Default how often do compressors go bad?

My trucks compressor i think is takin a shit, i takes minutes for it to kick on and the cycles of on and off are random. Is the clutch in it bad or is that too rare. Idk if i should just get a rebuilt one and that would solve it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Default Re: how often do compressors go bad?

The dealer told me that its normal for the compressor to cycle, this keeps it from siezing up, however if it dosn't come on for a few minuits you might check your freon.
