JA: Whether it's at the end of the driveway or on the highway, a car stalling can be dangerous. The good news is the mechanics we work with have tons of experience dealing with all kinds of engine issues. How old is the battery? Does the car stall out mainly when going up or down hills?
Customer: Not the motor the compressor
JA: Got it. I'll pass this info along to the mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Hello, there's an orifice in the liquid line from the evaporator to condensor that may be clogged. Anytime a compressor is replaced it's best to replace the orifice or line along with the acumulator/dryer and flush the system before pulling a vacuum and recharging I'll post the proceudre below for replacing the line and acumulator/dryer for you.If my answer has helped you, please help me by leaving a rating or accepting my answer so I may be credited.
