I went to another shop and it turns out that there is no pressure in the system.

So I'm pretty sure now that there is a large leak in the system.

Thanks drivinfaster. I'll try to get access to a gauge set sometime this week.

I have an issue with the A/C system on my 1995 325iC.

Is this something that should be done with the top up?
