    So i finally turner my ac on today for the first time since probably around September of last year... When the truck was warming up the compressor kicked on and off with no problems (like normal) after the engine temp was up around 180 the ac compressor kicked off and made a "clunk" sound, i kept the ac on and listened for it to kick back on and of course, it made the sounds again.... My question is of course what is it? or any ideas? the ac still blows cold and it never squealed.... if i let it run will it hurt anything? and yes i searched but didnt find this exact issue TIA
