2012 ford fusion

Asked by Oct 03, 2018 at 02:53 PM about the 2012 Ford Fusion SE

Question type: General

Our mechanic told us the AC compressor is going out on our 2012 Ford Fusion.
My husband thinks that means it's unsafe to drive. My son in law (who works on
airplane engines for a living) says it's safe to drive, even if it makes noises
because it shouldn't affect other parts of the engine. Which is is?

If it's the compressor, as your mechanic said, it's safe to drive because it won't affect the belt. If it's the clutch, which is off when the compressor is off, it might affect the belt and cause problems if the clutch sticks and burns up the belt. Why don't you just call the mechanic and ask if it's safe to drive?
