    it probably is just the clutch coil that has gone bad. They are on major backorder. Just bought a complete compresor off of a 09 150.00 from troys automotive with 14,000 miles. 1 our to replace and 30 min to evac and recharge. total investment 165.00. labor should not be more than 150.00 total if you had to pay someone. I do it for a living so I have the equipment to do it with. A common problem with nissan and other mfg with this type coil.
