[DML] Re: AC Question - 3 of them with a little surrounding information.

Cutting through all your explantion, if your refrigerent pressure
without the motor running (rest pressure) is 22 you are low on
refrigerent. That puff of cold air is the compressor running for just
a moment and then shutting down on the low pressure switch. The thing
to do is to go to a shop and have the system tested for leaks,
repaired, flushed, vacumed and them refilled with fresh oil and
refrigerent. They should change the valve cores in the access ports,
and the dryer if the system is contaminated. You should insist they
refill with R-12 but there are other drop-in replacements available.
Try not to get talked into R-134. If the car sat a long time it might
just be that the seal on the compressor dried out and leaked. It will
be fine if you use it once in a while. The other common source of
leaks is the larger hose (discharge hose) that comes off the back of
the compressor and runs foward to the condensor coil. It is good
insurance to just replace it at the time of service so you don't lose
your refigerent again. Do not run the A/C at these pressures, you will
suck in contamination and damage things. Especially if the low
pressure switch is not working or is jumped out and the compressor is
running with the suction pressure going negative.
