Best Answer
A/C recharge

A can of refrigerant with connector and gauge can be purchased at any auto parts place. It should be very easy to do, the connector will only fit the proper fitting on the low pressure side, which on mine is connected directly to my ac compressor. However, the problem I have had is that a/c clutch and compressor has to be engaged to put contents of can into system and if the low pressure switch has shutdown the system it will not accept any charge. So I have had to get it done by a mechanic with the high dollar a/c systems. I thought I had bypassed the low pressure switch before but must not be the right one because I have had no luck doing this. Mine has been in the shop 3 times and we have replaced almost everything and can not seem to find the leak.
