Compressor doesn't click on and off often and when it does go out even vent doesn't push air at all

This is not a problem with the air conditioning. This is a problem with the Blower motor, blower speed resistor pack, or the HVAC control knob on the dash.

Does it by chance work if you put the fan speed on high? Does it work if you put the HVAC controls on other settings besides AC?

Then I'd say the problem is in the HVAC selector knob. Pull the panel and see if something is loose or coming unplugged.

AC does not cool until 20 min or so into my trip. Then cools just fine. Also heat does not work. This is a recent problem. All worked well last summer and winter.
