  • 150,000 MILES

I have kept up maintenance on this car since I've had it. Oil changes every 3000 miles if not sooner. I have had all 12 lifters replaced, recently replaced the fuel filter. Water pump and all belts including timing belt replaced.K&N air filter, NGK spark plugs and wires. Replaced clutch and flywheel. But right after my last spark plug and wire change the A/C compressor/condenser isn't engaging anymore. (Not and expert with a/c's so I have no idea whats going on.) I also haven't ever recharged the a/c's refrigerant. So this may also be an issue. There are no leaks that I know of. Please help!

Check the AC high and low pressures if its within specs-Freon could be low-start here

Ok great, I am taking it to Aammco this afternoon to see if they can diagnose it. I will have them check this out. Thanks for the advice. I just don't want them telling me I need a whole new compressor when it was working fine before I changed the spark plugs. But anything could happen I guess. THanks!
