Ok, upon daylight inspection.....i missed a belt apparently. the A/C compressor is in such a strange place on this car as compared to my domestic V8's i overlooked it. there is no longer a belt on the A/C compressor. i noticed this when i went to drive it and the A/C didn't blow any cold air at all. when i finally found the A/C compressor i saw that the belt was gone. is there anything else critical hooked to this belt? it looked like just the A/C compressor and a small pulley that didn't do anything but spin the belt. LMK on that for sure. as for the compressor, i can spin the pulley on it rather easily and it spins freely.....but not a lot. just as far as i push it, then a little more. does that mean the compressor is OK and the belt just was worn or got something (the oil pressure unit) caught up in it? i am not sure if compressors seize up when bad. i know my alternator seized up on me and this didn't seem like it seized, and it does spin. i am not sure on what is the best way, short of the new belt, to know if the compressor is shot. i figure to have a belt thrown on down at goodyear tommorow since i am not familiar with this setup and would rather have someone look at the compressor too. but any info would be appreciated on what i can look at myself. thanks.
