Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.
Seems like a lot to replace a compressor and expansion valve. Was this quoted at the dealer?
The expansion valve is not on the compressor it is close to the evaporator.
If the valve is stuck it could be starving the compressor for oil, this would damage the compressor.
I am not sure what the cost to replace it would be, it depends on the cost of the parts and the labor.
what about the high side?
That sounds about right.
Here is a pic of the expansion valve.
Are you looking to do the repairs yourself? I can send you the repair procedures for the expansion valve and the compressor if you would like.
It should not make any noise. You could start with the expansion valve and go from there.
Sounds like a good plan. Let me know how it goes.
