Just replaced the condensor, dryer, a/c dryer switch, and a/c dryer pressure switch. Refilled with freon 134. No leaks. Sometimes the car gets real cold other times only slightly cooler air comes out. Sometimes stopping the car and restarting makes it cold again. Any clues of what is wrong?

To diagnose the problem one will have to find whether the problem is a compressor control problem, a refrigeration efficieny problem, or an air mixing or heater problem.

Next time the cooling is poor verify whether the comp is turning. Verify that the heater valve is powered closed. After that the system should have its pressures evaluated.
