Question about 2003 Toyota Matrix
My A/C has stopped blowing cold air. I have changed the filter, but not sure if it needs charged, can't find anything on it in the manual.
To perform a "backyard" check for a charge, assuming that you do not have A/C gauges: Open the hood. Look for aluminum tubes going thru the firewall. Somewhere, on each tube, there will be a grey cap. One has an "H" on it, the other, an "L". Remove the "L" cap, and, using a suitable pointy tool, depress the center of the little valve thing (it is just like a bicycle tire valve). Do NOT put your face over it. Depress the center of the valve for less than 1 second. If anything like gas pressure shoots out, you have some charge in the system. Nothing comes out, you have a leak somewhere.
