Hi my name is***** will answer your question the best I can if I have helped please remember to leave a positive rating
When the compressor is on and its not cooling we need to know what pressures are being produced it could be the compressors swash plate is stuck or broken just because the compressor clutch comes on and its turning doesn't mean its pumping and producing pressure, the pressures need to be about 30 psi or less on the low side and depending on the temperature outside anywhere from 120 psi to about 210 psi on the high side at idle. It could also have a problem with the expansion valve in the evaporator but knowing the pressures would tell us what's going on

I have since replace all fuses the a/c relay. I have noticed that the system will function fully, very cold, as long as the outside temperature is below 80 degrees. I have verified this four times. Does that information lead to any ideas??

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Outside temperature is 82 degrees, drove xterra running a/c for 30 minutes everything is working fine. Today at noon it was 90 degrees and no cooling at all.
Nissan Mechanic: Rick, Nissan Master Technician replied 3 years ago
I still need to know what the pressures are in the system, and is the compressor clutch engaging when there is no cooling, in order to determine if there is a control problem with the system or a mechanical problem with the systems flow of freon
