JA: Have you checked the coolant level? Have you checked for a leak in the radiator?
Customer: Yes on both questions

Hello, it sounds like a lack of airflow across the condensor. Make sure the cooling fans under the hood are operating while the compressor is engaged. There could be a blockage between the radiator and ac condensor under the hood, grass, leaves, dirt. Make sure it is clean and clear. If those items look ok. Take a look at the ac pressures, there could be a restriction in the ac system causing the pressure to run too high and low and cause a lack of ac performance.
