I had my A/C drained and charged about a month ago. It does not seem to be as cold when ideling as when i am moving. i read on a corvette forum that if there is too much pressure, as idle it can blow hot. the other issue is twice now at a short stop it is almost like the A/C stops. the fan keeps going but it is like the compressor stops. the only way i can tell is by the smell (got that moisture smell) but only happens for a few seconds, then it is ok again.

Turn your air on high and have someone hold the rpm's around 1500. Then look and see if you accumulator is freezing over. If it is then you have to much freon in the system.

Do you have a clutch fan or electric fans? If it's a clutch fan your operation sounds about normal to me. On short stops, do your RPM's dip and then come back up to the correct idle RPM?

I have a clutch fan, but I haven't noticed the RPMs diping at all, but i can check it out.
