Then it sounds like your ac compressor or ac clutch is bad.

Thats going to be the difficult part your best bet would be to just replace the whole compressor with the clutch to be honest with you.

Thanks, not what I wanted to hear, but with the miles on it, it would probably be better to switch the whole thing out.

I always change the whole thing the price difference between the clutch and the whole compressor usually isnt a whole lot. You also have to change the drier so they will warranty they will honor the compressor warranty. If the compressor is coming apart you will have to flush the ac and replace the orfice tube or expasion valve which ever you have. You also must balance the ac compressor oil charge.
