4 Typical Signs Of A Defective AC Compressor In Your Car

Every air conditioning system in a vehicle depends on a constant flow of refrigerant. With this refrigerant, the air conditioner can produce the cool air that comes out of the ventilation slots in the dashboard. The only way that this refrigerant can continue to function properly is through a component called an air-conditioning compressor, also known as an AC compressor. This component creates a pressure that pushes the refrigerant and allows it to flow smoothly. 
As long as the AC compressor remains operational, a stable, cool stream of air should exit from the vents. But like everything else, an AC compressor can fail.
There are some warning signals that will be displayed if your AC compressor becomes poor. Below are 4 common symptoms listed;
