SOURCE: engine running hot and air conditioning not working

Any time your car overheats, you need to shut it down ASAP or you can melt the aluminum parts of the engine or crack a head gasket, a repair which is the automotive equivalent of open heart surgery.
The AC cuts out to protect the engine from heating even more. But what you can do to bring down the engine temperature is to switch on the heater, but even this is only advisable for a couple miles or so until you get to a repair station. At this point, your check engine light should have been on. Any time that light is on and you don't know the reason, you need to call roadside assistance if you are not within 5 or 10 minutes of a safe place to pull over.
If the thermostat sticks in the closed position, it means that no matter how much coolant is in the reservoir it is not able to circulate freely through your engine. The thermostat can also get stuck in the open position, meaning the car won't warm up when you turn the crank (car runs too cold).
According to some car care guides, the thermostat should be replaced every two years. It is a VERY cheap part, but if it fails and you continue driving the car in an overheated state, you might be looking at a new car and/or a new engine. Running your car overheated is not much better than running your car with no oil in it. Those are two surefire ways to fry the engine.

SOURCE: Faulty Air Conditioning in a 2000 Nissan Pulsar N16

It's quite possible that your A/C compressor is locking up, thereby causing excessive load on the engine.(translates into lack of power to drive wheels) Typically there are signs, such as the noises you heard, or a slipping or thrown belt. If the compressor is locking up, being belt driven it will draw excess power from the engine. It's also possible that the compressor clutch in conjunction with compressor is going bad as well (both are usually related). That would cause excessive amperage to be drawn through the circuit, thereby blowing the fuse. Ultimately, it sounds like you have figured out your own problem, but I hope what I've posted helps.

SOURCE: just have a whining noise coming from belt

its probably just the belt is a tad loose, since when the belt is old it get worn/stretched, and can slip when the engine is running, causeing a whining noise, to fix this the easiest thing to do is tighten the belt. you can tighten the belt by loosening up one of the belt pulleys, there shouls be one that is on a slider and you can adjust it with a socket or wrench

SOURCE: Difference between an Air Filter and Air Conditioning filter

The air conditioning filter that your manual speaks of is known as a ''cabin filter'', it is much differant then your engine air filter. It filters the incoming air into your vehicles interior. So if someone has told you to replace your ''air filter'' they are more then likely speaking of your ''engine'' air fitler. You should check your engine air filter every oil change. If it shows signs of dirt, then replace it. Hope this helps =)

SOURCE: heating / air conditioning control stuck to front defrost vents

There is a vacuum leak under the hood. Find the vacuum line on the passenger side where it comes through the firewall and follow it to the engine. You system needs vacuum to operate and without it the default setting is on defrost for safety reasons.

Did you add the correct amount of oil to the compressor? Is it overcharged? Did you evacuate all the air with a vacuum pump before charging? Was the fixed orifice replaced? If you are sure you did the install right and the oil and charge are correct you have another defective compressor

Air conditioner fan is making a loud noise

1. Could be a caught foreign object between A/C (air conditioning) fan and cooling radiator, producing this loud noise.
2. Could be a damaged fan blade, mowing the cooling radiator.
3. Could be a loud noise comming from the fan's electrical motor.
4. Could be a broken off fin (small wing) of the cooling radiator, striking the A/C fan, producing this loud noise.

Very loud clanging noises started while driving

Try to remove the belt for the ac and see if you still hear the noise, as it sounds like you may have blown the seal or bearing out of the ac compressor , not sure just a guess.
