Best Answer Mark helpful

When the ac starts at the begining.. the air inside comes cold for 1 min and medium cold for 1 min.. Total 10 min like this . Then no cold air.. only fan air works.. without any cooling..

I took the truck to a maintenance place. They said its not compressor problem.. something makes load when i turn on the ac... thats why it disconnects... they said maybe one of ac motors is not working thats why it makes load to ac control unit then the ac cuts off... Some said its programming issue to ac control unit I need clear answer from an expert in this feild please.. because everybody is guessing here

Not being there to check out for my self if compressor continues to run and not clicking on and off and system slowly stops working I would say the orfice tube filter is clogged and needs to replaced. This filter is in the high side line of a.c system ( small line ) special tool needed to separate line and a pair of needle nose plies needed to remove filter. If no orfice filter then it has an expansion valve that is bad.
