If the compressor is locked up or beggining to lock up, the belt will squeal loudly. most of the time the ac clutch will not engaged, leaving the center area of the pulley stationary will the pulley itself spins. if the internal portion spins, and there is no squeal, you will have to test it to make sure its building pressure. you can do this by pushing in the pin on the blead lines (just like letting air out of a tire) if pressure builds back after being released, the compressor is working and your issue lies elsewhere.

The original a/c clutch was probably burned up by the compressor locking up. Possible bad compressor.

In my 2000 ford expedition my temp gauge keep jumping back and fourth when I run my ac. Y?


Running the AC does increase load on the engine, and thus heating, so if gauge changes gradually, this is because the compressor kicks in for a while, then kicks out. If cooling system is not working properly, small additional load could cause temp change. Other possibility is compressor going bad and causing excess drag.

If change is sudden, loose wire somewhere near compressor could be the issue.

We have a 2000 3.0L caravan that we recently bought. The ac belt was off the compressor, so I put that on. The clutch would not engage. So reading online, I decided to bypass my Ac Clutch Relay. When...


i think you need a new compressor which is why the belt was left off ,also the gas is the main lubricant for the compressor as well so running it with no gas hasnt helped either ,best of british with it anyway

A sensor would turn the compressor on and off all the time. If it stays running you most likley have a weak compressor. Signs are not cooling at idle and cools better while driving but not cold as it should be. An
ac gauge set will tell if it is bad.

Dodge Ram AC not blowing cold


By pass both pressure switches one at a time with small wire or a paper clip. If comperssor kicks on replace the swich that you bypassed.
if not it could be the fan clutch ot the compressor. Compressor runs about $400.00

Bad ac compressor


U should replace the receiver drier, also called the accumulator, replace the high side line fixed orifice as well, you will need to drain the old compressor and measure the oil as well and add 6 ounce's to that amount you measured from the old ac compressor. and of course you will need approx four 14 ounce cans of R134

AC compressor wouldn't kicking in; 2000 Ford Taurus


If your R 134 is low in your system then the AC compressor will not engage the clutch to run the compressor. Have your system check for charge level of the R134 first. If low they can add to system. All AC systems leak down over a period of time and need to be recharged. So, don't get worried that your system is bad. If the charge depletes itself again quickly then you have a leak somewhere in the system that needs to be addressed.
