just like the title says. had my air condition serviced and everything checked out it was all good. but it doesn't want to work unless i run at or above 2000rpm or get on it a lil bit then it'll work for bout 5 min or so and then starts warming up..when it does work it works EXCELLENT. i was just wondering if there was any sensors or somthing like that. that might be giving it a false reading on coolant psi. any ideas????
thanks in advance for all the help

Sounds like you need to take a shim out of your ac clutch. There's a bolt right in the center of it. Unbolt the coolant bottle to get a little more room. Take the bolt out of the ac clutch. Inside the opening the bolt was in there should be a shim or two. Take one out then put everything back and try your ac again.

I would try that first before you go throwing money for parts. The ac clutch is a magnet. It slowly grinds down when it engages and disengages. I went to get a new ac clutch, ask what the washers in the box were for, guy told me. I walked outside to the parking lot and fixed mine. Never did buy the clutch. Drove off and enjoyed my new cold air.

Did mine last summer, same symptoms. I kept the shim, because I will eventually replace the clutch. I have no clue if the replacement clutch comes with shims. Actually, I have no idea if you can buy a replacement clutch.

No problem. Glad it worked for you. Even if it only saved you 10 bucks, its worth it.
