2002 mitsubishi a/c blows hot air!

All of a sudden my a/c is not working...it blows hot air. I don't know much about a/c. I can hear the compressor turn on when I hit the a/c button but I also noticed my radiator coolant was below low... would this have anything to do with my sudden a/c problem?? My car only has 62,000 miles.. Any advice on whats wrong with it?

If your engine was overheating, or low on coolant, it will shut down the A/C. Replenish your coolant, and try it again.

Also, you can purchase a refrigerant gauge at Autozone so you can test the pressure in the A/C system. This gauge attaches to the low side of the system which is one of the two aluminum/steel lines going into your firewall.

There are alot of possibilities, so fix the coolant issue first.
