What is the problem when you feel hard spots while turning the a/c compressor clutch?
Does my car A/C have BlackDeath? If I have BlackDeath what are the components that I need to replace and how to verify it? Many Thanks!!!

    Did you turn the compressor by hand? Not all compressors turn easily and many will not turn until the belt is on. Be sure to check your book on which ones can be turned by hand and which ones cannot. The Delphi H series definitely cannot. Some FS6 and others are hard to turn. Blackdeath is the worst compressor disease and normal flushing appears to be cleaning out the system because you see some of the contamination come out with the flush. The biggest problem is that most of it is still inside, almost like a powder coating on a piece of metal. Normal flushing is not an assurance, and the best way is to elevate the problem to the professional, the dealer, they are equipeed with machine for total cleaning of the a/c system and parts replacement.

    What is best flushing it or filtering?
    Nissan Technical Advisor
    I can recommend to put filters in the suction and discharge side to protect the orifice tube and the compressor. This didn't always work because the contamination was so severe, it would just plug up the filters in a very short amount of time. A regular flush gun, attached to your air compressor with even the best liquid flush, is not powerful enough to remove the Black Death material from components in most cases. Dealers has special machine for total flushing that powerful enough to actually

    break this contamination down into a flushable material. So the best action is to visit dealer to do the job.

    Yeah I turn it by hand that's why I feel the hard spots. How can I tell if I didn't turn it by hand?
