No Cold air through A/C

I think I need to get the A/C system evaluated because I am not getting cold air to blow through the vent when I want to use the A/C. It is either the outside air temp because I think the fan is just running.

I may be out of freon (which means I have a leak....right?), so what would that cost to fix at a repair shop?

I have a 1997 GMC Sierra, and want to know if there is anything I can do on my won before taking it to the shop?

Thanks

sure but not much you can turn on the a/c open the hood and see if the a/c compressor is on if it is you have other problems if it is not more than likely your system is low on freon and needs to be recharged and checked for leaks

Where should I look when looking for the compressor? I do not know a ton about vehicles and the stuff under the hood, so the more info, the better in my case. Either way, I will be taking it in, but at least if I can diagnose it, I might be able to save an hour of labor!!

Wink

The compressor should be under the hood. You can have the car running and some one turn the AC on. See if the clutch pulls in on the compressor. Thats about it. Id say take it into a shop

Guy said I need a new compressor. That plus labor and a freon charge is 650.00 so I told him NO WAY!

I will probably have it done sometime, but not for that price.
