Grand Cherokee AC compressor

My 2006 Grand Cherokee compressor has gone out practically every single year (approx every 1 year 3 months). I think this is not normal at all.

I've paid $1000+ every time so far.

Is this normal? Is there a 3rd party compressor that will last longer? Tired of paying this cost.

Thanks!

Re: Grand Cherokee AC compressor

No, ofcourse this is not normal. I have my jeep for 10 years now and still the first compressor in it.
Was the change done at the same place every time? Did they put the right amount of lubricating oil in the system?

Re: Grand Cherokee AC compressor

Every single time has been at the Jeep dealer. The last time they got someone "out of house" to work on it. It has been failing the last 4 years. Always about 1 year 3 months.

I'm thinking of going somewhere else, but I have no idea where. I thought maybe there are 3rd party compressors that might work better.

Re: Grand Cherokee AC compressor

I would look for an AC specialist and let him do the job. The stealer obviously is doing something wrong. The OEM compressors are from DENSO i believe and normally last a long time.
