[DML] Re: Quick A/C pressure question...

Are you measuring the pressure with the A/C running? If you are the
pressure is way too high DO NOT ADD ANY REFRIGERENT! The system may
have air in it or some kind of different refrigerent besides R-12. If
that is the pressure at rest the pressure is low. You really shouldn't
add refrigerent without monitoring the high side too. Make sure the
coils (both condensor AND evaporator) are clean and are getting plenty
of airflow. Very difficult to know how much freon is in the system.
The only accurate way is to remove it and measure. This kind of work
is best left to a shop with the proper equipment.
