A/C issue
Hi everyone!

I hope you guys can help.
I have a 2002 WRX. The A/C is giving me problems.
Here is what happens. I start the car and turn the A/C on. The A/C will be blowing cold air but after a few minutes the cold air will start to go away. The only way to get cold air back is to turn the car off and start the car back up. I tried to just turn the A/C off and turn it back on but that does not work.
Do you guys have any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Update on the post.
I noticed that now even when I turn the car completely off and start the car back up it doesn't seem to get cold anymore. I noticed that when the cars a/c is turned off for a while and turn it back on then cold air seemed to come back on.
Anyone have and idea on what the issue is?

probably low on refrigerant, or your compressor is taking a S**t

I'll vote low on refrigerant. Go to Target, Walmart or Napa. Get a can of 134a refrigerant that has a gauge. Follow the directions to fill refill it. It's very easy.

I have always thought that if there is cold air coming from the vents that it wouldn't be a refrigerant issue since there is cold air.
