1998 Mustang AC Compressor Leak?


I have a 1998, 3.8L, V6 Mustang coupe.

It has about 108,000 miles on it but runs good as I try to keep up with the maintenance.

The past few weeks I've been hearing a loud squeak from the engine area.

I've taken it to Pep Boys and EconoLube who both say they "think" it's a leaking AC Compressor that needs to be replaced.

The compressor does have tiny dark fluid spots on it but the air still blows cold. Sometimes I hear the squeak with the AC on, and sometimes with the AC off.

Whether the AC is on or off... when I turn off the motor, after about a 2-second delay I'll hear a loud squeal which fades after a few more seconds.

What do y'all think?
