Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
The Accumulator only dries the air,if it even works,separates some oil going to evaporator and starts to boil off some gas before the orfice. So basically it never fails,forget that. The orfice won't be real dirty,unless you had a compressor or o-ring failure.
The short cycling is low ref.
The longer cycling is more heat or btu's over the evaporator.
So--Put the gauges on it and look at cycling pressure.
--Electronic Leak Test it
-- If you have to,pull a vacuum and recharge.
I'll bet your compressor clutch end seal leaks as well as a hose or two
It is 13 years old!!
