1999 beetle AC... Ac works maybe 1 in 10 times for about 10 minutes then stops. Checked 134a level (good)... When AC is turned on, aux fan turns on, clutch engages on compressor and 134a pressure drops slightly, but not to normal operating range. When the few times it works, 134a pressure drops to normal range.

System is short cycling. A sign of low refrigerant. Post the numbers you get from the gauges for me if you would. Two readings. One at idle and the second at around 1200 rpm.
Thanks -Ned

My 1999 mazda 626 6 cylinder overheats if traffic slows down for very long, stop for a train, etc. At other times the air coming out of the vents is very cold. I have added coolant several times.


Your radiator fan is probably failed. Pop open hood, watch temp rise, once past "normal " level teh fan should turn on. If not, you need to trouble shoot the rad fan. There should be heavy duty fuses and relays under the hood in an electrical distribution box. You should consult the owners manual or chart on the box lid. Of course the fan maybe bad itself. You can also try - turn on the AC, this will activate the 2nd (booster) fan, and should help prevent serious overheating but wont fix the underlying problem.
Good luck

low 134a coolant, you may have a pin hole leak, or just need topped up on 134a. wallmart or most auto parts stores sell 134a kits. also check your rad coolant.
