Clutch wont engage on a/c

The clutch on the a/c wont engage unless you tap on it or rev the RPMs way up. we have had the sensor replace and we have replace the clutch. when it does come one it cools just fine, really cold actually. after we replace the clutch it worked good on all setting (low, med, & hi), but after we left the truck running for about 30 mins it stoped working again. the amps on everything is good execpt for the coil which we have and are trying to get on but its a tight fit and we cant get it to go on strait, any ideas?? please help

Hi there ive seen this before i think your problem is the clutch is just a tad bit to far away from the magnet that pulls the clutch in or the wires that engage the magnet are loose

How do i know my fan clutch is gone in my 2004 isuzu ascender

Fan clutch failures are most noticeable by
overheating at stop signs
in slow moving traffic
at high rpms with slow motion ( up hills ,cross country
pulling heavy loads at low speeds
reversing after travelling at speed ( coming home and backing into the yard)
on initial start up there is no fan noise that dies off after a few minutes
with the engine hot and idling , the fan can be easily stopped or spun backwards
using a light type revs counter and reflective tap on the fan and the crankshaft pulley at 2500 engine rpms the fan should be doing around 2000rpms
basically any situation where the fan is required to provide volume air flow through the radiator when the vehicle speed is sufficient to do it.

Car was driving fine I got off the freeway accelerated then the car disengaged and kept disengaging .would engage at low speeds then would not engage in any position reive the engine nothing would happen...

im assuming this is a manual transmission, if so you need to replace the clutch assembly. the clutch disk has worn too thin for the pressure plate to hold at higher rpms and soon wont hold at all.

High RPMs

Check all vacuum lines to make sure they are connected. Your problem may be in the transmission too.

Rpms will not come down when clutch is engaged

The most likely cause of this is the idle control valve. This can be cleaned with injector fluid or similar (for little cost), but may have to be replaced. Either way it is not too expensive, and can be fixed in less than 1 hour.

Civic SI 5-speed transmission/clutch

it depends on how high your reving the engine. if your at the stock a3 rev limit (6900-7000 rpms), between 400 and 450whp. the shaft the gears are on starts to flex and gears separate, causing minimal engagement, which rounds off the edges of the gears.
with a almost stock a3 tranny (stock + quaife LSD), 415whp and 9000rpm rev-limit, it took 1 good race at the drags to damage the 1st and 2nd gear syncros. after a few more races the gears were moderately damaged too.

as far as a good clutch, if you can afford it, i would recommend the FX600 from ClutchMasters.
