It doesn't have to run 1 minute to work correctly

Bone dry, indicates that there were leaks

Hopefully they were repaired and the system properly
evacuated & charged. Whomever worked on it,
obviously never got it working at all.

1998 Isuzu Rodeo. My ac stopped working and is leaking coolant. Having a hard time finding the leak. Pulled the timing cover off but don't see fluid coming from the water pump.

Go to the dealer and have them put a dye in the radiator. Run and drive vehicle. Take vehicle back to dealer they will use a UV light and determine the location of the leak. I have done this several times to multiple vehicle and it works all the time. The dye will glow.

1998 gmc truck ac problem I put 2 cans of freon ac pump wont turn on it a few miles then it turn on maybe 10 mminutes driving

if you had to put 2 cans of freon in the ac system then you have wasted your money and time as there is a big leak that the gas is escaping from
ac systems will last forever and require no additional gas if the system is intact but as soon as it needs gas , there is a leak that has to be fixed first
problem you have described is most probably too much gas to start with and the high pressure switch turns the compressor off
then when enough gas leaks out the compressor will run until the low pressure switch switches off as there is not enough gas in the system

How do I repair the air conditioner?

first thing is to take it to an accredited ac service centre as you don't add fluid --only gas
it is added to the suction line of the compressor until the operating pressure is reached
by doing it yourself there is a distinct possibility that you will damage the compressor, over fill the system or do other costly damage
if you think you need extra gas then you have a gas leak which has to be repaired as a properly operating system will operate forever on the gas unless there is a mechanical failure or leak
fix the other problems first and then have the system checked.

Why wont' my a/c system blow cold air after adding freon?

Hmmmmmm, There is a lot more to AC systems sometimes.

Is the clutch on the AC compressor turning when you have the AC on? How much pressure is currently in the system? Does it have AC in the back of the vehicle?

My lincoln mark lt pickup won't blow cool air

My lincoln had the same issue, first it was the A/C compressor (original). I replaced it with another one (used) and worked for 1 month. Then back to hot air. "A/C experts" told me the compressor was out again. I took it to a Mexican auto shop, old building where the guy works alone and to my surprise...HE FOUND THE PROBLEM!! There was no freon leaks, the lines were freezing cold inside the motor, checked freon>>full. He then checked the filter. This filter is on the end of the line where it is crimped that allows the freon to flow thru. Im no mechanic so explaining what it is, forgive me. I can only show you...the line is silver ad in front of you by the radiator, and its the same tube that goes to where you plug it to add freon. There is a filter that was clogged up and prevented the freon from flowing. He removed all the freon, vacuumed out the system/line, and replaced the filter for less that $3.00. Added freon and his cost was $80.00. Thank God for honest people who work hard for a living. I buy the parts, he replaces and I continue to give him my business. Other expensive auto shops with fancy buildings/prices My Lincoln Mark LT now blows arctic cold air!!!

AC doesn't blow cold air.

I'm sorry you have had such bad experiences with the shops.
I would have stopped at the second one and forced them to fix it at their cost.
I doubt you will be able to find the problem yourself, but I understand your hesitation to go back to another mechanic.
I will be happy to try to walk you thru the diagnostic process but it may take a few days.
First, do you know if the system is full of freon ?
If it is full, do you know if the compressor is running when the ac is switched on ?
The first shop should have discovered the blown fuse once they charged the system unless it took a day or two for the fuse to blow. The second shop that put the compressor on should have found the faulty fan, and the leaking hose if it is in fact leaking.
So should have the third shop.
If the compressor was faulty, and the system had been empty for a time, the hose could have started leaking once the system was being used. The pressure on the high side is over 200psi when the compressor is running.
Let me know where you want to start with the diagnosis after you answer my questions.

How is the best way to recharge freon in the ferrari 328.? any common point of freon leakage?

All vehicles will leak a miniscule amount of freon from the seals throughout the coolant lines, you can use a leak detector additive when adding freon or use a freon gas leak detector to find any substantial leaks in the system by guiding the probe around all the components while the vehicle and ac are running. You could use a heldheld freon charger with a built in pressure guage provided you have the correct fittings, otherwise I'd recommend having both your low/high pressure sides monitored while adding freon and making sure your compressor is turning on and off properly as the high pressure side reaches its peak.

The heater works great but the air conditioner won't work at all

Check these items to narrow down the issue. HVAC in cars works on two different systems.

Air conditioning checks you can look at are

1) With engine running, turn on your AC on high as cold as it goes. Under the hood, listen for a clicking sound from the compressor. It should click on and off as the belt goes around the compressor every 15-30 seconds, or sometimes shorter or longer. IF this is working, then, the compressor is likely okay. However if not, then the compressor will need to be replaced.

2) IF the compressor is working, then it is either a low freon in the system issue or a leak in the lines in the system. This typically can be checked quite easily depending on the AC symptoms prior to the AC not working. If the AC worked, but slowly has not been working, or it works for a few seconds early in morning, and then's a low freon issue. The only way to check to see if it is leaking is to do some diagnostics by going to your local auto parts store and retrieving the proper freon for the vehicle as well as a freon filling tool. Shouldn't be too expensive. Follow the instructions on the can, and put one to two cans of freon in the system. The AC should work nearly instantly. If it goes back to hot within a day or two, then the lines/seals are probably worn or broken and it is leaking. The best option you can take after this, is to a certified AC repair shop as it will much easier and less frustrating for the home mechanic.

Hope this helps!

Sounds like you lost your refrigerant in the system, couple options here, 1. Take the chance its a very slow leak and just recharge it or have it recharged, sometimes vehicles will last all summer or even more, but keep in mind, if large leak you just wasted some money charging the system. 2. If it was mine, most repair shops can send a dye through the system and pinpoint where losing freon. Losing freon is the most common A/C failure and keep in mind can get costly if not fixed right.
3. Last but not least is the compressor, not as common of a problem as losing freon but still could be the problem, this is where taking it in somewhere that deals with air conditioning on a regular basis could troubleshoot this easily, but hopefully the compressor is not at fault as they usually run $200 or more.
