CAR AIR CON CUT OFF DURING HEAVY TR

1989 Mercedes Benz 260e

Air Conditioning problem
1989 Mercedes Benz 260e 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 250k miles

During heavy traffic or I left the car idle about 8 minutes; the compressor cut- off( not cold) but there is fan and heater.

The mechanic told me is the climate control and also the compressour. I am reluctant to change it coz is very expensive- it cost about $2500 to change these.

I am thinking it got to be some temperature sensor or the compressour cluth something. Also, when I turn on the heater- I can hear the ticking noise; Like it cuts off and cut in. And also some water kind of noise.

What should I do?
