    Haven't seen any other threads on this.

    My 2010 2.7l AC sucks. If it idles for more than 10 minutes the air turns warm. It seems like the air only comes out cold if its running a 3krpms or higher.

    Does it sound like low r-134??? maybe condenser not getting enough airflow??? any ideas or anyone else have this issue?

    You won't catch me saying this very often, but in this particular case it DOES seem like it's definitely a compressor issue if it is in fact working properly at higher RPMs. It could also possibly be that a higher speed is compensating for a charging problem as well.

    Ice cold 2010 2.7L here. Mine is freezing in traffic and highway so there prob something wrong with your system. The 2009+ use the temp sensor in the front now to feed into the AC system for efficiency so now there more things to break. This is why they make a 3/30000 warranty so take it in. Good luck.
