Ac won't blow at all or just not blowing cold?

If not blowing at all look under passenger side dash. You will see the box where the blower motor is located. Tap on this box. If blower then starts its a blower motor issue. Inspect or replace blower motor. If blowing but just not cold check to see that electric radiator fan is coming on. If not it probably needs to be replaced. Check for voltage at fan motor. When mine went bad I could give it a tap on back of fan motor then it would start. Hope this helps. Oh and also on these models some owners have an issue with the damper door mech breaking in the air duct work.

I turn the ac on and off and eventually it will just start blowing cold. Then it works great.

Ok check the electric radiator fan. It's probably not coming right on as it should.
