Is my air con stuffed?

It was a great day in melbourne today, 33 deg, but in the car it felt more like 50. So, I popped on the air con to cool me down.

But, it didn't work Damn it was hot!

So the question is, is my air con stuffed? I had it regassed in March this year, it seemed to work quite well then. I don't have a cap on my high pressure hose, don't know where it's gone. Now I wanted to know if any gas could escape through where the cap goes, (posted this in general tech - apparently the cap is only to keep dust off it). Can anybody help? Do I need an expert to take a look? If yes, do you e series guys know a good specialist air con place in the eastern suburbs?

Or is it normal for the air con to be blowing hotter air than it is outside ?

Re: Is my air con stuffed?

id say that one of the seals is leaking which caused a small gas leak over time. an Aircon place would be able to pin point it for you. BTW my Aircon worked great today!!!!

Hell of a lot there, would prefer one that somebody has used before - hopefully they'll do a good job and I'll only need to take the car in once!

Yep, I got air blowing out, just wasn't cold. Anyway, if today's weather is going to continue for a bit, it could be worth putting it off for a month or so.

I would'nt put it off for a month or so,because as soon as the weather hots up again you will have the same problems,just take it to your local air con mechanic to have a look at it.
Cheers John
