it probably ran outta frion

Check that you have freon in the system (the little valve on the compressor that points up) Take the cap off and push the valve down in the center of the hole. Something should squirt out. It also depends on how much (ie: a little bit or a lot) If a lot comes out, take it to a certified AC specialist. If a little or nothing comes out, you may try putting some freon in yourself. Go to a parts house and get a can of freon with its own valve assembly and insert it yourself. First read instructions, attach the valve assembly to the valve you checked your freon from. Start your car, turn ac on high and turn to coldest setting. Insert freon. At first your clutch will not turn on, (the round thing at the front of the compressor that is not turning) but as you get pressure in the system it will cycle on and off until it stays on continuously. Check if your AC is blowing cold. If you AC is still having problems take it to a certified specialist. tata G

There can be a couple of reasons due to which the AC compressor of your car might seize to work. First of all check the wires leading to compressor and the fuse switch.

Why can oil leaks cause a engine to heat seize?

Oil leaks will not cause an engine to heat or to seize. A lack of oil will cause it to get hot and seize which is caused by not checking the oil level and adding as necessary to keep it full. As long as the engine has the proper amount of oil it will run just fine. The leaks may cause a mess, waste of oil and money, but they will cause no damage to the engine.

What is wrong if your AC blows cool for about a minute and then the outside shuts off and the fan just blows hot air?

It could be any one of the following: 1. The fan motor is overheating and is shutting down on overload, which will cause the compressor to shut down via the high pressure switch. 2. The compressor is getting too hot and is shutting down via the thermal overload switch. You need to determine if the fan and the compressor both come on at the outdoor unit. If you are getting cold air inside the house, the compressor is probably running. It generally takes longer than 1 minute for the fan to go out on overload unless the bearings are shot, then the fan motor could seize up and shut the compressor down on overload. You should have this checked by an HVAC tech.

It'll run solely off the battery for a little while until the battery becomes too depleted. The check engine light will most likely come on, as well.

If it does seize, your vehicle will either stall out, or it'll cause the belt to snap, which, if you have a serpentine belt, will disable your AC compressor and power steering.
