Clarity on how pressure vs. temperature affects the K value?

Pressure doesn't change the equilibrium constant it only changes the position of equilibrium. Temperature does affect K. When the forward reaction is endothermic, increasing the temperature increases the value of K. When the forward reaction is exothermic, increasing the temperature decreases the value of K.
