why does air conditioning work for a long while then stops and after turning motor off for awhile it starts working again?

Asked by Aug 26, 2014 at 12:27 PM about the 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4WD Crew Cab SB

Question type: General

1 Answer

Evaporator may be icing up and prevent air flow. I have seen one completely covered with ice on a humid day. It thaws and works again
