Hi, I'm new to the forum, but I'm hoping to get some help from the those in the know. Here's the short of it:
I was trying to recharge the A/C on my 2002 WRX and the compressor completely stopped turning. Initially, I attached the recharge can to the low pressure valve as instructed, but the pressure gauge did not register any movement whatsoever. Again following instructions, I released about half of the can into the system, waited 3 minutes, and tried again. Then, I heard a low pop or knock, the compressor stopped spinning, and the needle on the recharge can finally registered pressure (about 35 psi - within the desired range). Now, the compressor doesn't spin, and the A/C still doesn't blow cold. Any suggestions? Thanks for your advice!
