    It sounds like you have low pressure in your system Have you checked the pressure with a set of gauges

    If you consistently have low pressure, ( after you properly evacuate and fill the system) then you most likely have a leak. You will need to do a leak check. The best way to do this is with a dye check kit. Do you have any training in A/C ? This is a pretty technical area in the automotive world.
