Lincoln Town Car Adjust AC Clutch Air Gap For Proper Compressor Operation

(24 reports)

Checking and adjusting the AC compressor clutch air gap can extend the service life of the AC compressor.

A/C would shut down at higher speeds and would take 5 to 10 minutes to come on when I first started the car. Took it to a electrical shop and they found the air gap was way out of ajustment. They said this is a common problem,they adjusted the air gap and I've had no problems since. The cost was about $60.00. Word of CAUTION, I first took it to the dealership and they wanted to replace a valve in the dash that they said was causing the problem at a cost of almost $1000.00. Glad I got a second opinion. -
