sounds like you have a slight freon leak.


Thank You,i will look into that possibility.

Sounds like the thermal expansion valve is "sort of" clogged. put a set of portable gauges on the AC. Ill bet the high side gets too high and the low gets too low. BTW if u had a freon leak the AC would NOT work at an idle.
