I added freon because my ac was not cooling the way it

Customer Question

I added freon because my ac was not cooling the way it should be and it seems to have gotten worse. All it blows now is hot air. Could it be overcharge and if so how could I fix the problem??
JA: Have you checked the coolant level? Have you checked the hoses for leaks?
Customer: I added two cans of Freon and some green fluid came out of the bottom of what I assume is the compressor
JA: What is the model/year of your Honda?
Customer: 2008
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Well I tried to fix the problem by adding coolant, but that didn't help any
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no that should be it

I can help you fix this problem,but you will need a set of a/c gauges to be able to see what the high and low side pressure are. Do you have a a/c gauge set?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I can get one
Expert:  kalamykid replied 7 months ago.

When you get the ac gauge set set me know and I will go over every thing step by step.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I have my ac gauge now
Expert:  kalamykid replied 7 months ago.

Can you hook them up to both the high and low side ports and tell me what the pressures are with the ac not on, as well as what they are when the ac is on with the engine running please.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I can only hook up to the low pressure side
Expert:  kalamykid replied 7 months ago.

Why can you not hook up to he high side as well?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
The nozzle at the end of the hose will not go into the high side connection
Expert:  kalamykid replied 7 months ago.

Can you send me a pic of the gauge set you are using as well as the end of the lines and the high side port on the car please so I can see what you are working with?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Never mind. I found the problem. Thanks so much for your help.
Expert:  kalamykid replied 7 months ago.

You are very welcome.
