There is a coil in the ac compressor that engages the ac clutch but over time the gap between the clutch and the coil becomes wider which causes it not to engage the ac clutch correctly. Two shims control the length of the gap and they either need to be filed down or one or both need to be removed as the ac coil gets weaker over time. Look in the chilton's manual about checking the ac clutch gap.
