    Ok this is my issue. My Ac compressor started to burn and then completely shut down. My mechanic replaced it along with a valve. It wasent as cold as before. Well the new compressor burned out , the mechanic replaced again along with the condenser and air dryer since he mentioned there was metal filings . Well guess what on a long drive down to Fl the damm compressor burned out again. So now my truck is in GA and have no damm clue what’s causing this issue. Any ideas?????

    The system needs to be Flushed.to remove any particals of the old compressor and any other junk.

    It’s a 2011. Miles are 140k
    The filter black tube he pulled out he called it the drier said it was clogged with metal. Something is causing it, it runs fine for a few days then begin to burn out and stop working.

    If there is metal it the drier there is metal elsewhere also, it sounds like it needs to be flushed.

    Your Mechanic should have flushed the system, Even instructions with a rebuilt states no warranty unless system is flushed. I would get a NEW mechanic !!! after 2 compressors must be alot of crap in system. Maybe he never added oil to the system or wrong oil.

    Right, it could be an oil issue, I didn't think of that. They need oil to run right.
