2000 Focus SE A/C blows hot

I had it charged 2 months ago and then it starts blowing hot. I was thinking i had a leak so I bought a can from Advance with the leak guard...

anyhow, it DOES have coolant...what i did observe is that there is this wheel that starts and stops spinning...and when it spins the pressure guage on my charger can drops to zero then goes back up after it stops.

this wheel is in the middle of a pulley...the belt is continuously running.

Can anyone help?? THANKS!!

JEFF

That's the A/C clutch. If it's goin on and off fairly fast, you're low on freon. Especially since the low side drops to zero.

isalassiei - take it into a shop for a proper leak test/diagnosis. It'll be money well spent
