Siezed a/c compressor or clutch
Probably just your clutch... The compressors give some warning before they just seize...
did the accessory belt start smokin' and threatening to catch fire?...I hate it when that happens----you'll be needing to get another rebuilt unit or rebuild the one you've got~
here are some replacement choices~
