it happens every time i drive without Ac

ac quit blowing cold suddenly, had freon checked-full. what can i check or do to rule out other problems before buying an expensive compressor?

after changing both, the Rav4 is still turning over, but I have to try several times to crank it before it will start.

I was sitting in my car with it running (about 85 degrees outside) I looked and noticed that the lights on the dash were on but the air was still blowing. I turned the key to the off position and tried to re-start the car, it would turn the lights on the dash back on, my air was blowing, the radar detector came on but the car would not click or crank it made no sound. I tried moving the gear shifter to neutral and back to park still would not make a sound. After about 30 minutes it clicked once while I tried to start it. After about 15 more minutes it was cranking but would not turn over or fire. Tried tapping the starter as best we could but it did not start it either. Finally got some jumper cables and after 4 tries and being hooked up about 5-10 minutes it finally started (but was idling hard and kind of shaking) and died 2 more times before I made it home about 5 miles away. Both times it restarted by being jumped off with cables. Since I got home it has started fine and have had no issues but it has not left the driveway. My husband wondered if it might have been a bad censor or maybe he got bad gas that clogged the fuel filter, I was told it was probably the starter. Just looking for advice on what this might be!

I'm trying to do 60,000 mile maintenance on my rav 4

Rav4 stalls while driving, today on freeway at 65mph. loses steering and seconds before total stall. Has new alternator and 3 new batteries in 8 months. Dealer newest battery/ECM reset that did not work, VERY DANGEROUS!! Total loss of control. Battery light flashes, goes solid, then 4WD and Brake light in seconds entire warning board lights. 3X this week while driving at speeds from 20 to 65 mph. Someone can be killed. Help no one can figure this out!!!

Today I discovered that coolant had leaked out from my rav4, I had been driving slow in snow for over an hour. I had the 4w drive lock on also, it went off by itself and I had to turn it back on. No sensor lights came on.
