as long as the engine temperature is normal, i would suspect a clogged heater core, the dex-cool antifreeze is notorious for building up deposits in cooling system. have heater core flushed first to see if it makes any difference

The first thing i would check is all 4 abs sensors at the wheels.You can do this with a volt meter set on ac voltage and spin the wheel if it generates voltage at all on the meter its good.

I have and 98 Intrepid 3800 motor, and had same problem.
I tried a few things, but what finally worked was when I took the car for a complete cooling system flush, they opened the radiator and cleaned every single passage line, flushed motor and heater core,
It cost me about $100 but I havent had a problem since. I recommend you do the same.
There is a screw on the thermostat housing that is used to purge the air out of the cooling system. On your owner's manual are detailed instruccions of this procedure.

The compressor in question is basically a throw away.
My personal opinion is it's more trouble then it's worth.
Even after it's fixed you still have a throw away compressor.
However it is possible to repair it if the parts are still available.
Check out the link below for parts and diagrams for the compressor in question.
Hope this helps and good luck.
