A/C Compressor ?

I've got a 1989 Dodge plymouth minivan and when I turn on the AC it will work for about 5 minutes and then start a clanking noise. Husband seems to think it needs more freon. What are some of your thoughts? How much you think that would cost to fix?

Does sound like the compressor is making the noise but not necessarily the compressor's fault. You need a technician to put guage's on there and determine if there is any restrictions anywhere in the system, possibly a fan failure also.
