Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I have a 1997 altima a/c problem I live in the hot dessert of arizona. a/c blow cold for about 10 minutes then turns to hot.

if the ac system is very strong and there a lot moisture in the air the a'c evaporator core will freeze up and stop air flow threw the cold core only use the recuiculation part to cool the car down about 5-10 min the turn the recuit off
you may have a sticking thermostat make sure you have enough anti-freeze in it and it does not have a air bubble in it give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.
not a home mechanic job thats for sure ,check youre pollen filter isnt choked up if thats ok then you need a specialist repairer because the venturi offrice is blocked which means that the high pressure gas isnt going through the small hole causing it to stay hot.must ge er indoors moaning
I Had the same problem, and is the compressor. There is a coil that when receives 12 volts, it moves to engage the clutch, but as is passes about 10 minutes, that coil stop working, so do the compressor, and the system starts blowing hot air. You have to take out the compressor and get to somebody that can change the coil. It cost in parts about 50 bucks, plus recharge the system with new refrigerant. Don't try other test, just go to the compressor put a tester and mesures the voltage at the wires after the security pressure valve on it.
