Low refrigerant charge. Unit is cycling on the low suction pressure switch.

This is a measure charge, so it needs to be pumped down, leak located, repaired, and a fresh charge measured back in.

AC Clutch noise and vibration


An A/C clutch will not make this concern happen, more likely the A/C compressor is begining to go out. The belt on the A/C clutch Assy. free wheels (spins feree on the pulley) when clutch is not engaged. If concern is not present with A/C off this means the bearings in the puley assy. ok. Once the A/C clutch is engaged it locks the compressor against the spinning pulley and turn the compressor chaft and spins the A/C compressor internal shaft. If you hear a loud "screach" when you turn on the A/C it means the belt slipped for a second, if it continiues to screach it means either the belt is loose or that the compressor is internaly locking up. I wouild start by checking the belt tension (if not equipted with and auto tensioner). You can also remove the belt and turn on the A/C and attempt to turn the clutch/pulley by hand, it should turn with a little effect but should not bind or lock at times if that happens compressor is bad.

2005 pathfinder, ac has stopped blowing cold, and it shudders violently when the compressor tries to come on. Not sure where the problem is in the system, but it will blow cold for a few seconds, but then...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. The symptom your describing sounds like the actual compressor pump take a lot of horsepower to turn it. Use a ratchet and socket on the center mounting nut for the compressor clutch. I would just about bet that it is VERY hard to turn. It should turn through with minimal resistance. If it is VERY hard to turn the compressor has failed. I would like to know either way on how hard or easy the compressor clutch mounting bolt turned. Just make sure you rotate the pump in the direction it would be turned while the engine is running.

The ac compressor clutch is not working can i change the clutch or the whole compressor


Hi , I'm David i'll be assissting you today.

To answer your question you can only put a new A/C Clutch on your Compressor.

It will require you to use a Special Tool to Remove the Clutch.

A/C Clutch Puller some Auto Stores may rent these Pullers by only putting a new Clutch on you'll save at Least $200.00-$300.00 ,Plus you don't have to Evacuate your A/C System.

So if i was having the same problem, I would just change out the bad A/C Clutch and Replace it Only:

Is the compressor cycling? If it is the refrigerant charge is most likely low. You will have to hook up a set of gauges and see what your pressure readings are with the A/C on and add the appropriate amount of R134a.

A/C clutch won't engage


ur still way low in freon the compressor clutch is designed to disengage when low on pressure so as not to overheat and seize causing possible damage to engine two ways to engage clutch --one is to jump clutch and continue to fill or keep adding freon until clutch pulls in

I am working on a problem with a '93 corolla. When at idle with the AC off there is a slight vibration but the engine RPM is about normal, after turnig the ac on and the clutch engages the vibration gets...


heres what ive seen happen. There is an aluminum hub that the new clutch slides onto. it has a groove in the end 4 a snap ring to keep the clutch from sliding off obviously. when you try to slide your old clutch off past that "ring land" it almost everytime breaks!(thin aluminum casting) so you may need compressor anyway. But more than that toyota had a special idle up circuit dedicated to just a/c and it would carbon up and fail--so you probably dont need a compressor any way. look at that first
