Q: A/C air blowing warm air while idling

asked by on

The car when idling blows out warm(just a tad cool) air but, when the car is moving it blows out cold air . I had the system recharged but the levels were ok to begin with. I do hear the compressor turn on. The outside temperature is stuck on 50 degrees but I have seen thing go up to 130 degrees (even if it's cold ) but the A.C. problem still happens when the climate is not on auto mode(manual fan speed, manual vent slection)

My car has 141158 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
