First thing I'm doing is replacing cabin air filter.. I can't believe how dirty it has been.. Next thing to do is to buy one of those AC can refill.. Fan moves fine.. Just no cold air.. What else can I do? Thanks.
Rent to Own of Madison,Wi.
Walmart or autozone 20-25 bucks.Stores don't loan out those meters for checking refrigerant levels.. So I'll have to purchase can with meter.. Hopefully that will solve the problem.. Considering I've never refilled in past four years, my guess it's probably running low.
As for rent to own, I'll pass. Thanks though.
Local repair shop wants to charge $90 for diagnostics.. Bad thing is that cost won't be discounted if I decide to do repair..Mine goes low so I just ad freon from time to time. But I have small leak. and can't find where the leak is. So I just add a touch of freon from time to time.I bother a hose with a gauge so I know how much freeform in adding cause you can add to much freon an you won't have cold air just like not haven't enough freon. Your issue could be a few things. If ur not mechanical then take to a shop for free estimate an they'll tell you the exact prb

Save yourself the $90, it's very easy to diagnose an a/c leak. I'd type out the process, but here's a video that should help. This is why they put uv dye in some cans, it's to diagnose leaks.Local repair shop wants to charge $90 for diagnostics.. Bad thing is that cost won't be discounted if I decide to do repair..
There sensors that works the compressor clutch that could be bad or a relay. I was told my compressor was shoot when I was having prbs with my ac an so I paid a shop to pinpoint the prb . first the reason my compressor wasn't kicking on was the plug was bad. so I went to junk yard an get a plug 5$an that fixed my compressor issues. Then it was leaking an fount out dryer was bad. So I replaced the dyer took to shop an had them vacuum system an add freon an now I'm blowing cold air an it's been soar hot this year so far.. Hope you figure it out. Its worth 90$ to take to shop to give you the real prb. You never know. It's holding freon, it could be a simple fix. Bad relay,fuse,plug or switch. You never know. Imagine nice cold air.. AweThe verdict is in. I was told the refrigerant level is okay and there doesn't seem like a leak. The problem is there is some kind of switch that is supposed to kick in every few seconds that helps circulate the refrigerant from compressor that is not working. According to the guy at the store, fixing this involves basically disassembling all AC components and replace with new ones. Parts alone cost $200+ and few hours of labor. There were two fans in front of the radiator and both fans work. But apparently just that is not good enough.
That means I am going to venture on working bar crowds. Hopefully drunks wouldn't get uncomfortable without powerful AC. Temperature drops down to 60s after sunset here in madtown this week.
