`96 ZR2 Air conditioning not working
I was wondering if any of you might know why my AC quit working in my truck. I have hardly ever used it in the past but now that it's hot and about 90+ % humidity I am getting tired of dealing with the warm/hot air that blows through the vents. Driving down the highway at 70 or 75 MPH with both windows down hurts your ears after a while.
The compressor turns on when I turn the controls to AC. Even with the AC on MAX and the fan on HI, it's still warm or hot air (hot if the truck has been sitting out in the sun and it's hot inside).
I would have to think that I need a recharge... but how did I lose all the refrigerant in the first place? The AC worked as late as last fall. The system is R134A, right? Can I recharge the system myself (I see cans of R134A in the auto stores all the time) or should I have it done? How much refrigerant would I need?
Sorry for all the questions, never done this before.
