My a/c quit working in my 2001 Windstar and it just blows hot air now, but still kicks on. Since I use the A/C a lot in Florida I figured it just needed to be charged. I bought a freon can with the gauge on it. But when I go to check the pressure before charging, it reads over 100 psi.
I’ve checked it a couple times and with 2 different gauges.
I’d really like to save money by doing this myself but I don’t want to screw anything up.
I heard the pressure might need to be vacuumed out of it before it gets charged, I’m assuming that’s something I’m going to have to take it to the shop for.
Should I give up and bring it in to a mechanic, or any last suggestions before I cave?
