A/C compressor clutch
Hello! I have a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire with 135K miles on it. The A/C slowly stopped working. A friend looked at it and told me that the compressor's clutch was not engaging (and showed me as well). He turned the clutch itself by hand when the car was off, and the clutch engaged after that. He filled the system with refrigerant and it worked great for about a week, and then it quit blowing cold air again. I can see that the clutch isn't engaging again. What would cause the clutch on the compressor to do this, and how can I fix it? I have been searcing the internet for hours and I can't find any info specific to what I am looking for.
Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance!
