I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.
Does the compressor engage?
What are the high side pressure and low side pressure readings?
When it stopped working, was the compressor working at the time?
There are many possible causes, so we need to start with checking the basics - pressure readings, refrigerant charge, whether compressor is engaging or not.
If for any reason, you can't rate my answer OKAY, GOOD, or EXCELLENT today.
Please reply and let me know why, so I can help more/better.

How do I check pressure and refrigerant charge and compressor ?
Expert:  Eric replied 2 years ago.
Ok, you need ac pressure gages to check the pressures. You may be able to rent them from Autozone or Advance Auto Parts. They hook to the 2 servive ports on the ac lines(will have either blue and black or red and black caps covering them).
For the compressor, with hood up, have someone crank engine and then turn the ac on while you watch the compressor to see if the front clutch on it engages - you will see it engage as well as hear it engage.
