What was the reason for replacing the old one? If you replaced the old one because of the same reason, you might want to have the wiring checked and see if the new a/c is getting the power that it needs to run it.

Starter doesn't engage the flywheel


Well since you replaced the starter, I think I would load test the battery cold and then again hot. It could be you have a dead cell in the battery and it is not producing enough voltage to work the starter solenoid.
Or it could be a bad connection between the battery and starter, or battery and ground.

Have you checked the thermal protector switch on the compressor? If you probe the wire with a test light and the compressor comes on replace the switch.

1994 gmc sierra ac compressor clutch


refrigerant added is by allowing the compressor to suck it in (low pressure side or suction side )until the system pressures are right
What you describe is liquid getting into the compressor causing the high pressure switch to shut it down until the liquid boils off

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

New starter installed spins but wont engage ingine


The starter sprocket wheel is thrusted into engaging the flywheel by a big solenoid. That solenoid is integral part of the starter motor. If the starter turn itself but it doesn't turns the engine then either it was incorrectly installed or the thrust solenoid is defective.
Simple test: take out the starter, attach it to a bench, connect to it thew power cables from a battery (the minus one to the body, the plus one to the big connector bolt) then short the big connector bolt to the small one with a screwdriver - the solenoid should activate, the sprocket should be thrusted forward and the motor should start spinning it.
If that doesn't happen then the starter you just bought is defective, replace it. If that happens the starter was incorrectly installed on the engine. Reinstall it correctly.

Clutch broke on a/c compressor and installed a used one. took it to get charged but still wont work. they said the compressor wouldnt turn. or it may be a fuse but i dont know where the fuse for it is.


If you have no owners manual,can't find fuses or bulbs,
your done.

If they tried to turn the compressor & it is frozen, you
need a new one. Did you try & turn it with a socket?

Does the clutch engage when you power it directly?

Ac doesn/t blow cold air


There could be a leak in your a/c system. Does your a/c compressor engage when the a/c is turned on? To check, locate the compressor, its a big cylinder on the serpentine belt, you should see the wheel engage(spin) and disengage(stop) when the a/c is activated. If it doesn't move, then your compressor is bad. If it does move, then there is a leak in the system that will need to be repaired.

The AC compressor looks like this:

A/C clutch does noge engage


I would first check the Freon - is it up to pressure

Take belt off and see if compressor turns freely

Then check the Freon pressure switch - temporarily jumper see if it comes on - don't leave it run long - just temp test

Don't et the new compressor fool your thinking. Start from the beginning again
