Loss of power

Asked by Jun 17, 2016 at 12:13 PM about the 2000 Chrysler Sebring LXi Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My a.c. compressor started making a awful sound
a few weeks ago. Yesterday we was sitting in line
at McDonald's. And it was scorching. As we pulled
off the compressor made a loud crazy sound then
the car shut off. It started back up but lost power.
Wouldn't move. Can I tell me what may have
happened

I completely understand. Removing the air conditioning compressor is not too hard however more than likely still going to be under pressure. Technically it should be you removed by mechanic through a vacuum system due to all the tree huggers . blah blah blah. Butt just make sure you take it off carefully it will be under pressure most likely. Once this is done you will need to take it to the mechanic they will have to put a vacuum on it to make sure there are no further leaks on the system before it is recharged. I hope this helps some
