Question about 1996 Ford Mustang
The Air conditioning compressor will only run for a few minutes then stops, it gets cold when it is running but shuts on and off after only a few seconds. it is on a 96 ford mustang 3.8. Freon is OK, I had that checked. If I let the car idel for a shortperiod, the compressor won't run at all.
Would suggest replacing the high pressure switch as a precaution you won't loose gas as there is a schrader valve under the switch. Would also check operation of condenser fan. When a/c last charged did you give it a good vac down to remove moisture as ice can form in the tx valve causing the same problem. Regards Eric

You said the freon was checked then the problem may be the pressure switch located on the accumulator. It may be faulty.
