2001 Mercury Sable A/C nightmare

For three months now and trips to three mechanics including a dealer, I continue to have the same problem. A/C works fine for 5-15 minutes, then the cooling cuts out, leaving the fan blowing warm air. I can shut the entire temp control system down for 15 minutes or so, then the cooling starts again for another short cycle. Plenty of refrigerant; one mechanic replaced the temp sensor, then replaced the entire temp control module; same problem. The dealer replaced a very expensive coolant manifold saying it was leaking. Made no difference. Now I am out almost $1000 and have seen no improvement. Dealer says I need to replace the compressor, which would cost another $1000! I have lost all faith in that guy.

How do I get this fixed without going to the poorhouse? The two electric cooling fans are working. This car has full climate control and worked perfectly for 8 years, but now it's a nightmare and I have to drive in 90 degree heat with the windows open. HELP!!

Re: 2001 Mercury Sable A/C nightmare

You have to get a qualified refer tech to look at your system. Sounds like a frozen T.X.
or something plugging the T.X. What are the pressures on the high side and low side
when this happends ? Do any of your so called mechanics know what they are doing ?
From what i read, NO.
