Problem with recharging the AC in a Ford Tarus...
I like to think that I have a little automotive mechanical skill. Unfortunately, I purchased a 2005 Ford Taurus back in 2005... Other than having to replace the altinato, I've had to do nothing to the engine except basic maintenance. (Oil, tire, belts, spark plugs, et al.)
Unfortunately, I'm starting to run into problems. (I'm going to skip the issues with replacing the radio because I'm pretty weak at electrical issues all in all.) Today I tried to recharge the AC. (It's not cold.) Ran the engine, turned the AC on max, and hooked up the refrigerant to low-side service port. Should have been good, but when I hit the button there was no flow of gas into the system.
So... What is the problem that I'm looking at? I don't have a tool to check the pressure in the AC system. (I'll need to pick one up tomorrow.) I'm hoping it's not a mechanical problem, as I prefer a cheap solution. But if I can't recharge the AC...
