My AC is shouting off by its self, if you turn it off wait 5 to 10 minutes them back on it will blow cold air. But it will do the same thing again. I just had it check out and the system check out a couple of weeks ago What do you thing the problem is
Expert:  David Gieswein replied 5 months ago.

There are a couple of problem areas on that series truck. One of the areas is the spot in between the radiator and the condenser. It gets clogged with debris and raises the pressure. The other is the fan clutch. Depending on what year model you have, you will have a hydraulic or electrical fan clutch. I replaced a lot of clutches. However, the only way you can tell they are bad is hooking it to the dealership's witech. They can compare the rpms with the fans rpms and tell if it is spooling up or dropping off. The last area you need to check is the evaporator core. They are bad about clogging up. Just need to drop the blower motor. If it is dirty, get a water hose with a spray nozzle and wash to core out. You will see water running out under the truck coming out from the evaporator drain.

Another simple check you can do is get some dawn dish soap and test the Schrader valves. Simply unscrew the caps on both valves and fill the hole up with dish soap. If there is a leaking Schrader valve you will see bubbles. Then wash the soap out and have the Freon recovered so you can change the valve(s).
