Wrench 2006 Vue Red Line w/Honda 3.5l compressor

Hi Friends, I found a puddle under my Vue it has 100,900 mi. on it I recently had an oil change done and thought that's what was leaking. So I took it back and the said the compressor was soaked and leaking. I also noticed when driving my gas mileage has also dropped off about 6mpg. So I could see if the compressor is dragging that makes sense. Can anyone tell me how hard of a job it is to replace the system, or reccomend where to get it serviced and what a ballpark price is I'm located on the South side of Chicago. TIA

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

How big of a puddle? There is not much oil in the AC system. And if it did leak out the refrigerant oil, it also leaked out the refrigerant. The resulting low pressure would stop the Compressor Clutch from engaging, so it's not likely there would be a drag on the engine. I would do some more investigating.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
