Re: cutting out after a few minutes
Is the water supply (for supplying cooling water to the condenser) switched on? If not, there's no real mechanism for removing heat from the machine, and it might reasonably be expected to shut itself down.
Once you've got water going to the inlet hose, you might check that the solenoid valve which shuts the water off when the machine is turned off hasn't failed, and that the jet through which the water squirts into the condenser (if that's separate in this model) isn't blocked.

Mate I use to drive a freightliner and it cut out on me one day, I eventually got it started but cut out again after about 5 minutes, I rang a mechanic to come out and he found a heat sensor wire came off the radiator and that caused the motor to cut out... Hope I haven't wasted your time.......
could be thermal overload in motor its a motor protector in the motor
when the motor gets hot it cuts power to the motor when motor cools it
closes and resets age of drier counts some times you can take drier
apart and blow dust out of motor and will fix now if the door is not
closing tight vibration can cause door switch to break contact that
will do it too most of time motor or relay must be replaced
I heave the same problem on my Corsa B 1.0 2000, engine cuts out, and whe it happens, I hear one of the relay under the right side of the dash buzzing. After a couple of minutes, starts like nothing happend. So far I manage to find that the speed sensor is faulty, when I tap him the car stops. I order a brand new one, but I'm not sure that was the issue. I order also a Opel Tech2 tester from ebay and it has to arrive next week, then I can see the error code.
Compressor run current high. Check condenser coil dust blocked. Clean it. Check fan motor- if less rpm, replace capacitor. Best solution:Do water Service and then check. If still amps gradually increase, replace capacitor.
It sound more like a plugged catalytic converter. When you start the engine the pressure starts to build until the engine sufficates then after you let it set the pressure bleeds off and lets the engine restart.
ac pressures are ok, is the return pipe as drier sweating?, if not recharge system, if so you have a problem your fin sensor not reading evap temp, scan tool would be nice to monitor temp, but easy to get at , behind glove box, held in by a rubber gromet, also jump cycling switch on drier to see if it runs longer then 5 mins,possible charge again. GOOD LUCK RDJRP
