Compressor Clutch Issues
I had an issue with the clutch on my compressor not staying engaged and some horrendous noises while the A/C was running. I removed the clutch to find the bearings completely shot. Got a new one from Autozone for fairly cheap. Now I'm having the same problem but without the squeals. Tried all different sizes of shims and it will grab and stay on until I give it some gas and then it backs off and catches again causing the rpms to drop below 500. I've also had a multimeter in the socket while this is happening and the amps stay constant throughout the whole acceleration. Just wondering if the coils(magnets) go bad often in the replacement compressor clutch kits?
EDIT:: volts not amps dont think the amps change much throughout the system
