Your Air Conditioner might be low on refrigerant. If the AC doesn't cool down and had signs where it took a while to start cooling, you likely have a slow leak. It could be that an O ring wore out and started leaking, or a hose developed a leak. Rubber components tend to be the first parts that wear out over a period of time. A shop can confirm if your 134A refrigerant leaked out of the system.
if the ac system is very strong and there a lot moisture in the air the a'c evaporator core will freeze up and stop air flow threw the cold core only use the recuiculation part to cool the car down about 5-10 min the turn the recuit off
simply "adding a can"is a good way to end up with non-functional A/C. the typical system has high/low pressure switches that enable/disable the system. you need to be at the correct volume of refrigerant as specified on the sticker under the hood. i recommend using the proper equipment, evacuating, pulling a vacuum, and then refilling the system with the appropriate amount.
appears we have an Air lock scenario and you will need to perform a
the vehicle on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap,
start engine and leave to idle, turn heater on full and blower to
max. When engine reaches operating temperature watch and listen near
coolant filler, keep clear as gurgling and hopefully a boil over
should occur. Top up with very warm coolant and wait as it may do it
for heat inside vehicle if warm replace coolant cap but keep an eye
on temperature gauge as the ~Air lock may have moved on from heater
matrix/core so proceedure needs to be carried out again from COLD.

your fan motor is shot, motor has bad brushes replace it, if u feel its still not hot, drain your rad and but a 28 oz bottle of pine sole and add water till full, run it for about 20 mins. drain, run strait water, drain, then put anti frezz in with water, 50/50 mix or mix your own. it should clean your cooling system compleatly out.. do not turn heat on while pine sole is running throw it, gives of a bad smell.
The thermostat is located where the lower radiator hose goes into the engine. I've had to replace mine, and it took a while to find it. I found the easiest way to get at it is to remove the power steering pump (hoses attached) and set it over to the side to get at the bolts on the thermostat housing.
