I have a 1992 Subaru Loyale, great running car, but with an issue that is puzzling me. My A/C works ice cold, but then after a while the air starts to get warm at which point I have to turn it off then back on, which then starts the cold air flowing again. It is very consistent in doing this, but I am afraid the turning on and off to maintain coolness will eventually hurt something. Can anyone give me some insight as to what is causing this? Thanks!

The evaporator coil is freezing up due to hot ambient air temperature and by turning it off gives it a little time to defrost. Try running the A/C in RECIRC mode instead of FRESH mode. This will help with frosting up
