    A/C Question. I live in AZ!! Need adcvice

    My car's A/C blows cold and gets cool pretty fast, even on a hot day here in AZ. The only problem is sometimes (every few minutes) it'll warm up, it doesn't get hot but it'll just warm up a little bit.

    I'm guessing it just needs a recharge?? If it does do you guys have any experience or recommendations in recharging it with refrigerant bought from auto stores or is it best to get it done professionally at a shop??

    Do not guess. Take it to a shop and have it checked. The symptoms you describe could be normal, or could be due to a number of things (and IMO a low charge isn't one of them). In any case, get someone to put gauges on the system and check your pressures.

    Got it checked out today and it turns out the level of refrigerant in the system was low

    They completely drained it and added new refrigerant plus some kinda liquid that shows where leaks are under ultra violet light, I have to bring it back after 300mi of driving. Hopefully it doesn't have a leak!!

    Anyways, thanks again for the advice. That's one less thing less on my check list before I upgrade the turbo
