By recharged do you mean you put in leak sealer? Try a can of that if you want to save money for the short run. I have on occasion had it work like a champ. Also you may need 3 cans of freon because once leaked down there is a need for more than the norm. I keep a can in the car - if the AC works good when I have about 3 cans of freon in it - I let it go - when things warm up I find a safe spot and just slip some more in until I am happy with it. Be sure it isn't freezing either - I do this every year cause I am too cheap to pay 500 for a fixed AC system

Charge ac compresser it was cooling comp is kicking on but want blow cool

you have a leak somewhere. go to an autoparts store and get the dye kit with UV light and Yellow glasses. do a small recharge with the dye cannister between the end of the recharge hose and the low-side port where you do the recharge. follow the dye instructions and you should be able to spot where it's leaking. most likely it's a seal on the compressor itself, on one of the hard lines or a leak/hole in one of the lines, but, you will see easily where it's leaking if you do this.

A/C suddenly quit cooling, literally just quit, but the heater, and blower works. I haven't seen any leaks in the lines, but without a dye it is hard to be sure. Ran over an animal the night before, could...

I would first try a recharge kit. Get one with a gauge so you can see the level. These small bottles with a short hose and gauge are available most anywhere (Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target).

The ac only blows warm air, have recharged it with freon but it only cools minutes before blowing warm again, could find no leaks

There are special cans of R-134A with dye in them for detecting leaks. Most leaks occur around the fittings near the compressor. Recharge the system with the leak detector can or R-134A. There are also cans of R-134A with an additive to stop leaks. I would use these products to either detect your leak or to stop it. Best of luck.

AC not cool

Check the a/c lines entering the firewall. Large hose should be cold and small line warm-hot.If o/k, may have vacumm leak to underdash control. If vacumm is lost the system will revert to heat and defrost. Could also be the air blend door is stuck. Maybe something dropped down defrost vent on dash. If this helps Please rate

Save your self some money and just get the system evacuated & recharged, there is no point in putting a clutch in (IF) the system is keeping cool now. You never want to put a clutch in with out the compresor anyway.

A/c malfunction

You probably have a leak in the cooling system. The best solution would be take it to a garage and get it fixed because unless you are an experience mechanic you would probably have a hard time finding the leak as it could be very small.
