a/c Problems

I hear a hiss coming from the dash when switching between settings and when the truck is turned off. How do I fix this and what is it? Also, on long drives when using the a/c it sometimes is like the blower kicks off and air gets warm. The air doesn't blow as much, just feels like what is being pushed in from going 70. And lately I have been noticing when I run max ac and with hi on the fan the volt meter drops quite a bit? any insight into these problems?

Sounds like you prob have a vacuum leak controlling the air door. If you lose air flow and it gets air gets warm it sounds like the evap froze up. If you shut air off for awhile and then turn back in does it cool again for awhile? Side note my trucks hiss when changing vent settings that is normal but shouldn't be changing unless you turn knob

There has to be a reason it's freezing up. I'm not real familiar with these systems but work on ag machinery ac all the time. Reasons it could be freezing up drip hose is plugged not draining water out of evaporator housing orifice tube is having an issue lack of airflow over evaporator itself. Some systems have evap core temp sensors or a capillary tube hooked to temp control knob that senses evap temp and cycles compressor to keep it as cold as possible but not froze
