A/c clutch freeze up and later comes on - 1993 Lincoln Town Car

    the clutch seems to freeze up when the temp is over 80 or has been running for a while. very frustrating in hot weather.

    When my A/C is on it freezes up within minutes and quits blowing cold or acutally any air at all. You can hear the blower fan still blowing. Now when I turn the heat on it blows warm for a few minutes then the air stops as well,but you can still hear the motor fan still going? It's almost like something is blocking it. We replaced the blender door actuator last month but it didn't do anything. We then replaced the blower fan and it still isn't working right. When I park the car there is a considerable about of water dripping underneath.

Have some check the evaporator. If it is dirty no air can pass threw and the evaporator can freeze up. Creating a lot of moisture when warm air coming in hits the evaporator.

How do you manually jump start ac clutch on Ford Expedition trition 5.4l

Identify the hot wire going to the compressor clutch - or the wire going to it from the low pressure switch. Jump that connection to battery and clutch will activate. But until you fix, you will have to manually turn the clutch on and off lest you freeze up the evaporator when car is running at high way speeds. In steamy stop and go traffic you can get away with it being on all the time.

2000 Civic stolen, air controls taken, then clutch fell off

Coincidence... in my opinion.

1. In your long drive, you may have set the a/c on "Max" or "recirculate" ... and set the fan on low. This can cause "freezing" the core inside the vehicle; this will create a lot of pressure in the compressor and the clutch will slip.
The "freeze" will cause the air to feel warmer; because the refrigerant is not circulating correctly.

2. Also, if there was oil or some other lubricant on the clutch, the clutch would slip, heat-up and fall apart.

3. The "fixed" a/c controls may have left the "vent" (non-circulating) control disconnected so that the inside core is unable to receive any "outside" warm air to keep the core from freezing... (possible)

Hope this helps ... comments anyone??

A/C problems

A/C works on a principal of compressing the gas in the system and sending it to the cool condensor in the car where it cools the vehicle, then goes to the front condensor where it releases the heat generated by the process. Several things can be happening here; the front condensor is plugged up with bugs and debris and needs to be cleaned; the interior condensor is freezing up from moisture freezing on it; the small control valve that makes the whole thing work is freezing up and the system is on hole untill it thaws and then it starts working again. There could be a problem with the amount of freon in the system. In the front of the engine next to the condensor is a freon storage canister with a small glass window in the top of it. With the airconditioning running look in the window and see if there is fluid running smoothly thru it of if it is bubbly and foamy going by the window. If bubbly and foamy then the A/C needs to be serviced. The compressor clutch will not work untill the system has the right pressure on the safety switch in the system. Good luck, RAC

My 1997 f-150 truck transmission started to give me problems

It's a tranny problem the anti-freeze in the coolant destroyed the clutches in the tranny and all of the seals. This is a very bad problem the clutch material and the seals in that tranny are not made to stand up to the anti-freeze. The converter is less affected by because it not in the sealed housing of the tranny.

Probably a throw-out bearing, also called a clutch release bearing. It will eventually have to be replaced, and sooner better than later. If it freezes up completely, you can do some damage to the clutch assembly or release arm.
