2007 toyota rav4 ac not blowing cold air. AC light turns on,

Customer Question

2007 toyota rav4 ac not blowing cold air. AC light turns on, engine fan turns on, engine momentarily increases rpm & then idles normally. Checked Hi and Lo pressure and they are both equal (roughly 100 each) with ac turned on. Checked fuses and they are good. Thinking I may need new compressor??

Hi i, kevin so your saying that compressor cuts in but no pressure increase on high pressure side

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It appears to cut in. pressures are equal on both the hi and lo side

If gas level is ok and clutch on compressor pulls in then compressor is failing
