Quickman59 is an unknown quantity at this point
I just had my A/C serviced at the dealership. They said there are no leaks and that the A/C normally takes 3 to 5 minutes to "stabelize" the system before the air blows cold. I'm having a hard time believing this... I have an 8 year old Honda Civic and the A/C blows cold almost immediately. I'm thinking of taking it back to the dealer.

Can anyone tell me if the Dealer is blowing "Hot" air?

You might just have a crappy/leaky ac compressor. Or your belt on the A/C is going bad and slipping, or the tensioner isn't tensioning enough (sorry, i'm tired that's the best I can do)
