Q: Why isn't my ac charging or getting cold? I think my compressor burnt out. on 2002 Mercury Sable

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.

Sounds like them system needs some replacement parts now. Have the system diagnosed by an A/C technician to get it working properly.
Thanks, I obtained a replacement ac compressor from a doner car. I plan to swap it out and have the system inspected for leaks and clogs, then have it recharged and lubricated with the proper equipment.
