EDIT: I have a new problem, the car won't fire when it is hot. It will turn over but won't start. It starts fine when cold.

Or could it be a complete dif... more

Whilst there's a range of possible issues, the most common is simply a fault with the clutch coil not engaging, which means that the compressor isn't spinning to give you nice cool air.
