Question about 1999 Chevrolet Camaro

AC clutch will not engage when turned on, what could this be?

Ac has freon, and worked last summer. Now it will not come on. Could the lack of use during last winter cause this problem?

If the system leaked over the winter then there is not enough pressure in it to activate the compressor. I would start there.

    You have to recharge the system with coolent(not freeone). The stuff is sold at all discount stores. Refer to a service manual on how to do.

My AC stopped working. I can see that the compressor clutch is not engaging. My Freon pressure was very low so I added to the proper level. But still doesn't work.

You removed the fuse and used paper clip in the fuse socket? I'm just trying to understand what you did with paper clip?

Ac clutch and pump shutting off and on


If the pressure shot up you were connected to the wrong port. The low side should not go over 70 or 80 psi with a single can.
Could be a relay, a low pressure switch, or the ac clutch on the compressor. And it could be low on freon.

AC not working on 2001 Mercury Villager


AC will not run unless the clutch is energized. You got it to engage by jumping power line. Check to see if there is a relay in the circuit that gets power to the clutch. 35PSI at 3000 rpm at 75 degrees ambient is about right. How about checking the AC on/off switch? Get a schematic and chech any component in the power trail to the clutch.

My a/c compressor is only blowing hot air when I turn it on. I know a little about cars so I know it's the a/c but I am not able to find one on any site that may sell used or new.


If all you get is hot air there are several possibilities. The compressor is driven by the serpentine belt and is engaged and disengaged by an electric clutch mounted on the compressor drive pulley. With the engine running, have an assistant turn on the AC while you observe the AC compressor clutch. If the clutch engages, you can be reasonably sure that the system has freon, and the electric circuit is OK. If the clutch doesn't engage, which is the most likely situation, either you are low on freon, the AC clutch relay is inop, or AC compressor fuse is open (blown). A search of Google images will give you the location of the AC relay. You can pull out the relay, carefully remove the cover, reinsert the relay, and engage the compressor clutch by manually closing the relay contacts. Warning: do this only for a second or two in order to see the clutch engage. If the clutch does engage, then you are probably low on freon. There is a safety switch that prevents the clutch from operating if there is not enough freon in the system. Hopefully, this is the case. Go to Walmart and get two cans of r-134 and the inexpensive kit, and following their instructions, charge your system. If this is not the problem, you'll need a set of AC gauges and the skill to use them. Hope this helps. Dano

I have a Montero Sport 2003, last week I had Freon added to be prepared for the summer, I noticed a noise and ask the mechanic, he said it was the fan but nothing to worry about. I drove the Montero for 2...


If the noise started after you added the Freon, then it perhaps is your AC clutch. Normally if you have an automatic AC system, then when the Freon gets low, the auto system will not allow the AC to engage, only allowing the fan to circulate outside air. In order to add Freon to the system, the AC lock out has to be over ridden, in order for the compressor to **** in the Freon. This in turn engages the AC system so that the clutch engages, thus engages your AC system. The clutch bearings may be at fault.

Bruce did you check the freon. if the pressure is not enough the ac clutch will not engage. If it is the freon you may want to use a leak detector from your local autoparts store before wasting freon.

1997 Eagle Talon AC button switch blinks AC won't work


If the button is blinking, this means the clutch is either worn out, or the clutch is not engaging because of an electrical problem. Check the electrical connection going to the AC, does it look alright? Is there any fluid inside the connector? I would replace the AC compressor if the clutch persists to not engage.

You lost the Freon again, because you probably only fill up Freon last winter, you didn’t check the leak and fix it,

You have to check the AC belt, compressor, AC clutch, condenser ( see the small glass window to find out if there is some bubbling, if your Ac has bubbling, you need fill up Freon.

94 Saab 90 SE AC blows hot air


Hi Bill
Usually the clutch is frozen means you need Freon R-12, please go to the small glass window on the condenser to find out there is some white bubbling inside, if you have white bubbling means your AC lack Freon, but if you lost all Freon, the window is clear, so you have to check, I hope from there, you can tell the Freon level.
