Oh, man. This is a loooong story. Too many variables. I had a similar issue on my e46 and created this topic:

Even though it is for e46, most of the info is still relevant to e39.

Start with checking pressure in high and low ports using DECENT gauges. DO NOT ADD ANY FREON FROM EASY-TO-SCREW-UP-YOUR-COMPRESSOR kits from Walmart / Autozone / Advance / etc!
