So now that it's starting to warm up, I'm noticing my A/C is dropping out here and there. I start up in the morning, a/c works fine all the way to work, about 15 minutes. At lunch I go home for lunch, and it sometimes takes a while to get cold, sometimes it's fine. Sometimes when driving it goes from nice cold air to icky warm air, and takes a few minutes to get cold again. Not really hot weather, engine/temp gauge not even up to 1/2, not using full throttle. Any thoughts? 8-)



Yes, I own a Ute. No, I won't help you move!

Low gas or high pressure will trip the pressure switch, cutting off the compressor. Is the comp. switching off when it goes warm? Give the TX valve near the firewall a few taps with a screwdriver when the A?/C is running, it might be freezing up. Belt slipping?
