[DML] Fixed my AC! +observations/questions

A big thanks goes out to who ever posted the cheap do it yourself AC 
fix in the tech section. I followed his advice very closely and now 
I have cold air! But.....

Here is the one weird thing the system is doing:

When the blower fans are NOT on the ac will cycle at idle. If the 
blower fan is on the ac stops cycling and the pressure reads 
constant 45psi on the low side. If I turn the blower fan off the 
pressure will go from 45 down to 25 as the compressor refrigerates 
and then repeat, cycling over and over. Why does this not happen 
with the fan on? 

I filled the system with about 28oz of 134a, I am afraid to put more 
in it because it reads 45psi with the blower fans on and I do not 
want to over charge the system. 

I would say the vent temps are in the low 40s with the outside 
ambient temp at 95 deg. I just returned from a 400 mile trip and had 
the AC on the whole time. 

Any suggestions or wisdom?
