A/c blowing hot air with low pressure
The first thing to do would be go to your local auto parts store and buy an air conditioning recharge kit. Provided your vehicle isn't too old, they sell recharge kits that require no tools.
If their is a leak anywhere while you recharge, you will know.
Try recharging the air conditioning first, it is very simple and the kits come with simple instructions.
If there are no leaks, your A\C will blow cold air again. As for the pressure, if it continues to slightly blow air you may be looking at a new air compressor unit or a vaccum line. A new unit will run you anywhere from $200-$2000 dollars plus labor depending on the vehicle.
If the recharge works, at least you will have slightly blowing cold air rather than hot and you can continue that way until the unit fails.
