Customer Question

i have a 1997 Mitsubishi Diamonte which everything works and looks perfect and it only has 70,000 miles. When i start the car it makes a clicking noise for several minutes by where the climate control is every time i start it for the past 5 years. This is the first year that the a/c isnt working and the tech at autozone said it didnt need to be charged. He said to have it looked at because it could possibly be the compressor or a blockage in the system. What would you advise because i cant invest a lot of money into this car?

1st thing to try is measuring the level of Freon / gas in the system

If you purchase 1 of those small AC top up bottles with a pressure gauge

and hook it up to the low pressure port thats welded onto the hard line and see where the pressure level is sitting

as a low pressure level ( or a faulty pressure switch) will result in the compressor not switching on
