My 2007 Prissy (my car's name) suddenly started blowing hot

Customer Question

my 2007 Prissy (my car's name) suddenly started blowing hot air instead of cold air
JA: Have you checked the coolant level? Have you checked for a leak in the radiator?
Customer: gracious i have no idea how to do that. is that the regular coolant or an air conditioner coolant?
JA: What is the model of your '07 Toyota?
Customer: embarrassed to say I don't know that answer... I bought her used in 2008... where can I find that info?
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Well I beat on the dashboard... really... I took out the air filter thing in the bottom of the glove box and tried cleaning it (it had some pollen junk in it). I turned on the car and the air and made sure the little fan in there was turning. Several years ago someone showed me how to do that
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Can I figure out what type of car she is?

Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

You probably are low on Freon, and need a recharge. You may have a small leak in the system and low refrigerant will prevent the ac compressor from turning on.

I would recharge the system first, and see if it starts blowing cold again.

I thought Freon "went away"...
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Yes, you are right, but Freon is easier to type than the word refrigerant.
