Does it make sense that the compressor is possibly bad if the A/C always works fine anytime the temp is below approx 85F. It also continues to work fine everyday now for only the first 5 minutes when it is above 85 on my commute home. What could be bad wiith the compressor that would cause this temp related behavior? I was kind of hoping for some sort of a temp switch that would match the condition of the hot temps, the compressor clutch still engaged but the compressor not mechanically cycling. I figured if something were wrong with the compressor it would not continue to work the next day, later in the evening or whenever it gets cooler.
In the mean time, is pressure testing something I can safely do myself if I purchase a pressure gauge?
