ac compressor cycles on and off to circulate the fluid and lubricate the various parts. no - only when the hvac controls are set to a mode requiring a/c will it cycle. those are a/c defrost and bi-level. i believe there are heater settings that will not cause the compressor to cycle. yes and thats what i was assuming when the op asked about routing around the a/c pulley. with the hvac controls either off or on floor or dash vents the clutch will not engage and there will be no benefit to routing around the clutch pulley. of course it he wanted to drive around all the time with the defroster blowing and not have the a/c running he could put on the shorter belt - or simply disconnect the low presure cut-off switch on the accumulator which will prevent the clutch from ever engaging regardless of the hvac settings. .

manual transmission clutch not releasing ok heres the truck. 1999 2500 diesel 5 speed. 57000 miles. no prior transmission or clutch problems. yesterday it was 100 degrees out and i drove the truck on a shopping errand about 50 miles away. i left the truck running at several stops. i noticed it was becoming stiff or difficult to shift. i couldnt get the truck into 2nd at one light so i left it in neutral while the light was red i had to kill the engine to put the tranny in gear and then restart. it was not releasing fully as when i started it to dragged the truck forward with the clutch depressed. i got on the interstate and headed home. after driving the 50 miles it now releases perfectly. the fluid reservoir is full. comments suggestions could the fluid in the system have boiled from the heat .

as long as this is a factory keyless system you need to buy 1 new fob. with the new fob and your old one in hand the dealer can reprogram them together. when these are programmed the stolen fob will no longer work. it doesnt cost much to reprogram fobs about $15-$20 us. if you have an aftermarket add-on system you will need to get a fob from whoever made the system. denny one of the keys and one of the keyless entry fobs for my 1998 quadcab was stolen from near our house last night. i put a call into my dealer and they said they could re-key the locks and ignition they sublet this out to a locksmith cost around cdn $300 but they couldnt do anything about the keyless entry system. this sounds like total bs to me! cant a dealership reprogram the entry system and the one remaining entry fob so that the missing fob wont work anymore please someone tell me this is possible. ive checked around on car alarm systems with remote entry these are around $350...but then i would still have to get the locks and ignition rekeyed jusst in case someone decides to drive off with the alarm going. any help appreciated. m. calgary canada .

i have a 1996 dodge b2500 ram van 5.2l. ac gets cold but has a strange problem. i normally set the ac setting to vent. the problems is when i accelerate or tax the engine slightly up a hill the venting system changes on its own from vent to bi-level to defrost. once the engine smoothes out the venting changes back to the proper vent selection. does anyone have any experience or advice regarding this problem dan you either have a vacuum leak or the check valve has gone bad. -- if at first you dont succeed youre not cut out for skydiving .
