    a/c air temperature

    I have a problem, or what i believe to be a problem with my a/c. When it is blowing from the vent it will get really cold for about 10 seconds, and then gradually warm up and then cool back off again. I can feel the car buck a bit to what I believe is the condensor kicking on and then kicking back off. What would or could cause my air to get really cold and then warm up and the condensor to cut on and off?

    Low refrigerant, high/low line pressure, or both.
    Have the system recharged, be careful of overfilling as it will cause high pressure compressor cutoff.
    Easy to overfill, total refrigerant weight is 1.15lbs max for my bugeye.

    Might want to have it leak checked first though, rather than fill it and find out it just leaks out again.

    I actually put some in yesterday, and overfilled as well haha, but i was able to take care of that, it seems a little better, the compressor stays on longer than originally, and being that this is the first car that I have ever had with ac i think its more of that im not use to it than anything
