Air Conditioning problem
2002 Acura RSX 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 110000 miles
About 4 weeks ago my A/C stopped working suddenly. I have a Helms shop manual for my car, so I followed the troubleshooting procedure. The A/C clutch was not engaging. I traced it to a bad coil (no continuity measured by an ohmmeter).
The compressor had 168,000 miles on it, and it wasn't possible to remove the pulley / clutch without removing the entire compressor, so I just replaced the whole thing. I had the system recovered at a local shop, then installed the new compressor and new dryer myself. The new coil measured 3.2 ohms. I took it back to the same shop to have the system vacuumed and recharged. They reported no leaks, and everything seemed to be working great.
It's now 1 week later, and the clutch won't engage again. I tested the coil again, and it now show (0 ohms). The fuses not blow everything work fine Fans, Blowers, relays but my car damage 2 coils. When I leplace it the A/C coil works fine for 1 wheek them bad coil.
Looking for input from the experts:
