hEY ALL,
So i made the mistake of recharging my a.c without doing my home work. I got one of those kits from autozone ( with the Guage) and followed the instructions. It started blowing cold air, but it really didnt kick in till i got on the freeway. I figured it wasnt all the way full. so I added another small canister of freon. this time i put the one for higher milage cars. Everything seemed fine until a couple days later i was sitting at the light and i saw a ton of steam comming from under the hood. I thought a radiator hose blew. I pulled over and saw, what looked like the freon shooting out of the top of the compressor. Did i over fill it and now its busted? When i turn on the a.c now its not cold and it has this hisssing sound comming from the vents. What did i do? :dunno::mad:

it seems as if i lost just about all the charge. it barely runs cooler than the outside temp and i have that hissing sound now.
