Default AC blowing hot air help

My AC is blowing hot air. I think it may have a leak. Is there anyone that could take a look at it? Thanks

Go somewhere that does AC recharging and see if they can put a dye in your system to see if you have leaks.

I did put some more coolant in a couple of weeks ago. What would that do with the AC? I did just get it recharged as well. How much does it cost to have someone try and find the leak?

low coolant will make your ac run warm.

^^ Best idea in the whole thread!
On a side note. If there is a leak in one of the lines, I have some A/C lines from a GC in good condition. I'm not sure if they are the same, but we can check.

Low coolent....? really?

Check your fan. If it turns on then thats not it. Other than the obvious. does it turn on, same with the ac compressor is it cycling?

Those are about the only things to check before you need to check the line pressures. and you need some gauges for that.
