Asked by Apr 08, 2016 at 10:44 AM about the 2004 Ford Taurus SES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was filling Freon in my 2004 Taurus yesterday the compressor stated to work as I added 1 can , the Freon took longer than usual to empty the can ,1 small can , it was at 10lbs and drop as the compressor kicked on. I added a second can and was going in slowly , I went in the house for 10 minutes came out and the compressor was smoking , I shut the engine off and the belt snapped. I tried to start the car before I knew the belt snapped and was wondering if I could do any damage since the car would no longer turn over.

Sounds like the compressor locked up on you, and the belt just spun on the pulley till it broke. Time to let the pro's help you out. Sounds like you will need to find where the leak is, so at a min. you looking at a new AC compressor, hoses/seals, and refrigerant.
