Mazda 626 ac fuse keeps blowing

Try unplugging the compressor then put in a new fuse. If the fuse does not blow, the problem may be the clutch on the compressor.

My 2003 suburban's ac cmpressor starts cluttering whenever it reaches 2500 rpm. How can i fix this?

The compressors clutch is weak so eventually you will need a new compressor. You can check a dealer for the cost of a clutch and the magnet behind it for that is worn as well. For the money and time a new compressor would be better to buy

AC clutch slipping on 2000 dodge caravan . How can I resolve this

If the a/c clutch is slipping it will need to be replaced. If it is slipping because the compressor is siezed it will need a new compressor, clutch, expansion valve, orings, system flush, perhaps a new condenser or more. However, Dodge has a recall for the compressors failing. Call your local Dodge dealer and ask about that recall. If it applies it should be free.

AC problem

Sounds like the bearing and clutch went out. Its best to replace the compressor, unless you got the tools and knowhow to chg. the clutch and bearing. If you just chg. out the compressor, the refregerent has to be drained out first, and then unbolt lines on back of compressor, and electrical wires, and belt, and bolts then remove. Put new compressor on in reverse order. But system should be vacumed be for its recharged with refregerent.
