This can be caused by being low on refrigerant. Before the refrigerant enters the expansion valve next to the evaporator, the refrigerant needs to be in liquid form so that it can expand and perform its cooling function. There needs to be a continuous supply of liquid from the condenser to ensure that refrigerant in gas form does not reach the evaporator. ...

If the system is either working fine or not at all then the likely failure is in the control gear for the system, the AC clutch would be my first port of call, you'll need an assistant: Open the engine bay and look for the AC compressor, it is one of the ancillaries at the side of the engine run by a serpentine belts. The compressor pulley has a clutch ...

Guessing. May be due to looping of 2 governors? Your car software tries to maintain the idle rpm. The AC temperature governor tries to maintain temperature, but some clogs in coolant path or issues with compressor leads to variable load on engine. Make sure AC system serviced once.

You're out of refrigerant Your compressor has gone bad Refrigerant leaks even if you have a sealed system. This is normal, don't freak out. You should get it refilled with refrigerant if this is the case. You can check this is the case by looking ...

I suppose you could do what Roadkill did with their rear-engined Mazda pickup and place it in the truck bed with some duct work (or better, auxiliary electric fans) to keep air flowing across the condenser. The problem, as @Paulster2 highlights is that the ability of the AC system to reject heat will be impacted by how much air can flow through the ...

The problem with moving the AC condenser is that it won't do the job. You have to have air flow through it for it to work. Placing it anywhere besides in front of the radiator would be like not having be it at all. My suggestion to you is to redesign the mount for you grill so you have room to mount the condenser, yet not move the grill. The condenser isn't ...
