Default Why does it do this???

My a/c when driving gets cold like it should but while sitting at a light or just at an idle it blows out warm air. I recharged my a/c thinking that would help but it didnt... Any suggestions???

After you get it cool in your truck put the recirculate on and not the outside air.

High humidity + high ambient temps + no air moving across the vehicle will have this affect.

Also, the inlet to the system needs to be kept free of debris. Check the cowl area and vacuum it out.

my truck is doing same thing. while running down road it cools fine. If idle the clutch is pulling in and out, i guess short cycling. and thus compressor is not running long enough to cool. so im sure its an airflow problem but not quite sure what exactly it is. i dont remember seeing a seperate condensor fan. ill have to check again. its been a few weeks since i looked at it. Hey Sobercrew any luck with the vaccum? Any help is greatly appreciated guys and gals
