I'm having a confusing problem with my a/c. When I first turn it on, it will blow very cold for a few minutes (depending on how hot it is outside). After a few minutes the compressor switches off and doesn't want to come back on. If I switch the a/c off for a good while (30 mins or so) then switch it back on, it will blow cold for a few minutes again before the compressor shuts off again. There are no leaks, refrigerant level is good, and I have replaced the clutch cycling switch (as per advice) to no avail. I have been told there could be a problem with spacing in the clutch. Any suggestions on this spacing thing (like how to check/fix it) or other ideas on the problem would be greatly appreciated.
