The compressor came filled with 6.5 oz of tag oil, which was enough for the compressor and the new dryer. No additional oil was required for the system. The new unit was very easy to install. I ordered the compressor and orfice tube online at advanceautoparts.com and was able to pick up the products at my local advanced auto parts store the very same day. It is nice to go online to order and check availability of parts and make only one stop. Since this is a new installation I do not have any reviews concerning the durability of the unit. However, after flushing and vaccuming and charging the system it cools the truck very well.

I was given wrong compressor(T58950)instead of 58950 that I had ordered(thats how first review originated) The items descriptions are correct, the 58950 is made in USA etc. and the T58950 is made in China etc. After 5 weeks the T58950(china)compressor locked up and had to replace which was warranted but I still had to pay labor cost again.I cannot give honest review until I know I am satisfied with 58950. Also after contacting Warranty claims dept.the only way you can recover any labor cost is if certified tech orders parts,installs them,plus replace dryer,orifice and flush system.I did everyhing by the book for the ONE exception, I took parts to my mechanic and it voided my labor reimbursment. Lesson learned!

      Comments about Factory Air Air Conditioning Compressor with Clutch - New:

      We just bought a 1999 Tahoe 4X4 with 225,000 miles. We just replace the old air compressor with this one and the thing is like a freezer inside! Really comes handy on the hot weather in Florida. Our Tahoe has a rear climate control and it's cold as much as it is on the front. We ordered the parts online and by the time I got to the store, it was ready in the counter waiting on me. The employees at the store were really friendly and even gave me some advice for the installation. Love the product, but more than anything, I love the service. Thanks!

          Fit exactly and included the O-rings for the hoses. I took a chance and did not get a new high pressure switch - I just moved the one from the old compressor. The new compressor included the snap ring for the high pressure switch. I did not get an instruction sheet so I went to the Factory Air website and it had the installation tip sheet. I added the 2 oz. of PAG oil, tilted it up so the front seal got some lubrication, installed the compressor, rotated the shaft the prescribed 10 times. After pulling a vacuum and leak testing, I charged the system. It is significantly quieter that my old one and has thus far cooled for 2 weeks. I have "sniffed" the A/C system twice since installing and can find no leaks.

              I rebuilt the AC in my sons truck by replacing the drier, orifice, and compressor and it works great. My younger son actually removed and replaced the compressor. The compressor was a good value and shipped directly to my house for free.

              The AC compressor was missing a compressor high pressure switch installed in the back plate. The idea was to use the one from your old compressor. It could fail and cost you your freon. I went to my Advance store and purchased a new one. As a minimun I thought it should be mentioned in the item description. As a result it cost me a lot of time. The compressor does work well.

                When my three year old compressor locked up the clutch melted and the bearing sounded like a crash happening under the hood. It was time for a replacement. Shopped around looking for the best value and high ratings. The original on-line price for this compressor was good but the 20% off promotion made it great. No core charge on top off that. I ordered the compressor and two days later it arrived with free shipping.

                Perfect fit, very easy to install, clear instructions should you need them. Pre-loaded with good oil, made for a quick fix.

                Once again I'm enjoying the quiet and the cool breeze.

                        8 oz, and ensure you put 2 to 3 oz in the accumulator and the remainder in the compressor. Please remember, while performing this step to rotate the clutch to ensure the internal parts are being lubricated.

                        It may differ from the manufacturer so retrieve the correct amount of oil information from the AC sticker on the car or from a maintenance manual or from capacities guide, the under hood decal or from an O.E service manual.
