    Smile 98 catera A/C problem...

    Hi Guys,



    I have a 98 catera and having an issue with my A/C compressor. On certain ocassions when the A/C is turned on for a while the compressor goes off and it's starts to blow hot air, and then after several tries (on/off) the compressor kicks back in. When it works the air is cool, took it to a mechanic and he said it could be the compressor's clutch that is not working properly. Any ideas what could be the problem?



    Thank you.

    Anybody willing to help? The a/c engages and then disengages after sometime? Has cold air when it works. What could be the problem?

    Difficult to say, I have had different A/C problems. May be a leak somewhere, since it is blowing cold when the compressor kicks in. Or (somehow I like saying this, maybe because that was my problem and I fixed it) thecontrol panel.
    Good luck

    Are you talking about the climate control?

    Indeed. But i would start looking at the vacuum lines and the A/C lines for leaks
