Get it looked at by a qualified mechanic, the on for few seconds is most likely a normal contition... In any event, you should not have to replace the A/C, only the clutch, but it is likely not requiring replacement...

The clutchpedal seems to work but does not engage and the fluid level reamains full


It is still a bit unclear what is going on here, when you say it seems to work, do you mean the clutch disengages? Can you change gears OK with the engine running and the clutch depressed?

When you say it does not engage the plate, do you mean the vehicle does not move? To change gears it must DISengage the plate, not the other way round.

Sorry if I seem picky, but I'm trying to get it all straight. If you can change gears OK with the engine running and the clutch depressed, but the vehicle does not move when you let the clutch pedal up, then the clutch is possibly worn out and needs replacing.

If the opposite and you cannot get it into gear with the clutch depressed, then the clutch throwout fork has possibly broken, which is not uncommon. Alternatively but less likely is that there is so much air in the clutch hydraulic line that it has become ineffective.

Why does my car make noise on neutral but when i hit the gas pedal it goes away?


You need to locate the source of noise first , it seems to noise of drive line only. Which consist of flywheel , clutch system and gear box.
1) In case you are having same problem with clutch engaged or disengaged position ( while throttle is on) , then there is a possible problem with the neutral gear ( if it is not abnormal but just high in magnitude than it was previously than consider replacing the transmission oil) otherwise get the gear box checked with a transmission specialist.
2) In case you are having the noise problem only when clutch is engaged than u may consider to refit the clutch plate and pressure plate , there could be a problem of torquing.

My clutch won't engage 1997 Honda civic


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

AC Clutch noise and vibration


An A/C clutch will not make this concern happen, more likely the A/C compressor is begining to go out. The belt on the A/C clutch Assy. free wheels (spins feree on the pulley) when clutch is not engaged. If concern is not present with A/C off this means the bearings in the puley assy. ok. Once the A/C clutch is engaged it locks the compressor against the spinning pulley and turn the compressor chaft and spins the A/C compressor internal shaft. If you hear a loud "screach" when you turn on the A/C it means the belt slipped for a second, if it continiues to screach it means either the belt is loose or that the compressor is internaly locking up. I wouild start by checking the belt tension (if not equipted with and auto tensioner). You can also remove the belt and turn on the A/C and attempt to turn the clutch/pulley by hand, it should turn with a little effect but should not bind or lock at times if that happens compressor is bad.

Hello, my car is a 2003 Chrysler Intrepid 3.5L V6. The issue is that when I engage my A/C, a loud squealing can be heard and only stops once the A/C runs for about 2 minutes or I switched the fan strength....


It is your ac compressor clutch.The clutch has spacer rings to make the clutch plates closer or farther apart. You need someone with a clutch puller/installer. When you pull the clutch plate off, you will see three or four spacers. Remove one and reinstall the clutch plate. That should do it.

1998 jeep wrangler dont shift into 1st or reverse


I will bet it grinds when you try to engage first or reverse. When this happened on my car, I adjusted the clutch and it improved. You need about a half inch of free play when you first touch the pedal with your foot. If you have a slave cylinder, (hydraulic clutch). You may need to bleed the system. With air in the system, you can't get enough clutch to fully disengage the trans from the motor.(Clutch and pressure plate) It's like you only pushed down half way on the pedal. If it's not hydraulic, it should be adjusted with wrenches. If clutch is fine, It could be a loose shift linkage. It would seem extra sloppy when moving shifter, It would just not go in gear, with out the grinding.Hope this helps. lbreen
