If the AC clutch is shutting off when it should not then it is low on freon/R134a and a recharge should solve the problem.

how do i recharge it
Chevy Mechanic: Neal, Chevy Mechanic replied 8 years ago
Most part store sell a do it yourself kit that is pretty inexpensive. But it would not be much more to have it charged up by a shop and they might be able to tell you if it is leaking or if there are other issues.
