With it going down there may be some air in the system. I'd have it vacuumed and see if it holds the vacuum. I just went through the same type of problem with a customer's vehicle. Immediately after the vacuum let it suck in some leak stop and top it off with refrigerant. If someone replaced something like the condenser then it needs a negative charge (vacuum) before adding any refrigerant.

Take a little soapy water and pull the caps off the shrader valves, drip it in there, and keep an eye on 'em to see if they bubble.
