Maybe its OVER-charged? Maybe a restriction in the lines somewhere? Compressor may be goin south? If you knew the pressure on the high and low side, itd make it easier to narrow it down.

Does it cool relatively well initially after the engine has cooled down completely? If so, this could indicate that either the system pressure is high or the condenser is plugged up with debris.

If you have not done so already, I would clean the outside a/c condenser and the radiator with your garden hose. See if that helps.
