    A "metallic sort of smell?" Thru what fans - under the hood or blower fan to interior? There's a clue there better find out what that is. A slipping belt, and as Cornbinder said a slipping clutch (the compressor's.)

    A/C is nasty costly if it 'grenades' a compressor I suggests you have a shop check this time may early enough to save yourself a fortune,

    Not much to go on here, we need pressure reading while in operation and when it quits. Could be a slipping clutch or any number of things. Some of the new systems have different set points when the car is moving and when it isn't.
    Sorry but will need a lot more infor.

    I should note that the air feels really cold when running, and I have checked the pressure, so I believe everything is fine on the refrigerant side of things.

    2012 Honda Fit AC Problems

    When I start the car and turn on the AC, I can hear (what I believe to be the condenser) turn on, cold air will start coming out, and stay on when kept in park. When I start traveling it will either stop working after roughly two minutes or when I reach higher speeds. I can toggle the on/off switch and get it to turn on occasionally when going under 30mph, but not all the time. I noticed that whenever it stops working there's almost a metallic sort of smell that starts blowing through the fans. Any idea of what the issue might be? Thanks!
Working...
