Icon5 AC problem

My preludes AC has not work since i bought it. i decided to buy a can of R134a to see if that would make it work. Hot air still blows out and this morning when i drove the car there was a hiising noise coming from the glove compartment area. Could it be that i have a leak or is it something more serious. I really dont care about the AC but this heat in Texas is a pain in the ass. Thanks for your help.

5th generation. FTW!!

Re: AC problem

The hissing from your glove box is probably the expansion valve. One can is not enough if it was empty

I think it was empty. The can had a hose and when i plugged it in pressured air came out like deflating a tire. Where is the expansion valve located ? thanks

Re: AC problem

Check for leaks. Get a big bottle of it that comes with a hose and a gauge that way you know if its leaking

Re: AC problem

My friend used one of these cans to find the leak. It helps a lot if yuou have a UV pen.
