I was hoping someone could tell what to do. My A/c is cold as dammit for about 6 to 8 mins. then goes to just lukewarm. Cut off the A/C for a few mins. Right back to Cold. Just charged the system in aug 09. I am losing my mind here and its Hot in NC in the Summer

Figured It out! When the ac starts blowing warm open the hood and take a test light and check the plug on the compressor if you have no power then the high pressure switch is the problem. 14.99 at auto zone, that fixed my problem!
