When I turn the air condition on cool air blow through the vent engine is at idle speed but when I step on the gas or going down the highway air stop blowing out the vent but when I press on the gas the air stop coming out the vent so air come out the vents some time and some time it don't.

The mode selection is done through a series of air doors that are operated by vacuum. When there is either a partial or total loss of vacuum, the system will default to either defrost or on some vehicles, heat. Acceleration can also have an effect on the doors for the same reason.

Look under the hood for a small black plastic hose coming through the firewall. Follow it to the vacuum source looking for any breaks, cracks or leaks. Also follow any other lines that branch off because they may go to a vacuum reservoir (storage tank) and a leak there will cause the same problem. Using a vacuum gauge to determine if you have full vacuum at any given point is the best way to find it. You can cut into the line anywhere and splice it back together with a piece of vacuum hose. Find the broken line, you found your problem.

That's another whole different problem. It is likely low on refrigerant due to a leak but don't go just adding some because you can do a lot of damage if there is another problem. It needs to be checked out by a professional.
