Question about Cars & Trucks
In the past when I started the car and had the A/C on it would take a minute for the cold air to start. Now after about 5-8 min. I feel the surge when the compressor kicks in.
You need to charge your A/C compressor. You can buy a DIY kit at most any parts store or take it to a garage and have them do it for you. Obviously it will cost more if you take it to the garage. The DIY kits have instructions that are usually pretty easy to follow. Just be aware that sometimes you need to purchase a kit that has a longer hose if your valve is located further down in the engine compartment.

It could be your low pressure cycle switch is going bad. Check the connection to the switch and it's is located on the A/C Accumulator. The other thing to check is the A/C relay and that is located in the glove box. There is a panel in the glove box that say's relay, there is three relays in there and one of the out side relay's out of the three is the A/C. can not remember which one it is. The middle relay is the fuel pump and the other one is the third break light. Switch the two out side relays and see if your A/C get's better. the other thing too is if the R134a is just a little low, and needs to be topped off. Good luck and hope this helps. if your going to try to recharge the A/C system your self, keep in mind not to over charge.

you have a clutch gap problem, the a/c clutch has worn and the electric magnet can not pull it together. take your car to a local repair shop and ask them to set your clutch gap to 0.014" inch. this repair is simple and should cost less than 100 dollars
