A/c

Hello I am a new member. I have a 2007 Pontiac G6 with 57k on it. but i have a problem with the a/c. I just changed the a/c compressor but for some reason a/c does not turn on until after 15-20 minutes of driving!?? I have no idea what to do... Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to our community.

Is your engine coolant temp gauge acting normally?

Did you get a warranty on the A/C system work?

Yeah the coolent level acts normal.

They said the warranty does not work for me anymore

But the interesting thing is that once it starts working and you shut down the car and turn it on again, you have to wait for the a/c to start working again.

Who replaced the compressor & what was the warranty?

As I'm sure you know, A/C work is expensive & not very DIY friendly. You have to have a set of gauges & know how to interpret them as a starting point. You might call around A/C shops & see how much their diagnostic fee is.

So I assume the A/C clutch is not running for the first 15-20 min after startup?

Do you have manual or auto climate control?
