If the A/C is "cool" but not "cold" this could be due to a couple of different reasons. This could be the case of low refrigerant levels. However, the A/C system is under a vacuum, so if the refrigerant is low, it's usually due to a leak in the system. Refrigerant should not dissipate of become low without a reason. So, if this is the case, simply adding refrigerant will will only be a temporary fix and the system will soon just be only cool again. The system should have leak dye introduced into the system and then the leak can more easily be found. If the refrigerant levels are good, than this can also be a case of a clog in the system somewhere. Very commonly on these vehicles is a clogged orifice tube. This is a plastic and mesh tube which tends to get clogged on the mesh part. So, this should be inspected and replaced as needed as well.
