    Make sure both cooling fans are running with AC on They should cycle on any time compressor is on. Also check the radiator With the engine cold remove the radiator cap and look inside for to see if you have any signs of clogging. You should see just the metal part of the radiator with no coating on it. Honda had a problem with that.
    Hope this helped
