Mine did that it was the electric fan for radiator under the hood not coming on until I would hit a bump. Check to see if yours is running at idle. Mine turned out to be a bad fan motor. If its running check freon level. Hope this helps

My parents' 2005 did this and it turned out they had to purchase a new AC compressor. This is a very common problem with the Five Hundred.
