'99 Dodge Dakota 5.2L

Original problem: A/C compressor pulley locked up. Compressor was replaced. A/C worked great until the compressor seal blew. Eventually the refrigerant and oil leaked out. I didn't bother messing with it since I rarely drive it.

Problem now: I'm going to be making long trips south and I need A/C. I could not find a new seal so I used silicone. I bought one of those Interdynamic cans of oil and refrigerant and injected that into the low pressure port. The pressure is still there after a few days so my seal is holding, but still no A/C.

I noticed that the compressor will cycle on for a second then stop. 1/2-1 second on, then 15 or more off. Is it that I don't have enough oil in the compressor? Or is it more likely an electrical issue? I replaced a burned out 40 amp fusible link for the trailer connection and now all fuses are fine.

If bikes had A/C I probably wouldn't be asking these questions.

the system does not have enough or has too much freon in it. It is designed to automatically cycle off when pressure fluctuations are out of stock limits. You should have the "field" of the compressor replaced. That is the part that has a seal that usually leaks in it. If you do that, though, you might as well replace the clutch, field, and pulley assembly. It all will come as a compressor rebuild kit.

Good luck.

Trav if youve left the system open to the elements for any amount of time your gonna need lots of parts. I mean more than a a couple of hours. Condenser, eavaporator/drier, a a bunch of valves and such. And there is the possabilaty of a blockage some where.
