AC system leaks and/or a faulty evaporator temperature sensor can cause poor AC cooling. The failed sensor can prevent the AC compressor from coming on. Leaks cause a low refrigerant level, which reduces the ability to cool.

My AC stop working. It is blowing air but it is not cooling. I replaced blown fuse still is not working.
A/c needs to be recharged with stop leak refrigerant and new freon every year.
Haven't got it fixed. Was quoted replace evaporator -- over 20 hours labor plus part! Around $2000
we had our mechanic refill freeion 3x for the last 6 months. it doesnt work again.

Sometimes when you first get in and start up the car it can take up to a mile of driving to get the airconditioner to the point of blowing cold instead of cool air,
