A/C Clutch replacement 2002, 4.0L 6 cyl
I thought I had my AC running OK. Now it will work a few minutes, blows cold air, then warm air. If I turn off the AC it start again blowing cold for a few seconds, then stop. When I put a gauge on the low pressure port of the AC, seems to show the compressor stops running as it warms up.
Is this a sign of the compressor clutch failing. I have the factory manual. Read the steps for replacing the clutch. Is it a hard job to do? Anything to watch out for? If I can I'd like to replace the clutch vs the compressor and avoid the payment to evacuate, pull vacuum and refil.
Online prices for clutches vary from 160 at NAPA to 69 on ebay.
