SOURCE: Air condition problem

When you say "noisy", is it a metallic grinding noise? Or, did someone overcharge the system. If the compressor IS internally noisy, replacing it is only half of the job. Anytime that comperssors fail, metallic particles get in the system, from the grinding of the compressor vanes or bearings...and need to be removed. Most of the time, they are trapped in a device called the "receiver-dryer", located next to the condenser in the front of the car. So, replace the compressor, replace the receiver-dryer, and evacuate the system. Hold a vacuum for 30 minutes, and then recharge. Not replacing the receiver dryer will damage the new compressor.

SOURCE: my air conditioning is not blowing any cold air.

It shoud have R134a, I would use a recharge kit. If you have a slow leak this will only be a temporary fix. They usually sell a kit with a dye inside the can, If you use that you should be able to locate where the leak is.

SOURCE: Air conditioning causes car to idle or die.

Depending on whether your car is Injected or Carby induction, The aircon system has an IDLE UP circuit which is supposed to raise the Idle while the Aircon Compressor is engaged. The Compressor cycles on & off to charge the system pressure as required. The Idle up system typically uses an IDLE UP SOLENOID which is usually mounted directly on the throttle linkage at the Carby or Throttle body itself, or a Vacuum Solenoid which switches vacuum to a Diaphram which is connected to a linkage on the Carby or Throttle body itself, or a Vacuum Switch which ports air into the throttle body to raise idle (This type on injected vehicles only). It sounds as if the IDLE UP system has failed or is not adjusted properly. Revving the engine spins the compressor faster thus charging the system sufficiently to dis-engage the compressor, which in turn removes the load from the engine, allowing it to idle again. A simple way to test is to disconnect the Aircon clutch wire (make sure it cannot fall into belt) & switch on the Air with the engine running. The RPM should raise typically around 300 RPM. If it doesn't the IDLE UP is not working. Hope this helps.

Article 96-26-21 is being republished in its entirety as part of a consolidated 7.3L diagnostic aid booklet.
ISSUE
Some vehicles with transmissions built prior to 11/13/95 (5L13) may exhibit a driveline resonance/vibration between 1400 and 2000 RPM with the torque convertor engaged. This may be caused by the torque converter.
ACTION
Prior to torque converter replacement, refer to the following Service Procedure for details to verify conditions.
SERVICE PROCEDURE
1. Verify the resonance/vibration does not occur in neutral and is most noticeable between 1400 and 2000 RPM with the converter clutch engaged during medium to heavy throttle conditions. Also watch for the vibration to diminish at engine speeds lower than 1400 and higher than 2000 RPM. If the concern meets all of these conditions and the transmission has a built date prior to 11/13/95 (5L13), replace the torque converter. Refer to the appropriate Service Manual for removal and installation procedures.
2. If the vibration concerns do not meet the conditions, check for non-factory installed items that could affect driveline and verify proper installation. Also refer to the appropriate Service Manual, Section 05-00 for diagnosis and testing.
