This type of issue really requires a hands on testing to determine what is going on. This is not a common issue. I have never seen a Expansion Valve really go on these trucks. I have seen compressors. Did they replace the receiver dryer with the compressor?

Would a faulty receiver dryer give these syptoms??
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

Any time the compressor is replaced the receiver dryer needs to be replaced. Failure to replace it could result in compressor damage. This is laided out in the factory service manual

I just called the dealer they are going to find out if they change the dryer or not
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
can a faulty dryer will cold on and off and cool while running??
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
can you send me copy of the page in the factory service manual so I can go to them in case they did not ??
Infiniti Mechanic: Jay, Certified Infiniti Technician replied 2 years ago

The receiver dryer is like a filter for the AC system. If the compressor fails, any metal or debris that comes apart would go into the dryer. That is why you need to replace that with the compressor.

Let me try to find it

Still looking. But changing the receiver dryer when changing a compressor should be common knowledge. It's like when you change the oil in the car, you change the filter.
