a/c problems

ok my a/c blows cold for 15mins or while driving hwy. as soon as i hit stop and go it blows hot. Opened hood and compressor clutch is off. Check connection on compressor, it has ground and 12v. But as soon as i jump the low side pressure switch the clutch engages and stays on when i reconnect the connector into switch. Already changed the low pressure switch. I opened up the clutch and did NOT find any shims in it. Could it be my compressor going out?

Check the amount of fluid. Maybe it's a little low and only gets pressure to turn on when you're at a higher rpm.

Wouldn't the clutch be engaged if the compressor harness has both power and ground to it?

Only engages when everything is working right if you have power at your clutch and its not running and there aren't any shims then its time for a new clutch
