Its probably the expansion valve. They can get intermittantly clogged up with particles of dirt and debris that are shed by the compressor and hoses particularly in an older system. I have had two cars that did exactly the same thing as yours. It was the exapansion valve clogged by junk.
I got too many cars!! Insurance eats me alive. Dave
