and it only came up with two codes, one for the cylinder 1 misfire and another was a low power code for the instrument cluster. If it was low on freon
would there be a code for that?

It appears that way.
Couple years ago when I was about to run out of manuf warranty, I went to dealer to have evaporator cleaned as it started to smell a bit from AC..
SA told me that they will do the test for the evap leak as they've already replaced several with leak... And couple hours later, he confirmed that indeed evap leaks and it will be replaced - and this would be 2 days job because the whole dashboard and center console have to be removed.. they have cooling agent leak detection device.
So i hope that replacements are more reliable.
