Customer Question
We just purchased a...

We just purchased a 2005 SRX Cadillac, and the heat works,but no Air.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Have you checked to make sure the thermostat is working?

No, I don't think we have. I am writing this down for my husband.Is it hard for us to recharge it ourselves

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your SRX yourself? What have you tried so far?

No we just bought it. only 109,000 miles so shouldnt think the air is not working

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes it only has 109000 miles. we wanted to recharge the air ourselves, but we haven't checked the coolant level, or the thermostadt. It is a 2005, is there anything special about that year

yes you can recharge it by your self all you have to do is go to the auto shore buy a 12 once can of r134a, buy the one that come with the charge hose . start the car and connect the charge hose to the charge port under the hood . the port is a part of the a/c line . with the engine running tighten the screw on the bottle of r134a and wait for the can to empty then the system will be charge . after you charge you will have to inspect the a/c lines for leak .
