There must be some reason why these solenoid based compressors don't last compared to older type.

The evaporator on Tiidas (local) starts leaking early. We replaced ours at 25,000 orig. kms.
Peace.

Although the pulley is bigger the same belt works on it thanks to the wide range of adjustment available. It looks like a factory installation and that's what I was hoping for. I'm enjoying constant cool breeze again.

During my research however, I came across a possible cause for the premature failure of the solenoid valve. The original one fails after about 8 years due to normal wear and tear, but the replacement valve could be failing too quickly because of the lubricant our local a.c. technicians are using whenever they do a repair. These new compressors use polyalkylene glycol (pag) based lubricant, whereas our techs are still using polyolester (poe) based lubes. Both are miscible with r134a refrigerant but the two oils themselves don't mix with each other. When they come into contact with each other paraffin wax forms and that is capable of fouling the solenoid valve. I'm no a.c. tech, nor am I a chemist, that's just what I came across while reading.


hello can u let us know what compressor u bought - assuming u bought it online & shipped it in yourself ?


i am going thru same ac compressor issues with my 141 fielder & to me rather than go pay for some old used over priced f/used compressor that may conk out after a while i rather buy something brand new

in case anybody wondering about d part no for compressor its ... 88310-52551

I modified and using the NZ121 compressor (bottleneck) and it works fine. Using it for over a year now, no issues. I think you can get this brand new locally. Maraj AC in San Juan.
