Hello, when the ac is off does the truck run normal? No warning lights on? If you raise the engine rpm does it keep running and does the ac blow cold?

Ok, What is the condition of the ac compressor does it look like the clutch is overheated or worn? Does it stall when the turck is in park and the ac on or when its in gear?
