Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

Sounds like your low on refrigerant, If you have dye in the system already I would check for leaks, if not recover freon and apply vacuum see if vacuum test fails, if not you have a slow leak somewhere and should refill with dye and check later for leaks,
