It sounds like it might be overcharged. Does the engine kind of stumble and almost stall out when the compressor kicks off? That's what I kind of remember any time I overcharged.
With regard to AC, I've found that you need perfect conditions to charge it. Like 70 degrees with low humidity. Higher temp/humidity and you wind up overcharging it when the temp comes down. And on the gauge you need it in the green while the engine is up around 2,500 - 3,000 RPMs. Back when I had AC in my B14 I remember it being much easier to charge than the B13, it's pretty finicky.

Subject: 93 a/c issue
Just recently got my '93 SE-R out of storage and back on the road after several years. Did a ton of maintenance stuff, new tires etc and also replaced the dead A/C compressor and recharged the system. It works great for the first few minutes after I leave the garage but then the car just gets warmer and warmer. When the compressor kicks on it starts cooling really well but it only runs for about 7 seconds and then shuts off for about a minute, then runs another 7 seconds and stops, over and over. So it never runs long enough to make a difference.
I've looked online but get conflicting info - it's overcharged, it's undercharged, the compressor clutch is bad, etc....I'm not sure what to believe.
I also keep getting a gas smell in my garage, the SE-R is the only car in there, nothing else that could make the smell. The Nissan dealer pressure tested the system and said there are no leaks. I don't know why it keeps happening.
Any advice is appreciated!
