hate to say it...but it sounds like your compressor is failing and is about ready to give up,I just replaced my `06 Mazda5 compressor for doing the same thing as yours,shop around,$700.00 is about the best price I found,Mazda wanted $1100.00,hope this helps,but it is great to have the a/c back in triple digit heat!!!
