Ac issue on 2000 tj

My ac just stopped blowing cold air and is only blowing hot air. It just stopped. What could it be? It has went from ice cold to hot in in a matter of 2 secs.

Leave it on see what the compressor is doing? Clutch engaging disengaging as it cycles? If it was a sudden stop I'd assume something is stopping compressor from coming on.

x2 on checking the compressor then.

Check PDC fuse 21, fuse box fuse 11, swap the horn and AC relay, and make sure nothing is obviously wrong under the hood (leaks, frozen AC line, wiring/connectors).

I found the issue. The ac clutch is going bad. You can tap on the clutch and it will work for awhile. Anything i can do besides replacing the whole compressor?

I haven't on my jeep, but I've replaced just the clutch on other vehicles.

RockAuto has the cultch listed on their site, so must be doable.

I called the local jeep dealer and was told that the compressor and clutch are sold as one unit

I'm sure that's their policy. Go with the dealer if that's what you want.

Did you visit the RockAuto site like I listed above.

You asked for info and it was provided.

Aftermarket frequently does things differently than factory. Personally, I'd give the Rockauto clutch a try, as replacing the compressor is a lot more expensive. You can't do the compressor yourself, since it involves vacuuming out and replacing the refrigerant, replacing the drier, and making sure the correct amount of oil is replaced. Doing just the clutch can be done in your driveway with simple hand tools.

Hard to believe the dealer made that mistake...

See your local parts dealer fpr parts, no need for a OEM component, be sure to ck air gap.

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.
When I see the quality of aftermarket I think OEM.

I've had great experience with Rockauto, as listed above. Local parts stores can be funny on what parts they actually sell.
