Sounds like the AC compressor magnetic clutch drive has an excessive air gap on the driven plate.It sould be no more than 0.20"(20 thousands of an inch) use a feeler guage and measure at 4 different spots to get the average air gap, Ford sells shim kits.

Ac clutch won't engage on a 1999 dodge grand caravan automatic


Tap the clutch with a hammer lightly while a/c is on full blast. If it still doesnt engage its time for a new one. Future reference in the winter keep your heat on defrost some of the time, it activates your clutch in the A/C compressor so the bearings wont seize when you go to turn it on, on a hot day.

2003 Honda CR-V when the A/c compressor kicks on the engine drops 300 rpm, like it's going to stall. It's making a clunk noise when kicking on and I changed the battery thinking it was weak.


sounds like it's the iacv or idle air control valve not working due to dirt in the orifice or the iacv is burnt out and cannot turn correctly, or the wiring to it is faulty.

Good luck on the repair.

If the A/C compressor makes a clunk noise when kicking on, that could indicate a worn out compressor.

You're right, 300 rpm is way too low. It should be closer to 600 or 700 or 800 rpm and remain smooth when the a/c compressor kicks on.

I HAVE A CLUNKING SOUND WHEN CORNERING,& SOMETIMES FEELS LIKE THE CAR KICKS OUT AT THE REAR WHILST CLUNKING.I DRIVE A 1997, GRAND CHEROKEE ,4LTR ,LIMITED.


Clunking noises are generally suspension bushings that went bad. You must raise the vehicle and have the wheels off the ground to check with a bottle jacl and a crow bar to find what is loose. use the crow bar at areas with bushings to pry against to find any play
