Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora
AC blows cold initially but compressor cuts off after a while and everytime under load such as climbing a moderate hill. I turn off the AC then on after a minute or so and the compressor kicks right in but still cuts off under load. If cruising around town on flat ground or sitting parked for a few minutes, the compressor will re-engage without resetting the on/off button.
The car has undergone recent maintenance to install all new gaskets on the engine. Everything was disconnected and the engine/trans/front wheels were removed to do this. AC compression washer on top of the engine compartment had to be replaced after leaking all the oil twice.
I love this car. I just want to be able to use in the 100+ temps here in El Paso.

Check your coolant level and see if it is down. If you have checked heads you will notice your engine oil beginning to turn milky white.
If you want a more complete check for cracked heads, plug all spark plugs, and if you can get a coolant pressure tester, pump it up to 12 or 13 psi and then crank the engine over. Watch for water to spray out of one of the cylinders.

Look around the sides of the motor. Aleros are famous for faulty pan gaskets. Ours has been in the shop twice for this. If the mechanic doesn't get it put in just right it will continue to leak.

problem could be heads bolts . i put new bolts in put a little sealer on them . make sure your bolt holes is clean free from debris. put a lillte sealer on intake gasket on top and bottom where coolants travel. if all was done . drain engine oil in clean container .set it aside. take radiator cap off .you a coolant pressure rise kit .put a pan under oil pan with drain plug still off .pressure your radiator about 10 psi. make sure you have antifreeze in radiator and engine . when you pressure up to 10 psi look under the car if coolant comes out oil pan. you got leaking head gasket. if not .put oil pan plug back on . put oil back in car . check your freeze plugs also.
