2002 Mercury Sable Q&A
2002 Mercury Sable Question: Why isn't my ac charging or getting cold? I think my compressor burnt out.
I recently tried to recharge my ac with the recharge bottles sold at Auto Zone and it did not get cold. So I added more. Thinking I may have over charged the system, I released all the pressure from the low charge valve then recharged to proper pressure level. Driving 30mi in 100+ degree heat the system did not get cooler, instead the compressor started smoking! And now sounds racketing. - RayRedhawk
Sounds like them system needs some replacement parts now. Have the system diagnosed by an A/C technician to get it working properly. - ProfessorG
