Hello welcome to just answer I am master tech and will be able to assist you today.

can you tell me if the a/c will start working after about 10-20 minutes ?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
after the car sits for 20-30 minutes it works again.
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 5 months ago.

ok thank you for that info.

what the problem is a failing expansion valve.

are you going to repair this your self or take it to be replaced.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Take it to be repaired.
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 5 months ago.

ok here is the service bulletin for this concern.

the a/c system needs to be heat cycled prior to evacuating the system

real common issue we see but I have seen a lot of failed expansion valves

so having the system service with a heat cycle will get the moisture out of the system.
