Anyone elses AC kinda suck ??

So randomly we have had a couple days back in the 90s out here in northern california and i have tried the AC in the truck and for some reason on max AC and Normal AC it will blow cold for 1 min and then blow warm for 10 seconds or so then blow cold again , im thinking it probably just has a low charge and the low pressure switch is causing it to cut off cuz it seems to work good at idle clutch fan is very strong so im ruling out a high pressure situation .

I could be wrong but this may be a symptom of one of your blend doors going bad.. They are known to fail and have had to replace one in my truck as well.

Mine was doing the same thing when I bought it. Freezing cold at idle but while driving it would fluctuate cold not so cold cold again. The dealer charged it and added a couple of pounds and after a few days it constantly blows cold all the time

I changed the pressure switch on mine and it was fixed. Only cost around $10 so maybe give that a try
