Question about 2006 Chevrolet Equinox
I have same issue. I took to Chevy dealer they could not find problem (whats new) then I took to trusted mechanic.
They measured voltage at compressor and found out when idle the voltage dips below manufacturer specs, then when RPMS go up it gets more juice so the compressor then starts to work properly.
Chevy claims its made that way to extend compressor life.

Same problem with my 2005 equinox. Dealer replaced the compressor and supply and return hoses ($860). AC got cold on the road but not at idel. Now they say they want to replace the AC Expansion Valve for $400. They said part costs $243.98 but online u could get it for $20. Now the system has to be evacuated, part replaced, then recharged. I should do it my self. Only one stud holds this part to the firewall.
