88 Pickup 22RE. Okay, after a year of not having my A/C on, I decided to recharge my system with R12. I did evacuate the system first! When I went to start my A/C the clutch started skipping, and smoke from the belt came up for a couple of seconds. After that the clutch started turning like normal, and still does operate like it should. However, I don't think the freon is circulating or the pump is not pumping. I don't know if this is because the clutch(or stater) burnt out and is not turning the pump? Or if it the pump itself?
Peoples advice is always free, but that doesn't mean it's always right!
