Hello, after running the AC how long until the vehicle gets hot?

At speed, less than three minutes.

Do you get any abnormal noises or anything?

I did send a phone offer because I think it will be easier to assist you. I would start the vehicle and let it idle. Turn on the AC and watch the compressor. It sounds like the compressor might be seized and it is causing issues.

I feel like you guys are more about the money than the help i'm going to terminate this conversation and do not charge my card because I do not agree with your help

Why don't you agree with me? I work do not work directly for this site. Communicating over messaging is difficult to diagnose vehicles. I have no idea what your expectations are, or your mechanical ability. I can't physically look at the vehicle. I rely on you for accurate information. What individuals want from us is different between two people. I offer a phone call because most people are happier to speak over the phone.
