Customer Question

2012 scion XB A/C not blowing cold air. Added small increments of freon to it and it started getting cold but then pressure went into the red zone and it went back to blowing air (not cold, not warm air)

This is what the Scion is reading

Hello and thank you for your question,

The problem Im seeing is your low side is high and you high side is low, what happens to the pressure reading if you run the RPM up and hold it steady?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
The low side drops to the mid of the blue zone
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
the high side barely passes the green zone into the blue zone
Expert:  Ron replied 8 months ago.

I would try adding just a bit more Freon and recheck the pressures. Normal pressure on a full system should be right at 35 to 40 PSI on the low side and right at 200 to 225 on the high side. Post back with the results and we can work from there.
