What is an Idler Pulley? Idler Pulley Definition

Your car's air conditioning compressor uses oil for lubrication. Moisture in the system causes corrosion that can restrict the expansion valve on the compressor. When that happens, the flow of oil to the compressor stops. Having an Inline Filter helps trap the contaminants that cause corrosion so that oil can flow freely to the A/C compressor.
