My AC produces cool air, but intermittently while driving (every minute or so) it will stop blowing cool air for a few seconds...then the compressor fan (or whatever it's called) kicks in (I hear a hissing sound) and it starts blowing cool air again. It's not detrimental right now, but I want to make sure it's not a symptom of imminent future problems with the AC.

Anyone know what the problem could be? And how to fix it?

I had the frion filled up all the way this weekend and it still does it...
