Re: need help

If the compressor was siezed, you would fry a belt in a minute or two. You could pull the belt off and check all the pulleys to see if they spin freely, or if the bearings sound dry.Something may be on its way out. (2 cents)

Re: need help

If you don't want to fix the compressor, visit Untitled Document and check out their compressor bypass pulleys. You remove the compressor and install this in it's place. It's an exact fit, so you use the same belt and tensioner. They're about $30. I'm not affiliated with dorman.
