Default AC compressor not staying on long even on max AC?

My 07wrx is acting up a bit with the AC...the compressor does not stay on very long at all...maybe 8 seconds then it goes off for a while then back on...When the compressor does kick in, the air blows cool like it should. Also when I turn on the AC or when compressor kicks in it makes a quick squeak sound...

I changed out my crank pulley 3 years ago and put it back exactly how I had it. Worked fine for 2 years so I don't think its related...

Tips?

When compressor kicks in its cold, when its not its a bit cooler than ambient...Shouldnt the ac compressor be on for more then 8 seconds at a time when I have it on full blast?

Have it check for refrigerant level. Probably too low.

should run at idle for alot longer than 8 seconds. You need to check pressures.
