while traveling down the road it blows cool air most of the time, but stop at a light or just idle and the air blows hot..i had it recharged at an a/c repair shop each year for the past 2 years.it cooled all summer last year, but not doing much of a job this year.
this problem happens all the time now

    Check to make sure the blower motor (fan) is running because it sounds as if it is not operating.

    Not talking about the engine cooling fan, but the small blower motor that blows the air through the small ductwork of the car's heating and a/c system. To test the blower, turn on a/c or heat and cycle fan blower switch through all settings low to high and feel if the air's force through the vents increases as you go from low to high without the car moving.
