Default A few AC issues I am having.....

WARNING ****I know just about nothing in regards to car repair other than a few things i learn at places like this. Quick learner but need to be taught***** Lingo will probably be off

1. The AC works fine but i would rather be proactive if this actually a problem. The compressor seems to make a ton of noise. When i step on the gas it gets loud until it clicks off. I asked a guy about it at a local shop and he said it needed to be oiled. Does this make sense? I know the dodges have ac problems because my old one used to only cool when i hit the gas and this same thing has happened to a few people i know with chrysler brands.

2. My radiator is leaking. Lower corner on the big grate where the metal coils meet the plastic is dripping an ounce or so a day. Does the entire radiator need to be replaced or is there a way to fix this?

sounds like you have a problem with that a/c compressor. im not to sure about that particular part, so cant help you there.

However, your radiator can be fixed by someone who knows what they are doing with a brazing torch.
I got to use my AK........... today was a good day.
