Best advice is go to specialist and have the gas topped up with the right machine by weight of gas .To recharge using a weekend mechanic type can then start engine ,engage the AC then connect to the low pressure connection and the compressor will draw the gas in .

I'm not sure if the compressor is out totally, or if it just needs freon, but the a/c is blowing warm air and not cooling. The compressor was making noise, like it was working harder, but now, the...

Well, if shes out or low of freon, the compressor will not come on. Start buy adding a can to see how it works then, before you decide you need a new compressor. You can add a can your self it is easy. Buy you one with a reusable hose that will also come with a gage. The gage will give you a reference if you have enough freon in the system. Look under your hood for a sticker which will tell you how much freon it takes. Buy you a can with more Oz. than the system takes. So you will have some left over in case you need more later. Find your compressor and follow the lines out away from it. One line which is smaller goes out to the front of the car. The other bigger line should go over to the pass side and twist and turn into a cylinder at the wall. Look on this line for a port, will have a plastic cap which will screw off to access the fitting to add freon. The hose end will clip onto this fitting and you are all set. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

Air conditioning is blowing hot air

I would recommend that you check the fuse panel in your vehicle and make sure that the a/c fuse is good, then I would recommend that you raise the hood, turn your a/c on in the car, and then see if the compressor is cycling on and off. If the fuse is good, then there is a chance that your compressor is low on freon, so you should check this, and if it is low, then charging it should resolve the issue. The second problem is finding out where the leak is that caused the system to lose freon. To do this you will need to add dye to the system and see where it leaks. If the freon level is where it is supposed to be, then you may be looking at a faulty compressor, and will need to replace it, and with that you will need to recharge the system.

The air conditioning compressor cycles continuously, sometimes cutting off the engine, and there is no longer cold air coming out.

Try to add freon,it is most likely low,and needs the recharge,also,if it leaked freon,it leaked oil,so put some oil in it also,If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

Air cond. Compressor doesn't turn on Is there a separate switch?

Well yes, there is a separate switch. If the A/C system is low on freon, the low pressure switch will keep the compressor from engaging to save it from damage due to no lubrication. The freon helps with lubricating the compressor. Get you a can of 134a from the parts store and add a little to see if the compressor will come on. It should come on before one can is used. Now for the freon to be gone means you have a leak. So if the can gets you cooling, try to find the leak so you can stay cool.

Before you add freon to measure how much freon is clucht checks if the compressor is activated when you connect the air conditioner if the clucht not activated and have a good pressure in the system looks at low pressure switch that goes in the drier and that very often these are damaged, you also have to check the fuse and relay the compresor.Thanks

1996 cadillac deville compressor stopped, new compressor and dryer put on, but unit will not accept freon. Please help.

Sometimes, you have to start the vehicle, turn on the AC (Hi setting), and jump across (bypass) the low side pressure switch - to allow the compressor to start running and draw the freon in through the low side - make sure your fittings are correct and otherwise - Did you pull a vacuum on the system before you attempted to add refrigerant? I would highly recommend it - removes air and moisture....
