My a/c stopped normal cooling, it cools only in the mornings or evenings and that has stopped for the worse. Whenever I put it on the engine rev and temp increase and it does not cool.

Do you
have the same problem?

Have the system leak checked, you may be low on refrigerant gas, do not just add from a bottle as the system must have a specific amount of refregrant to work correctly, to much is as bad as not enough refrigerant.
