Is the compressor kicking on? Should be noticeable when it does kick on at idle.

Will it blow cold if you rev or floor the gas, or does it always blow hot? I'd put more freon in it and check for leaks. If you try to run the a/c for too long like this it may end up frying your compressor like it did with mine.

Lol, yeah, I don't plan on fixing mine till spring too. My a/c compressor still turns on and works, but it has a leak somewhere, haven't gotten it checked out yet. I just hope it's not a major component broken somewhere and that it's just a hose or something leaking.

if it blows air at least. Refill it with r 34 refrigerant, But buy the whole kit with a gauge that tells you if your low on freeze to high or got a leak.

Good luck

Try connecting 12 volts to wire on compressor- if clutch on compressor kicks on-check the relays hanging off radiator. If it doesn't it's probably the compressor.

Thanks for the information WineRed2.2CL. My A/C blows cool air not cold. The shop wanted $175 to charge it. Thinking of getting the kit and doing it myself!

Your evaporator core is leaking either because the tube that drains the water out of the car has fallen off or because the evaporator is cracked. Basically itís a big black box you can see if you look under the passenger dash that should have a tube coming off the front and routes the condensation out of the cabin and drains onto the road. Hopefully that helps.
