It is one of two things. The first is low freon which causes the compressor to turn off to keep the compressor from damaging itself when it gets too much load on it. This is what I think your problem is. You can check this by hooking up a pressure gauge to the low side port. You can buy a recharge kit that has the pressure gauge built into it from your local auto parts store. The second thing, and less likely, is that you have a A/C relay that is going bad and will eventually go out completely and you won't have A/C until you replace the relay. Good luck and let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Problem with 2006 e150 van. air cond. cuts in and out in all fan modes. iam getting cold air and the fan modes sound right. please help me, dan

You mean the compressor cuts in and out? All compressors do this if the vehicle is cold enough it shuts off, also if the pressure of the freon is too high or too low it will shut off.

Suspension deflates in cold weather

air compressors do not operate below 28 degrees you have to get them warm first I assume that your compressor is under your hood as long as you allow your truck to get cold or keep the air suspension your going to have this problem

Ac quits blowing cold after 30 minutes to an hour system is fully charged, compressor cycles

could be freezing up, (too cold) have pressures checked when it stops cooling. If you park it, a lot of water will come out as the evaporator defrosts. I suspect IF does have a full charge, then the orifice tube may be plugged.

Compressor turns, holds a charge but does not blow cold air even when I turn on the outside air it blows warm air

OK, this is air-conditioning 1-0-1

You say that i holds a charge, and the compressore turns, but does the comprressor cycle on and off, as this is indicating that there is enough charge, and once there is low pressure detected, it turns the compressor on, and when it reaches a high pressure, the compressor cycles off.

Lastly, when engine running and AC on, if you feel the 2 pipes going in to the firewall, one should be hot, the other should be cold ??? this happening ???

Air conditioner compressor seems to quit after 1 to 2 hours driving-blower stll runs, but cold air stops green compressor lite is still on, but no cold air-turn off ac for 20 to 30 minutus, comes back on...

Sounds like the air gap on the compressor clutch is to wide, when the compressor turns off to recycle the electromagnet on the clutch is not strong enough to pull the air gap and lock up compressor. The air gap is adjustable and should be checked.

Air not working. Compressor kicks on and seems to run and silver cannister underhood gets cold, but no cold air just really hot air. Does it only need refridgerant?

If the AC compressor runs it has plenty ( or at least enough ) freon, sounds more lie you have an air mix door problem, check on the inside where the door flap changes for heat to AC, if it doesn't move when switching from one to the other you have that problem.
But if the compressor comes on and cycles off fairly soon afterward you are in need of a recharge.

No cold air

There may be enough freon to make the compressor engage however not to make it cool down. Once the freon drops enough, the compressor will not turn on to prevent damage to the unit.
When you say it comes on are you saying the blower fan works or that the compressor is indeed engaging?

My AC went out suddenly and it turns out I got a major leak in one of the tubes in the AC system and thus warm air. When I bought the first can of refrigerant it didn't take much to get the pressure back where it should be. After some good advise I learned that my compressor was kicking on and off (you'll hear it cycle on and of every few seconds or so) and not STAYING on. Turns out because the system was drained of coolant I had to fill the tank a little at a time and actually go over the recommended pressure to force the air out of the line and get enough coolant in the system to kick the compressor on.
Turns out it was all for not...given the hole in my system it just leaked right out. I live in GA and still don't have it fixed; I was quoted $800 to fix it and figured I could live with it.
