Not getting cold added three cans coolant no different
My question to you would be are you adding "coolant" to your engine (anti freeze or water) or are you adding freon to your A/C (tip off was the 'three cans').
If you are adding engine coolant, - that is a lot, 'three cans' - and your engine is still over heating, you should get your system evaluated by a pro.
Working on automotive AC is dangerous for the amateur. For starters, amateurs (like me) usually don't have the equipment required to properly evaluate the status of the charge in a automotive AC system. Over charging a charged system is dangerous to you and the equipment just as is operating a undercharged system. Normally, systems are able to protect themselves from operating under charged. Normally, the reverse is not true. Fortunately, we can only 'force' in so much freon.
You have done what you can at this point. It still doesn't work. It is time to go to a professional. It would appear there is a leak somewhere, a leak that you cannot detect, nor repair. Three cans of freon went some where! Your professional AC service man or woman has the equipment to detect leaks, evacuate the system in an environmentally safe manner, repair the leak, if any, effect any other repair that may be required, inject the proper amount of 'sealer' and AC lubricating oil, change the 'drier' and recharge your system to factory specification. At the end of this service, your AC will be in tip-top condition and probably remain there for years. Best of all, you will not accidently injure yourself or your equiment using this process.
That is my suggestion my friend. I hope you find this information useful. Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com
