Alright, my 94 GT has an AC issue.

When I bought the car the ac worked great( ok the guy prolly charged it up) now It works when it wants to.

I bought a gauge/charge kit and according to the gauge my unit is full. The weird thing being she was blowing cold today for the first time in a month I would say.
What would cause this?

Some of the ac lines had leakage on them and I cleaned them off to see if it will leak again but maybe my compressor or the *thing*/canister by the firewall isnt working properly?

any help is appreciated

I think that the "thing" that you are referring to is the "dryer." Is it a cylinder attached at the firewall with the 2 hoses coming out of it? All that does is remove moisture from the system, shouldn't be the cause of the sudden change in A/C performance.

I bet it's the A/C cycling switch... Perhaps the blower motor is dying.

And to clarify, the canister on the firewall is known as an accumulator or receiver/drier depending on the make/model of the vehicle. They do the same thing and it really has nothing to do with actual A/C flow.
