The air conditioner in my Montego only blows cold air when I go over 50 mph or am climbing a hill. I had it serviced but it didn't do it any good. What is wrong with my air conditioner?

It could be the ac pressure switch, or a clogged orafice tube.

Most likely the orafice is plugged.

Had the same problem. The fix was the scroll compressor valve. Cost $30 and only two bolts hold it in to compressor. I got mine from Tech Parts Distributors, llc
Hope this helps someone.
