Mazda Tribute: I own a 2002 Mazda Tribute, 3.0L v6. The a/c

Customer Question

I own a 2002 Mazda Tribute, 3.0L v6. The a/c blows only cool air when the vehicle is stopped or in idle/park. Once the vehicle starts moving the air changes to warm, then returns to cool once stopped again. In the past the a/c was ice cold. Two service station mechanics have checked the system and instructed me the system has no leaks and is full if freon. Can you advise?

does the compressor cycle on and off fast?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am not sure Mr. John, never had a reason to pay attention. How does that figure into the problem?
Expert:  john aka eauto replied 1 year ago.
that would verify if its low on Freon or not ...it sounds like it is
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is low freon the only reason the air is not cold? Could there be a problem with the thermostat switch that is preventing setting the air to max cold?

no it sounds like low Freon or its overcharged and freezing up..does it cycle rapidly?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will see in the morning when I am enroute to work. Thanks for the advice. It past my bedtime, got to go. I will have it rechecked to see if it is low or freezing up.
Thanks.
