It could be but I would have it evacuated and re gassed first, the recovery type gassing units can pump in more air than gas and that will give your symptoms (I did this to my wifes GMC, it needed oil so I evacuated it with a recovery machine put in the special oil and re-gassed it but the machine had pressure but it was mostly air so the a/c was bad, I filled the machine up with gas and re gassed the truck and it is cold at idle now)

Sentra AC


There's a 10amp fuse that powers the ac clutch relay and compressor. There are 15amp fuses that power the blower motor and the ac control switch. All of those fuses get power from the key switch. The resistor and fan switch provide the ground circuit for the blower motor.
I would want to know if those fuses are getting power, and if the control panel is working. You should be able to ground the blower motor and make it run on high, and that should not have any effect on if the ac compressor is running or not.
It could be a key switch problem in that the circuit is not strong enough to handle the load from the blower and the compressor at the same time.

Replace AC Compressor, Accumulator, Orifice Tube, and Hose Assembly


Made a video on how to change the AC Compressor, Accumulator, Orifice Tube, and Hose Assembly on my 2003 Ford Focus 2.0L SOHC SPI. Symptoms started off as blowing hot air at idle and then it just blew hot air all the time and Firestone told me it had not compression and needed the compressor replaced.

The ac in my wife's Buick Century stopped blowing. When I turn it on I hear a clicking sound near the engine.


On this model you may have developed a leak at the AC compressor and the system is low on charge, that would account for the clicking. If the system is low replace the AC compressor in stead of repairing it., it is accessed through the wheel well liner on the passenger side and from under the car. You can buy rebuilt compressors for this car on eBay for cheap, have on on my own Buick and has been on there for years.

Don't expect your AC to blow ice when the ambient temp. is 100 degrees and you are stuck in traffic. It's not going to happen...
If your compressor is weak and not compressing properly, efficency goes down. How many miles on your truck? They wear out, like any other moving part. I suggest you have a complete evacuation done with a deep vacuum, this will remove any air or moisture. Recharge to mfrs. capacity. Clean the outside of the condenser and radiator of all dirt, debris & bugs so air flows freely....Pressure sensors and temp. switches can be tested, if they are bad, replace them.
I hope this helps.

RCV Valve is causing this issue. Refrigerant Control Valve. $40.00 part but most mechanics will want to replace your compressor.

The clutch itself is the problem (and much cheaper)--replace only the clutch. You might check with a local wrecking yard for such a part. If the compressor was the problem, when the clutch engaged, the drive belt would either break or be thrown off.

Compressors do go bad, and if the clutch goes out, you are better off getting the whole thing replaced. Make sure to check for leaks. They are bad about the evaporator core leaking.
