If you have the tools, you can do it yourself and save a bunch of money. For what a shop charges, you can replace your compressor, hoses, orifice tube, condensor and drier yourself. Then take it to a shop to vacuum out and charge. I did everything myself on my 2000 Mustang GT. Cost me about $400 total. I didnt have to replace 1 of the hoses, but I did replace all the o-rings. These are what almost always go bad and cause your system to leak.

As for your compressor locking up, what is it doing? Does it just not move when engaged? Replace it and the orifice tube/filters and have a shop flush the system and pressure test it. I personally dont trust any shops to work on my cars, so I do all that I can so they can do as little as I need them to do. Hell, I dont even trust Ford to work on my stuff :twak
