Default Air Conditioner problem

I have a 96 Ranger that the air conditioner continually cycles on & off. It started slowly. It would be cold for a while, then warn. I addad freon to bring it up to just under 45 lbs. Now it just turns on & then turns off seconds later with no cold air.

I replaced the compressor with a used one & get the same results. What is the fix?

All help will be appreciated.

Default Re: Air Conditioner problem

may have a restriction in the line, bad condensor, if the old compressor went out there is more than likley a restriction and just have to ask did you pull a vacuum ? when you changed compressor proper oil? so many variables but I think restriction without seeing it or any gauges on it
