Yeah, but not by you!

An automotive aircon place will have to do it. It requires bleeding the system (takes almost half a day) and then refilling with whatever gas your country dictates. (it's different over here)

If there is a leak, that's more time for the aircon guy.. they put a special dye in and use a black-light to inspect for leaks. Then they repair and fill.

How to recharge the ac on a 99 chevy blazer

Hi Kelea, I'm glad to help!
I see all the time people overcharging there A/C system because someone told them they need Freon, when in fact it turn out to be some other problem all together. But if your sure you need Freon then go to Autozone and buy a bottle of Freon the hose come on the bottle to hook up to the car. I'm sure if you buy the bottle from them they will help you fill the system. However if you live in the St Louis Mo area give me a call. 314-374-5218 Allen. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Kelea.

My ac is not blowing cold in 2001 saturn sl1. I had the cooling fan replaced and it blew cold for 1 day. Then I bought a recharge kit and the pressure was to high for me to add freon. I took it to the shop...

If you can turn the compresser with your hand freely ? then you can just replace the clutch...if not, the whole compressor needs to be replaced..

A/c stop working, had it check by someone, they told me that the fuse is ok, the a/c pump is working and the problem might be that a land cable is not transmitting signal, how can it be fixed

what in the heck is a land cable? if ac compressor is working, and kicks on when ac is turned on, you probably need a system recharge. take it to someone that really does ac work and have them put gages on it and see what it is doing
