This vehicle is not equipped with a cabin air filter. It is possible the system is just a little low on pressure. You can connect a can with gauge to the low side port and you should have a reading between 30-40 anything outside of that range is incorrect. Now I have seen an issue with the system freezing up causing low cooling. Check to see if the evaporator is freezing up causing low air flow. The evaporator temperature sensor will cause the compressor to cut out when it gets close to freezing, check the scanner and see what the temperature is. Check the voltage on the evaporator temperature sensor. It should be 0.5-2.0 volts under normal operation.
