The clutch reservoir is on the bulkhead / firewall by the brake fluid reservoir under the bonnet / hood. Its likely to be low or out of fluid. If this is the case its more than likely that you have a leak from the master cylinder or slave cylinder. First have a look from the clutch pedal side for any signs of fluid around the firewall area. Then follow the pipe from the master cylinder down to the gearbox bellhousing. The slave cylinder is what it attaches to. Chances are there will be a leak from under the rubber boot where the rod exits. In some cases you will have to remove it from the bell housing to check for leak. You can usually leave the pipework on at this stage. Carefully prize of the dust cover and check for leaks. Be careful not to let it drip in your eyes. If its leaking remove completely and replace it or the seals. Refit and bleed the clutch after topping up reservoir.

My 1996 Ford Ranger A/C does not come on. The compressor clutch does not seem to even try to engage. Was fine one minute than suddenly just stopped working next time I turned the car A/C on

Please checck the fuse to the clutch and also the relay to the clutch drive. Perhaps there is a loose line here that is working intermittent.
Try to engage and disengage to see if the solenoid works fine.
If not check if the relay contacts are faulty and heating.
If so replace.
I hope this must solve the issue.

2000 chevy truck 5.3 liter. air conditioner works 10-15 min then stops. clutch and clutch pressure switch good, freon level good, batt and alternator good??

After the clutch disengages ( when it's not suppose to )check the voltage on the + output terminal on the clutch relay, (inside the fuse box under the hood) if you have voltage there, check the voltage at the clutch, if you have voltage there too, its the clutch. The clutch gets worn and will engage when cool,but fails after heat builds up. Check this by tapping the face of the clutch with the ac on, if it's simply a worn clutch it will likely engage for a while.

The ac is blows but the air is not cold.... the compressor is working the ac clutch may not be engaging

if refrigerating system low in presure(low refrigerator level)presure sensor wil not send signal to engage clutch...the second think if system under normal pressure check electrical connectors if they ok,a/c compressor is faulty.
