I think I added "liquid" Freon to my Cars A/C, what do i do?
I think I made a mistake. About 2 weeks ago I added some Freon to my 2000 civic EX. Lately, as I’ve been driving I’ve started to feel some slight jerking in the car. Like it would lose a little power and then gain it back. This would only happen when the A/C was on. When it is off the car drives smoothly.
After a lot of researching online I noticed that they say not to tip the can upside down when charging the A/C because liquid might get in the A/C Condenser. Sadly I fear I did get liquid in the A/C condenser.
Is there a way to fix this issue before it destroys the condenser like do an “evacuation and recharge” of the A/C?

Needs to be checked for a freon leak, best way to do this is to recharge and add dye, with a uv light you will be able to fine the leak, most auto parts sell the dye, and the flash light you will need to fine the leak, good luck.
I HAD THAT PROBLEM WITH MY 1994 CHEVY LUMINA VAN. I WAS TOLED IT WAS MY TRANSMISSION. BUT I CHANGED THE COMPUTER WERE I BOUGHT THE FIRST ONE (auto zone) AND CHANGED GAS TO SHELL, THEY HAVE A NEW ADDITIVE IN THEIR GASOLINE AND IT RAN GREAT. THAT WAS A YEAR AGO AND IS STILL RUNNING NOW BETTER THAN EVER.
Check fluid and make sure it filled enough,(make sure that its actually power steering fluid in thereand not something else added by mistake for ex. antifreeze etc) make sure there are no leaks. Check power steering belt and and make sure its tight NOT loose or slipping. From personal experience with these vehicle you MOST likely cause of this problem if all the items above are GOOD is a bad power steering pump.
