Very difficult if you do not have the proper equipment. This repair is best left to an expert with the tools and training. Done wrong will cost you money and you will still not be cool. Leave this repair to a pro.

My A/C compressor shuts off after an hour (sometimes longer) of driving on a hot day.

Look under the car when it stops and after the engine is turned off, do you see a lot of water dripping under the car on the passenger side? If so the AC evaporator core is freezing up and the pressure switch is defective. If scenario this is not the case then you may have either a sticking compressor magnetic clutch relay or the magnetic clutch closing coil is shorted when it is hot.

98 S10 a/c freezes up after extended periods of driving. Will resume blowing cold after shutting off a/c for a bit. Before it starts to affect the force of air coming out of the vents it blows very cold. I...

No, it is a refrigerant leak somewhere in the system

The refrigerant boils off at a lower pressure and
freezes the evaporator

Need to have a shop that does A/C work, repair the leak and
evacuate & recharge

Heater blows cold air

generally if your heater blows cold air, three things can cause it. 1: very low coolant (anti-freeze) levels, your car would generally overheat tho if at those levels. 2: car HVAC systems have a fin inside which turns to allow either your hot or cold air to pass thru, to check for this just turn your air con on high with the temp turned to hot, this will go cold if this is the case. 3: blown heater core. this is generally a costly repair on any car as they are generally installed midway thru assembly, so removing parts to gain access is a time consuming and difficult task.
All these issues are quite difficult to repair if you do not have the appropriate level of training. I would reccomend taking your car to your local mechanic. although due to the complexity of fixing a heater core ( usually you have to drain your A/C) this can be a very expensive repair.
i hope i have helped cheers

Not blowing cold air

Air vents may be blocked or your system needs to be recharged with refrigerant.

Catera 1998 a/c starts off with cool air and then gets warmer

I would have the dealer evaluate whether the radiator flaps and shrouds are all in place. Especially in Fla climate it is extremely important that the A/C condenser ( front of radiator ) stay at an appropriate temp. Of course that is not to say the EVAPORATOR doesn't have any faults. Hope this helps.

1997 Pathfinder only blows cold air

Sounds like one of 2 problems - Either - and best - sounds like an air mix door (or Heater control valve) is stuck in the closed (or cool) position - a fairly easy thing to repair, but sometimes a bit difficult to get to - some mix doors are near the evaporator box under the dash, and other heater control valves are under the hood (fairly easy to access), they it allow hot coolant to flow through the heater core, where air is blown by athe hot core to provide heat. The worst of the possibilities is that the heater core its-self is clogged and not allowing hot coolant to flow through, in which case, the dash (alot of the time) has to be removed to replace it. A good repair shop can actually save you a bit of money here, if they are familiar with P-finders and how they come apart, not to mention that an experienced tech doesn't have "left-over" fasteners. Bad squeaks and noises can come from an incorrectly re-installed dashboard, and often alot of time can be save as well - and we know time is money - godd luck and I hope this helps a bit at least!!!
