That is normal to and extent, the compressor will kick off during acceleration to allow the power needed, does it return to cooling after letting up on the gas peddle ? if so this is normal. air coming out the inside vents should read (temp gauge) below 60 degrees at idle, when the car is driving it should drop temp.

Only blows heat when accelerating


the ac core only blows cold air but You must be talking about the heater core.. In which case I would suggest that you bleed the air out of the coolant system as there is an air lock in the heater core.

Ac vacuum


There could be a vac tank problem or a vac leak.
Most american vehicles use a plastic ball or object as a vac holding tank. The tank or a vac hose can be leaking.
If the system fails, the default position is the defrosters for safety.

this is by design. under load, the computer will deactivate the air conditioning in order to take the load of the compressor off of the engine, thereby getting more power for required acceleration. the a c light will remain illuminated etc, and after you finish accelerating the air conditioning will resume normal operation.

Ac blows warm air onb acceleration


Sounds like throttle A/C cutoff. Check at what point A/C stops. Full throttle, 3/4, half, etc,... You can disable the throttle A/C cutoff. This is designed for increased performance. Check manual for your cars setup.

I think the air compressor is bad in the truck


If your refrigerant level is OK and the truck blows cold air your compressor should be fine, in which case the noise is probably coming from the AC clutch which isn't too expensive or difficult to replace. If it doesn't blow cold air, switch the AC on and watch the compressor. If the clutch engages, but the compressor doesn't turn, the drive belt will squeal loudly and probably start to smoke. In that case it is the compressor which is expensive to replace. Most vehicles have an AC bypass that will temporarily cut out the compressor clutch under heavy load. If you are going uphill with the AC on or accelerating heavily you might notice warm air coming out of the vents for a short period until you let off the gas.
