Run your engine with the A/C on and watch the end of the compressor where the belt is. If it kicks on you will see the it start turning. if it doesn't turn and never starts turning you may need your A/C charged with freon. If the belt smokes you compressor may be locked up.

The air conditioner/compressor sits on the front passenger side on top of the fender. Remove the water reservoir and then you can disconnect and remove the air compressor.

Why does the air conditioner compresor on your car keep turning off and on?

Most likely, it's normal operation. Most vehicles have what's called a cycling clutch compressor. A sensor bulb detects when the system reaches the predetermined high pressure limit, and disengages the compressor clutch to prevent overpressure in the AC system. When the system pressure drops to the predetermined low pressure, it reengages the compressor clutch.

Why does the compressor run after turning off 1994 SSE Bonneville?

I would like the answer to this question also. AnswerWhen you say "after turning off 1994...", I'm assuming you mean turning off the A/C. The clutch on the compressor might be stuck, or the relay that controls it may be sticking. Try pulling the fuse or unplugging the compressor connector and seeing what it does. If it still runs, you've got a bad clutch on the compressor. IF YOU PULL THE CONNECTOR AT THE COMPRESSOR, MAKE SURE THE ENGINE IS OFF BEFORE YOU DO. Don't blame me if you get hung up in the belt.

Do diesel engines require higher capacity air conditioner compressors?

No. The capacity of the a/c compressor is dictated by how much heat needs to be removed from the passenger compartment and how big the condenser and evaporators are. As long as the car's engine is turning the compressors at the same speeds, it doesn't matter what is fueling the engine its self.
