I was wondering if you have found the solution. I have been battling this exact problem for a year, I had to drive from TX to AL in Aug with hot air! I have replaced everything, hoses, clutch,switch, fan and compressor but still nothing. Like you said, in the morning or if it's cool a/c is fine but as soon as it hits the 70'S it's gone. Luckily the warranty covered most of it but it has been to 2 dealerships and a private mechanic. I'm getting very frustrated and very sweaty. My warranty will run out this winter and I want it fixed before it does so I'm not out $$$.

Unfortunately I never really solved it like I wanted to but when the temps consistently hit 100 degrees I relented. I ended up replacing the compressor and that did the trick. It still bothers me that I replaced something that actually worked. I know it worked because it would intermittently; except as described previously. I can't get over the fact it worked sometimes but not other times - it being the compressor. It either works or it doesn't in my book. All-in-all though I can't complain too much. I'm less than a thousand miles away from 230,000 miles on my 04 Liberty and this a/c issue plus a rear bearing are really the only two major things that have gone wrong (on third set of tires ... last two sets have been Michelin Cross Terrains). Good luck with the air - don't let the warranty run out on you (elevate up through Chrysler if you have to - before warranty runs out).

Though I had this problem for months of '11, tried adding new freon but didn't work. Then my neighborhood mechanic noticed that my fan wasn't spinning 'strongly' during a routine oil change. He told me that my 'fan clutch' needs to be replaced and i went on with it, and suggested if i could have the belt replaced too. After the engine oil, fan clutch and belt, i went for a test ride, 150 miles to palm spring, ca and back - L.A. Then after 50 miles into the freeway, my wife tried the a/c and it was working crazy ! Though i never mentioned the A/C problem to the mechanic beforehand, things just worked as in EUREKA ! "This mean 3.7L machine" least to say say gave me the shivers !
255,000 m, 5w/30 synthetic, HOAT coolant, rear diff oil every 12,000 m, transmission synthetic oil every 13,000 m. Dunlop tires.
Question : what brand of spark plugs would you recommend ?
