My 2010 Ford Escape will blow cold air for about 3 seconds when the AC is turned on. I checked the compressor and the clutch will engage for those first couple seconds and then stop completely. I thought it might be low on freon, but when I went to check the low pressure, I got a low pressure reading of 100, which is way too high. My guess is the relay is done or maybe the compressor. Any advice?
