system that allows for every little piece to be ordered.

I really don't recommend doing it, but if it needs to be done go for it, if it doesn't work then you aren't in any worse condition . If it were me I'd just replace it and be happy.

If it's one of those funky pancake compressors replace it. If it's a R6 then rebuild it.
