I had the dealer fix my AC system last year. I believe condenser and compressor. Since then, it makes cold air, but the compressor has always seemed to cycle a lot more than it should. It will engage for 7 seconds at a time. I suspect I'll be replacing the AC clutch because it cycles too much.

I believe the dealer has overcharged the AC system.

I put a basic gauge on the low pressure side and static, it is at 90 PSI, when the compressor engages for it's 7 seconds, it drops to 75, then kicks off. This seems a bit excessive.

Another thing to note: If the temperature is between 75 and 85, the AC will not work. But if it's 85-105, it works great and the compressor seems to want to engage for more than 7 seconds at a time.
