1997 Liincoln Town car/air conditioner

When this car was purchased from its original owner about a year ago he told me that the air conditioner works periodically, when it does it is fine. Since we know the compressor does work it seems to me that maybe a relay of some sort is causing the problem. I can just image what a dealer would tell me if I took it in, compressor and this and that. Anyone have a feel for what might cause it to work sometimes and not others?

Possibly a relay, but, I would look more into the a/c clutch. It may make periodic contact with the compressor. It's magnetically controlled and is mounted on the compressor.

I am am lost as to what you refer to as "need some help, this is no way to ask?" Not sure what was in my thread to suggest a response like this.

Thanks to the gentlement that did in fact suggest looking at the a/c clutch, appreciate you input.

Yea, I'm not sure why hogfan responded that way either. Maybe someone else posted something and then a mod deleted it.
