    3 months ago on a warm day i tried my 2000 air cond. the comp short cycled. i added a little freon and it stayed on. added just a little more and buttoned up.
    it worked flawlessly , COLD, till 4 days ago.
    started up and felt/heard a faint vibration with air on, none with air off.
    it also dissappeared when i shifted into gear/loaded the engine.
    a day later the faint vib stayed in/out of gear, air still cold
    2 days ago the air was getting warmer, not as cold.
    i added a little freon, no help.
    today no cold at all, heard slight squeal. not sure if belt or compressor.
    compressor turns on/off with air /heat.
    air temp varies from hot to cool/ambient so blend door seems to be ok.
    good hot heat, no cold with comp running.

    any ideas?

    Hope your a/c problems have been solved as you replaced many of the possible culprits. Tough job to do during high temps and humidity levels. Did you identify any freon leaks?
