Air Conditioning problem
1996 Volvo 850 Front Wheel Drive Automatic

Dear sir,
My air conditioning is not cold if I drive the car at 120km/hour or more. Have changed the thermostat but it's still the same. Air conditioning is cold with driving below 120 km/hour. Any advice? My air conditioning mechanic also could not find the root cause.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

IN MOST CASES THE SPEED OF THE VEHICLE SHOULD NOT AFFECT THE OPERATION OF THE A/C SYSTEM. I AM ASSUMING THAT THE MECHANIC CHECKED THE SYSTEM FOR PROPER FREON LEVEL, IF THAT IS THE CASE, THERE MIGHT BE A COMPRESSOR PROBLEM. I HAVE SEEN THE COMPRESSORS OVER HEAT AND THEN SHUT DOWN. AFTER THE CIRCUIT COOLS DOWN, A/C WILL START WORKING AGAIN. ANY OTHER INFO YOU CAN GIVE?
